BETWEEN | YOU | AND | ME is a wall of light and sound.
Like any other wall, it redefines an existing architectural space. Instead of stone, this wall consists of dynamic, ephemeral media: beams of light within the air and ultrasound. Unlike countless separative and immaterial walls in society BETWEEN | YOU | AND | ME is a wall people can walk through.



BETWEEN | YOU | AND | ME is funded by the  ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE GRANT OF THE SAXON STATE MINISTRY FOR HIGHER EDUCATION, RESEARCH AND THE FINE ARTS 2011 (click link).

GROUND press foto

The GROUND is in motion. Thus it will move the visitors which stand on it. The motion of the ground can be felt via the equilibrium sense (sense of balance), can be seen and can be heard. The grinding, sanding, pushing, bouncing, vibrating, creaking of the mechanically moved material will produce a varity of tonal qualities with diverse roughness and awakes associations of earth quakes, tectonical plates in motion, but also of the diffuse experience of loosing the ground. In 1934 Husserl wrote about the ground as reference for the perception of space and the perception of self, ‘Now, when I “conceive” the earth as a moved body, I use a ground to which all experience of bodies, and hence all experience of continuing to be at rest and in motion, is related.’ (Husserl, 1934). Vilem Flusser as an emigrated jew wrote about a hovering self over the abysm in his auto-biography 'Bodenlos’ (‘Groundless’). In his book 'Vampyrotheutis Infernalis' Flusser analyses the floating 'otherness' of a huge octopus in the deep sea and draws a line to the psychology of human beings.

'every one everyone' is a performance in proximity that seeks to amplify sensation and inherent person-to-person connectivity via the pulsation of cerebrospinal fluid and its emphatic effect on people. With the guidance of the choreographer performers are given a movement in the form of a rock sway synchronized with their cranio-rhythm. After a time, with a room tuned to this rhythm spectators are welcome to join.

||||     SOUND INSTALLATION ‘STALKER 2 ’ AND DOCUMENTATION ‘STALKER 1’ BY ANKE ECKARDT AT THE 'EVIL MUSIC' FESTIVAL AT HKW, BERLIN (click link).

Dates for the Exhibition: 24 - 27 of October 2013, opening on 24 October at 7.30pm
Place: House of World Cultures, Berlin
Panel on the theme of ‘Evil Music’: In addition, I will take part in a panel together with Steve Goodman (author of ‘Sonic Warfare’, musician) and moderator Holger Schulze on Saturday 26th of October at 7pm at House of World Cultures, Berlin.

‘Stalker 1’ is a collection of Youtube-videos and documents the application of ultrasonic (hypersonic) loud-speakers in public space. Therefore a smaller ultrasonic loudspeakers is used. The speakers’ extremely vectored output – namely at a radiation angle of three degrees – is compared often to a pocket lamp’s light cone. With the aid of hypersonic speakers it is possible, even over a considerable distance, to expose target individuals or small groups of people to an onslaught of sound. Prolonged exposure to these Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRADs) can cause nausea, severe headaches and disorientation yet they are considered still as non-lethal weapons. Both the military and the police deploy hypersonic speakers internationally as a means of crowd control, for example in Senegal in January 2012 and at the Anti-G20 protests in Pittsburgh in 2009. A police officer quoted by The Washington Times said, ‘[An LRAD] is designed to get people to do what police want. It makes them uncomfortable but does not hurt them’.

The sound installation ‘Stalker 2’ is an unknown auditive zone in the entrance area of the House of World Cultures in Berlin. “… what it was? The fall of a meteorite? The visit of inhabitants of the human cosmos? We directly sended troops there. They did not come back … for the rest – I don´t know, I don´t know … From an interview with the Nobel prize winner professor Wallace with a correspondent of the RAI” (in 'Stalker' by Andrej Tarkovsky). Seven years later the catastrophe of Tschernobyl represented a dramatic analogy to this fiction. The whole surrounding became depopulated (officially called 'zone of alienation'). Some of the workers, who took care of the abandoned power station called themselves 'stalkers'. At the House of World Cultures an ultrasonic sound beam creates an unknown auditive ‘zone’. For that matter a kinetically moved, large parabolic mirror (that reminds on radar units, oldschool and science fiction at the same time) is transformed into a reflector; it becomes a voice.

||||     PANEL "GROUND - DEBATTE ÜBER DEN BODEN" INITIIERT VON ANKE ECKARDT IM RAHMEN DES "SALON FÜR ÄSTHETISCHE EXPERIMENTE" (click link).

