TONSPUR 75_lost: ROBERT ADRIAN (1935-2015). Roberto Paci Dalò (ITA): LONG NIGHT TALKS. FOR ROBERT ADRIAN
8-channel sound installation and 7-part poster series in the TONSPUR_passage
Opening: Sun, Jul 30, 17:00
LONG NIGHT TALKS. FOR ROBERT ADRIAN is the new work by Italian artist Roberto Paci Dalò created during his residency at TONSPUR - Q21/ MQ in July 2017.
The piece is composed of an 8-channel sound work and 7 images. In addition to it, the ORF commissioned a radiowork to be broadcasted on Ö1 Radiokunst Kunstradio on the opening night.
The piece is dedicated to Robert Adrian X (1935-2015), a pioneer in art and telecommunications. The Canadian artist lived in Vienna since 1972 and his contribution to the art world has been also witnessed by a large retrospective at Kunsthalle Wien back in 2001. Adrian received the Prize of The City of Vienna in 1993, and the Austrian Art Prize in 2011. He was awarded the Nam June Paik Art Center Prize in 2009.
Through more than two decades Adrian and Paci Dalò shared a close friendship also working together on several projects including a film Paci Dalò especially created for Adrian's major retrospective. The two used to sit in Adrian's studio in the Wiedner Hauptstraße and share long night talks dicussing passionately art, radio, transmission, technologies, web, surveillance, sound, warfare, and conflicts.
In LONG NIGHT TALKS. FOR ROBERT ADRIAN, Roberto Paci Dalò worked on Adrian's voice using it as a main material for the installation. The visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the grain of the voice together with field recordings, instrumental and electronics sounds. A journey into fascinating times and experiences where visitors are surrounded by sounds in the unique TONSPUR multi-channel audio environment.
Parallel to the sound work, the artist created a series of 7 drawings conceived as a constellation: A nocturnal sky which is also a graphic score for the piece. The seven drawings reflect the 7 days of an imaginary week together with Robert Adrian in his studio in Vienna's Wiedner Hauptstraße.
A daily journal of Paci Dalò's residency at Q21 (images, texts, sounds) is online at: robertopacidalo.com
Books and records of the artist are available at Buchhandlung Walther König at MuseumsQuartier.

Exhibition at RIAT.Q21 (ARTISTIC BOKEH)
Venue: RIAT.Q21 (ARTISTIC BOKEH)
RIAT Research Institute for Arts & Technology introduces its Cryptoeconomics: Infrastructures & Artefacts program at its space at Q21 in the MuseumsQuartier.
In the 1970s, three different developments (the ciphers DES and RSA, as well as the Diffie-Hellman key exchange) came about, allowing individuals with modest computing resources to encrypt communication.
“These developments came on the eve of the microcomputing revolution, and computers were gradually coming to be seen as tools of empowerment and autonomy rather than instruments of the state. These were the seeds of the crypto dream.” (Narayanan, 2013).
Our contemporary “cryptosphere” is dominated by novel socio-political experiments based on previously unavailable technological parameters which are embedded in distributed ledger technologies, smart contracts”and algocratic governance.
The blockchain (through Bitcoin) is unarguably the key invention of the 21st century. The accelerating forces of decentralization change not only how we think about electronic cash, but also changed our perception of organizations, trust and non-human agency through the introduction of immutable and unstoppable code on the blockchain.
Cryptoeconomics: Infrastructures & Artefacts engages with this prevailing crypto-economic condition of the 21st Century and offers an overview of its ongoing impact in Austria.
Cryptoeconomics: Infrastructures & Artefacts is an ongoing program by RIAT that launched in August 2017 at the BLOCKCHAIN evening hosted by Club Alpbach Oberösterreich in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy.
The program will be featured in various iterations over the next year, including Ars Electronica, Ethereum DEVCON and the The Future of Demonstration.
RIAT is an institute for research, development, communication and education in the fields of cryptoeconomics, the blockchain , experimental artistic technology and open hardware. It explores and actively stress-tests the role of research and development in the age of zero-trust, through novel forms of presentation, discussion and publication. Examining the global cryptoeconomic condition and its effects on culture and society, we foster an open and interdisciplinary discourse to improve crypto-literacy for the society of tomorrow.
