Reality is a just a concept. Berlin-based artist Alicja Kwade transforms and duplicates unnoticed everyday objects like a hand pallet truck into the language of illusion, an imaginary, parallel dimension. The possibility not to function (or function differently?) is a subconscious capacity. Hubwagen by Alicja Kwade.

20 Hz

Made for the exhibition »Invisible Fields« at Arts Santa Monica in Barcelona, Spain.

In the description of this work and the related theory we read: »20 Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbles caused by incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz. Generated directly by the sound, tangible and sculptural forms emerge suggestive of scientific visualisations. As different frequencies interact both visually and aurally, complex patterns emerge to create interference phenomena that probe the limits of our perception.«
