STATION ROSE: "Digital Quarter Century - Patterns & Pleats"

Tue, Nov 26, 17-22:00
Opening: Mon, Nov 25, 18-22:00
Venue: Ovalhalle
Free admission

2013 is a very special year. STATION ROSE has reached the Digital Quarter Century (DQC) mark. Counting the decades is obsolete; now, the century unit is what counts. *DQC* is a current project designed to conserve cultural heritage as viewed from the perspective of artists, the pioneers of digital culture; first-hand reportage; launched in 1988 with diskettes.

:// Facts: A quarter-century ago, Elisa Rose (visual artist) & Gary Danner (musician, composer) founded Station Rose as Vienna’s first address of the open digital leading edge. 1988: opening; 1989: eight months in Cairo; 1991: exile & online; 1992: Gunafa clubbing, A/V performances worldwide; beginning in 1994: digital bohème, homepage & social Web; 1999: webcasting; 2002-06: TV show on ARD; 2008: LogInCabin, books, vinyls, CD-ROMs, DVDs, CDs; since 2011: back in Vienna.

Inside the Ovalhalle STR will create *DQC_Patterns & Pleats* as a playable installation, an A/V sculpture, a digital archive, a playpen for grownups, and a way to maintain an overview of the information. Elisa Rose & Gary Danner perform live in audiovisual sessions mixed with <Nature is Cool>, station operation. *DQC* data are looped into new A/V material composed especially for the event. The translation of processual art into a material form has been a prime area of emphasis for years, activities STR refers to as New Media Arte Povera. This aesthetic, originally developed in Frankfurt as a response to banking sector insanity and economic crisis, retains its validity to this day. An installation and performances make it visible, audible, bring reduced sensuality, glitch art, recycling & bass into play. Sound & projection encounter wood, cloth, urban gardening and data—Contemporary Art 2013.

STR will involve other artists, contributions by colleagues will include Liam Gillick, Howard Rheingold, Geert Lovinck, Dr. Motte and others.
