The film In Our Hands is based on research into hand gestures that were developed to influence, heal, predict – or ward off – the future. The final choreography includes a range of gestures from diverse sources – from spiritual to political to military – that have become removed from their original context. The film consists of a with motion capture produced animation of two virtual transparent hands. The films is projected on two sides of a free standing screen, from one perspective the hands are directing you as a viewer. At the other side of the screen, chronologically playing, the hands feel more like an extension of the body of the viewer. In Our Hands relates to current debates around Artificial Intelligence, it's often anthropomorphic imagination and the concept of singularity with a form of super intelligence that we will or won't keep in control.
The accompanying sound piece is a composition made of 18 computer generated binaural tones or brainwaves. Brainwaves are electrical activity patterns caused by the neurons of the brain communicating with each other. Brainwave synchronization, aims to cause brainwave frequencies to fall into step with a periodic stimulus having a frequency corresponding to the intended brain-state. The effect of binaural tones was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove and earned greater public awareness in the late 20th century based on claims coming from the alternative medicine community that binaural beats could help induce relaxation, meditation, creativity and other desirable mental states.
Film: 9:20 min.
Sound piece: 17:40 min.

BRDG is a publically funded organisation that offers an opportunity for contemporary artists to interact with the architecture of the railway passage in the city centre of Antwerp. As a platform for research, exploration and articulation of various aspects of public space, BRDG aims to encourage the public to re-think, re-live and re-imagine the role of the passage/bridge. Any proposed or invited project must have the emphasis on how the spectators may participate in the project and how the outcome inspires them to consider their relationship with the city.
Lokaal 01 is a centre for contemporary art located in a former garage building close to the Central Station of Antwerp and BRDG passage. It facilitates experimental presentations of contemporary artists and supports research and personal development of (young) artists through work periods, site specific projects and summer schools.
In general, the noun synthesis (from the ancient Greek σύνθεσις, σύν "with" and θέσις "placing") refers to a combination of two or more entities that together form something new; alternately, it refers to the creating of something by artificial means. The corresponding verb, to synthesize (or synthesise), means to make or form a synthesis.
The starting point will be audio recordings and pictures of the exhibition space. Through the use of audio editing software, sounds can be translated into images and vice versa. This offers us the opportunity to start a potentially endless cycle of “remixes”.
This in an attempt to explore the grey area between the audial and visual properties of the exhibition space.
Workperiod: 6/10 - 2/11/2015 - Opening: 30/10 19:00h. - 23:00h.

"We have both converted an image (a solar flare and the back of the moon) into sound, and forwarded it to each other with a walkie-talkie, and made an image of that image then again forwarded as noise, which once again was converted to an image and so it goes on and on. it seems almost like a conversation between the moon and the sun."
