Pulse, Flow

Nenad Popov


The audio-visual installation Pulse, Flow oscillates between cinema and painting, and creates a space to slow down and contemplate. It consists
of a dark, empty space partially enveloped in a projection of a petri dish containing Physarum Polyceph- alum, a curiously smart type of slime mold. The back area contains the specimen’s life support system, as well as a computer system tracking 

the real-time fluctuations within the gigantic cell itself. These changes are synthesized into a soothing sound- scape projected into the installation.

nenad Popov is a media anarchist with a focus on live cinema pieces, sound installa- tions, film installations, weird sound making contraptions, and occasional parasitism

on public cultural funds. He has collabo- rated with artists such as Daan Brinkmann, Electronic Opera, Erfan Abdi, klara Ravat, lillevan, and his works have been exhibited at Sonic Acts, Dis-Patch, TodaysArt, E-Pulse, Share, and Ars Electronica.
