    This exhibition presents the outputs of an interdisciplinary project firmly rooted in the idea that creative practice can be enhanced through its affiliation with fundamental science (and vice versa). The project was initiated as a collaboration between architects and crystallographers at Cardiff University in the United Kingdom in 2013. As two disciplines at different ends of the spectrum of scale, crystallography and architecture are rarely brought together.
     
    The main goal of the project is to produce new pathways for designers to learn from the structure of matter at the atomic and molecular level, recognizing that structural features found at nanoscales are possible design diagrams with multi-scale potential. In the last year, the research project has branched out into a special dialogue with Owen Lloyd, a sound artist based in the United Kingdom. This phase of the project has seen the development of a sound application based on periodicities found in incommensurate crystals.
     
    The exhibition at ACUD MACHT NEU will feature physical prototypes at various scales, videos, visual media depicting the design outputs of the project and a bespoke sound installation.
     
    With the support of:
    The Leverhulme Trust

    SEARCHING FOR ZOMIA #1: TIBETO-BURMESE SHAMANISM

    Thu 25.01 20:00 // PRESENTATION // ACUD STUDIO
    SEARCHING FOR ZOMIA #1: TIBETO-BURMESE SHAMANISM

    A presentation in sound and image recorded by Kink Gong aka Laurent Jeanneau.

    ABOUT
     
    From 2000 till 2014 Laurent Jeanneau was based in South-East Asia recording the music, songs and rituals of traditional cultures rooted in the remote Hinterlands.
     
    Those cultures who escaped the agricultural and social systems of the densely populated central valleys and plains of China, Lhaos and Thailand have kept their independence for centuries, protecting their beliefs and traditions against the dominant ethnic groups till very recently. In the past 20 years the growing interest in the ressources and the exploitation of those Hinterlands has lead to an ever increasing interference into the lives of those minorities. Many of the musical and cultural traditons presented here are no longer in existence.
     
    Laurent Jeanneau will present in a series of 5 events the recordings he made in those historical areas of refuge which James Scott calls Zomia.

    In Searching for Zomia #1: Tibeto-Burmese Shamanism he will talk about the specific dimensions of their spiritual beliefs widely called animism and by purpose uses the misleading term for what we easily in the western world call a Shaman, by introducing the Bima of the Hani , the Domsa of the Jingpaw, the Bimo of the Nisu in Yunnan-China or the Suni of the Nuosu in Sichuan-China, the priest of the Lisu in northern Thailand or the psychic healer of the Akha in northern Laos. They might call them priest, healer or trickster, they all have or had a function in their traditional environment, outside of the monotheist religions and inside Animism, superstition and super powers! // Bandcamp
