Ways of Space (2019), STEIM, Amsterdam – wereldpremière
From 5 December 2019 until 5 January 2020 the architectural sound art installation Ways of Space (2019) by architect Machiel Spaan (design, concept) and composer Rozalie Hirs (electronic music composition, spatialization, concept) is exhibited at STEIM, Schipluidenlaan, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The opening of the exhibition takes place during the event CONNECTOR XXII, hosted by STEIM, on 5 December 2019.
The intermedial installation Ways of Space (2019) by architect Machiel Spaan and composer Rozalie Hirs was developed in close collaboration during their artist-in-residence at Van Doesburg House, Meudon, France, from September through December 2019. The new work is inspired by the concept of the open plattegrond (English: open floorplan) Theo Van Doesburg (1883-1931) developed for his architectural work, including his own residence at rue Infroît, Meudon, France. Spaan has designed the installation and Hirs has composed the music. It is the third collaborative architecture/sound art project by Spaan and Hirs, after Curvices (2013-present), and the Listening House (2017-present). The residency is supported by the Mondriaanfonds, Theo Van Doesburg House, Stimuleringsfonds voor de Creatieve Industrie, and STEIM.
