O que somos

EME>>, Estúdio Móvel Experimental, é uma residencia móvel de pesquisa integrada em meio ambiente e sustentabilidade, entre arte, ciência e tecnologia. O projeto tem duas funções principais: seu design ser ecológico, isto é, desenvolver a máquina para que seja coerente ao meio ambiente e abrir espaço para artistas desenvolverem ações artísticas em sítios específicos. Este projeto é direcionado como uma plataforma interdisciplinar de pesquisa com foco na Mata Atlântica e sustentabilidade.

Os artistas e pesquisadores residentes no EME>> visitarão alguns municípios do estado do Rio de Janeiro também como festivais de arte, mídia e exposições. Uma de suas funções é alcancar público por meio de intervenções urbanas, publicações, documentação e interação utilizando plataformas de novas mídias como internet e redes sociais. Através deste projeto multidisciplinar pretende-se enfatizar a conscientização ambiental, histórica e artística do Estado do Rio de Janeiro.


EME >> Estúdio Móvel Experimental is a mobile residency working in a platform between art and science researching the natural environment and sustainability. EME >> has two main functions: as a customized camper van that is designed to be ecological, i.e., to adapt its machinery to the natural environment; and also as a mobile studio that can support facilities to explore the urban and natural environment, realize public/ live arts and educational events around the Guanabara Bay in the state of Rio de Janeiro. It opens space for artists and researchers to use the EME>> machine as a tool for communication and interface their work, the natural environment and the audience.

Lightbridge

Parallels

A reaction to the concept of parallels between technology and the environment is the artwork Lightbridge. This is a multimedia artwork realized between the UK and Brazil. A macro-astronomic performance using sunlight as a subject to work in between two artists based physically in different sites, based on observation, communication and commitment achieved via long-distance communication tools and time/space synchronization. A macro geographical situation to a micro geographical action.

A line is drawn to connect two geographic points in space over the globe. A distance covering 9289km, most of which is over the Atlantic Ocean. By following the time it takes for the sun to reach Brazil from England, a bridge is created. Two artists commit to reaching their coastal starting points, and they point their cameras at the pre-calculated bearing towards one another. Therein, both become the anchors of each end of the bridge, and their framed landscape is gradually illuminated by the change in light and sound, between twilight and sunrise, that eventually reaches one and then the other. Lightbridge reveals a palette of subtle colours and sounds which break on the west Sussex coast of England on Sunday March 1st 2009 until the earth’s rotation and journey around the sun allows the same light to reach the coast of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil where it is finally caught.

Two parallel landscapes are connected by the light of one day. On one screen, two countries in two different continents are presented, between them one ocean. These are two landscapes yet are one garden.

Might this suggest we live in the same landscape? Or be part of different landscapes at the same time? If so, what are we doing about it as individuals and collectively?
