"Thermal” is an on-going research project about vulnerability, molecular irritation, high frequency reception, and electromagnetic activity amplification. “Thermal” culminates in the creation of objects, printed matter and sound. The performance is based around the electromagnetic activity and high frequency fluctuations produced by microwave ovens: electro-domestic devices used by more than 40% of the population worldwide. “Thermal” makes use of hardware based on logarithmic detectors developed by ://R. In this latest incarnation of De Vega’s ongoing project, presented for the first time ever in Canada, the artist puts forth a new model for audio/visual performance: a live event with the exchange of invisible matter at the forefront.
"Thermal" is co-presented with Festival Akousma.
