AMALGAMATED HABITATION : NAIROBI/BERLIN is a collaborative work by Kamaru Joseph, Ross Alexander and Lupus Siegert

 

The work comprised a live performance presenting recordings and sounds collected and made by the two artists Joseph and Alexander in their respective home cities of Nairobi and Berlin and an online virtual exhibit of mixed-media works.

 

Within AMALGAMATED HABITATION : NAIROBI/BERLIN KMRU and Ross Alexander utilised their respective collections of sound-walk field recordings made in Berlin and Nairobi to create interpretive and abstract sound maps of the two cities, these recordings were combined with extracted 3D mapping data and p-o-v video recordings of areas within the two metropolitan centres to create an immersive multi-media work which presented an impressionistic representation of similarity and contrast between the two places and created a type of 'amalgamated' imagined city-scape using sonic and visual elements gathered from the recordings and videos. 

 

In creating this hybrid representation the two questioned and reflect the markers and boundaries which are used to define the typical aspects of habitational urban environments in different cities such as in Nairobi or Berlin and to abstract the the patterns of psycho-geography which play a role in the relation we have to these habitats. Within this, as is a theme within the work of both artists, a re-contextualisation of the represented spaces allowed for escape into a third, imagined place which exists somewhere outside of any real-world restrictions, a place where typical markers and boundaries are deconstructed and reformed to offer an alternate view of the metropolitan space.

TO THE EVENING STAR

To The Evening Star was an eight part conceptual radio series airing live each Sunday at sunset over the space of eight weeks during the first Berlin lockdown of 2020 between March 15th and April 3rd.

The broadcasts were made using remote transmission software and broadcast via Cashmere Radio. Accompanying each transmission were visuals from the Japanese video artist Rambalac showing a selection of his filmed street walks around the various districts of Tokyo. These video works were presented for viewing online  through the Cashmere Radio streaming platform 'Goatcast'. 

At the time To The Evening Star was the sole broadcast running weekly on Cashmere Radio and it's presence each Sunday evening attracted an international listenership who communicated with the show's presenters Owen Herzbreak and The Xoas Fö via Telegram chat groups, sharing their thoughts and experiences from around the world at this crucible moment in world history. A selection of experimental ambient and contemporary R&B music soundtracked each of the eight lockdown broadcasts.

AR_COMPOSITION_SALON_OBLIQUExANIMA_1.0

The project AR_Compostion_SALON_OBLIQUExANIMA_1.0 is a collaborative process engaging the co-operation of artists Lupus Siegert, MSHR, Asdrubal Gomez, Aujik and Ross Alexander Payne.

The project began as the vision of Ross Alexander, a way to create a form of imagined virtual-hybrid environment, incorporated within the unique self-enclosed micro-ecosystem of the Bärenzwinger compound. Beyond this Lupus Siegert provided technical and programming support along with a digital sculpture made specifically for the work. Further 3D digital sculptures were gathered from the various artists before undergoing the exacting process of conversion and optimisation for use within the Augmented Reality environment. The final composition was formed and implemented by Ross and Lupus after a period of several months of experimentation and research by the two.

"The Bärenzwinger site may be observed as a somewhat singular, quasi-self-contained, micro-ecosystem within which historically shifting states of habitation and usage are acutely observable at innumerable levels of state and scale.

Where figs were once used as feed a tall fig tree grows. Large reeds consume the basin which for many years marked a horizon. Algae, lichen and moss abound as they do and right now humans beings use the space to express their ideas. The entrenchment and sprawl of entanglement in this environment is starkly materialistic, highly transfigurational and evidently real.

The project AR_Compostion_SALON_OBLIQUExANIMA_1.0 facilitates a further abstracted layer of engagement and entanglement with the ecosystems within which we exist, using experimental technology to stimulate a playful imagination which enables us to interact simultaneously on a virtual and real-world level with our surroundings and bringing into question the role of ‘imagining’ (both in the present and of the future) in reforming our approach to human interaction with the ‘real’ or ‘natural’ world of which we and all else in existence are part."
