"Firnament" is the project titel of a global distributed database with huge storage area somewhere in the heart of the Swiss mountains. There data is art. And ice. Like glaciers. Data like eternity.
During the Sofia Symposium we discussed to mirror our sites. http://www.scas.acad.bg/ to http://firn.kunst.ch and http://firn.kunst.ch to http://www.scas.acad.bg/.
"Screenshot" is an intervention and an installation.
Early darfts of this project are dated 1985. With todays availabilty of computing power and video compression technolgies the 1985 drafts are close to realization.
Matjaz Hmeljak discovered there is an interesting similarity between the work published in http://www.kunst.ch/kunst/forschung/htm/konkret.htm and the color structures Edi Zajec developed in the years 79, 80, (and Matjaz Hmeljak implemented on a main frame in pascal in 80). Their work was the beginning of a research Zajec worked on in the 80-ies, the problem of "shaping color structures in time", and eventually resulted in the "orphics" theory (see Leonardo) .. maybe Matjaz will try to put in life again this (Pascal) program ("harmonic progression schemes" was the name, or HARPS); if so, he will send some samples... [the program is still somewhere in his libraries...].
