The Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media
[YCAM] presents polar m [mirrored]
, a brand new installation piece. Carsten Nicolai and Marko Peljhan, two artists who keep operating on the international stage, team up once every ten years for a collaborative investigation into the state, concept and informational environment of the ever-transforming “earth as environment” in the respective age. Part of this long-term project, this exhibition proposes a new understanding of human existence and living environments as formulated by the artists in the year 2010.

With polar m, they are proposing new perspectives on the global ecosystems. Their new work consists of two mirrored cubical spaces (one accessible and one not), a field of radiation generators and a system of radiation observatoria. It probes our understanding of the intelligence of nature and of human existence through the prism of radiation phenomena and their visualisation and sonification.
