Art Booking

June 18th, 2006

Art booking is one evening charity event that will be held within the O3ONE Soundbridging program on Sunday, June 18th, at 21h. The project is a synthesis of poetry, video and audio installation, with the idea of connecting words, symbols, sounds, and visitors.

The project aims to enroll in the global cultural map of the arts that emerged in the medium with a basic expression of poetic language, without translating it into different languages of the world, but transposing it to universal artistic media, which do not require the method of classical transcription. The project author: Jasmina Holbus

“Audio and video installation inspired by the poetic potency of the poetry collection ‘Puzzle’, builds a three-dimensional book with spatial connectivity. The narratives of the poetry book have been translated into an abstract form of architectural setting by juxtaposition: Picture – WORD; Sound – TEXT; Observer – PARTICIPANT. The intention is for the poetically visible Word to return to the initial movement of thoughts in reality.

Spatial interconnection of video and sound installation thematically we create a puzzle, wrapped with sounds and letters, as well as from the characters of the observer. The narration of space is realized by moving the observer through space as well as in the abstract geometry of the space itself. An observer passes through the same participant, Poet’s “I”.

The synchronism of the real and the imaginary hides in the spiral time of the present moment.”
