Within Salon Digital, Ioana Vreme Moser introduces herself and her work.

Ioana Vreme Moser – Pirouette Machines. Fluid Components

This lecture takes the pathway of an ex-ballerina through fluid computers, handmade semiconductors and cosmetic synthesizers. We will tackle the seductive side and hidden narratives of circuitry in relation to natural systems, salty fluids, and minerals and discuss the importance of alternative hardware forms in the context of global electronic shortage and environmental decay.

Diving into the mineral realms of computer hardware, we will inspect the radiosensitive properties of galvanized leftovers to peak at how communication networks can be reinforced in a collective.

We will look at fluidics, a technology lost in history that doesn't require many resources to operate, only simple fluid matter guided by natural phenomena. Following water movements and swirls, this talk gives a glimpse into a hardware form that reimagines the morphology of our electronic machines.

Be aware: Access isn't barrier free.


The program for Digital Media at the University of the Arts Bremen launched a regular series of salon-style gatherings titled “Spectacle: Reenactments in the Arts, Design, Science and Technology.” The events have an open format and provide a forum for experiments, presentations and performances from a range of different fields, but with a common focus on old and new media, as well as technologies. The salon thereby enables a practice of reenactment as a way to make things past and hidden visible, present and also questionable.
Contemporary new technologies and media seem to cover knowledge with complex layers of materials, code/sign systems and history/organization. Reenacting can translate obscured knowledge, ideas and theories into bodies and actions. At the heart of this conceptual approach is a desire to turn past events into present experiences—although the very nature of the past prohibits such an endeavor.
The salon pursues the primary goal of opening closed systems and constructions (black boxes). Global power structures, as well as complex processes in development and production—leading to hermetic constructs—have made it even harder to understand science, economy and contemporary media, as well as new technologies. Recipients therefore tend to mostly grasp only their superficial level. The spectacle is a way to condense actions and processes. Reenactment, on the other hand, builds on repetition and history. But the spectacle is a moment in the here and now where everything flows together and culminates.
