La cibernética se toma las salas del MAVI:

El Redesarmo de lo cotidiano


• En una instalación conjunta de Roberto Larraguibel, Yto Aranda y Nury Gaviola, los artistas pretenden generar una conexión real – a través de la tecnología – con el espectador.


 • La instalación, que es un proyecto Fondart, está abierta al público del 8 de abril al 22 de junio.


Santiago, marzo 2009.- [re][des]arm[o] es una exhibición que utiliza el recurso tecnológico para dar vida a un organismo cibernético que consta de 6 piezas acopladas por sensores que lo auto estimulan, a la vez que captan la presencia del espectador, conformando una red de percepción y experimentación en constante cambio. “El objetivo de nuestra propuesta es crear un espacio  de arte  habitado por  objetos cibernéticos que interpreten y remeden nuestra conducta, llevándonos a replantear  un devenir en una comunidad hombre-máquina”, explican los autores.


“Esperamos convocar  el asombro del público frente a la interacción de estos objetos cibernéticos, con la repetición  y deformación de imágenes reflejadas, con la ilusión de atmósferas visuales, con la generación o síntesis sonora en respuesta a estímulos simples y complejos; todo, ante la supervisión permanente de entidades de vigilancia cibernética”, aseguran.


[re][des]arm[o] está ensamblado por intermedio de elementos escultóricos que crean la sensación de ingresar a una red cibernética. Las salas del museo conforman, en su totalidad, un circuito que conecta procesadores digitales y objetos. La utilización de diversos lenguajes y conceptos estéticos permiten  la creación de un espacio sensorial para interactuar  y manipular dentro de los espacios materiales y virtuales de esta propuesta. Un concepto sonoro y lumínico da continuidad a la obra en sus distintos espacios, haciendo que este organismo cobre vida propia mientras avanza por distintos estados condicionados por la presencia del espectador y por su propia interacción de autómatas.

 

[re][des]arm[o] es una obra conjunta de Roberto Larraguibel, Yto Aranda y Nury Gaviola, quienes se adjudicaron un Fondart en 2008 para realizar esta puesta en escena.



Proyecto Financiado por Consejo Nacional de la Cultura y las Artes Fondart.



[re][des]arm[o]



The goal of our proposal is to create an art space occupied by objects that interact with our cyber-behavior. 

Inanimate control systems that somehow reveals a subject-object dialogue, allowing the environment to modify perception of the viewer, while altering the sensory area of the machine.

It attempts to provoke the public with the interaction of objects, the response of a simple or complex stimuli and the creation of a conceptually fun atmosphere that is supervised by cybernetic surveillance entities, which finally exports this perceptual experiment through the Web .

Our foundation is based on the thousands of imperceptible [net][works] operating in a distance that unite seemingly independent events. What happens in one region of the world is not indifferent to the events that happen elsewhere in the world: indeed, the occurrences are interrelated.

The pulse of the desire of the masses is monitored in an extensive and exhaustive manner by cyber vigilantes that manage to obtain corrections and adjustments in order to shape future consumption; hence the objects that sustain it.

The affinities, aesthetic preferences, desires, needs, feelings, words and themes that are inserted in the mouth of the collective: manipulated in the distance by the old TV and the revitalized multi-thematic book and the theme of endlessness embodied by the Internet for the benefit and subjugation of Being.

Through the tools that technology provides us, our proposal creates an approximation of the man-machine relationship through various languages of art.
In this manner, we give life to 5 auto-stimulated spaces connected to a [vi]gil[ante], that capture the viewer's presence, to build an experimental and perceptory network that is constantly changing.

Work

[re][des]arm[o] is constructed as a counterpoint to various commands, networks, and voices.

Each area of the installation is a dialogue fragment which contributes to the overall meaning of the work. Through various forms and languages, we create a perceptual traffic movement thereby assembling the installation’s material with its sensory and virtual movement.

 

[re][des]arm[o] navigates between the poles of imagination and the construction of “domestic" forms to offer a voyage: touches of light as a significant etched pulse; a threshold for our footsteps, reflecting the helplessness of a society saturated with stimuli and often starved of its own humanity; the delirium of human parody, which tries to conceptualize the symbolic chaos of signal transmission before a peremptory order of language that encapsulates our own inability to communicate and comprehend.

The work uses structural concepts such as: fragment of Bach, different meanings of voice, alphanumeric notations, QBasic, Asembly, textual languages, codes of light, harmonic modulations, phrases written under the spell of the web, reminiscences and obsessions that will be the symbolic fabric of this drawing: a perceptible dialogue between subject/object that is accentuated by the serial communication between machine and speaker.

[re][des]arm[o] is a proposition that organizes itself by paraphrasing the web, creating a kind of organism that comes to life itself as it moves to different states conditioned by the presence of the viewer and the machines’ own interactions.

[re][des]arm[o] is a joint work of Roberto Larraguibel, Aranda Yto, and Nury Gaviola, who are part of an interdisciplinary medialab within the framework of this work.