Datum: Mi, 25.09.2013 um 19h
Ort: Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin

ZUM PANEL: GROUND - Debatte über den Boden
In ihrem künstlerischen Forschungsprojekt GROUND beschäftigt sich Anke Eckardt mit dem Boden und der Boden-
losigkeit. Das Panel soll verschiedene Denkräume eröffnen. In Anknüpfung an die Anthropozän-These wird gefragt, mit welchen Methoden der Mensch in die Erdsystemanalyse im Rahmen der aktuellen Klimafolgenforschung einbezogen wird. Desweiteren wird der Boden aus erkenntnistheoretischer, philosophischer Sicht betrachtet. Anke Eckardt baut derzeit eine Installation, bei der die Besucher direkt auf einem sich bewegenden, instabilen Boden stehen. Im Rahmen der disziplinenübergreifenden Debatte eröffnen sich Fragen nach Formen der Wissensproduktion und Wissensrepräsentation. Es gilt Daten, Denkmodelle und künstlerische Transformationen kritisch zu betrachten und auf eine denkbare Emergenz hin zu untersuchen.

Gäste:
Prof. Dr. Claus Pias, Medientheoretiker, Philosoph des Digitalen; Kybernetik-Spezialist
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Lucht, Physiker, Nachhaltigkeitswissenschaftler, Forschungsfeld Erdsystemanalyse
Anke Eckardt, Klang- und Medienkünstlerin

||||     ARTIKEL "VERTIKALITÄT UND MACHT. DREI HÖRSTUDIEN: 1945 – 1965 – 2012" VON ANKE ECKARDT
IN DER ZEITSCHRIFT FÜR SEMIOTIK, DOPPELHEFT IM JAHR 2013 MIT DEM THEMENSCHWERPUNKT "SITUATION UND KLANG - ZU SEMIOTISCHEN ANSÄTZEN IN DER KULTUR- UND MEDIENWISSENSCHAFT DES KLANGS" (click link).


Herausgeber: Holger Schulze
Mit Beiträgen von: Susanne Binas-Preisendoerfer, Jochen Bonz, Christa Brüstle, Anke Eckardt, Veit Erlmann, Franco Fabbri, Annie Goh, Carla Müller Schulzke, Ulrike Sowodniok
In Zusammenarbeit mit dem internationalen Forschernetzwerk der DFG >Sound in Media Culture: Aspects of a Cultural History of Sound< http://www.soundinmediaculture.net

Zusammenfassung "Vertikalität und Macht. Drei Hörstudien: 1945 – 1965 – 2012": Die Autorin unternimmt eine Grundlagenstudie, um das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen den Nutzungsstrukturen innerhalb des vertikalen Raumes und der Repräsentanz bzw. Inszenierung von Macht zu untersuchen. Kulturgeschichtlich, aus Perspektive einer Historischen Anthropologie des Klanges, richtet sie ihr Augenmerk neben den klanglich-physischen Aspekten vor allem auch auf die psychologische und politische Dimension des Hörens. Zur Analyse wird darum ein Kategoriensystem genutzt, welches sowohl das Erklingende als auch das Gehörte in seiner physischen und seiner semiotischen Dimension erfasst. Situationen vertikalen Hörens werden dabei anhand von drei historischen und aktuellen Fallstudien analysiert: 1965 als die Regierungen der DDR und der Sowjetunion Düsenjets über der Berliner Kongresshalle in Westberlin fliegen ließen; 1945 als sowjetische Soldaten auf dem Dach des Berliner Reichstages ein Siegerritual durchführten; und 2012 als die Berliner Polizei am 1. Mai über Berlin-Kreuzberg einen Hubschraubereinsatz flog.

