MMKamp’13 – Zadar

Zadar was first city to visit with Mobile Art Dome – mobile multimedia social sculpture – a participatory and collaborative community meeting point. Event was natural MMKamp prolongation – residency event with strong flux of local community.


MAD was installed with help of local partner organization Zadar Snova in only 3 and something hours. Solar panel was installed for the electricity.

MAD is hosting local initiative for goods exchange – Uzmi ili ostavi, where stuff not used can be exchanged for something else – from clothes, bags, shoes to books, etc.

MAD hosted Free Travelling Radio program occasionally happening with experimental shows, astrology readings, open mic and non conventional music.


Different workshops were held at MAD – felt hand-craft, optimizing in social networking, etc. Also, interactive fiction strategy textual games were played in a group – a unique socially engaging program.

Evenings were occupied by yoga, Tibetan bowls sounds and DJmusic.



Free Travelling Radio participants created piece in Croatian named Fractal Consciousness. Using knowledge about fractals and text of 19th article of UN declaration on human Rights, mixed with fractal music, this piece is a true experimental work for radio.

Reni Hofmuller field recording

Same as last year, MMKamp’11 was done in collaboration with TIK project, but this time in small city of Marija Bistrica, surrounded by  north Croatian small hills. MMKamp/TIK had two parts: workshop focusing on “sound-walk” and Eco Time Conference questioning relations between time, ecology and new media arts held between 16th and 21st May, 2011.

Sound walk workshop was held by Jonathan Prior from Edinburgh. His work on ecology of sound together with sound walks ( were presented, and ear cleaning exercise conducted.

Jonathan Prior leading sound walk workshop

Ear cleaning exercise helped students to understand the complexity of sounds around us and recognizing sounds that we usually filter out. This was useful in Oršic castle museum where sound walk recording took place.

Matija Gubec, the peasant king, sculpture near museum

Museum’s focus was on peasant upraising till ’90s in 20th century. Since, it’s orientation has shifted towards landlords living style and Croatian national uprising and its cultural phenomenon. Change of focus from symbols of socialist times  to pancapitalism was interesting starting point for sound research.

Peasant upraising depicted

Recording varied from narrative parts to abstract sounds, sometimes edited in song patterns, with hollow and surrealist touch. End peace was recorded, conceptualized and edited by: Ana Vuždarić, Reni Hofmuller, Barbara Huber, Mimoza Vuthaj, Sonja Fureš, Michal Curdny, Martina Kederova, Jonathan Prior and Kruno Jošt.

Barbara Huber recording sounds of wind around the sculpture

Method, or strategy, was devised to join individual audio pieces in group work. Sounds were mapped on castle, and small groups were choosing their favourite spot. Sound cloud was created and each group had to form their experiance with thir own, but also recordings done by others.

Sound mapping

Draft was edited by Kruno Jost and Jonathan Prior and finalized edit done by Reni Hofmuller. Enjoy sound piece, and have a look at photolog >>

Recording from Patty Diphusa, Confessions of a porn star

Patty DiphusaPatty Diphusa, Confessions of a Porn Star is cabaret created from series of stories written by Pedro Almodóvar which were in sequels published in Madrid’s magazine La Luna, in (during) the eighties. Those stories are from the edge of urban life, rude stories which glorifies everything (all) human: sex, pleasure, violence, love, romantic, wishes. Patty is a girl from dreams, full of life, who never sleeps, projection of spectator’s desires, writer’s alter-ego.

Lada Petrovski

On August 10th a contemporary dance performance ‘Sjedi 1’ (Sit down 1 – a term used in school when pupil doesn’t satisfy teachers question) was held in Providurs palace in the middle of Zadar. We bring you audio from the show and an interview with dancer Lada Petrovski.

‘When good is not good enough… The effort of perfectionist women is often not recognized enough… Love isn’t beloved enough… Saying only ‘I feel dizzy’ isn’t enough….
Educators are not in a bad enough situation…. When body is never slim enough…

Supporting our team is barely enough, isn’t it? … He is not smart enough to comprehend… Sometimes perfection is simply not enough… Altering only ours isn’t enough… Saying no, is not enough… Praying and waiting is not enough… Being aware is also not enough… Being natural is not good enough for the stage… In this collage we once again dig through that old dilemma about what is enough or is not enough for interacting with an audience and what old patterns we keep slipping upon while presenting ourselves / performers / authors to others. Concept of a solo act seemed perfect for this research. Vulnerability in disclosing of a performer as a common person, normal and with all his flaws certainly provides taste to a dish like this. It also reveals that ‘not enough’ is merely something our mind has created along with expectations that we bring into any play of life. We shall test our boundaries of –being not enough–, as we hope we may simply –be-‘ (Text from
