The set consists of six items; a Catalyst, an Extractor, a Translator, a Converter, a Synthesizer and a personalized pill.
Is it possible to synthesize the ‘home feeling’ , so that that exact feeling can be artificially generated in the brain by means of a personal neurotransmitter pill?
If we can trace a memory path through brainmapping in the human connectome, can we retrieve the exact memory by activating the exact same signalpoints in the brain? Can we store a specific memory in a drug?
Wouldn’t it be nice to bring that personal ‘at home’ feeling with you to wherever
you’re going? It could fulfill a need for Mars travelers or immigrants or just for
someone leaving his home.
The MMRY Synthesize Set was part of the exhibition about the ‘at home-feeling’ in Kunststation Delden.
The Tandem Project is a collaboration between Marion Tischler/Bramscher Bahnhof D. and MIKC/Kunststation Delden NL.
The two art institutions are both situated in a former station building where the trains still arrive and depart.
Concept of the tandem project is:
An ART KIOSK at both stations with ZUHAUSE/ATHOME/THUIS souvenirs that give the traveler the feeling of home while traveling. Taking the feeling of home with you on a trip, but also feeling at home in a new country.
How could you achieve that?
The ‘Z-A-T’ souvenirs will show how a souvenir can appeal to the home feeling or make you feel at home again for a while.
Participants approx. 20 international artists at each location