Summary "Verticality and Power. Three studies of listening: 1945 - 1965 - 2012": The author undertakes basic research on the relation between the structures of use in regards to vertical space and the means of representation and performativity of power. From the perspective of cultural history and especially from a historical anthropology of sound she concentrates not just on sonic and physical aspects but furthermore on the psychological and political dimensions of listening. For the analysis she applies a set of categories to approach the actual sounds as well as the hearing experience in its physical as well as its semiotic dimension. She analyses situations of vertical hearing by means of three historical and contemporary case studies: 1965 when the governments of the GDR and the USSR sent fighter jets over the Berliner Kongresshalle in Western Berlin; 1945 when soviet soldiers performed a triumphant ritual on the roof of the Berlin Reichstag; and 2012 when the Berlin police undertook a helicopter operation over Berlin-Kreuzberg on May 1st.

||||   WORKSHOP ' PUNKT / LINIE / FLÄCHE / RAUM – AUDIOVISUELLE INSTALLATIONEN '
Ein Workshop mit Anke Eckardt

Datum: Fr/Sa 14./15.12. 2012, jeweils 10-13h und14-17h
Ort: Medienhaus, Grunewaldstrasse 2-5, Raum 111

'Was damals als sogenannte Musikalisierung der Künste begann, setzte sich in Aneignung räumlicher Eigenschaften in der Musik und zeitlicher Dimensionen in der Bildenden Kunst fort. Klangkunst resultiert aus dem Bemühen der Künstler, die Gattungsgrenzen zu überschreiten.' (Helga de la Motte Haber)

Wie kann ein Punkt, eine Linie, eine Fläche erklingen? Wie unterschiedlich können diese visuell erscheinen? Welche Möglichkeiten bietet die haptische Ebene?

Der 2-tägige Workshop widmet sich dem Raum anhand der Geometrie als mathematische Struktur, deren Grundelemente Punkt, Gerade, Ebene in experimentellen Setups zwei- wie auch in Zusammensetzung zu geometrischen Körpern dreidimensional sinnlich erfahrbar gemacht werden sollen.

||||   Presentation of the idea of a new artistic research project on the theme of instability
       ‘BODEN - Installation for a given staircase’ (click link)  @ the   GRADUALE 2012 ( (click link).


"You sign on for a ride you probably think you got at least some notion of where the ride´s goin. But you might not. " (from Cormac Mc Carthy: "No Country for Old Men")
The past is resonating, the foundation of the present unstable, the stairway to the future uncertain. Parts of the existing granite staircase of the Amerika Haus are transformed. The intertwining of swinging springs, vibrating infrasound transducers and a segmented projection of a visual structure onto itself enables the perception of an unstable ground. The physical experience develops only when visitors stand on the installation.

||||   CONTRIBUTION (click link)   TO THE 'SOUNDWORKS' EXHIBITION @ the
       ICA - INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ARTS, LONDON (click link).

One hundred new sound works have been produced by artists from all over the world. Selected by our curators and art institutions worldwide, the artists have been invited to submit a sound work, taking its stimulus from themes evoked in Bruce Nauman's Days, presented concurrently in the lower gallery, as part of our season on sound.

My contribution is CLOCKWORK: BROKEN by Anke Eckardt & Henry Koch.
CLOCKWORK : BROKEN is a short, concise composition following the theme of an old clockwork that decicively structures time whilst getting messed up with clouds of memories of its own sound material. Acoustically, CLOCKWORK : BROKEN consists of glass, all the sound material was recorded by the artists themselves. With an axe they systematically cut Christmas tree balls as well as mirrors and the complete stock of glasses from a former restaurant. Using three directional microphones they recorded the breaking, fall and impact of the glas on the ground.

The exhibition program of CTM.12 approaches the festival theme SPECTRAL by exploring the phantom effects of our perception, the bad vibes of sonic weaponry, and the truthful or artificial mysteries that are embedded in technological memory storage. The series with works by Nik Nowak, Anke Eckardt, Chris Salter, AUDiNT, Felix Kubin, Ursula Bogner, Alexander Christou and Laura Lòpez Paniagua takes us beyond the safe ground of clear cause-and-effect relationships, and project us into the uneasy "interzones" between the promises, traumas, and fuzzy logic of ubiquitous technology.

       CYNETART FESTIVAL 2011 (click link).


‘BETWEEN | You | AND | ME’ (multi-sensory installation by Anke Eckardt, 2011) is a wall of light and sound. The enhanced version was presented for the first time.

The 15th edition of the CYNETART festival for computer-based art is very much characterised by the essence of the Festspielhaus Hellerau that opened 100 years ago. Between November 16th and 26th 2011 the building designed by Heinrich Tessenow especially for the proclaimed “Body Liberation“ movement will be transformed into a space laboratory where cultural, artistic and academic as well as technological dimensions of contemporary and future body perception can be experienced. Visitors are invited to explore various experimental setups at the interface between naturalness and artificiality and thus to experience their corporeality in new and different ways.
