Paloma Kop | Magnetic Field Recordings
Online presentation & a discussion with Ida Hiršenfelder
The Digital Dish will offer a view behind the scenes of Paloma Kop’s multimedia art practice, focused on the process used to create Magnetic Field Recordings (2021) and her ongoing series, Electromagnetic Earth. Today, electricity and magnetism are mainly considered in the context of human-made technologies, but nature, the earth and the cosmos are alive with all forms of radiation and electrical activity. The artist investigates the blurry boundaries between nature and machines as well as how recent technology provides new ways to observe and explore the environment.
