Distant Skies:Pressure Waves
Kathy Hinde’s installations in the exhibition Distant Skies:Pressure Waves are based on thematic interweavings of nature and technology. Their use of fiction, fantasy and poetry opens up the Utopian potential of the imaginary: the future becomes an open space of possibilities. Phase Transition, a sculptural sound installation, blends the noise of dripping water from melting ice cubes with metallic sounds to create pulsating, floating tones. Developed for esc medien kunst labor, the installation In Flight is made up of cyborg-like origami birds. Suspended from the ceiling, they appear to be gliding off towards distant worlds. In Kathy Hinde and Daniel Skoglund’s sound installation Palimpsest, spider-like robots generate sounds and noises that condense into a composition: this can also be heard as a concert performance as part of the ORF musikprotokoll.
