OPEN WIRE – Digital Sculptures and Experiences
Tumi Magnússon participates in the exhibition OPEN WIRE, an exhibition of digital art in the public space, curated by Annette Finnsdóttir and supported by Køge Kyst. The exhibition can be experienced on the art route “Tråden” (The Thread) running from the KØS museum to Søndre Havn harbour in Køge.
The exhibition offers a series of location specific artworks by five Nordic, and one
Swiss, artists, all of whom have produced a digital layer with their art. Here at the
museum part of the artists’ preliminary sketches and models for the works found on
the route, is on display.
The works of art are inspired by the urban development in Køge, and with the
inclusion of network, the digital sculptures offer a different type of art appreciation in
the public space. The raw and industrial harbour environment is assuaged by a
digital layer filled with humour and reflexion, open up a dialogue on digitality in the
public sphere: How do we wish and intend to continue and advace this digital
communication and dialogue in the future.
Participating in the exhibition, are the artists Mogens Jacobsen (DK), Roman Signer
(CH), Tumi Magnusson (DK), Kim Grønborg (DK), Serina Erfjord (N) og Linda Hilfling
(DK). Some information on the artworks on the route: ‘ Cold Stain’ transforms the
humidity of the harbour into ice, which will slowly amass and shift shape as the
exhibition progresses. ‘Sparkle’ discharges blue, crackling sparkles that break the
industrial noise of the harbour industry. ‘Vege/xations’: Trees that make music when
hugged. ‘Transmission I & II’ where crooked thoughts and inventions are channelled
into the world in Danish, English, Esperanto and Morse code. ‘Køge Havn Banegård’
(Køge Harbour Railway Station) is an audio-visual installation featuring a train driving
through a house at the docks. ‘Two Horses’ invites the audience to observe galloping
horses through a porthole, and feel the rhythm of the horses’ hooves, as they pull
wagons through the Tetra Mountain ridge in Poland during winter. And finally ‘Et
offentlige domæne’ (A Public Domain) which examines grey areas within our media
