1.The Weight of OrchestraIdea: every one has his/her unique voice. Research has demonstrated that there is a correlation between a person's sound and weight or body density. I therefore use weight to make sound. I tried to produce device that can make sound when a person plays it.
2.The  seesaw of  memory Idea:When our parents or lover is gone, how can we remember them , just in the  photo or in video?Because everyone have the experience play the seesaw with our parents or friend when we are children. So I use the seesaw to make a work. I hope I can by way of weight to feel them when them is gone.

 

Aleksandra Bolcek

26 years old artist of media art born in Poland. Although my artistic education touches many fields of fine arts, such as drawing, painting, sculpture, graphic design, animation etc, I found myself best in interactive installations in wide spaces and stage design. In my artistic activities I’m trying to design my works in purpose to active interaction with the audience, and in the same time to smuggling some content. Mostly inspired by biological structures and microscopic creatures because the mother nature is a greatest artist for me!:) In the future I plan to focus all of my attention to the theatre/dance scene design, with the use of interactive media and 3D mapping.

Hannah Rosamonde Perner-Wilson

Born in 1983 and raised in Brighton/ England, I moved to Austria with my family at the age of ten. After completing High School in Salzburg I moved to America for a year where I travelled, worked and took some college courses. The following year I attended a foundation year in art and design studies at Reading College of Art and Design in England.

Since 2003 I have been studying Industrial Design at the Art University in Linz and have since found myself considering the combination of new media technologies with formal product language to communicate information. I'm interest in how traditional industrial manufacturing elements, which through their production numbers are widely spread and commonly known, can be applied to communicate non-commercial information.

Since 2004 I have been taking courses at the newly founded department of Interface Culture where Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau, in cooperation with the Ars Electronica Futurelab and various invited lecturers, are teaching the use of and critical approach towards new media within a very wide spectrum of possibility.

When realizing projects I find myself drawn towards the ways in which objects, whether of material nature or data, convey their content. This close relationship between message and medium always plays an important role in my work and ideas around the environment in which objects are approached occupy my time.
