1. Drapery FM (2012) is an audio-tactile installation by Ebru Kurbak and Irene Posch, realized during the Artist-in-Residency at V2_. Drapery FM consists of a knitted piece of fabric that can electronically communicate the story of how it had been made to and through the surrounding radio receivers. The piece of fabric is essentially a micro FM transmitter that is, for the most part, made from copper wire and wool. Tuned into the right radio frequency, radios within the transmission range of this fabric receive and play out the sound recordings made during its production.

  2. "pulse" is an interactive media art installation by Jona Hoier and Markus Murschitz, which tracks, analyzes and visualizes the visitors of the AIT Mobility Department. A person is represented by a pulsating point - with reference to the human heartbeat - leaving traces in the system. On a regular basis the system switches to a replay mode. During replay 16 previously captured traces overlay and therefore show the movement pattern accumulated in the past.

    Concept & realization by Jona Hoier & Markus Murschitz in collaboration with Markus Ray & Norbert Brändle (AIT) and Susanne Seitinger (MIT Media Lab)

  3. Feather Tales II by Ricardo O'Nascimento and Ebru Kurbak is a responsive environment that arose from an imaginary scenario in which a secretive dialogue between electromagnetic waves and their material surroundings become vaguely visible, thus captivating.

    The installation is composed of 200 reactive units that hold 1000 white ostrich feathers distributed in the Sala Nueva of LABoral. Each reactive unit includes an electromagnetic signal sensor, a processor, a servo motor and movable feathers. When a signal is detected in the proximity of a sensor, the feathers start to flicker and move accordingly. The units are sensitive to a variety of frequencies ranging from mobile telephony to WiFi and bluetooth. Hence, the visitors are provided with the chance to interact with the environment using their personal devices.


    Feather Tales II is commissioned by LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial

  4. Quadrature is a audio/visual performance project by Griduo* in collaboration with Due3* that interacts with the perception of santralistanbul Art and Culture Center’s Main Gallery building located in Istanbul/Turkey. It shows how audio/visual techniques can transform, create, expand, amplify and interpret spaces by using large scale video projections on architecture.

    It is a live audio/visual performance composed of animated monochrome geometrical shapes matching the real size and form of the quadrilateral alluminium modules which form the facade of the building. The visual performance is accompanied with a digitally produced soundscape consisting of abstract sounds synchronized to the movement of images re-shaping and transforming the building on which they are projected. The building in turn influences and transforms the projections as well.

    *Griduo is formed of Alican Aktürk and Refik Anadol both graduate students and teaching assistants in İstanbul Bilgi University Visual Communication Design. Working in the fields of live video/audio performance and architectural photography, the duo is particularly interested in the relationship between architecture and media.

  5. 'Augmented Structures v2.0' by Refik Anadol and Alper Derinbogaz is a distilled urban experience project which focuses on two dissimilar regions in istanbul and displays the inner characteristics of the texture of a city-center that has undergone a recent transformation within a suburban region consisting of gated communities. Presented at Istanbul Design Biennial within the 'Musibet' exhibition curated by local architect Emre Arolat, the work is based on soundscape and data mapping of two regions reveals the invisible information about their context and suggests an alternative way to understand the existence of urbanization through new media technologies.

    By bringing disparate disciplines like sound, architecture and visual arts together, the development re-examines the world in aesthetic terms, in its capacity as an 'interdisciplinary transformation'. 'augmented structures series forces each discipline to alter its own 'material' state; transforming sound into mathematics, mathematics into architecture and architecture into a living structure, while presenting the viewer with a new media experience that is multi-levelled, produces sound, moves and breathes.'

    The team is diversified by sound designer Kerim Karaoglu and parametric designers Coşku Cinkılıç, Koray Bingöl. — at Istanbul Modern | Istanbul Museum of Modern Art.
