ART THAT CARES – MUSIC THAT BENDS
Trondheim Matchmaking 2009 is proud to announce the opening of the very first
In relation to this very last Trondheim Matchmaking, Electroboutique launches its new conceptual store:
Art that Cares.
The 150 sq. meters concept store named “Art that Cares” will be opened on October 16 in Fjordgt. 11, Trondheim, Norway.
Electroboutique’s first concept store in the Nordic countries will offer unique art works developed by our highly competent contemporary artists, designers and engineers during the last 5 years.
The store, designed in eye catching eco-friendly style will emphasize the visual and functional qualities of Electroboutique’s amazing art products.
Trondheim Matchmaking 2009 is the very last. Since 2002 we have arranged Trondheim Matchmaking as an annual international festival for art and technology, and in the light of the positive development this project has had over these years, TEKS will from 2010 start a new biennial for art and technology in Trondheim under the title Meta.Morf.
Electroboutique´s ’Art That Cares’ summarizes many of the challenges that Trondheim Matchmaking has touched upon through different projects over the years. The many questions for discussion that Electroboutique´s project represents are vital to the future of the field of media arts.
Music That Bends.
This years concert program can be perceived as an attempt of cross pollinating some parts of apparent contradictions, sort of an acupressure therapy of tension points between the hazardous and the perfected. From the so called unschooled to the schooled, from the not established to the well established. From the slightly nostalgic to the, well, less nostalgic. Use of old technology and use of new technology. We see no opposition in this, but rather a supplement. The aesthetics of this program might not have a single red thread, but may rather be viewed as a multi colored filament.
