MEMORIA NORWAY - LIVE PERFORMANCE (2010)
»THERE ARE PLACES IN OUR HEADS ONE CAN TRAVEL TO«
A LIVE COLLAGE BY MEANS OF THE ARTISTIC TRANSFORMATION OF SOUNDS AND IMAGES INTO A POETIC EQUIVALENT OF MEMORIES

During their explorations, SpringerParker collect fragments of sound and image and they will create collages of these in the live performances, so that they put together their own definition of the emergence, perception, and memory of a geographical region – the landscape of the Finnmark in North Norway.

VIDEO
The starting point is image material on transparent film, which has been recorded on location as photographs and frottages. Like playing a musical instrument, these are then collaged live on a glass table illuminated from above, while a camera records the images from below. The artists visually manipulate and project live the image signals that are produced, using custom-developed software.

SOUND
The artists record natural sounds in the landscapes of the Finnmark using special microphones. For the sound, the artists have developed an omnidirectional sound system that works like the soundbox of a musical instrument, so that the notes will be transmitted into space from various points, while the audience wanders around.
