Spatial Topologies

By Astrid Kaemmerling on Apr 3, 2014

Our show at The Majestic Galleries Spatial Topologies, was a collaborative exhibition bringing together four multi-disciplinary artists. Brian Harnetty, a sound artist from Ohio, Astrid Kaemmerling, a painter and installation artist from North Rhine Westfalia, Germany, Josh Ottum, a musician from California, and Jena Seiler, a video artist from New Mexico.

Viewers were invited to immerse themselves in our production and exploration of place. The experiments manifested themselves in visual depictions of urban intersections, aural documentation of the area, and physical transformations of the gallery space itself.

Cleaning, removing, destroying, and then building back up are actions utilized to reference the domestic cycle. By performing these actions in a studio setting as opposed to a home setting, their practical value becomes nonexistent. Within this specific piece, a stain that has been washed off and painted over surfaces again and then...

Rhythm & Rehab

I’m kick-starting a new research project wherein the outcome is 1.) helping people, 2.) involves connecting music output, to physical well-being, and 3.) utilizes mobile technologies. It just so happens to be a multidisciplinary, collaborative project, involving Ohio’s own School of Physical Therapy, School of Music, and The Aesthetic Technologies Lab. It’s just starting… should be fun.    As still in Anne bike from Petra Williams on Vimeo.
