NEO (an unnamed ecological art object)
Molišová, Kateřina ; Lungová, Barbora (referee) ; Klodová, Lenka (advisor)
This bachelor thesis – The Sphere/The Planet – is based on the recycling of waste found in the nature to an art object. The Planet is centred on my need to participate in bringing the landscape back to its original state while also reacting to humanity's attitude to the waste production and its influence on nature. I bind and shape the found waste into a planet-shaped sphere that is meant to be a reflection and companion of the planet Earth which is overfilled by the waste produced by humans. The whole process of creation is recorded on the video that is also part of the installation.
Contingency Methods / Hungry eyes and Dog soul / Bind your laces while walking
Svoboda, Jonáš ; Lungová, Barbora (referee) ; Cenek, Filip (advisor)
The camera, as a creature, wanders through space, takes action. We feel tense, every moment of time. In everything. Dance of particles, screaming in unreal tempo. The spatial properties of the haptic world are given by the composition of a score for particle dance. Free notation for sysyphian eternal soul players. Playing a common song of our time and space. Wave. Space between the particles - emptiness. The shape given by the structure of particle dances. So how can you get it. Radiation, Fuse. This is the erosion of the score, the decomposition of the system. Deacon and cleaners. Treasure hunters. Is space between shapes empty? Slavery is not due to the impoverishment of man, but to his transformation into an instrument. The impoverishment of the film's medium is the transformation of the instrument from the instrument into a human being. From the apparatus - rewriting the environment of three-dimensional shapes to the surface, on the apparatus - the emulation of human experience schemes. From indifference to false experience.
Cycling Mechanism/Linguistic Fluidity
Dlabaja, Martin ; Lungová, Barbora (referee) ; Sterec, Pavel (advisor)
The main purpose of this work is to show relative scales of temperature changes during holocene and pleistocene [1.] using evaluated combined data sets from Greenland Ice Core Project and Vostok Ice Core project [2.]. Projects are researching values of CO2 in atmosphere using deep drills into sedimentary ice sheet layers corresponding in its maximum depth (approx. 3 km) to 800 kyr BP [3.] Values of CO2 correlates with temperature [4.]. Then we can lay out different cultural peak events on weather background and analyze the influence of temperature changes on rise and fall of empires, (Mesopotamia, Egypt, Shang, Indus, Rome) or study dramatic extinction events (Younger Dryas), watch the very beginning of culture in Fertile Crescent to witch trials in european “dark ages” in very close and evident correlation to weather change. Second goal is introduction to perceiving deep time as such.Third would be to raise questions and discussion about our own supposedly rigid timeline given to us by archeology by purposefully picked events such as meltwater pulses in Younger Dryas. (Lost cultures in Younger Dryas? Boloid impacts? Immediate emergence of writing systems without any proto evidence?) Of course a point of this work I didn’t mention is to present scientific data in aesthetically pleasing and effective way. These researches can be really “mind-blowing” if presented thoughtfully, (here in a way that is both attractive and shows scales and impact on our present day in a context of a global warming), but stays hidden from common knowledge due to for some “sterile” presentation in data sheets, which can be hard to read and make sense out of for people missing context.
