Translation Zone(s): Experiential Translation in Action part 2

A dialogue with Danica Maier about her project Mechanical Asynchronicity 


Score: Mechanical Asynchronicity by Danica Maier and Martin Scheuregger

Danica Maier – Score (5 min clip) –

‘Score: Mechanical Asynchronicity (Score: MA) is a collaborative project between visual artist Danica Maier and composer Martin Scheuregger. The project takes a single historical lace draft from the Nottingham Lace Archive as the starting point for new live and installation-based visual-musical works. This lace draft would have originally been used to programme a mechanical lace machine – it is, in essence, a set of graphical instructions.’ (Maier)

This dialogue will follow Danica’s presentation and overview of the project Score: Mechanical Asynchronicity, with the aim of contextualising the project in relation to Experiential Translation network – drawing out key themes, ideas and provocations that have emerged over the 3 day performances, events and conference.
