INTERFERENCES – Forty-Four Excuses for Participation and a Zero

Mario de Vega with BA Fine Arts and Media & Interaction Design students

A collaborative project between Bachelor Fine Arts and Bachelor Media & Interaction Design students from ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne following a workshop led by sound artist Mario de Vega, visiting professor during the fall semester 2019 at ECAL and resident at La Becque | Artists Residency.

Through a conceptual approach to sound, this exhibition proposes a scenario in which the eye takes the role of the ear, and vice versa. Within the notion of “Aural Vision”, the presented works result from a short seminar that served as an introduction to a larger educative experience which aims to extend collaborations between Media & Interaction Design and Fine Arts, using sound as a bridge.

The project is based on the 45 definitions of the INTERFERENCES publication. It investigates the ongoing developments of timebased media, taking advantage of its benefits and advances, through a critical perspective.


From 29 January to 2 February 2020, from 12pm to 8pm (except Thursday and Sunday 7pm) – Stand D11.
