Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to postpone the presentation of LFS2 at FIBER Weekends. FIBER and the artists (in collaboration with KIKK) are working on the Amsterdam presentation of LFS2 in the coming weeks.
LFS2 is an installation originating from the two artists’ ongoing research into dynamic architectures composed of solid and ephemeral media. The artists treat audiovisual media, orchestrated and autonomous artificial entities as building blocks for immersive, emergent architectures. The territories of digital and analog media, solid matter and sensory experience fade into each other in these artificial ecosystems.
In LFS2, innovative and antiquated technologies meet in a forest of light and sound emitting nodes intersected by monolithic optical fiber artifacts. Sculptural light beams orchestrate the emergent pulsing and waving field emerging from the swarm of autonomous units that radiate signal waves in both light and sound.
LFS2 is commissioned work by FIBER in collaboration with KIKK festival (Namur, BE).
Mariska de Groot and Dieter Vandoren are members of the artist collective iii. Their work explores speculative branches in the tree of media evolution. Using both new and obsolete technologies they create instruments and performances that engage with the human senses and the human body.
