“Dislocation echoes emancipation” – Ernesto Laclau


Nazare Soares, Øystein Kjørstad Fjeldbo &  Amalia Fonfara

( 2,2 ) 0 is a cinematic space where the visual external stimulus is removed. An invitation to navigate through a kinematic montage from a spatial psychoacoustic experience, where the imagination seeks to alter and proliferate, reverberating through the deep cavities of the psyche. The inner space is mapped conceiving another kind of system that isn’t represented spatially but is instead constructed from patterns of single events remapped from intensities, interferences and temporal sensitivity, delays and elastics rhythms. 8 chambers exist simultaneously, each one containing different facets of the acoustic information: it carry sonic characteristics, latency, loudness and modulations of rate and direction. In this way one is orientated within a journey through the architecture of the inner space and towards expanding outer qualities of the imagination. An inner journey towards a spatiality of ambience, atmosphere and spatial self; the heart may pre-echo endless openings, without the eye, space is navigated by being remembered or imagined. Taking the structure of a (2,2) mode shamanic drum as a reference,  the artwork explores the possibility for  re-combinations and simultaneities of the real-and-imagined. The hybrid spaces present the use of technology and its relation to knowledge, through systems and languages found in techno-animism, cinema and hauntology practices.  

The work was premiered at Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder in Trondheim, Norway. from 21st till  28th of may 2017. ( 2,2 ) 0 Ahas been invited to take part at the Microbites of Innovation organised as part of the ACM Creativity and Cognition 2017, taking place on 27 June – 2 July 2017 at the Artscience Museum in Singapore. ( 2,2 ) 0,  was first presented under working title Timeless Machine at Lighting Shorts. Futurescapes. A symposium in New Media, Technology, and the Humanities as part of Metamorf Art & Technology Biennale in Trondheim. Norway, March 2016. The dream machine’s initial idea was conceptually constructed from an inspiration based on principal behaviours of atoms and particles in quantum physics.

“How electrons experience the world: that is, dis/orienting experience of the dis/jointed of time and space, entanglements of here and there, now and then, that is, a ghostly sense of dis/continuity, a quantum dis/continuity, which is neither fully discontinues with continuity or even fully continuous with discontinuity, and in any case, surely not one with itself. There is not overarching sense of temporality, of continuity, in place”

(Karen Barad, 2010)
