Transsystemic Signals 2.0 (Ciprian Făcăeru, Andrei Raicu)
July 7 – 28
Artist talk + Opening installation: July 7, 19:00-22:00
WASP Working Art Space and Production
Event organized within EXPLORING PLUREALITIES Symposium #1
Transsystemic Signals 2.0 explores the innovative-creative potential of the tools and methods offered by the new media in order to symbolically reconnect the different layers and fragments of reality distributed organically in the physical, virtual and imaginary space.
The interdisciplinary project aims at an iterative creative process that continues the experiment developed in the first stage 1.0 that digitally archived and explored the relationship between urban built space and spontaneous vegetation as an exponent of natural fauna.
In laboratory #1 – New technologies and young audiences, within the Exploring Plurealities project, the interactive audio-visual installation Transsystemic Signals 2.0 was developed, which introduces new variables in the transsystemic universe and explores the body presence in terms of performing arts in the context of new interactive technologies, virtual and mixed reality.
Idea, concept, authors: Ciprian Făcăeru, Andrei Raicu
Co-authors and performers: Vlad Benescu, Ștefan Bunicelu, Dan Făcăeru, Georgiana Ghergu
EXPLORING PLUREALITIES #1 Symposium brings together artists with inclusive contemporary visions at an artistic, political and socio-cultural level, multidisciplinary creators and current topics at a local and European level. Developing the ideal framework for an increased exposure and visibility and aiming at audience development through new formats and exhibition spaces for contemporary artistic creations, 4Culture aims to connect the participants involved in the project and activate new audiences.
During the symposium, a round table will be organized with the participating artists, partners and media representatives, two ‘artist talk’ meetings that will introduce the public to the practices addressed by the guest artists: the relationship between word, memory and body – recurring themes in the creation of the artist Mette Edvardsen (Time has fallen asleep in the afternoon sunshine) and the relationship between the performing arts and new media technologies, with Ciprian Făcăeru and Andrei Raicu, the coordinators of laboratory #1 – New technologies and young audiences, respectively of the Transsystemic Signals 2.0 installation.
The symposium will host the production „Time has fallen asleep in the afternoon sunshine” by Mette Edvardsen, in a new version that includes participants from Romania, as well as the installation Transsystemic Signals 2.0 resulting from laboratory# 1 – New technologies and young audiences, coordinators Ciprian Făcăeru (AR researcher) and Andrei Raicu (sound artist).

About EXPLORING PLUREALITIES:
By implementing transdisciplinary activities in the field of contemporary performing and visual arts, the EXPLORING PLUREALITIES project aims to develop the audience and support contemporary art creators in Romania, in partnership with Norwegian artist Mette Edvardsen and in cooperation with Romanian and international artists and professionals. Creating a favorable framework for the development of art, through opportunities for professional evolution – job shadowing and mentoring, the project implemented by the 4Culture Association proposes a progressive approach, based on analysis and prospecting of innovative directions, by identifying and assuming hybrid artistic formats.
4Culture projects have a European dimension, the potential to multiply the results and a large public exposure. Through the PERSPECTIVES IN MOTION activity within the EXPLORING PLUREALITIES project, we propose two symposia and a digital platform, which will enable the resources of 4Culture and its partners and will ensure a dissemination of productions made for new audiences for contemporary performing arts – dance, performance, and visual arts (installations, new media projects and digital art).
