SOLAR GIMMICKS by Joe Highton
The car dashboard solar-surfer is to solar energy,
like the static-electric levitation illusionist is to electricity,
like the shadow puppet is to fire.

gimmick as the disintegration of suspicion surrounding something new, via small gestures that use these new routes that may initially be intimidating or overlooked, to enter collective subconsciousness.



tethers used to hold curve of curved movement (compass for parabola or ratchet strap on roof)



solar tracking
heliotropism
diy solar tracker (based on parker space probe)
solar dancer, shadow puppeteer

solar concentration / focal point
many focal points at once
parabolic mirror array .. multiple dishes focusing on one point.. or multi hob =  more complex meals

open forms letting through light, like the purple plankton did for the green



They exist as banners or directions / directors to areas of interest ,, highlighters (radio wave energy ) .. making visible movements maybe not so obvious , leaning towards more dimensions , knowing and feeling there being more than you ,, slow time

as placeholders , detritus of activity
facilitating activity .. activity led production / stimulus
leaving perforated edges
perennial












Rover.live
Via Roma 206, Palermo
October 2018

Rover welcomes the people in Palermo, temporary visitors, and the world wide web to its flexible facility on Via Roma 206.

Rover is a particular recycling + broadcast plant (rampicante) that tries to understand matter (acting as a decomposer), and how to process it altogether.

It incorporates various activities and is in celebration of fully tangled conglomerate outputs, which occupy a multitude of different dispersal / communication techniques, including.. film making, film screenings, paper / poster making, filtration systems, live broadcasts, music events, maquettes to model forecasting and currents, loose scripts for theatre, solar radio systems. For Manifesta in Palermo, the project takes ideas from waste management chains that process matter, to figure out different communication tools (and the loss that occurs in the widest sense of translation) that will question what is waste itself.

Rover.live has two workshops operating simultaneously at Via Roma 206.

Upstairs is a recycling plant focused on making posters. The posters are made from a pulp of blended paper, left-over from different organisations now based in Palermo: cards, wraps and all kinds of printed information (that might inform about the current concurrences in town) are added to the mix, along with discards/detritus found around the streets and squares, small solar powered radio systems (opening FM wavelengths in fluctuation with sunlight) and germinating seeds. These communications tangle in the pulp pool to create inadvertent archives of activity both internal and external to the facility. Various parameters recreate air and underwater currents, and other alterations in flow and direction. Filtration systems operate in tangent with this pool, and various sieves are used to produce the paper. They are distributed to public spaces across the city and disseminated online, to announce the facility's activity, a continuous open call, and a conglomerate of surrounding events and organisations.

Downstairs is a cinema which hosts film screenings in the form of a perennial moving image playlist, in accumulation throughout our time here. A permanently open - open call - initially stemming from artists and filmmakers in Palermo, Barcelona, London, and announced via various communication methods, including the posters, invites participation. The cinema will celebrate it’s existence every Sunday (MOSTRA) at 20.00 with presentations of particular films, with the idea of fostering further exchange and in appreciation of the difference of things occupying space together.

The intention of these activities is to gather a group of people interested in developing a series of filming events in response to the current climate in Palermo. Rover.live is a platform that processes, edits and broadcasts live links simultaneously and is looking for collaborators to exchange impressions while making films using the available media in Palermo.

To get involved, or for any questions about the project, please send to join@rover.live , or visit us at Via Roma 206
