In 1967 György Kepes founded the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge/USA. The exhibition "The Future Archive" at the Neuer Berliner Knstverein is presenting some of the positions developed in the 1960th and 1970th by different artists, designers and srchitects there. The directors of the CAVS like György Kepes and Otto Pienwere were influenced by the post worldwar II modernity around the Bauhaus ecole. The CAVS founded the so called "Techno Social movement". Their often collective and interdisciplinary projects inspire artists until today. The Video shows two examples of artists working in this frame.
For exmple the environmental installation "Photon Voice", CAVS/M.I.T., NEA Inter-arts Project, June, 1986. In Collaboration with the Laura Knott Dance Company. Light encoding and transmitting installation /performance designed to encode sound, images, and motion into sunlight. Details of sun tracking sculpture, and receiving stations that decode the sunlight's "radiation pressure" to construct microscopic sculptural forms from the interaction of photons with electrons in matter.
The Exhibition in Berlin is running until the 29th of july 2012.
