Trans-universal constellation bolwerK combines parascientific history, anthropology, and technology to introduce participants to the electromagnetic spectrum and how radio and farming metaphors intertwine.

During this open lab, participants grow crystals and experiment with their physical, acoustic, electrical, and electromagnetic properties, transmitting and receiving signals from the body to the mind and intra-acting frequencies. Participants leave the lab with new skills and thinking critically about the contemporary cooptation and privatization of the electromagnetic sphere. Hosted by Marthe Van Dessel and Martin Lundberg of Futurefarmers, and electronic musician Yasi Perera. Cash bar begins at 4PM.

About the exhibition:

Founded in 1995 in San Francisco, the internationally renowned Futurefarmers group takes a collective, playful, inquiry-based approach to art making that spans multiple disciplines and ways of inhabiting the world, from sailing and farming to environmental design and DIY scientific experimentation.

Their imaginative, environmentally conscious projects provoke audiences to question the many ways that humans try to control nature, or imagine themselves as separate from it. Their work can be described as social sculpture, a type of making that activates art’s potential to change society. Futurefarmers: Out of Place, in Place surveys their practice to date, and includes what they call a new “speculative fog-harvesting machine,” a live project to be constructed and activated over the course of the exhibition. This exhibition is part of YBCA’s ongoing Changing the Ratio initiative. Over 70% of YBCA’s exhibitions from 2017 through 2019 are dedicated to monographic exhibitions of female artists or female-led collaborations.
