zona mista, 'parabolic facility' - zona mista, london, 2019


Zona Mista Parabolic Facility

In the coastal region of Levanxo, life is lived particularly. The couple of settlements along the shore have happened in a way where life never really became identifiable as such, where it is difficult to trace what came first, or to identify the causes through the remaining clues of any form of fossilized information.

Due to a huge and historic logistical misunderstanding, all the power for the area is supplied from one tidal energy plant off the coast. People know about this facility and feel for it but are happy to have not been.

The towns are only fully electrified when the tide is moving at its most powerful, which occurs twice a day, this pattern breaks down everyday, as tide times vary depending on moon times, differences in yearly periodical heat,  spring times (and during spring tides exponentially too) , and it is still not fully understood what is happening when, but things work.

Tides coming in and out of the harbours in the coastal villages help produce enough energy to run all of the bars, clubs, charge appliances, vehicles, etc for however many hours - as this varies with the coming in of tourists/visitors/friends of those who live on the island.

During the day there is enough latent energy in the system for tasks of minor electrical consumption, charging phones, but for equipment of high energy consumption, there are two allocated windows per day, when the tide is in full flow, and these last roughly about three hours each. It is in these continually propelling-in-calendar daily events where people take advantage to carry out the most intense activities like listening to music really loud, gathering in large numbers to watch films, using washing machines, activating rotisserie apparatuses to cook, pumping water back up to the water tanks that feed the fountains, celebrating and illuminating large infrastructures if needed - like the main parks or squares if it is night time and there is a need to carry out the various unimaginable activities. 

Whenever there is a change of tide, all the peoples make their way to wherever they are working - as they constantly work on different projects - and when they are satisfied with the time’s work, they go back to have food at the local restaurants/bars/home, to later make use of the last energy left that the tides produced, normally in shared leisure. Then they might go back to sleep or continue with whatever it is that they want to do if there is enough daylight to do so. 

These activities shift in phases, as the tide moves across the schedule in different steps throughout time . Nothing is really settled in Levanxo, there are roots but they get wet very often - they are more accustomed to be water dwelling. Peoples in Levanxo are happy, but they describe it differently. We have never been in Levanxo, but our friends Laura and Sofia told us about this.

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

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
