Site Specific Sound Installation
von Mario de Vega
Opening Tuesday, 08.12. 2015, 7 pm
9.-20.December open daily 2-7pm
Time and again Mario de Vega’s work venture to the boundaries of human perception. Psychoacoustic phenomena, infrasound, high-voltage systems and electromagnetic oscillation fields are components of his practice, questions of individual perception mechanisms dealt with just as much as global political and social developments. DOLMEN addresses the social effects of modern telecommunications technologies and visually confronts the observer with an integrated sensor system that translates radio waves directly dependent on the activity of the local mobile phone network and the visitor. The exhibition space becomes the resonant space of an omnipresent yet invisible technology whose social, political and health effects are as yet unclear. The »Usuarios (Users)« photo series is presented along with DOLMEN, which de Vega has been developing together with Víctor Mazón Gardoqui since 2003.
On Sunday December 20th there will be an artist talk in the exhibition (8 pm).
