Downtime (post-domestic fiction) is an interactive installation about the representation of a system consisting of vintage electric appliances.
Through hacking practices the system attempts to redefine appliances’ initial identities. By adjusting the objects towards different uses, their impairment is defined not as an outcome, but as an opportunity to review their functional capabilities.
Through the active participation of the viewer, the objects are examined within a new context, in terms of how these are kept active and accessible by its reuse and manipulation.
Downtime is the outcome of the Damn Lab: Creative Coding and New Media workshop, which took place at Frown Tails and was instructed by Marinos Koutsomichalis.
Participating artists: Ioanna Agelopoulou, Nefeli Georgakopoulou, Veroniki Korakidou, Marinos Koutsomichalis, Antonis Lyras, Afroditi Psarra, Maria Varela.
