To celebrate the release of their new DVD, ‘Camera
Lucida’, on the award-winning label, Line, Evelina
Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand will present a variety of
audiovisual hors d’oeuvres followed by cyber-sumptuous
performances by Bas van Koolwijk, Tez, and Christian
Toonk.

Developed in collaboration with scientific
laboratories in Japan, Germany, Russia and Belgium,
Camera Lucida (chamber of light or lucidity) is a
sonic observatory that directly transforms sound waves
into light emissions by employing a phenomenon known
as sonoluminescence: ultrasound, propagating within a
liquid, triggers the formation and implosion of
micro-bubbles that reach temperatures as high as are
found on the Sun and emit light in the shape of sound
waves. To create the sonochemical compositions
comprising the DVD, the authors of the installation
joined forces with multiple sound artists, including
Alva Noto, Carter Tutti, Richard Chartier, Taylor
Deupree, Asmus Tietchens, and COH among others.
