OPEN CALLAs we yearn for the possibility of recreating such magic in yet another environment, we extend an open call to everyone, beckoning towards landscapes awaiting restoration and habitation, harmonizing with our collective spirit. Should you harbour dreams where you envision a collectivity joining forces, hanging out and dancing, we invite you to share your insights.
“The most distinctive feature of Terraforma is its magnificent setting: a palace and holiday home acquired by the Milanese Arconati family of Italy’s noble societal class. Years of on-site restoration have renewed and salvaged some of the original sculptural masterpieces that make up the marble-sandstone theaters and fountains plotted around the grounds.” – Notes on the Spectacle: Terraforma & Nextones 2022 by Jazmina Figueroa on Flash Art.
In 2022, Terraforma and Space Caviar presented the new Vaia Stage, named after the extreme weather event occurred in 2018 in some north-eastern regions of Italy destroying about 42.500 hectares of forest. The stage is entirely build out of wood from trees felled by the Vaia storm in order to help the community make use of the vast amount of lumber they have invested in removing from the mountains before it rots. Thanks to the volunteers, the Vaia Stage was assembled during the Vaia Stage Workshop held at Abraxa. Full video.
Terraforma Journal is a new editorial project by Terraforma. A biannual publication exploring the intersection of sound, art, ecology and contemporary culture at large. Terraforma Journal — issue #3 explores the generative possibilities of the synthetic process through a multifaceted research line that connects sound, music, and the adjacent methods of sound generation in audio electronics to fields such as artificial intelligence, ecology, language, logic, and everything in between. In chemistry, physics, electronics, philosophy, linguistics, music, sound, art, and literature, “synthesis” is the combination of components or elements to form a connected whole. The Issue explores the subject through the words and images of Amnesia Scanner, Deep Fake, Chris Korda, Hanne Lippard and many more.
