HOLON Greifswalderstr 29 10405 Berlin

On the occasion of Vorspiel 2023, HOLON presents 'LOOM' by ATELIER-E; an installation in which phosphorescent threads store information as light and transform a loom into a never-ending weaving machine of algorithmic patterns and sounds.

Originally commissioned for the TextilWerk Bocholt, the work will now be re-contextualised for the exhibition space at Greifswalder Str 29, using its 8-channel sound system and light installation.

LOOM pays homage to the punch card system invented by Joseph Marie Jacquard, which stored and replaced human craftsmanship and labor into a machine readable data format: one of the first signs of data driven aesthetics and authorship. The technology’s disruptive consequences have become the technological leitmotif of our accelerated world. The underlying principle of pattern generation, encoding and decoding, by means of binary punch cards, manifests itself to this day in the digital age. Our relationship to industry and its machinery are continuously renegotiated, so as the LOOM enters new contexts through time, a new matrix of meanings are inscribed upon it.

ATELIER-E is an interdisciplinary laboratory for new media founded by visual artist Daniel Dalfovo and sound artist Christian Losert. Both work and teach at the intersection of art, technology and science. In their artistic practice they create multimedia spaces, audio-visual narratives and collaborate with international artists and research institutions.

HOLON is a format initiated by MONOMANGO.
