Art Wednesday: Timothy Maxymenko Artist-talk
September 18, a media artist Timothy Maxymenko will hold his Art Wednesday. He will tell more about his projects and new ideas, as well as such artistic practices as psychogeography and sound art.
This is what Timothy comments on his work:
Within my artistic practice the city often becomes a material for research and interaction with it. I create works that become sort of an adapter between the viewer and the city. This creates the opportunity for a dialogue and other perception of the city as an organism. I find the things which are unnoticed and regular at first glance, bring them to the forefront, giving the opportunity to feel the city from a different perspective: such as invisible sounds of the switchboard or ventilation box, which we do not notice but they are constantly moaning as if they tried to something say. One of my most recent projects is called Howls, it is an audio performance where the viewer is able to listen and interact with the noise that erupted from the circuit board. Since I work in urban studies I have studied many different cities and noticed that each city sounds different, the rhythms of movement and texture of the surfaces diverse.
