Space/Pli is the final of three sound performances by German sound artist Johannes S. Sistemanns as part of a new site specific large scale installation at PS Art Space.
This commissioned composition is realized with the Decibel ScorePlayer is an ipad application that enables network-synchronised scrolling of proportional colour music scores on multiple tablet computers.
Commissioned by the Department of Culture and the Arts Western Australia.
Working with cling film and sound, Sistermanns creates immersive environments of the highest order by testing the limits of space, sound and silence, and Glad Wrap.
'My approach to space is intuitive, and visitors shouldn't be trying to [interpret] my message - it's not important what I am thinking or imagining,' Sistermanns states.
The exhibition runs from the 2 May until the 17 May (Tue-Sat, 11 am-4 pm & special opening Sun 17 May, 11 am-4 pm).
Doors open 7.30 pm-show begins at 8 pm.
