SOLVATION – a molecular-dynamic process. Enveloping the active substance molecules of fat in milk.

This presentation is completely live. An artist adds various reagents in small portions to a chemical process to the fluid phase floating on the surface of a liquid. Thus, the color, shape, and texture of the fluid components are dynamically changed and create artistic abstraction. The process, transmitted through the web-camera, generates sound by given algorithm. A computer program captures the dynamics of the situation and creates LIQUID~DO

LIQUID~DO may be associated with LIBIDO in the context of energy deliberation from a liquid substance, the chemical process. The energy is interpreted by the sound. The potential of the liquid is represented by the sound. If in a human it is “sexual potential”, then in a liquid it is different. We are interested in the nature of self-organization, both visual and audible, and the way these two areas interact with each other in a liquid system.

SAVE lab is experimental mutual project of Julia Borovaya (artist) and Edward Rakhmanov (scientist). SAVE is an art-science laboratory, which explores the world of chemistry and physics through the artistic lens. It is a space for working with the living, the digital, and the technological. It is a space for working out and giving new interpretations and explanations to the reality. It is a space for the collaboration of artists and scientists. The laboratory is located in the basement of the Department of Chemistry, Moscow State University (Russia). It used to be a labyrinthian air-raid shelter of the Department, a place for protecting people from the scourge of war and disasters.
