- Martinka Bobrikova (Slovakia-Norway) & Oscar de Carmen (Spain-Norway)
Their art practice develops around the context of the value of power in the economic and social sphere. Their aim is to investigate the mechanisms of the human unconscious, as an individual belonging to a social group within the limits of capitalism looking at the consequences of the current global financial system. They investigate various sound processes that lead them to develop their practice in sound experimentation as a resource for the realization of sound installations, live performance, interventions, and objects. Their field of work
