You may have had the experience of waking up in a strange place, not realising where you are, or for a short time thinking that you are somewhere quite different? At the Teleportation Paradigm exhibition, everything has been organised for such a spatial confusion to take place – in a monumental light installation based on an experiment that has previously only been carried out on rats.
The work is the result of collaboration between artist Toril Johannessen and neuroscientist Karel Jezek of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience, NTNU, Trondheim. Johannessen has often been involved in interdisciplinary work, working with programmers, engineers, physicists and geologists, but this is the first time she has worked so closely with a scientist. Jezek and Johannessen close in on each other’s disciplines, but they do not try to blur the boundaries by letting the researcher act as an artist or vice versa.
