experimental visual – sound performance
Liquid Culture is an experimental visual-sound performance that explores the depths of sound perception and water acoustics. This submersive visual-sound performance is the beginning of a series of interfaces that bring the experiencer into a liquid environment, to become part of the ebb and flow of sonic and subsonic carrier waves.
This sonic experience submerges listeners into an auditive aquatic journey that starts from the depths of the Drava River to the cochlear fluid of each listener, directly with a vial of its own water. Listeners are invited to wear HydroBuds, custom earbud vials that contain water from the Drava filtering the sound. These vessels act as immediate physical filters, liquid audio mediators, which become the last transition of sound before perception.
Aisen Caro Chacin (US), born in Boston, MA is a regenerating composition of cells that produce a woman, a Venezuelan, a Spaniard, an U.S. American, and an animal whose patterns of migration are not based on seasons, but rather chance, chaos, and opportunity. Her radar is on Human Computer Interaction HCI- designing new perceptual interfaces; and discovering the limits of digital media. She received an MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons in NYC, where she taught Physical and Creative Computing. She is currently designing assistive devices as Ph.D. candidate for the program of Empowerment Informatics at University of Tsukuba, Japan. She was featured as an inventor in Future Tech by Discovery Channel and awarded and published by PopSci. Her work has been exhibited at the NY Museum of Art and Design, the New Interfaces for Musical Expression Conference, The New York Hall of Science, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Post-City Ars Electronica, Dorkbot, EarZoom. She looks forward to finding other suspended disbeliefs in her pocket. Web: www.aisencaro.com

Robertina Šebjanič (SI) is a Ljubljana-based intermedia artist. Her art practice evolves around the fields of humanist and natural sciences. For several years her research focus has been oriented towards the field of bio-art, living systems, AV performances, noise/sound art, installations and interactive ambiental responsive immersive environments.The context for her ideas and concepts is often realized in collaboration with other authors, which is why her works embody interdisciplinarity and informal integration.She is a member of the HackteriaLab network, the UR Institute, Ljudmila Ljubljana and Theremidi Orchestra.She studied at the Famul Stuart School of Applied Arts and sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana (SI), as well as at the Valand School of Fine Arts in Gothenburg (SE).
