Nedine Kachornnamsong: Yes / No / Maybe
interactive social art event

On Wednesday, 23. 12. 2009, at 8 pm. you are invited to the Moderna galerija café for the opening of Yes / No / Maybe, an interactive social art event developed by artist Nedine Kachornnamsong in residency at the Ljudmila laboratory and Museum of Transitory Art - MoTA. The Code.EP crew will flex up the event musically.

Technology has often been portrayed as an antagonist that alters the structure of humanity. On the other hand, new aspects of human behaviour are evolving with the help of new technology. They reflect the way we see ourselves in the world - a reflection of our desires.

Yes / No / Maybe is an interactive installation and a social event which transports online dating elements into a physical setting. The displacement of virtuality into a physical setting is an attempt to dispense with the techno-utopian/dystopian view and a means to question the concept of humanity and its dualism politics.

Visitors will receive tags containing chips which will transmit signals that will influence the color of light in the environment near them. The colors are yellow, green and red and come from traffic lights; they reflect the level of the individuals' interest in socialising. The three fundamental principles of online dating (anonymity, declaring the level of interest, and the playful atmosphere) will be used to create a virtual situation in a real environment.

Music by the Code.EP DJ Crew: Woo-D, Bakto, Zhe, Dado and Borka!
You can expect funk, afro, hiphop, breakbeat sheet, mixed grill ...

The number of tags is limited, so don't be late!

Nedine Kachornnamsong (Thailand/Sweden) was born in 1980, Bangkok, Thailand. After receiving her M.Sc. in IT Product Design in Denmark, she continued to explore in the area of contemporary art as a means of questioning the suspended relationship between the being and the world. Since 2006 she has lived and worked in Sweden. She completed her MFA at Valand School of Fine Arts, Sweden with her specialization in new media.

By conducting research-in-practice with a focus on social interaction, spatial condition and tangibility, her works reveal a state of contemporary. Currently, she is working on questions related to possible integration of online representation and experience into a physical environment.
