scheffelstr.21, berlin, Germany
The collective of the "unmeasurement" project exists since 2017 and perform with physical theater, live music and analog projections in different spaces. Started by the architect Claire Terrien as a research about tools and measuring, the project evolved into a transdisciplinary project mixing installation and performance. Lena Gaetjens is a light artist and illustrator with a background of set design. Caroline Tallone is a musician (hurdy-gurdy) but also a luthier and an instrument maker.

from materials to sounds, scaling architecture into music and reverse
Architecture models are amplified, used and transformed as music instrument. The process is reversed and is reconsidered in the models and within the space.

Architecture is no longer just about the traditional building activities, but could be seen much more as a transdisciplinary artistic practice.
Starting from a given space a model of the scale 1:100 is build. The set design, made of ropes and sticks is based on tensegrity systems and integrated into this modelisation. The performer uses the space according to this plot and is accompanied by a musician, that plays and composes sounds out of the amplified model.

The performances are each time an appropriation of the space through trained scores. Both the visuals and the music are building miniature environments with tools, ropes or wood cubes that become landscapes.

Strongly influenced by the work of Xenakis, the performance and the objects are strongly interconnecting architectural and musical parts, setting them in dialog through switches in scale (ground principle of the thinking of architecture and urbanism). Being performed, the space is given a stage and a time.
