The Wave in the Mind

Huuto III 1.2.-25.2.2024

Roberto Fusco & Emma Fält
The Wave in the Mind
1–25 February 2024

The Wave In the Mind by artist duo Fusco and Fält continues their work that combines computation, analog and digital technology, with traditional drawing and printing techniques. They have been exploring the physical and expressive properties of the water surface and sand, and in their latest installation The Wave in the Mind they are encountering storms from different perspectives. Modern sensor technology provided measured data for the simulation of a storm from 2004, while subjective accounts of the sea state found in ship journals provided means for a speculative reconstruction of a storm from ‘34.

The dark figures hovering in the space are covered with marks of the water movement, but they are more subtle and silent than gigantic waves.

The exhibition’s soundscape is composed of drawing sounds on different materials and human voices. These embodied attempts to follow and entrain with the waves use our sensuous bodies, instead of reductively measuring and calculating natural phenomena.

Roberto Fusco, b. 1980, is an Italian media artist based in Helsinki. His work, in the form of installations or audiovisual performances, combines material and digital elements towards the creation of hybrid forms in which the processes of negotiation with technology become manifest and the materiality of the world, with its complexity and unpredictability, transcends what is computable. He has presented his work at festivals such as Ars Pori 2022, Aavistus audiovisual biennial, ANTI festival, Blooming, LUX Helsinki, Mänttä Art Festival, Ars Electronica, VAFT, NIME, RIXC, FLUSSI, Currents New Media, Videoforma, PIXELACHE, AAVE, Borealis, Plektrum and in galleries such as Kuopio Art Museum, ArsLibera, Third Space, Titanik, Rajatila, MUU Galleria, the Science Gallery and EYEBEAM.

Emma Vilina Fält, b.1983 is a multidisciplinary artist working with drawing, installation, performing arts, and participatory practices. Her main interests are in live acts, contact and togetherness of drawing. Fält is inspired by the body, its boundaries, and possibilities to connect with the world. Fält seeks to expand and stretch the understanding of drawing and the ways to present it. Previously her work has been presented at Baltic Circle, Mänttä Art festival, ANTI-Contemporary Art Festival, ITAK – Stage, M_ITÄ Biennale, Kuopio Art Museum, MUU – and Third Space – galleries. She works as a director of Thinking through Drawing, an international group of drawing researchers.
