In the process of technical planning, we work closely with artists and curators. When planning a project, a concrete realisation solution is developed. We work on finding the best way of technical realisation. Each artwork should be displayed in an optimal way, without influencing or detracting from other exhibits. If, for example, infrared headphones or directional speakers are used, noise protection measures must be taken or special audio furniture must be built. Similarly, there may be a need for blacking out, rear projection or transparent projection walls etc.
In this area, our focus lies on adaptation, restoration and repair of technical media art works.
A “historical” video installation should be “made fit“ for an exhibition, or be conserved. We can try to provide appropriate equipment to restore the installation/the piece of art to its “original condition”.
In addition, contemporary technology can be installed in historic equipment in order to preserve both the aesthetics of the work as well as to ensure smooth exhibition operation (e.g. Installing a media player in a VHS recorder).
As a result of our interest in early media art, we have accumulated a collection of “historical” and partly less well-known equipment.
The first video artists worked primarily with consumer devices, which were very expensive at the time. The technical leap from 8mm film to video greatly influenced artistic work, because the reproduction of work suddenly became much easier.
