Zuzanna Zgierska & Louis Braddock Clarke

Van Slingelandtstraat 134, Den Haag, Netherlands
Zuzanna Zgierska (Poland/Netherlands) and Louis Braddock Clarke (United Kingdom/Netherlands) form an artistic duo which interprets notions of research, design, philosophy and science. Their multi-disciplinary approach focuses on how technologies and production methods shape social and political relations. When not inspecting the topographies of iron ore sites, they extrude screen surfaces into portions of edible substance or chase lightning storms across industrial deserts.

The emergence of digital infrastructures has created a more dense atmosphere, one consisting of a multitude of signals. New wavelengths in the mode of: radio, microwave, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, x-ray and gamma ray set out the invisible fundaments for architecture. Rather than following the rules of bricks and mortar, what gives structure are the groundless, ever-updating waves, fabricated by the in-comprehensive levels of atomic time. These construction units (although immaterial) travel across physical terrains in a motion which can tracked, measured and tapped into. The future living environments call for a re-calibration of tools and systems of measuring. The innovation would be to create the eyes of the skin for the contemporary technological architecture. The methodology would involve harvesting, mapping and analysing the architectonic spaces directly influenced by the plethora of electromagnetic signals.
