Over the past years, there has been an enormous development in the field of live-presented audio-visual performance art. Owing to digital techniques, image and sound are connected in a way that was unthinkable before. Frozen is headed in the opposite direction. Frozen pulls the plug and presents audio art, prints, and sculptures as independent, but interconnected works of art.
Frozen presents images and sculptural objects made using sound as an input. These artworks use audio analysis and custom software processes to extract meaningful data from the sound data, creating a mapping between audio and visual and even tactile media. Along with digital prints, Frozen also features four "sound sculptures" created using digital fabrication technology, allowing for a direct translation of a digital model into physical, “frozen” form.
Frozen arose in collaboration with the Norwegian artist and curator Marius Watz, who specializes in using generative systems for creative expression. Besides Watz's own contribution, 'audio sculptures' are on display by Andreas Nicolas Fischer (DE) & Benjamin Maus (DE), Leander Herzog (CH), and Daniel Widrig & Shajay Booshan (UK). The sculpture of Watz is based on Olsorainmanifesto by musician Alexander Rishaug; the other three sculptures are all based on Reflection by Freiband / Frans de Waard. The printed stills are by Marius Watz and Leander Herzog.
Frozen has previously been exhibited during the 5 Days Off festival 2008 in Amsterdam.
