Mohammad Namazi: Entropische Iteration
On Thu / Fri / Sat, 27 / 28 / 29 October
each day from 14:00h to 18:00h
Public talk and discussion on Saturday, 29 October at 19:00h
Mohammad Namazi presents 'Entropische Iteration' (Entropic Iteration) as a reflection on his residency experience as part of the Freiraum-Stipendium – the index collective residency programme. The artist installs a three-days open laboratory at Corner College, which will end in a public talk and discussion. Namazi shows new work made during his residency in Zurich that utilises the Internet, installation and video formats. In his talk he presents his new experiments and talks about his research and practice in general.
Locating the numerous water fountains that are a feature specific to the urban experience of Zurich, Namazi re-imagines these sites as physical manifestos that are actualised as temporary non-hierarchical social platforms. A series of web pages have been created to map out a selection of these encounters. Through these online networks, linkages and locations - sound recordings, image editing and HTML programming are used to spatialize and demonstrate the physical and off-line reality on the virtual and online environment.
