Man Machine in Stockholm

An artist whose work I very much admire, Sachiko Hayashi will be showing a new work as part of the Man machine exhibition in Stockholm next week. This looks like it will be a great show and I am not happy I will be missing it, due to my stationary status (re: family) at the moment:

Man Machine:
In the autumn of 2005 Interactive Institute organised a workshop where
five artists collaborated with engineers from the institute. The project
was an experiment with short processes where artists and engineers
collaborated on the boundary between art and technology.

The project theme was man and machine and the result of eight very
intensive days will now be presented in an exhibition at the National
Museum of Science and Technology. We will here show five installations
by five artists: Sachiko Hayashi, Tina Finnäs, Johan Thurfjell,
Christine Ödlund och Drott Johan Löfgren.

Sachiko Hayashi has chosen to work with snow. In her piece Flurry the
audience can interact with animated snow. Tina Finnäs allows the
audience to step into the spotlight to the tones of Frank Sinatra. Johan
Thurfjell has worked with dreams but never let us get a grip of them. In
Christine Ödlunds installation we walk inside a projected microscopic
landscape and Drott Johan Löfgren lets a rumble fish draw a automatic

The exhibition is curated by Björn Norberg. Participating engineers:
Olof Bendt, Fredrik Petersson, Alex Bustamante och Loove Broms. From
Interactive Institute has also Ingvar Sjöberg, Magnus Jonsson, Cecilia
Narström och My Lindh participated.

The exhibition is shown between 10/2-19/2 2006.
