Photos and details of the room that I set up for Muted Distortions ‘there is no outside’ exhibition ( http://blackmaskco.com/muted_distortions/ ) that took place in Athens Greece at TAF ( http://theartfoundation.metamatic.gr/ ) from 06 of December 2012 until 13 of January 2013, using photo manipulation, lights and handmade electronic devise that produce noise and changing its pitch through light or colours. The exhibition Muted distortions aims to bring together a group of artists, architects, designers and programmers into an exploration on the conceptual figure of noise*. The exhibition becomes a laboratory set up where rather than just a collection of fixed products, works function as individual researches in terms of ongoing processes. Tied together by a common point of departure (the noise), works diffuse into a diverse set of disciplines (fine arts, illustration, motion design, etc.). In the context of the Post-Fordist utopia where the industrial infrastructures are becoming immaterial clouds of information, life tends to be completely invested by acts of production and reproduction. While for the past generations leisure time meant disappearing from the mass production chain, the modern man produces new immaterial products (pages, groups, etc.) for corporations like Facebook, reproduces and distributes multinational corporations products (movies, music, etc.) through private massive channels of information like Google. Thus social life itself becomes all the more a productive machine. To the extent to which living and producing tends to be indistinguishable, it seems that there is no longer any “outside”. Trapped in this loophole of our postmodern present, we tune on its less audible refractions, to noise*. Muted distortions represent the process of disruption as a structuring element of the everyday. The interference in the flow of information channels. It is the noise, but it is also a message, a bit of information producing the rupture of information. * Noise is any information contained to a message that was not intended by the sender. Read Less
