The IVAM Produces

Meeting with Moisés Mañas


The IVAM has incorporated a new line of artistic activity focusing on specific proposals by various artists which reinforce the museum’s programme of exhibitions by activating areas that have been considered merely functional. One of the frameworks for these interventions of The IVAM Produces is the museum’s facade, which will offer a series of large images conceived and created specifically to reflect on the role of art in our society.


The artist and interactive designer Moisés Mañas (Elda, 1973) is presenting the installation Parlamento1#·. Un comportamiento irracional entorno a una estructura de entretenimiento. (Parliament #1. Irrational behaviour around an entertainment structure) in the area leading to the IVAMlab. In view of the particular nature of the location, a place with natural lighting that people pass through, the installation that is being presented is based on a physical audiovisual structure that during the coming months will grow and vary both in shape and size and in terms of the quantity of information displayed and collected from the environment in which it is located. The assemblage will build itself by means of software connected to a mobile structure that will use a series of algorithms and be fed by the light in the location and by the flows and presences of users and will gradually produce and create this entertainment “structure creature” and it will evolve and maintain itself to generate information and distract itself.
