Use the material found on site. Install lines at equal distance form each other. Amplify the sound of objects moving on those lines. Break down the movement into single pulses. interruption. glitch. waiting.
”sailing experiment” has been created on site, during few weeks of exploration in Skup Palet space using material found on site.
”It is a continuation of explorations with kinetic and site specific installations. In earlier projects I have been interested in how the movement of animated devices, which I designed, can produce images through either visual or sonic traces. I have been recording their traces on photographic paper, drawing their repetitive movements on walls, letting them cast their own shadows on surfaces, amplifying and recording the sound theyproduced while moving.
In sailing experiment, animated objects are slowly sliding on lines stretch in the space. Their subtle movements are producing sound, light and shadows, as they are moving. I am interested in how the uneasy wandering into that space, how the small events happening or not happening in sailing experiment can lead to an extended experience of time and attention.”
Diane Morin (1974) lives and works in Montreal, Canada. She graduated with an MFA in Open Media from Concordia University in Montreal in 2003. She has been creating installations since 1998, joining her work with kinetic art and new media by using a wide range of material and expressions. Her work has been shown in several Canadien exhibitions, among them Effleurements (2008) at The Society for arts and technology[SAT] in Montreal, Effondrements at Mercer Union in Toronto and recently in Sweden at Electrohype 2008 at the Malmö Konsthall, Malmö. She did several artist residencies including the Banff Center for the Art, Alberta, Canada, Art3, Valence, France and the Finnish Artists’ Studio Fondation in Finland, and curently at Independent Study at Valand School of Fine Arts, Göteborg.
