    ‘Let’s now delve deep into the fluff’
    Massimo Banzi, Getting Started with Arduino

    Following the development of a simple thread into complex new media objects, the exhibition will touch upon recent developments in the areas of wearable technology and electronic sculpting through lumino light objects and the presentation of Arduino microcontrollers.

    Dealing with sculptural textile (J. Štefanec) and electronic thread (A. Klančić), designed substance and new meanings of objects (P. Dona), as well as socially responsible textile art (M. M. Pungerčar), the exhibition presents an overview of contemporary new media directions and questions the meaning of the medium as such. The social and emacipatory aspects of textile arts are clear - they invoke thoughts of industrial manufacturing, DIY subculture and self-sustained systems, especially in relation to recent similar developments in the fields of open source and wearable technology (Arduino, Body Pixel Studio).

    Device Art 2.006

    The term “Device_art” signifies an artistic production based on creative use of new or oldtechnologies and includes mechanisms based on analogue or digital technology, concepts basedon creative or resourceful use of media, robots, archaic devices, kinetic-optic works, interactiveprojects… “Device_art” is the name of a cultural and artistic performance which blurs the boundaries between art, technology and design thus offering a different way of understanding art and its relationship with technology and vice versa.

    In 2004, together with the curator duo from Zagreb - KONTEJNER | the bureau for modern artpractices – we organized the first international exhibition “Device_art” with the aim to initiate, map
    and contextualize artistic practice which comes into existence with the help of modern technology.The exhibition garnered a lot of public interest and turned out to be a great success.

    This year “Device_art” was spatially and conceptually broadened, which means that the Multimedia Institute in Zagreb and the Blasthaus Gallery from San Francisco got involved with the project.This means the exhibition turned into a several days long event which starts with the exhibition and performances in the Galženica Gallery and continues and ends in the Tvornica Jedinstvo in Zagreb with an exhibition and lectures dedicated to the relationship between art and technology. Also, in November this year the “Device_art” exhibition will be presented in the Boca Gallery and the RXGallery in San Francisco.

    Device Art

    This first international exhibition of this type is realized in collaboration with the curatorial team “Kontejner” from Zagreb and presents the continuation of art and cultural activities dedicated to the establishing the dialogue between man and machine, art and technology, which around mid-20th century placed the Zagreb art scene into relevant European art events (New Tendencies).

    13 artists from Slovenia, Croatia and Italy participated: Vedran Relja (Association of Technical Culture from Zaprešić), Tomislav Brajnović, Vuk Ćosić, Davide Grassi, Lina Kovačević, Dubravko Kuhta a.k.a Tesla, Ivan Marušić Klif, Tomaž Pipp, Borut Savski, Sašo Sedlaček, Berislav Šimičić. Marijan Vejvoda, Silvio Vujičić, Nenad Vukušić Sebastijan, Branko Zupan.

    The exhibited works equally question traditional, analogue and new, digital machines on different levels of
    interaction: from flippers as old mechanical toys in Grassi’s work connected with the problem of financing art,
    to the video-game in the work of Saša Sedlaček, which is designed as a digital, virtual surrounding, superior to all the other forms of real and virtual manifestations. All the exhibited works are interactive, regardless if they produce sounds, images or movement in real or virtual time and space.

    Curators of the exhibition: Sunčica Ostoić (Zagreb), Olga Majcen (Zagreb) and Sandra Sajovič (Ljubljana).

    The exhibition was supported by: the Croatian Ministry of Culture, City Office for Culture Zagreb; the City of Velika Gorica, and the Slovenian Ministry of Culture.
