Mediated Experiences at Sense Lab

Four separate works that materialise digital phenomena by Maja Frögård, Andrejs Ljunggren, Jacob Stenman and Daphne Zuilhof.

What sensorial nuances are filtered out and what is perceived on the other side? By setting up physical communication filters we invite you to experience the possible distortion. Will the nuances be lost in translation or will the message gain in expression?

Conversation Piece: Share the experience of one of the
most frustrating glitches of digital audio conversation.
Marble of Doom: Step onto the marble of doom and be suspended in time.
Touch screen: Explore the sensorial experience of the touch screen.

Sense Lab: 12 April

Date: Saturday, April 12th
Adress: Lövholmsgränd 12, Platform Stockholm
Time: 12:00—18:00

Sense Lab is a mind opening experience, where people engage in sensory experiments that stimulate and awakens all our senses. By using our smell, sight, sound, taste, touch and intuition in new combinations and approaches we hope that it will open up our minds and encourage us to view our environment from a different angle.

Join us for the first ever Sense Lab. We promise to stimulate all your senses!

MEDIATED EXPERIENCES
Maja Frögård, Andrejs Ljunggren, Henrik Ljunggren, Jacob Stenman and Daphne Zuilhof

Mediated Experiences consists of three separate works that materialise digital phenomena.
How do we experience communication transformed through different filters? What sensorial nuances are filtered out and what is perceived on the other side? By setting up physical communication filters we invite you to communicate with each other and experience the possible distortion. Will the nuances be lost in translation or will the message gain in expression?

Conversation Piece: A shared experience of one of the most frustrating digital glitches of audio.

Marble of Doom: Step onto the marble of doom and be suspended in time.

Touch screen: Exploring the limited sensorial experience of the touch screen by presenting the variety of tactile, time and transparency.

ÅTERBLICK

A scented audio walk that triggers memory flashbacks.
The scents and sound file for the audio walk are picked up inside the Sense Lab exhibition. The walk starts at the entrance of Platform Stockholm where a woman joins you for a walk to Liljeholmen’s tube station.
All visitors are asked to bring their own headphones.

SUGAR HIGH
Josefin Vargö

An edible sugar installation that takes form by experimenting with a cotton candy machine.

Sugar is probably one of the most common ingredients used in the world. A multifaceted ingredient that triggers many emotions ranging from appreciation, addiction to hatred from both its consumption and production. Sugar itself has many different forms, tastes and originations, besides the common white sugar. This piece is an initial experimentation of the plain, common yet versatile white sugar.

Face-o-mat

Face-o-mat is a portrait machine, similar to a photo booth. After taking a seat the user can chose between a black or a colour portrait. The basic difference to interface of common photo booths, is the “facelift” button. When switched on, Face-o-mat creates an animal like facelift. After approximately three minutes, the customer is asked to pay in order to get the personal illustration of his face.

Face-o-mat is an interactive experience between artist and visitor, which also creates a performance for people passing by. The personal face-illustration is a reward for the visitor and it reminds him of the experience in the machine, which makes people happy. :-)
