ISM Hexadome is designed to reflect the progress of our time and the artists among us pushing the boundaries between technological possibilities and artistic spaces. During March - April 2018, 9 individual and collaborative installations and performances will be presented by outstanding international contemporary artists from the sound, immersive art, and visual disciplines in the Atrium of Berlin’s Martin-Gropius-Bau. Within the ISM Hexadome, each work opens a door into a world crafted in sonic and visual detail, demonstrating the significance and power of spatialization for sound in complete harmony with immersive visual art and architecture.
The starting point for the work is the focus on the cause and effect of resonance. It aims at triggering a process of mutual assimilation, consuming and absorbance of the other subject as a whole. It deals with the friction between two elements, searching for the observable space in between. The visual part of this work is created in close collaboration with the Institute for Geosciences at the Utrecht University.
Developed by the ISM in collaboration with Pfadfinderei and ZKM | Center for Art and Media, the ISM Hexadome is an immersive experience that fuses art with technology, unlike any previous experience within a museum context. Throughout 2018 - 2019, the ISM Hexadome exhibition is scheduled to travel internationally.
