ARTIST TALK with Susanna Hertrich and Jonathon Keats

Un/apparent sensory perception. Disorientations of a more-than-human sensory apparatus

The final exhibition of the event series “Forests of Antennas, Oceans of Waves” from 1-9 September in Liebig12 focuses on the artistic examination of human and non-human sensory perception of electromagnetic radiation. With works by Susanna Hertrich and Jonathon Keats.

Light and radio waves can be disorienting for birds and insects like butterflies, especially in cities. Also some other species, such as the elephant-nosed fish, have sensory organs sensitive to electric and electromagnetic fields, making them capable of electrolocation.

Using the animal kingdom as well as mythologies of electromagnetic phenomena as a starting points of reflection and speculation, the final exhibition of the event series Forests of Antennas, Oceans of Waves focuses on the artistic examination of both human and non-human sensory perception of electromagnetic radiation. The works presented in the exhibition use speculative approaches and thought experiments as starting points for their exploration of sensory relationships with anthropogenic signal-based invisible environments: To ensure that birds and butterflies arrive at the right place at the right time, and don’t get lost along the way, Jonathon Keats designs technologies to provide flocks and swarms with on-the-fly guidance directed by advance reconnaissance. Inspired by ideas of cybernetic systems theory, Susanna Hertrich explores the both mythologies and limits of human sensory perception through the notions of the ether and aesthetics of antennas as gateways to higher spheres.

The exhibition invites visitors to reflect on potentials and limits of bodily and sensory perception, and about how non-anthropogenic technological environments could look like.
