Electromagnetic Situationism

Gordan Savičić, Bengt Sjölén

WED, 26 March 2019
Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture, Ljubljana

Gordan Savičić and Bengt Sjölén will talk about works developed together with the Critical Engineering Working Group. Both artists explore network situations in which the electromagnetic infrastructure has been used as a field of intervention. Making use of contemporary technologies such as software-defined radio, they examine the analysis and reconstruction of any leaked signal over the air, independent of whether it originated from an intentional transmission at an antenna or from an unintentional emanation from a conductor on a substrate. The electromagnetic space serves as research framework for developing investigations into the traces and shadows of our technological dependency.
