Singing Sentinels & Camera Futura

Opening New Order 5

27 Apr 2012

During the opening of New Order 5, dozens of canaries flew through Mediamatic Fabriek. The birds' song subtly changed as we slowly altered the atmospheric make-up, pre-enacting a post-carbon world. Furthermore, you could launch your body into space. You've had your picture taken as you floated in a future where gravity is no longer an issue. Music by deejay Mark From Middlesex (Red Light Radio).

New Order series

Futura and Singing Sentinels form the fifth installment of the New Order exhibition, which explores a world in which energy has become a fundamental principle of our society. Five consecutive solo shows feature new works by Dutch and international artists, designers and architects, each responding to various elements of society - such as politics, economy, health, food and experience - that together combine to outline a complete future world.
