Cycladic Café Art Project | ΚERNEL, Raw Rate (Maritime Path), 2016
01/02/2018 until 15/02/2018
KERNEL was founded in 2009 in Athens, by the architect Pegy Zali and the artists Petros Moris and Theodoros Giannakis. It has exhibited in art spaces and museums in Athens, London, Berlin, Prague, Hong Kong, Chicago and New York.
The video Raw Rate (Maritime Path) is part of series of works that investigate a network of emerging geopolitical processes and their impact on the current socioeconomic context of Greece. The work was produced by a sequence of coordinates, which delineate the maritime path of the contemporary version of the Silk Road: a Chinese project of global logistics of which Athens constitutes a crucial node. By the insertion of the coordinates into the application Google Earth, a digital fragment of this path was generated and recorded. The melodic sound that animates this artificial sea originates from existing recordings from data centers, a phenomenon that has been named singing servers.
CYCLADIC CAFÉ ART PROJECT
As part of the Contemporary Art Program, the Museum of Cycladic Art presents the Cycladic Café Art Project connecting social spaces with art. Aiming to embrace both the greek and the international contemporary art scene, the Museum presents works by internationally acclaimed and emerging artists, which relate to current Museum exhibitions and activities. The Cycladic Café Art Project stimulates an intimate dialogue bringing art closer to everyday life.
