Digital Dish: Paloma Kop
Paloma Kop: Magnetic Field Recordings
Wednesday, 24 November 2021 | 17:00 CET (11:00 EST)
@ online stream
The Digital Dish will offer a view behind the scenes of Paloma Kop’s multimedia art practice, focused on the process used to create Magnetic Field Recordings (2021) and her ongoing series, Electromagnetic Earth. Today, electricity and magnetism are mainly considered in the context of human-made technologies, but nature, the earth and the cosmos are alive with all forms of radiation and electrical activity. The artist investigates the blurry boundaries between nature and machines as well as how recent technology provides new ways to observe and explore the environment.
The presentation will be followed by a discussion with Ida Hiršenfelder.
Paloma Kop is a video and sound artist using feedback, electronic hardware and hybrid media processes to produce compositions, installations and performances. She deconstructs the boundaries between material space and electronic space and is interested in the universalities between natural phenomena, computing and chaos. She holds an MFA in Electronic Arts from Alfred University and has performed at Ibrida*Pluri Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Ambient Church and others.
Ida Hiršenfelder (beepblip) is a Ljubljana-based sound artist and archivist. She performs under an onomatopoeic alias beepblip.
