Winter Activities along the Sicilian network

Attivita’ Invernali

Prima a novembre a Palermo, presso Dimora Oz, adesso al BOCS di Bagheria. Il primo Worshop, introduzione all’analisi e alla progettazione di installazioni multimediali tenuto da Federico Bonelli. Il secondo tenuto da Gabriele ‘Asbesto Molesto’ Zaverio di “elettronica di base”, in cui partendo dal recupero di componenti si e’ arrivati a affrontare le basi dell’elettronica. Una attivita’ comune con lo stesso filo conduttore, concepita come operazione di bella divulgazione e facilitata dal trasformatorio. E tutto esaurito! Arte, tecnica, scienza, storia, attivismo, tutto finalmente dato per scontato, superato dalla voglia di imparare e dalla pratica di vita comune. Grazie anche alla sapiente regia di propaganda fatta dagli amici della Dimora OZ, del BOCS di Bagheria e alla storia cucinata dal Presidio Sucusclan che ci ha sfamati e nutriti. Organizzeremo presto altri incontri, il ferro (del saldatore) e’ caldo e le mani fremono. Pure-data, free software, radio a galena, electro-waste riciclabile, fare, costruire, pensare, esibire, condividere. Riprenderemo, ripeteremo, alzeremo il tiro inviteremo altri docenti, faremo formazione e azione. Informale e fattiva. Riproporremo anche in altri posti il bel lavoro di introduzione fatto veramente per tutti. A tutti gli studenti, ognuno a modo suo ricco di cose sapute e curiosita’ stimolanti un grazie dai docenti, per aver imparato.

Winter Activities

In november first, in Palermo at Dimora Oz, then in Bagheria, at the BOCS. Two introductory workshops facilitate by Trasformatorio. First one, an introduction to analysis and project of media rich and interactive installations, by Federico Bonelli, the next by Gabriele Asbesto Zaverio, basic electronics, were starting from the recovery of components from e-waste students were lead tolearn the basics of electronics. An activity sold out and conceived following a common approach “trasformatorio style”. Art, technic, science, history, hack-tivism, all finally given for granted, because our wish of learning and practice of common life is more important. Thanks to a great propaganda and support from Dimora oz and BOCS in the two occasions and to the cooking history of Sucus clan, that feed us and nourished as well. We are in the process of organising more meetings of this kind, the iron (of the soldering) is still hot and hands are trembling. Pure-data, free software, trench radio… to do, to think, make, show, share. We will take up, repeat, try more, invite other teachers, we will do formation and action. Informal and productive as well. This introductory work, though to be accessible to anyone will be repurposed, and our students have occasions to grow. To all students, each one of them rich of knowledge and curiosities, a thank you from us, cause you have learned.

Workshops

In the heart of Palermo


A New node of a growing Network

We are very happy to give space here to the news of the birth of a very interesting new project in the City of Palermo, connected to our spring activities by the participation of Andrea Kantos to the trasformatorio#1.

Dimora OZ is opening up to the world in style, and I am sure more collaborations and ideas will spur from this new center. Something is already boiling in the big pan…

So, let’s hear what they have to say about themselves and about their program. Opening is the 17th of July, all informations can be found here: on the facebook page. If you are in the area dont miss it!

On July 14, opens in Palermo Dimora Oz, one permanent laboratory for the visual arts and performance.

The project was born in the rooms of Palazzo Barlotta, where the mecenate Roberto Bilotti Ruggi d’Aragona have supported as he did in the past the artists.
The core of the project is the button coworking area, which houses a Kantos Andrea, Andrea Mineo, Alessandro Giglio, Claudia Di Gangi, Gabriel David Gandolfo, Nike Pirrone, Patrycja Stefanek, while Valentina Parlato are planned for 2014 collaborations with Federico Bonelli, Desideria Burgio, Vincenzo Amenduni, Precarie Editions, Rizma.

