On occasion of Turin’s Smart City Festival Visible Cities, and as a warm-up to Share Festival 2012, Action Sharing is proud to present Cymatics by Suguru Goto. Cymatics is a kinetic sound sculpture that expresses the artist’s vision of nature, which harmonises a series of symbolic elements in a technological context.
Sound waves act on natural elements such as water, bringing it into motion to create harmonious environments. Cymatics creates environments that are both metaphysical and spiritual at the same time. A place where art becomes a bridge between the material and spiritual worlds, between technology and nature, the humanities and science. Water is put into motion, creating an environment in which sound waves transform the element into geometrical shapes. Music to be seen and images to be heard are the outcome of a creative tour de force by the artist, in his search to give a sensory representation of the complexity of human perception.
The interactive sculpture, produced in partnership with the LIM, will be powered by solar energy. This blending of nature and technological innovation is brought to you by the Torino Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Regional Museum of Natural Science, the Environment Park, Vass Technologies and Gallo Legnami.
Suguru Goto is a composer, musician, inventor and multimedia artist, considered one of the most innovative representatives of a new generation of Japanese artists.
His works have been presented at leading international festivals, such as Resonaces/IRCAM, Sonar, ICC, Haus der Kultures der Welt, ISEA, NIME, STRP Festival 2009, the Venice Biennale and the Share Festival.
Action Sharing is a platform created in 2006 as the production arm of Piemonte Share, bringing together artists, engineers, computer scientists and local companies to develop research projects that combine art and innovation. Action Sharing is sponsored by the Torino Chamber of Commerce.
The installation will be opened at 7 PM on 30th May, 2012 in Piazzale Valdo Fusi, Turin, by Guido Bolatto, Secretary General of the Torino Chamber of Commerce, and Enzo Lavolta, Torino City Councillor for Innovation.
The work will be open to the public from 31st May to 5th June, 2012 in Piazzale Valdo Fusi, Turin, 12–8 PM daily.
30 MAG / SHARE FESTIVAL CYMATICS DI SUGURU GOTO
In occasione della manifestazione “Le Città Visibili” Action Sharing, warm up di Share Festival 2012, presenta Cymatics di Suguru Goto: una scultura cinetica sonora che racconta la visione dell’artista della natura, armonizzando alcuni elementi simbolo in un contesto tecnologico. Onde sonore agiscono su materiali naturali come l’acqua mettendola in moto per creare ambienti in armonia. Per “Le città visibili” questa scultura interattiva verrà alimentata da energia solare. Questa integrazione di natura ed innovazione tecnologica è realizzata grazie al sostegno della Camera di Commercio di Torino e al supporto di Enviromental Park e Vass Technologies. Action Sharing è una piattaforma creata nel 2006 dal ramo produttivo di Piemonte Share dove artisti, ingegneri, informatici e aziende del territorio si possono incontrare per sviluppare dei progetti di ricerca sul filo conduttore dell’arte e dell’innovazione. sito web: www.toshare.it piazzale Valdo Fusi
