Working at the interface of art and science for over a decade, Amsterdam-based Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand develop “Force Field”, an installation-in-progress, together with computational artist Paul Prudence, acoustic physicist Alexander Miltsen, and the Hydrodynamics Laboratory of the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris. Developed during a two-week residency prior to CTM 2016, the work-in-progress will be on show as an installation during the festival.
Force Field uses sonolevitation to acoustically levitate a water droplet that resonates and transforms from a spheroid into different oscillating shapes as the sonic pressure increases.
Capturing the 3- dimensionality of sound and the elusive physicality of water, the droplet’s vibrations are rendered into sound and computational images that are presented as a live hemispherical projection and multi-channel sound environment.
Exploring normally inaccessible depths of both inner and outer space, Force Field extends the tradition of avant-garde research on phenomenological art through tightly-interwoven artistic and scientific practices.
Credits :“Force Field” at CTM 2016 was co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, and the Creative Industries Fund NL (Stimuleringsfonds).

The artist residency took place 15 January – 3 February 2016.
It opened with an artist talk / demonstration as part of the CTM/transmediale 2016 vorspiel opening event at ACUD Macht Neu on 15 January 2016.
