This Weekend! VVFA LIVE (Jasmin Blasco) in London for Digital Design Weekend at the V&A!



Very Very Far Away will be LIVE this weekend, September 23rd and 24th, at the seventh annual DigitalDesign Weekend at Victoria and Albert Museum in London. This special VVFA performance and workshop will be the first installment in the Sightseer Project, a speculation about a space tether anchored on an artificial island in the Pacific.

Over the course of the weekend, VVFA will set up as a pop-up radio station broadcasting in-person interviews (Garnet Hertz, David Benqué, Joseph Popper), playing back episodes from VVFA podcasts, conducting performances with members of the audience and presenting improvised music by WORMS and other space-themed musical selections.

Very Very Far Away (VVFA) is a public facing research project consisting of a podcast, a workshop and a series of special projects, seeking to re-ignite future ideologies. Its method uses Space Exploration as a lens to examine current ideas and values which may pertain to future societies through technological advances.

Les Rochers - Artist Residency (pilot)


“We were interviewed by the local paper today. The journalist was quite curious about our work and we had a great conversation with her about her thoughts on French society. Being interviewed is such a great way to learn more about our own work through the eyes of others. We are also becoming more articulate when describing our work.”– Jacinta Yelland

During the summer of 2017, Creative Migration launched a pilot artist residency at Les Rochers in Normandy, France. Jacinta Yelland, an Australian actor & theatre-maker, and Ethan Metzner, an American musician and recording artist, were selected to create works influenced by their time in the small town of Cerisy-la-Forêt.

Jasmin Blasco's In From The Cold (review) at the Antarctic Pavilion

ANTARCTICA PAVILION

The Antarctica Pavilion is hosted in yet another splendid palazzo, on the southern part of the main island of Venice, facing Giudecca. It hosts a number of works by international artists, some of whom had the chance to travel to Antarctica and produce work over there. I enjoy the way works are presented on top of photographic tripods and the overall balance between lyricism and science.

My favorite work is by LA-based artist Jasmin Blasco, a sound piece you can listen to on portable FM radios out in the garden. At a short distance from the solar powered radio transmitter and antenna that feed my radio, I sit near the canal and listen to about fifteen minutes (the total duration is an hour and a quarter) of Blasco’s improvised narration. The artist recounts a story of South Pole exploration in the early 20th Century from the perspective of the leader of the mission, but also from that of bacteria and other life forms trapped in the ice since millennia ago. The work is eerie; sentences find their way through long moments of silence, when one can hear the interference in the radio signal as well as ethereal synth chords. There are many references I connect with, from the short stories of H.P. Lovecraft to John Carpenter’s The Thing and the music of Vangelis. The piece is immersive, and I lose all sense of time and place very quickly; it’s only that annoying feeling I get in Venice, urging me to see more art and meet more people, that pushes me to come back from the Pole.

In From the Cold

Antennae, FM transmitter, car battery, solar panel, power inverter, media player (MP3), Memorex portable handheld radios, earbuds, looping audio file (75m4s).

In From The Cold is a radiophonic piece in 6 +1 parts, intended for continuous transmission:

0. The Ice
1. The Ship
2. The Thaw
3. The Deluge & The Storm
4. The Drowned World
5. The New Ooze
6. Frost.

With each section, the piece maps a myth of the world's origin with Antarctica at its center.


Through the lens of the ice continent, In From The Cold focuses on environmental shifts, our limited perception of time, and life in extreme environments. A speculation about systemic changes over millennia, the piece contrasts human existence with geological timescales. Antarctica contains a stratigraphic index of geological epochs and preserves bacteria in cryostasis over millions of years. With rapidly rising temperatures caused by climate change, the Antarctic ice sheet is a time-bomb, releasing ancient life forms into a post-human primal ooze.

In From The Cold features Anna Kleiva and was inspired by interviews with D. Graham Burnett, Christina Agapakis, Jana Winderen, Mike Harding and Stephanie Roland.

Listen to the interviews here:


In From The Cold was presented at the Antarctic Pavilion during the 57th International Art Exhibition in Venice, Italy.
