DEUS EX LUMINA
MON *BERLIN EDITION 2019
The sound artist Deus Ex Lumina, (born 1989, Buenos Aires, Argentina) designed the unique sound installation in the Berlin Edition of MON - a continuous, uninterrupted three-seconds rhythm as an artistic exploration of neuroscientific definition of the present.
No other art form is less bound to matter then sound. On the first "view". With reflections, echo, vibrations and frequencies sound is exploring space (and the physical matter within) in the most intense way. Deus Ex Lumina composed a real-time sound installation as the only invisible piece of art of the Museum of Now.
SOUND AS METRONOME OF THE THREE SECONDS OF NOW
Deus Ex Lumina created a sound installation which work like a metronome and which is tuned to a time frame of three seconds - the neuroscience-defined duration of the present.
With 20 beats per minute it makes the abstract period of the “now” tangible. The surround sound installation subdivided the exhibition hall into a system voluminous sound fields - all connected to each other and leaving the impressions of being in the middle of an unlimited soundscape.
