Cognitive EMP

Ignas Krunglevičius

Soft Screen Alien imagines future aesthetics for technologically augmented post-human perception. It is conceived as an active installation work, a dynamic composition using sculpture, architecture, audible sound and visible light. But Soft Screen Alien also operates in an extended region of the spectrum, from infrasound to ultrasonics, from radio frequency electromagnetic waves to ultraviolet light; a radical update and expansion of Robert Barry’s seminal 90mc Carrier Wave (FM) (1968, now in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York). Cognitive EMP Blast is a new composition performed within the installation using its elements as instruments, a full-spectrum sensory assault designed to induce what the artist calls a “cognitive reset”.

Among many other works and exhibitions produced over the past half-decade, Ignas Krunglevicius (b. Kaunas, Lithuania, 1979) recently participated in the 19th Sydney Biennial, the 2015 Havana Biennial and the Nordic Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale. He was nominated for the Nam June Paik Award and is a recipient of the Sparebankstiftelsen DNB art prize.

This text is based on the material prepared by Kunsthall Oslo for Krunglevičius’ 2016 exhibition, that featured the sculptural installation Soft Screen Alien and performance work Cognitive EMP Blast.
