About

VERNISSAGE
22nd January - 18:00h - 21:00h

EXHIBITION
23rd - 31st January / Wed - Sat 13:00 - 18:00h

Part of the Vorspiel / Transmediale & CTM Festival 2020

Canadian artist duo Ian Jehle & Edwina Chen create a three dimensional mathematical model of a Faure's Requiem for polyphonic overtone choir. The model, which can be considered both sculpture and architecture, is based on the artists‘ theory of mathematical sense mapping which uses mathematical models to correlate various artistic disciplines including architecture, music, and colour theory.

LECTURE PERFORMANCE
29th January 19:00h

Sight. Sound. Touch. Taste. Smell. The 5 senses are widely understood as the mechanisms through which we perceive the world. For millennia artists scientists and philosophers have thought about these different forms of perception and how they relate to one another. Ian Jehle and Edwina Chang will discuss their theory of sense mapping, which considers the mathematical systems that lie behind perception and considers ways in which the mathematics of the five senses allow for various forms of translation between sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. In keeping with the theme, the lecture will include a performance of portions Faure’s Requiem which was the inspiration for the exhibition.
