From 24th May to 26th October it will be possibe to visit an installation “Biotricity” by Rasa Smite and Raitis Smits in an exhibition “Eco-Visionaries” in the Laboral center, Spain.
Eco-visionaries presents twelve national and international artistic positions that explore the new connections between the biosphere and the technosphere, the latter marked by the imperative presence of the human being on a planet of limited resources.
It is precisely these relationships that the exhibition debates, through a selection of aesthetic and conceptual approaches, utopian narratives and counter-models ecosystemic to share with a wide audience, also through an educational program and mediation over five months.
The installation “Biotricity” by Rasa Smite and Raitis Smits consists of a double cell “bacteria battery”, where the electricity is generated by micro-organisms living in a mud. The fluctuation of bacteria electricity is interpreted into realtime two channel sound. Simultaneously, the video on the screen is manipulated by the live sound and interpreted into realtime glitch visualisations. The installation is complemented by digital prints with the electronic microscope images showing the bacteria environment in different scales.
