Experiencing Interruptions?


BIOSPACESHIP integrating biological and celestial forms into a psychedelic video and sound composition. There are two fluid, transforming elements “feminine” and “masculine” merging into a Rorschach’s like animated “Inkblot”. 

 The Video composition is made of filmed puppetry of colourful modelling clay submerged in water and then extensively processed in various editing software.
The sound was composed by using synthesiser software.

The Biospaceship project is a body of many associations.
It consolidates concepts related to the changing culture, development of technology and the impact of modern discoveries on the biological world.
The project formally refers to the first computer graphics from the 1950s - works by Ben F. Laposky the Oscillons series and works by Herbert W. Franke.
It also has many references to the 1960s, the times of utopian vision of an ideal future.
The project alludes to the psychedelic imaginations of flower children born just after the Second World War. During the Cold War, the fear of a nuclear attack was still in the air, and tendency for escaping in to ideas of a colourful future were present.
The emancipation of women and the sexual revolution changed the culture and socioeconomic situation in most places in the world. The gender concept begins to undergo a metamorphosis.
The Biospaceship integrates the female and male elements where they merge into one.
A Biospaceship is a peculiar biological spacecraft. It illustrates the rush towards space travel and at the same time is supposed to evoke a glowing colourful creatures in the depths of the ocean that is so largely unexplored. This unidentified biological form divides into parts like cells under a microscope. The micro and macro cosmos becomes one and the artificial meets the biological.
