During the last two months seven select groups of creatives in and around PLATFORM4 have been working intensely on building unique art pieces that are challenged by technology in a way that involves people in an interactive way. These efforts have resulted in the PLAYFORM exhibition, where the interactive projects are presented to the world and can be experienced together: Try ao. digital pillow fight, electric fingerpainting and a pen that converts your drawings into sound.
The exhibition vernissage is Thursday May 10 - and thereafter the exhibition can be visited over the weekend, where PLATFORM4 is also having an open house in it's new setting in Karolinelund.
Teaser video from one of the projects - "Granny's Backyard" - by Tim Garbos and Martin Fasterholdt:
Earlier this year PLATFORM4 sent out an open call for ideas of interactive art and technology projects from it's own users as well as collaborators across the country. Subsequently the seven best ideas were selected to produce the exhibition based on the idea to combine artistic practice with with new exciting technologies - as well as interact with the audience.
Behind the selected contributions stand local (and international residents) Andres Koczka & Karl Heding, Morten Jensen & Karina Abramova, Victor Rohu & Agata Klusak, Louise Toft and Anne Sofie Juul Sørensen, as well as Tim Garbos & Martin Fasterholdt from Copenhagen - and last, but not least - Pernille Kofoed from Aarhus. All of which are self-taught creative who share a general interest in technology.
This group is indeed a creative bunch, and for the exhibition they have been conceptualizing and buildling projects that evolve around digital pillow fight, digitally mirrored video "mapping", interaction between electrocity and nature, electric fingerpainting via sensors, a machine that can convert LEGO-construtions into a kind of animation and a pencil that transforms writing into sound impulses.
All this can be experienced on Thursday, where PLATFORM4 open its doors to the vernissage at 18.30 - as well as the day after from 12.00-19.30, which coincides with the official opening of the Karolinelund Park and thereby also the unveiling of Platform4's new settings within the park. Everyone are welcome for both vernissage and exhibition, and there is no admission fee.
The exhibition is, by the way, built into a modified freight container, and is therefore mobile. PLATFORM4 are currently working on setting up arrangements with a handful of municipalities across Nordjylland to showcase the exhibition in other cities across the northern part of Denmark.
PLAYFORM is supported by Kulturaftale Nordjylland.
