SONIC CELLUMONIALS

Baum & Leahy, Greg Orrom Swan, Sofie Birch / Danmark, Storbritannien / 2021 / 25 min
Oplev dig selv som Homomicrobis, en symbiose af menneske og mikrobe, når du begiver dig ud på en guidet rejse ind i din krops mangeartede dimensioner.

Mere end halvdelen af cellerne i din krop er mikrobielle, og næsten en tiendedel af generne stammer fra vira. For disse billioner af bakterier, arkæer, svampe og vira er din krop deres univers. Mød denne intime familie af fremmede slægtninge, og bliv opløst ind i de mange glatte membraner, signalnetværk og molekylære udveksling. ‘Sonic Cellumonials’ er en kollektiv audiovisuel oplevelse af omsluttende synthscapes og animationer, med et valgfrit ‘Cellulært ceremoni’-kit*, der inviterer dig til at udforske det helbredende og transformerende potentiale ved at rejse gennem din krops flerdimensionelle økosystemer. Det valgfri kit er inklusiv forsendelse og indeholder en lille, blød meditationsmaske og et ceremonielt instruktionsark, der skal bruges før og under oplevelsen.

Baum & Leahy (DK/UK)
Baum & Leahy is an award-winning international, creative duo working across interactive installation, art direction, scenography and experience design. Collaborating with experts across disciplines, from microbiologists to musicians, quantum computer scientists to architects, they open up, question and sensorialise scientific research into tactile, participatory experiences. Through researchled worldmaking and material storytelling, their work allows the beholder a proximity to alternative realities, melting between the feasible and fantastical. Sonic Cellumonials builds on their body of artistic research into the Microbiocene – the ancient and ongoing era of microbial life on Earth.

Greg Orrom Swan (UK)
Greg Orrom Swan is an artist, designer, and creative technologist, with a background in experience design. Fascinated by biology, geology, and chemistry, his work explores the links between things and the interconnectedness of complex systems—deconstructing looking at the constituent parts as a whole. He applies a molecular gaze, aiming to highlight how humans are not separate from the living world—but both similar and distinct. This poetic and conceptual space allows him to communicate the strange and lurid connections between the different assemblages of humans and nonhumans, highlighting our shared ancestry, minerality, and elementality.

Sofie Birch (DK)

She has performed at venues such as MONOM and Roskilde Festival and has a distinct interest in working with visual artists on creating interdisciplinary formats.
