Loops in Transmission (Zanke v prenosu)
Staš Vrenko’s project Loops in Transmission deals with technical media that are capable of constructing specific modalities of measuring and recording time while also creating unique technology-based temporalities.
The sound installation Loops in Transmission is conceived as an interactive system of three identical sound devices or tools intended for the processing of sound and logical signals.
The foundation of each tool are smartphone applications developed for this specific purpose, extended with a selection of analogue-digital modular electronic circuits.
Through a system of (electromagnetic and data) feedbacks in individual devices and through feedback on the level of communication between devices via LAN connection, Loops in transmission resonate and sonify the microtemporal processes of analogue and digital tech media that are otherwise inaccessible to human perception.
Staš Vrenko is a media artist, musician and designer of electronic instruments. He holds a master’s degree from the Department of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. His artistic practice combines different fields of art, with an emphasis on research into sound, electronic media and technologies, kineticism and performativity. He presented several solo projects – ,separated values (2021-, osmo/za), Fabrications (2020, P74 Gallery), Record (2019, Kino Šiška), Loops in Transmission (2018, osmo/za), Adoption Techniques (2017, P74 Gallery), and Connective (2016, MoTA) – and has exhibited in international group exhibitions and festivals.
