BERG is now a Soundscape for iPhone and iPad


"Berg is a site specific sound art project by the artist Valentina Ferrandes and a GPS-triggered soundscape for iPhone designed for Teufelsberg in Berlin. The APP(lication) contains an archive of audio tracks and soundscapes. As the user moves through Grunewald forest, the iPhone's GPS activates a series of overlapping tracks, radio broadcasts, spoken word and other auditive materials, inspired by Cold War Espionage, Short Wave Frequencies and Classic Cinema. Through the localization of an audio path, the artist plunges the user into an evocative and estranging experience of the urban space."


The app is free and it can be downloaded clicking on the icons below

ACHT STUNDEN sind kein Tag

- DE
Release of the iOS App for Iphone.

Acht Stunden is a site specific sound art project by the artist Valentina Ferrandes and a GPS-driven sound map for iPhone designed for the town of Wuppertal, Germany. The APP(lication) contains an archive of various open-source audio samples. As the user moves through Wuppertal and depending on its current location, the iPhone's GPS activates a series of overlapping field recordings, radio broadcasts, spoken word and other auditive materials, loosely related to the local environment's history.

Through the localization of an audio path, the artist plunges the user into an evocative and estranging experience of the urban space.

Acht Stunden has been developed in collaboration with the Media Designer Rainer Kohlberger and the programmer Mark Haack of Werk55, both based in Berlin.

Supported by Wuppertal Kulturfonds. TO DOWNLOAD THE APPLICATION FROM iTUNES click HERE

Presentation of Acht Studen, a Soundscape for Wuppertal.

To listen to Acht Studen click HERE

Am 8.+ 9.9.2012

wird in der Hebebühne eine Stadtkarte von Wuppertal die Arbeiten der Videokünstlerinnen Valentina Ferrandes (Italien/London), Henrietta Hall(UK)und der Performancekünstlerin Nusara Mai-ngarm(BKK/London/Wuppertal) kennzeichnen. Die drei ehemaligen Studenten der Chelsea Kunstakademie treffen sich zum dritten Mal in Wuppertal um ihre Videokunst, Performance und audio-orts-spezifischen Werke zu präsentieren. Nach ihrer gemeinsamen Arbeit im Bunker Döppersberg 2011 und dem FU-Festival in der Galerie Olga 2009, haben sich die drei Künstlerinnen entschieden, erneut ihre Spuren in Wuppertal zu hinerlassen. Diesmal werden sie ihre Arbeiten nicht importieren, sondern vor Ort in Wuppertal entstehen lassen. In Steps/Schritte erforschen die drei Künstlerinnen "double takes" als grundlegendes Element ihrer Arbeit und verbinden es mit historischen und kulturellen Aspekten der Stadt Wuppertal, um so den Blick des Betrachters durch erneutes hinsehen ("double take") auf zunächst mondän erscheinendes herauszufordern. Dieses Projekt zielt darauf ab standortspezifische Arbeiten zu entwickeln.

14 - 16 June 2012

SHEFFIELD FRINGE Curated by Minou Norouzi- GB S1 Artspace and THE VOID CINEMA at Sheffield Allam University Sheffield UK Filmmaking at the intersection of art and documentary practice is fertile ground on which to examine direct critical engagements with philosophy and theory. No longer relegated to the margins of experimental film as genre, these debates have entered the 'mainstream.' Sheffield Fringe is both a platform to explore the critical possibilities of film as well as an attempt to expand on current debate.Website

“L’indagine della videoarte del/ e sul mondo femminile”
Villa Pomini Via Don Luigi Testori 14 Castellanza, Varese - IT
H 16 – 19
Screening di videoarte a cura di VISUALCONTAINER
Con il Patrocinio della Città di Castellanza
In concomitanza con le attuali celebrazioni , VisualContainer intende a sua volta dare i volti, le voci e le situazioni che nell’ottica dell’arte contemporanea caratterizzano la donna del Terzo Millennio. Dall’archivio di VisualContainer, una serie di video realizzati da donne artiste o comunque aventi per protagonista il mondo femminile spesso escluso dalla società o recluso ai margini dell’arte: qui la videocamera diviene veramente “femmina” e si fa scelta privilegiata per indagare la donna nella sua veste esteriore e nel suo contenuto più intimo, in solitudine o nei rapporti sempre problematici con la contraparte maschile e la società. I lavori degli artisti in mostra trasportano sullo schermo di proiezione il vasto palcoscenico dell’umanità al femminile che ci circonda, indagando in maniera inusuale ma convinta e convincente le numerose tematiche che la riguardano e coinvolgono tutti nella ricerca di un equilibrio biologico e sociale sempre al di là delle visioni proposte. Artisti in Mostra: Alessandra Arnò, Mauro Romito, Elena Arzuffi, Barbara Brugola, Maria Korporal, Valentina Ferrandes, Albert Merino, Rita Casdia, Mauro Folci, Slawomir Milewski, Anita Calà Testarossa, Alessia Zuccarello, Natalia Saurin Visualcontainer Italian Videoart Platform.
