Generative Sculpture by Gerrald van der Kolk is an interactive study of the use of generative processes in a design procedure. The audiovisual sculpture makes use of various algorithms so that a new, unique solution is generated time after time. As a visitor you can control the work and exert influence on the image and sound. The sculpture is the graduation project of Gerrald van der Kolk (Viesueel Geweld collective) at Minerva Academy of Art, Design and Pop Culture. The realization of the sculpture is displayed at www.generative-sculpture.blogspot.com, where the concept, research and code are shared.
Groningen fosters much good visual culture, but unfortunately there are few prominent locations that are suitable for presentations. In 2011, Noorderzon cautiously initiated a small-scale lab in combination with a coaching trajectory for promising young AV artists from the North-Netherlands, with the ultimate goal being a project executed during an edition of Noorderzon. All the way from selection to presentation, the artists are supported by a wide range of AV and festival professionals from Groningen. After a successful first edition and an interim presentation in May of this year, AValanche has now become a permanent feature of the Noorderzon programme. This year, AValanche will present work by Sexton Creeps, Gerrard van der Kolk, Francesca Bardaro, Sarah Janssen and Eleanor Grootoonk in combination with Stichting GAVA and Janine van Veen.www.generative-sculpture.blogspot.com
