~~Kulunka~~ (installation, 2012) An immersive installation that evokes visual and tactile ways of perceiving vibrations. Low frequencies beyond our range of hearing are transmitted to water in a glass container, creating patterns of waves. The morphing geometries are illuminated by strobing, high—powered LEDs and projected on the surrounding space. Tactile transducers beneath the platforms where visitors lie down allow them to ‘hear’ with their bodies, evoking a peculiar sensation of gravity and — at times — the loss of it. The harmonic series of the inaudible frequencies are diffused three—dimensionally through a quadraphonic sound system. Visitors are submerged in a tactile sonic experience enveloped by the rhythms of the composition, and enter a universe of sound and light, in which the boundaries between imagination and reality blur in an amalgamation of the senses.
Yolanda Uriz Elizalde (b. 1982, Pamplona) — a Spanish audiovisual artist.
She studied music in Spain and in the Netherlands. Her interest in contemporary art forms took her to study Sonology (at the KC) for two years, and she has specialized with a Master in ArtScience, recently completing it at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten (KABK), The Hague (NL) in 2012.
Her work is focused on creating immersive experiences by bringing to awareness matters that are unnoticed with the aid of nowadays technology. From experimental music to installations, solo or in collaboration she has presented her work in Europe and USA, at festivals such as Medea Electronic 2008, Athens, GR, (Ademen); TodaysArt 2010, the Hague, NL (Structet); Spark Festival 2010, Minnesotta, USA (Ademen); Rotterdam Film Festival 2011, NL (Lepokoa in Palm Top Theater exhibition); De Nacht van Kunst & Wetenschap 2011, Groningen, NL (Asland Escape); STRP Festival 2011, Eindhoven, NL (Cymating, Lepokoa); Blikopener 2012, Delft, NL (~~Kulunka~~); Kontraste 2012, Krems, AT (~~Kulunka~~).
She is also curator of the monthly series of concerts wonderwerp at Studio Loos (Den Haag), for the promotion of experimental forms of art.
