Imagosphere is an interdisciplinary project that links art and science in its own idiosyncratic way. We coin the term „imagosphere“, that signifies invisible and inaudible phenomena in which is sunk all the living kind. It comprises on scientific side electromagnetic waves (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, radio waves, wireless camera circuits, GSM nets etc.) and on the „other“ side electric „ghosts“, hallucinations and – at last, but not least – artistic performance with our DIY self-constructed machine called Imagograph.
We use this machine, that allows to measure, sonify and visualize inaudible and invisible, both to precisely measure the intensity of wide range of electromagnetic waves (100 MHz – 6 GHz) and to create the artistic images, urban maps, „wavelength carpets“, etc. using obtained measured data. We also perform theatre-like walks carrying the Imagograph on our back with live sonification and visualization of above mentioned phenomena. The walk-performances include reciting texts that draw the attention to electro-smog and excessive and unreflected use of cell phones and Wi-Fi and other devices. Another important part on the performance is a friendly-to-environment delimitation of electromagnetic fields into living space of the city and thematising of electromagnetism with artistic comprehensibly and proximity.
Ondřej Vavrečka studied languages, Humanities and then Film editing and then Centre of audivisual studies – both last at Film faculty at Academy of performing arts in Prague. His main principle of work is collage, montage, assamblage. He also plays musical instruments and works with 16 mm film, with objects found at streets, at the see or in the forests, with fragments of texts and theories.
Michal Kindernay is intermedia artist working with interactive connections of sound, image, and other inputs, in an environment of (not only) computer applications. His works include video performances, installations, sound and interactive projects often with ecological aspects. He is one of the founders or yo-yo non profit organization, member of Kravin "KRA" collective and Školská 28 gallery in Prague.
