Vienna windclock laboratories

moss experimentsmoss experiments

TIK in cooperation with Ms. Baltazar's Laboratories organized a few working labs on windclocks in summer of 2011. As the windclock development was longer on a hold, the building of actual devices was picked up in summer 2011 to boost the output of windclocks. COL-ME went to Vienna several times to work together with the balt-labs on creating more clocks and prototypes.

We tried several approaches - a lot of versions didn't work or the technology turned out not to be too useful for us. So the feather clock as well as the moss clock were dropped in the end and not researched further.

Soundlab Graz @ESC

The soundlab in Graz was a short interference within the TIK project and served the development of COL-ME's soundworks so far. In cooperation with our TIK partner and the local organisation ESC a lab for experimenting with sounds was organized.
The aim was to see, whether we can build and how to build an exhibition device to represent soundworks.
After two days of experimenting with new materials like PLAAST, a material you can form in any shape when it is heated up to 60° we went thru several prototypes.
The original idea was to create 'soundshowers' - mechanical devices that would direct sound in space - basically like a laserbeam for sound. After several unsatisifying experiments with funny shaped things we turned to use PLAAST to see how sound and water would interfere. After creating several underwater soundboxes in all kind of shapes, we came to the conclusion that swimming speakers would give the best results in the question of directed sound in space.

Wind and time

Where: ASIL Gallery, Štefánikova 13, Bratislava, Slovakia
Opening: 5.9.2011, 19:00
Duration: until 11.9. 2011
Opening hours: Tuesday till Friday 15:00-19:00

The exhibition (part of the TIK project) deals with the (im)possibility to measure time by wind. Along the prototypes of windclocks, it will present works dealing with time and its measuring in general, or its relation to radio, broadcast and sound.

Kde: ASIL Gallery, Štefánikova 13, Bratislava, Slovakia
Otvorenie výstavy: 5.9.2011, 19:00
Trvanie výstavy: do 11.9. 2011
Otváracie hodiny:utorok až piatok 15:00-19:00

Výstava (súčasť projektu Time Inventors Kabinet) skúma (ne)možnosť merať čas pomocou vetra. Okrem prototypov veterných časostrojov predstaví práce, ktoré sa zaoberajú časom a jeho meraním vo všeobecnosti, alebo prepojením na rozhlas, vysielanie a zvuk.

Listen to our new permanent Windsoundstream. Add a Windsound by putting it on the padma multimedia platform or send it to callme AT col-me DOT info.

Record the wind or synthisize it and it becomes part of the TIK Windsound stream:

Budapest Wind Time Radio Scheduling Workshop

COL-ME in cooperation with the KitchenBudapest.

In Budapest aim of the workshop was to see, which boxes are still open and we slowly but surely have to start closing. It turned out, that we worked a lot on the windclocks, on a perfection of the javascript for visualizing the data and on creating audiotours. In the end even our radio transmitter tree, that we planned to build since February and several approaches have been (more or less) successfully made worked out.

We decided to have two workshops, to have time to finalize also a proper documentation on the clocks as well as - after months of testdrive - debug the hard- and software. This article covers both workshops - the first one in July 2011 and the second one in October 2011.

TIK-Radiodays II - a recap

The TIK Radiodays II took place from the 14th to the 18th of March 2011 in the local hacklab progressbar in Bratislava. We welcomed guests from our partnerorganisations KitchenBudapest and Yo-yo, Prague to participate.

To the list of content and participants

The second part within our Visegrad circle was concentrating on the content of our get-together, which was time. Our furthermost problem was how to make time audible, how we could talk about it and how to create something within the area of our workshop.

After long talks we took a walk through the city to look for certain areas to record, that we would connect with key words, we mentioned before. Hazy time, shortcuts, subjective time, eco-time zones just to name a few.

Rozhlasové dni TIK II - Piatok vecer

Tento týždeň bude v bratislavskom Progressbare patriť rádiu a netradičným formám vysielania. Od pondelka 14. marca do piatka 18. marca tu budú účastníci workshopu vytvárať rozhlasovú reláciu inšpirovanú alternatívnymi meraniami času, pomocou softvéru pre výmenu audio nahrávok. Workshop bude prebiehať pod vedením dvoch lektoriek - profesorky Vereny Kuni z Univerzity Johanna Wolfganga Goetheho vo Frankfurte mediálnej umelkyne a teoretičky Niny Czegledy z Budapešti. Výsledky workshopu budú predstavené v piatok počas verejnej prezentácie v priestoroch Progressbaru, ktorá sa začne o 18:00 a budete si ju môcť pozrieť aj cez stream. Počas nej odznejú v angličtine aj krátke prednášky od účastníkov workshopu.

Rozhlasové dni TIK sú už druhým pokračovaním workshopu. Ten predchádzajúci sa venoval technologickej stránke vysielania – okrem iného budovaniu mikro-vysielačov. Aj na druhú časť podujatia sme opäť prizvali tri partnerské organizácie - Kitchen Budapest (Maďarsko), Kronika Bytom (Poľsko) a Yo-yo Praha (Česká Republika). Ich zástupcovia sa zúčastnia aj na Rozhlasových dňoch TIK II.

Dni rádia TIK II

14. - 18. marec
Progressbar, Cukrová 14, Bratislava
denne 11:00 – 18:00

Cieľom druhej časti workshopu Rozhlasové dni TIK bude vytváranie rozhlasovej relácie, tentokrát so zameraním na obsah. Opäť sme prizvali tri partnerské organizácie - Kitchen Budapest,Kronika Bytom a Yo-yo Praha, aby vyslali na workshop svojich zástupcov. Workshop budú viesť hostia z Nemecka a Budapešti - profesorka Verena Kuni z Univerzity Johanna Wolfganga Goetheho vo Frankfurte a mediálna umelkyňa a teoretička Nina Czegledy.

TIK-Radiodays II

14-18th of March in progressbar, Bratislava, Cukrova 14;
daily from 11:00 – 18:00

SCHEDULE CHANGE!!! - Monday we start only at 14:00 at progressbar

The second workshop of the Visegrad funded event - the TIK Radio days, deals with creating a radio broadcast. Content and production are in the foreground of this workshop.
Supported by Visegrad, our three partner organisations are involved in the course of the whole development and are invited to participate in further TIK workshops throughout the year.
KIBU, Budapest, KRONIKA, Bytom and Yo-yo, Praha send for each workshop artists to participate and develop parts for the project.
