SONICPLATTFORMING - Workshop
and installation at Spajalica Rijeka Croatia May 2013
Plattformer and James Dunn were invited for a two week residency by the
Muzej Moderne i Suvremene Umjetnosti(MMSU) Rijeka/Croatia to take part
in Spajalica > Copula - Art interventions in public space.
The project was run as participatory workshop
that would result in the making of a portable sonic pong installation.
The collective visit of local scrap and recycling yards to reclaim
materials for the installation played an important part in the process. As public work base we chose the entrance area
of the derelict Teatro Fenice, located on a popular local route of
people visiting the centre.
Sound samples of the making, conversations and
of favourite places in Rijeka were recorded and edited by the
participants and applied as samples to play with to the finished table.
