RE – Trasformatorio Residency

Flown in from the volcanic center of the Mediterranean to the northern comforts RE is in Amsterdam for the first FORLMAL Trasformatorio residency out of Sicily.

The concept is developed in connection with Hansko Visser, Dierk Roosen and NDSM Treehouse but, since the venue in north of Central Station is a bit late opening, is taking place for now in FBP studio: in Marcusstraat 52.

RE will start exploring and transforming starting out from the themes available in the dying cultural landscape of heavily gentrified Amsterdam, starting from sowers and garbage as a good artist should. So far we attempted the rescue of a huge rat and failed, found a behive of dead bees abandoned below a luxe condo and noted the brand new Lotus parked in its garage.

RE will move at the end of the month to Groningen for a 2 week intensive transformation organised by Hansko Visser named temporarily ” modern icons for the non-saintly, floating” and realise a more complex work for the northern city.

During her work in A-town you can reach her via fredd: consider donations in old windows and good stories.

UPDATE
The
opening of her exposition in guerrilla gallery “Pilot” on the canal of the Spilsluizen in Groningen will be on Sunday 13th of October, from 15.00 onwards, with live/life-boat- instant-composed-music by carefully selected famous improvisers.

A beautiful gift to the town, to celebrate its last horeca-free zone!(dutch for gentrified leisure) 

We will have bread and wine.

Rosa Dei Venti

An installation about the human will to control the god-made elements.

By Alberto Novello a.k.a. JesterN

During the Residency at the Trasformatorio in Montealbano (Sicily), the wind was blowing so much that i wished i could stop it with a simple gesture. So i decided to build an installation in the pitch-dark long corridor of the museum of the castle to recreate the scary atmosphere of a storm at night and allow the visitors to control/play with “the elements”.

In line with the concept of the Trasformatorio, the challenge was how to create a big convincing storm sound and be eco-friendly. Usually big sound requires big expensive equipment in terms of money and energy.

I captured the sound of the wind outside and diffused it through several loudspeakers which were enough to deliver the high what do viagra and cialis do if taken together frequencies of the wind character. I used resonators to make vibrate the walls, windows and metals plates of the castle to generate a bigger, more realistic low thundery sound. Finally i programmed a wireless sensor system (powered by cell phone batteries) to allow the people to control the intensity of the wind with their hands.

The whole system could run on solar energy. During the day a solar panel would charge a car battery and during the night the electricity could power the whole installation: amplifiers, computer and sensors.

Thanks to Daniele Pisasale/Insolaria for the sun energy system and STEIM/Marije Baalman for the SenseStage microcontroller boards.
