the perfect sync
2020, Total installation
The installation is made as a graduate project in the Master of Arts -Da. Masters in Digital Art (supervised by Boris Shershenkov, curated by Vadim Smakhtin), completed as part of the online residency of the NCCA in Yekaterinburg with the support of Kristina Gorlanova, exhibited with the support of the Zarya Center for Contemporary Art in Vladivostok, the scientific advisor of the project is Anton Biryukov (GAISH Moscow State University).
Used media:
Generative sound, light, fabric prints, ready-made.
570х845х380 cm
Length of the cycle:
A 14-channel media installation represents the synchronized life cycles of 14 neutron stars (radiopulsars) that were presented on the Pulsar Map on plaques of the Pioneer and Voyager spacecraft.

It creates a spatial experience of people/stars co-habitation and actualizes topics of time relativity and temporal changes. Installation condenses immense cosmic time and space scales to the comprehensible human dimension. It was created a mathematical model of the physical evolution of these neutron stars based on astrophysical data and research. Changes in physical parameters in the model affect sound synthesis parameters and represent the deceleration character of neutron star rotation during the evolution.

Hanged sound baffles contain binary encrypted parameters of pulsar periods and luminosity forming data poetics. The brightness of each light element is connected to the amplitude of the sound signal. It represents a metaphor of a pulsar as a cosmic beacon. The entrance hall that leads to the main installation body reconstructs the aesthetics of the post-soviet timeless scientifical atmosphere that represents the engineering background of the artist, research, and production sides of the installation.
