performance by Farmers Manual
Buckymedia is a work conceived by Farmers Manual as 80-sided, 5m diameter “bucky balls”, in reference to the architect and visionary Richard Buckminster Fuller. By moving these structures, the viewers can navigate through different interpretations of real and virtual spaces and time. Metaphorically speaking the big balls represent the globe, the net, and the circular communication of the web. As physical object they are a space within a space, it is an offer of a different type of architecture, one that is circular, expendable and infinite. Their meaning is created in the moment when a viewer is interacting with them – walking into and through them, standing within them, watching or even touching them. The installation is about making oneself available to a continual barrage of meanings and themes, so that one is transformed into a being spread, distributed a different configuration of the self.
