On Thursday 26 November at 20:00 CET the architectural sound sculpture Ways of Space (2019) by architect Machiel Spaan (spatial design) and composer Rozalie Hirs (electronic music composition) is exhibited at STEIM, Schipluidenlaan, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Spaan and Hirs introduce the work through a short lecture and talk with the audience after the event.
The intermedial installation Ways of Space (2019) by architect Machiel Spaan and composer Rozalie Hirs was developed in close collaboration during their artist-in-residence at Van Doesburg House, Meudon, France, from September through December 2019. The new work is inspired by the concept of the open plattegrond (English: open floorplan) Theo Van Doesburg (1883-1931) developed for his architectural work, including his own residence at rue Infroît, Meudon, France. Spaan has designed the installation and Hirs has composed the music. It is the third collaborative architecture/sound art project by Spaan and Hirs, after Curvices (2013-present), and the Listening House (2017-present). The residency is supported by the Mondriaanfonds, Theo Van Doesburg House, Stimuleringsfonds voor de Creatieve Industrie, and STEIM. The event is Corona-proof, in accordance with regulations advised by the RIVM (The Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) and the Dutch government.
