"The Imaginary of Electromagnetic Transformations"
by Maja Smrekar
This time 3rd Channel presents video material that has been created in the third/last series of the original project The imaginarium of electromagnetic transformations, which was executed on 26 November 2009 by Maja Smrekar and Luka Prinčič within the project CIRKULACIJA 2 and Net.Art Community Convention/MediaLab Graz.
The dialogue happened in real time as a live-stream performance linking MMC Kiberpipa in Ljubljana and Kunsthaus Graz in Austria. While conceiving and executing her projects, the intermedia artist Maja Smrekar seeks to rearticulate the use of new and old technologies from a socially critical viewpoint, as well as expose interdisciplinarily and interactively the synergy of mutual relations between fields of science, art and technology in relation to the systems of subjective perception of space and repressive systems of power and control. She thus wishes to reinterpret diverse phenomena of past and present media environments in an analytic manner, as well as warn critically of potential images of future realities of media and the society.
