Infinity Two: Transmission Tissue (2014)
audio, biosensors, video
The flag-prayer is a core ritual in the traditional roman catholic guild life of the Noord-Brabant province, and has been known to follow a more or less fixed structure since the Middle Ages. The banner choreographies result in firm flutters of fabric, a sound which renews itself in cyclical movements. Hypothetically this sound is fuctioning as a time capsule, as it should technically sound very similar to the sounds produced during these rituals in 1450. Transmission Tissue investigates these flag sounds and dives below the skin of the flagprayer. This project has been realized in collaboration with St. Barbaragilde Veghel and with the kind support of Stimuleringsfonds.
