OPERA OF THINGS
From 7 to 7:20 pm — Power adapters and remote controllers get a voice this Friday night at TENT!
The Velicon is an electro-acoustic instrument consisting of a metal board with magnetic figures. Artist Jasna Veličković leads a coil over the magnets, triggering the magnetic fields to produce their ‘voice’.
Veličković uses a similar procedure to capture the ‘voices’of power adapters or remote controllers. The title of this work alludes to the concept of the ‘Internet of Things’, which involves extending internet connectivity begyond standard devices into any range of common objects, such as a lamp or thermostat.
