Davor Sanvincenti (HR): WE CHEER FOR THE SUN

20.-23.9., non-stop, multimedia installation @ &TD atrium, Edukultura SC x Ganz

We Cheer for the Sun is a multimedia solar clock, an independent platform for promotion of contemporary music and sound art, and a participatory installation. Invited by Culture of Change, the installation was created and designed by multimedia artist Davor Sanvincenti together with a mighty handful – dreamers, programmers, physicists, architects and musicians (Miodrag Gladović, Bojan Gagić, Nenad Kovačić, Tena Novak, Iva Peručić, Alen Sinkauz, Nenad Sinkauz, Natko Stipaničev, Boris Vidošević, Antonio Licitar, Silvija Stipanov, Davorka Begović…). Powered by the energy of the Sun, a solar panel supplies a platform of 4-channel sound pieces lasting from 490 to 570 seconds – the time needed for the sunlight to travel to our eye on Earth. Each piece is reproduced 8 minutes before every hour on the hour emphasizing and evoking the Earth’s motion around the Sun, its speed that determines and captures the rhythm of the sensorial spheres. We listen the time.

The workshop We Cheer for the Sun is a part of the project Edukultura SC supported by the Croatian Ministry of Culture and the Culture Department of the City of Zagreb.
