, two longstanding friends and allies of CTM, together with musician Errorsmith
perform a live audio-visual composition on and with their large scale installation "Surface Refinement".
The installation "Surface Refinement" is project in progress and a result of a long time research and development. It has first been shown at CTM.09. For CTM.10 the installation has been expanded, adapted and altered. It can be seen as an architectural study: modular, geometric styrofoam and synthetic polystyrole mirror elements are arranged on the walls and ceiling of the WMF to create a large-scale, adaptive spatial structure. Projections precisely map the forms and silhouettes and create an interaction between the geometric bodies, light and sound.
At WMF, "Surface Refinement" elegantly adapts to and transforms the existing architecture where it covers parts of the main hall's walls and ceiling. Video projectors are used to animate the structure by precisely tracing individual elements with light. It describes a path towards form and delivers a massive, sensual re-definition of space. Styrofoam and polystyrole are industrial materials; completely synthetic products. Both stands for functionality, simplicity and minimalism, exactly the qualities that the installation references in contemporary architecture and interior design.
