Interface

The first project by Zweiart, „Interface“, was presented in 2006 in the historical Roman gallery Al Ferro di Cavallo.
The installation consists of a number of huge paper masks built by Marina Buening hanging from the ceiling. On these masks two different sets of images realised by Maria Korporal are projected in sequences: one of them comes from a video projector, the other one from a slide projector. They show images of nets – elaborated by means of computer animation techniques – moving continuously, while playing with the organic forms of the masks. The choice for a net did not come by chance; in fact a net is a perfect representation of the concept “interface”, an entanglement of connections. All is accompanied by suggestive sounds playing in the background.
The faces always show different expressions and soon the person sitting in front of them starts to ask her/himself: “Who is really looking at whom?”

Is She Asleep?

Is She Asleep? is a celebration of madness – the kind of holy trance-like madness which only few people are able to reach. The two protagonists loose themselves in the darkness of a tunnel, but then seem to experience an inner light. A succession of images and sounds leaves the spectator wondering about what they see and hear, but after a while maybe he or she will be able to participate.

The installation consists of a video made by Maria Korporal, projected against a wall, and a cylindrical net structure created by Marina Buening, which encloses the projection ray, as if it was a tunnel with openings. It looks like an airy container, able to hold together images and sounds, and to interact with them in a whole organism.
