The Sounds of the world at Taiga Gallery, Saint Petersburg

My installation The Sounds of the World will be exhibited at Taiga Creative Space, in Saint Petersburg, from 30 January until 14 February, within the framework of the festival Cyberfest – one of the largest international media art festivals.

CYFEST was founded in St. Petersburg in 2007 by independent artists and curators. The festival promotes the emergence of new forms of art and high technology interactions, developing professional connections between artists, curators, engineers and programmers around the world and exposing wide audiences to the works in the field of robotics, video art, sound art and net art. Over the years, the festival has invited artists from Russia, USA, Germany, Japan, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Finland, Italy, the Philippines and other countries.

Taiga Creative Space – 10th CYFEST , February 2017, St. Petersburg, Russia

The installation is built on a network of Raspberry Pi computers and created from a series of Andrei Tarkovsky film clips.

The main idea of this installation is to explore the concept of audio-visual sampling, in which real-world images and sounds- captured and digitized are cut and mixed in order to generate new audio-visual materials.