At the same time open to the public Oz House launches the first annual workshop: Origins. The workshop will be a reflection on the causal nodes subjective and collective identity, due to practical and relational positions; a “radical” is not intended as a look at the past (culture, styles, or historical processes), but as an inner revolution in the causal processes in which we are connected to the world, and somehow making sure that the latter will prove to be the space of awareness.
The laboratory Origins opens with the presentation of six works: Spare parts Alessandro Giglio, Axis Mundi Gandolfo David Gabriel, Dance Afford Claudia Di Gangi, Shockways Patrycja Stefanek In Your Future by Nike and Pirrone Nowadays, Palermo, July 16th 2014 Valentina Parlato.
Origins is a project on urban and cultural mythologies, the precarious state of things and the desire to pursue an artistic reflection that it is not merely self-referential but a cultural experience of a community that has the need for resources and suggestions. Dimora Oz is a project of placemaking, fits into the recontextualization of spaces making them active and dynamic cultural centers. The form of inquiry into the origins, it is often diverted one way on the past, while Origins, in the sense of relation, causality and determination, open aspects on the present and focus on specific problems and contexts The most modern and repeated.

OZ is an interdisciplinary laboratory dwelling, divided into design spaces: Co-working, Performance Space, Black Room, Living Expo, OZSelect and a laboratory of Green Design (with a hydroponic vegetable garden).

Il 14 luglio apre a Palermo Dimora Oz, uno laboratorio permanente di arti visuali e performance.

Il progetto nasce nelle stanze di Palazzo Barlotta, dove Il progetto nasce nelle stanze di Palazzo Barlotta, dove il mecenate e operatore culturale Roberto Bilotti Ruggi d’Aragona ha supportato – così come accaduto in passato – gli artisti presenti nello spazio.

Il nucleo pulsante del progetto è l’area coworking, che accoglie al suo interno Andrea Kantos, Andrea Mineo, Alessandro Giglio, Claudia Di Gangi, Gandolfo Gabriele David, Nike Pirrone, Patrycja Stefanek, Valentina Parlato mentre sono previste per il 2014 collaborazioni con Federico Bonelli, Desideria Burgio, Vincenzo Amenduni, Edizioni Precarie, Rizma.

Contemporaneamente all’apertura al pubblico Dimora Oz lancia il primo laboratorio annuale: Origini. Il laboratorio sarà una riflessione sui nodi causali dell’identità soggettiva e collettiva, determinata da pratiche e posizioni relazionali; una “radicalità” non intesa come sguardo al passato (cultura, stilemi o processi storici), ma come rivoluzione interiore nei processi causali che ci vedono connessi al mondo, e in qualche modo facendo si che quest’ultimo si riveli come spazio di consapevolezza.
Il laboratorio Origini apre con la presentazione di sei lavori: Pezzi di Parti di Alessandro Giglio, Axis Mundi di Gandolfo Gabriele David, Afford Dance di Claudia Di Gangi, Shockways di Patrycja Stefanek, In Your Future di Nike Pirrone e Nowadays, Palermo, 16 luglio 2014 di Valentina Parlato.
Origini è un progetto sulle mitologie urbane e culturali, sullo stato precario delle cose e sulla volontà di portare avanti una riflessione artistica che non sia meramente autoreferenziale ma un’esperienza culturale di una comunità che ha necessità di risorse e suggestioni. Dimora Oz è un progetto di placemaking, si inserisce nella ricontestualizzazione degli spazi rendendoli centri culturali attivi e dinamici. La forma d’indagine sulle origini, spesso viene dirottata a senso unico sul passato, mentre Origini, nel senso di relazione, causalità e determinazione, apre aspetti sul presente e focus specifici su problemi e contesti attualissimi e reiterati.

Dimora OZ è un laboratorio interdisciplinare, diviso in spazi progettuali: Co-working, Spazio Performance, Black Room, Zona Expò, OZSelect e un laboratorio di Green Design (con un orto idroponico).

T#1 Docs in process

Hello Folks,
T#1 ended and everyone is home safe. Busy times for me in the process of documenting these exceptional 2 weeks. It was hard. Many things happened and many amazing things have been developed in spite of bad weather, circumstances, obstacles etcetera. The most amazing for me is the spirit you all shared, the friendship we developed, the discoveries, the inspiration that will fill up my purposes for the next months, and I know yours as well.
For all the lurking bands of friends and foes alike, in the next weeks this site will gather a lot of informations on "stuff" done and thought of by all participating artists. Keep coming.
For my fellow trasformatoristas a big hug and a sincere "thank you" for being there all together, as peers.
