TRIPLE CONJUNCTION

From a mere technical point of view the TV/video screen comes alive by a controlled beam of electrons in the cathode ray tube. For ‘Energie!’ an uncontrolled high voltage discharge of 30.000 volts exposes multiple sheets of photographic paper which are then arranged in time to create new visual systems of electron organization. Even though the result is abstract it tells a universal story older than the world itself.

Music by Jens Thiele.

A triple conjunction is an astronomical event, where two planets or a planet and a star meet each other three times in a short period either in opposition or at the time of inferior conjunction, if an inferior planet is involved. The visible movement of the planet or the planets in the sky is therefore normally prograde at the first conjunction, retrograde at the second conjunction and again prograde at the third conjunction.” (Wikipedia)

How do artists reflect the year 2010? It is the beginning year of predictions of the end of the world, catastrophes and natural destructions. With anxiety, humor or indifference? Ecological, social and economical positions are influencing our daily reconsideration of ourselves, our environment and political changes. Artistic reflections in media art are often inspirations for an other view on our planet and our lives. Already our school mathematics have taught us that the terms indivisible and parallel are clear contradictions, as by definition not congruent. After the infinitesimal calculation we wonder that a projection of a point into infinity can become a plane. And after Einstein’s theories and the fundamental changes of the structural concepts our practical trust into the categories of elementary sciences is shaken and is daily shaken further. Gradually the sciences are transforming the conventional view on our universe into a complex system of interdependencies, which is not only beyond the general understanding and description, but is rattling the basics of the absolute proof of mathematics and physics. Random, chance, dynamic erratic developments, instability or quite generally the dissolve from order to chaos are the synonyms for this confusion, a kind of Heisenberg’s "relation of the unsharp" of causality. Today we have turned our world into a giant laboratory, more uncontrolled than controlled. Notions like illusion, imagination, appearance and being are loosing their distinctiveness. The objectivity of opinion and explanation depends on the axiom of the subjective point of view.

About Festival
Pixxelpoint is one of the most successful and renowned festivals of new media art in Slovenia and also abroad. Its purpose is firstly, to bring the information technology and new media art closer to the general public, and secondly, to raise awareness about a different potential to use computer among the young. In previous editions the festival had a big media response and over 3000 visitors visited it every year, so this is a challenge for the organizers to further expand it and trespass the boundaries of the gallery space which has become too small for all the projects which are to be carried out. The exhibition of new media art projects, as the central event of the festival will be mounted at City Gallery Nova Gorica but will include also other locations, besides we will also include a symposium on the given topic, as well as workshops run by guest-lecturers. Accompanying activities will include numerous concerts by well-known music performers.
