Victoria Vesna: Vibrations Matter Workshop

Victoria Vesna will present “Vibrations Matter” a lecture workshop on nanotechnology and sound. Using the Blue Morph installation as the base of exploration, the artist will explore the surprising sounds of metamorphosis and cellular transformation that happens in sudden surges, broken up with stillness and silence. Her work can be defined as experimental creative research that resides between disciplines and technologies.

Victoria Vesna will present “Vibrations Matter” a lecture workshop on nanotechnology and sound. Using the Blue Morph installation as the base of exploration, the artist will explore the surprising sounds of metamorphosis and cellular transformation that happens in sudden surges, broken up with stillness and silence. Her work can be defined as experimental creative research that resides between disciplines and technologies. With her installations she explores how communication technologies affect collective behavior and how perceptions of identity shift in relation to scientific innovation.

Her Blue Morph installation is on view on Governor’s Island from May 27 through Sep 25.
