The focal point is a translucent flag, its movement choreography is controlled by complex robotics.
Beyond the flag´s operation range, a laser and a light sensor are positioned. Upon collision between
laser and fabric – sound is created.
This work’s poetry lies in the random-appearing combinations of floating
silk and gritty sound. Underlying this is Stumreich’s precise audiovisual composition. Every drape has been analyzed on the
basis of its sound. According to these aesthetics, the robotics of the flag choreography SOVEREIGNTY was programmed to run
in a 9-minute loop. Marked by sharp laser beams, sovereignly associated elements (as the title implies) can be found, such
as leeway, a change of direction, or a drop.
Kathrin Stumreich graduated in Digital Arts at the University of Applied
Arts Vienna and transcends disciplines. Recently, she won the Marianne.von. Willemer Prize for Digital Media and her work
has been internationally shown since 2008.
