Silky airborne scores… constellations of musical notes made of cosmic dust, traces of movement in the air, trajectories of falling stars… a sonic journey… through multiverses… a 4 billions years old tour… cosmic resonance… How to Entangle the Universe in a Spider Web, spans two galleries within Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires with two immersive installations as the result of a decade’s worth of interdisciplinary artistic research. The universe is represented by a network of interconnections in which each element expands and transforms the others, reconfiguring their material and social boundaries. Suspended filaments of webs and swirling formations of dust foreground a floating journey through the ‘cosmic web’ where endless connections that would otherwise be overlooked are made tangible.
The Cosmic Dust Spider Web Orchestra, entangles the space in a rhythmic ensemble. A light beam makes cosmic dust visible in a dimly lit room. Through a live three-dimensional video recording, the floating dust particles are tracked and sonified. Their sounds, determined by their position and the speed at which they travel through space, are amplified and spatialized over a set of over 25 loudspeakers.
Quasi-Social Musical Instrument IC 342 built by 7000 Parawixia bistriata – six months, features the largest three-dimensional spider web ever exhibited. Shiny filaments, galactic clouds and clusters appear as extended ripples of a micro- and macrocosmos of cooperation while interconnected threads woven by thousands of quasi-social spiders from the Argentinian Parawixia bistriata species appear through the air. These drawings in the air, made by an estimated 40 million threads, reveal the trajectory of cosmic dust particles.
