Bartaku, °1996 (Jap) – [Bart Vandeput, °1970 (Be)]
Lives & works frequently in the urban realm > 50.845N – 04.35E
PA* Artist/Researcher – MA Communication Sciences – PA* Drumming
Bartaku’s works emerge through the interweaving of different media, methods and technologies with a fascination for scientific tropes and ‘hyper-winded’ systems, patterns, structures of man and matter. It echoes former praxis as a drummer, academic and aimless wanderer, esp. in the Andean Worlds. In 2007 -with the support of interdisciplinary lab FoAM- Bartaku started the research project “PhoEf: The Undisclosed Poésis of the Photovoltaic Effect”. At the interstices of arts, science, technology and ecology, it explores the micro and macro realms of Photovoltaics: the conversion of light into electrical energy. Since 2008 PhoEf fuses lectures, workshops and micro-interventions.
