HSE Garden Pavilion

HSE ART AND DESIGN SCHOOL (RU)

HSE Garden Pavilion is a platform that presents a 3D game, sound performance and an animated short film program. It’s dedicated to the issues of modern environments, both online and offline. HSE Garden Pavilion was created by students and curators of the HSE Art and Design School, which is the part of HSE University, one of the leading Russian universities.

HSE Garden Pavilion

The HSE Garden Pavilion comprises 3 separate areas, curated by three departments of the HSE Art and Design School, such as Animation, Sound Art & Sound Design, and Modern Art.

It all begins with Get Out, a 3D game designed by Elena Vlasova, BA student. The world of “Get out” happily welcomes us at its gates, promising a journey through a positive almost utopian space. However, as we interact with its inhabitants, the story line changes. In the world of “Get Out”, nature refuses to be vulnerable and actively defends itself with a surrealistic mix of objects of nature and Internet artifacts.

The experience at the HSE Garden Pavilion continues with a Non-Player Piano sound performance, created by the Sound Art & Sound Design department in collaboration with Mubert AI App. Non-Player Piano was created specifically for Ars Electronica Festival 2020. The performance will be performed on Moscow River and include live music improvisations aided by an artificial neural network “trained” to analyze the surrounding environment, such as the weather, time of day, location, speed, and type of movement.

HSE Animation department displays the work of young female directors: Varvara Fomicheva, Daria Ivanova, Nastya Panina, Maria Maximova, Elena Charobay.
This part of the pavilion flourishes in diversity: from a remake of a classic Russian fairytale in a setting of an environmental catastrophe to an intimate story about a mysterious digital garden.
