Unleashing Screensaver: May 27th

Posted on: May 27th, 2018 by Mary Meixner No Comments

The studio of performance at FAVU VUT (Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Technology, Brno) is focused on the essence of the creative act. It penetrates all forms of contemporary art expression. Actual performance is manifested through any media. From individual acts of self awareness, through body and new technologies, to social interactions and environmental activism. Free art of action encompasses a wide spectrum of live work with information and deals with the art of interaction, medialization, and presentation. With the whole potential of personality, using multimedia technologies and digital visualization, it works with imagination. The head of the studio of performance is Tomáš Ruller, and the outputs for Unleashing Screensaver have been prepared under pedagogical guidance of studio assistant professor Jennifer Helia De Felice and PhD student Barbora Trnková.

Memories on my aesthetic upbringing

Presented works play with the topic of the Unleashing project – with aesthetic education. We have focused on key, however hidden moments in our own aesthetic education, and decided to reflect them as the memory, and as special type of code. We worked out the processes and results of those moments when personal artistic motivation manifested itself in more general aesthetic preconditions of our surroundings. At the same time, we have evaluated the results of these places for our present day.

Our screensaver has two parts. The first part is comprised of videos by Jakub Bruch: Random art memories, Tomáš Lorenc: Dance, Markéta Olšarová: That’s how it was, that’s how it will be, Jana Rémanová: Family lunch in the Garden.

In the second part, Eva Slížová makes live comments and an alternative interpretation of the works in an accompanying text line at the bottom of your screen.
