On 16 August Bruno De Wachter will circle around the Charleroi (Brussels South) airport, 15 kilometers.

From Friday 22 August till Sunday 24 August, Bruno De Wachter will circle around the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, 49 kilometers.

He's inviting you to come with him. The idea is to ignore the airport and the planes, and to look at what lays around instead.

Cycloramadrome is a project in which the spectators can interact with the work in the immersive ambient environment. Exploiting the technology of 360-degree projection developed in the 50s, the artist sets out to utilize aspects of the surrounding environment as a vehicle for impacting on the audience both mentally and physically: the movements of the characters are designed to trigger the movement of the audience. The artist uses modern technology to explore the complexity of common behavioral patterns as well as the public’s “iconophilia”, or constant manic love for images.

From 2011 until 2013 Various Artists explored the theme Agriculture, and more specific the cultivation of corn in the past, present, and future. This project is called Zea Mays is part of his G-ke series of installations about Geopolitics. 

 

The production of maize for non-traditional uses, not related to human consumption is a threat for it's future diversity. Bio-plastics, biofuel, forage, and high fructose corn syrup are all examples of applications that opens the doors for GMO corn.

Recently Mexico, a region at the origin of a huge diversity of maize, accepted the introduction of genetic manipulated corn into their food system. This decision risks to be followed by other countries, including Europe where GMO hasn't wide spread yet. Longterm research about GMO is insufficient but already proved to be unhealthy for human consumption.

 

Zea Mays reflects upon this possible future of corn in a visual, abstract way. Data, and research of the past, present, and future of maize, and its relation with feeding of an ever growing global population is being translated in various ways (human mathematics, drawings, carpets).

A laboratory is a facility that provides conditions in which research, experiments, and measurement may be performed. There exist many different forms of laboratories from scientific to computer to clandestine labs, etc. So what can an ecological media art lab be? And what does it have to offer? In recent years many organizations are using the lemma "lab" to emphasize their experimental and research-oriented character. A lab in our sense should be a diverse set of facilities, distributed across the partner locations but connected. An experiment to share culture and art with the surroundings and environment in a more consistent and sustainable way. To make a different art, an art that is related to the environment in which we live/work. As a model ALOTOF could develop into a string of places that mutually are getting affected by new insights, new works, new artists. But more than a mere perturbation of information. A new mode of creating.

 

ALOTOF [A Laboratory On The Open Fields] is a new collaborative and longer-term project by 4 partners OKNO (be), ECOS (fr), Yo-Yo (cz) and nadine (be) and a lot of associated partners throughout Europe. The basic idea is to organize a dynamical outdoor laboratory where all creative activities can take place in.

We start from the garden or field, and move on with our media technology and artistic tools, to look into new ways of perceiving and making art, outside, as an experiment in durability. The necessity of finding new materials and methods to work with, new effectuators and outcomes to emerge.

Twice we work throughout the 4 seasons, marked by changes in the weather, the differences in climate and how all plants and animals, insects and bacterias make up the consortium of actors that define our surroundings.

ALOTOF deploys its 5 key approaches to getting its hands dirty with nature and build an unique connected and distributed lab, shared by all participants: constructions, measurements, patterns, learnings and wanderings, performances.
