CHRONICLE_THERAPY! BY VENZHA CHRIST

9 04 2009

Performance at the ADAPT! (Part One) exhibition opening

Saturday, April 18 @ 7 PM @ MeetFactory

CHRONICLE_THERAPY! is a sound performance that explores the electromagnetic spectrum. In addition to television, radio and mobile phone signals, all other electronic devices send out and can be affected by electromagnetic signals. The same is true for humans and other living beings: we are always immersed in the electromagnetic spectrum that we have to adapt to.

The performance has been created in the context of the Education Focus Programme (EFP) initiated by Venzha Christ. The Education Focus Program (EFP) is a project conceived of in terms of a developing country where New Media art is currently not widely available. The main goal of the project is to build a modern conception of a future between technology and people. It thus includes activities and research focusing on people, technology, communities, and beyond. The EFP challenges people to approach their everyday environment differently.
