The Electrogram video focuses on those wondrous lines which hover in our eyes for some moments after seeing an electronically produced streak of lightning in the works of Costis. In the course of the construction of his works, these lines guide him in the depiction of electric fields through his electric drawing or in his combining of conductible and non-conductible materials, so that the spark of the electric discharge, the lightning, may reveal itself, take shape, and even, with luck, attain its greatest freedom on the graphic surface. Perpetually changing patterns, random yet striking, impress upon our memory a map, a significant alphabet of non-material points, which the lightning reveals. The music travels along with the imagery, but it does not react to it in any immediate, obvious ways nor does it try to emulate its manner of operation. It is a white continuum – white as in ‘white page’ as well as in ‘white noise’ – a drone, out of which diverse, barely felt aural events may appear like far away gleams, distant echoes of the visual material.
E V E N T S
Open C.A.S.E. 303 – Center for Art, Science & Education is glad to present his 1st Art, Science & Education (A.S.E.) Project, Open Line, inspired by Costis’ (Triantafyllou) homonym exhibition.
A.S.E. Projects, Open C.A.S.E.303’s main activity, raise questions about nature, life, man and his societies and search for answers through the intercourse and interaction of two human activities that seem to be discordant, however in fact they are allied: The Art and The Sciences. Each time and with the occasion of a question or a phenomenon scientists and artists meet, discuss, interact and share their thoughts and point of view with the public.
In that context, Open Line sees Costis “lightnings” as a departure point to explore the least known aspects and effects of this natural phenomenon on life, art, science, technology and philosophy.
Open Line introduces Costis’ homonym art exhibition, experimental music concerts and round table discussions between scientists/researchers and artists.
