AND RESTART.

The exhibition 'Ticker Tape' invites artists to provide an immaterial and text-based work of art via wireless communication. Textual work is relevant in the selected artists' oeuvre and this invitation could be an artistic pleasure or a challenge. Light, color, rhythm, frequencies, language and symbols are used to convey these artistic interventions. They are also intertwined between two devices and two spaces. This project aims to explore other networks, methods, channels and visual strategies to connect art and artists with the public.

 

29 artist where selected for the project and each work runs for 24 hours in NICC's Antwerp and Brussels location simultaneously. Both LED-screens can be seen from the streets.

 

Ticker tape machines are a forerunner of the modern computer-controlled printer, it was the first technique to transfer text remotely to a printing device.

Concept: Cel Crabeels, board member NICC, Production: Lina Ejdaa, Philippe Van Damme
