Rolling Bridge
Le rolling bridge à la particularité de s’enrouler sur lui-même pour concilier à la fois la navigation fluviale du bassin Paddington et la sortie du magasin Marks & Spencer. L’objectif était de faire du mouvement, l’aspect extraordinaire du pont. Un pont roulant qui s’ouvre lentement et en douceur jusqu’à ce qu’il se transforme d’un pont droit classique, en une sculpture circulaire qui se trouve sur la rive du canal.

Vangelis

Vangelis - COSMOS

COSMOS
Cosmos is a collection of Vangelis’ early-’70s space music. It is pure and graceful with no frills. Vangelis has an aggressive style on the synth, and these compositions are pure Berlin-school electronica, with cosmic and dynamic atmospheres. This will appeal to fans of Ron Boots, Klaus Schulze, Edgar Froese, and Ian Boddy.

Vangelis

Vangelis - Blade Runner

Blade Runner
Vangelis’ soundtrack for Blade Runner remains one of the relatively few soundtracks to establish an enduring reputation as fine music in its own right. Vangelis, by mid-1981 when he was first invited to view a rough cut of footage from Blade Runner, was at the peak of his fame as a solo artist, following a half-decade long run of successful albums[…] Vangelis cleverly chose to adopt the film’s aesthetic as his own. The film wielded futuristic sci-fi to film noir detective drama and action, owing much to psychological thrillers or horror. The most obviously jarring example of how Vangelis simulated this approach was his commissioning of the ragtime jazz song ‘One More Kiss’, which he positioned at the very centre of his album of cutting edge electronica.

Stefan Wewerka

Class room chair
Polyfunctionality and deconstruction of everyday objects, irony and humour as weapons and moments of profound insight: these are some of the ideas behind the works by the architect, designer, sculptor and film-maker, Stefan Wewerka (born in 1928, in Magdeburg).
In his works, Wewerka pushes against conventional concepts relating to art and aesthetics, rationalism and functionalism. As a result for instance, the Last Supper is turned into a weird affair, the kitchen space turned into a kitchen tree. Wewerka’s unmistakable trademark is the manipulation of chairs. Sawn, hacked and bent out of shape, these chairs subversively thwart previously unquestioned concepts relating to furniture. In stark contrast to this, however, are his sculptural furniture designs, adapted to suit the requirements of the human body and its habits.

Designed to interact with the environment in which they are situated, Nathaniel Rackowe’s large scale architectural structures are built using light, kinetic elements and common industrial materials. Drawing on Minimalism’s attention to the relationship between viewer, object, and space, and fusing the structural codes and material outcomes of Modernism, Nathaniel’s works transports the viewer from passive observer to participant, exposing the otherwise unseen dimensions of visual and temporal spaces.

Lina Ghotmeh Light in Water Installation

Light in Water Installation
‘Light in Water’ is a site-specific installation intended to provide an immersive and emotional experience. It was previously presented at Milan Design Week 2011. The installation took advantage of the uniaue status of the venue – one of the oldest concrete domes in Paris. The installation was thus adapted to the circular form of the space, defining the inner sanctuary as a ‘place to be’ and an outer area as a space for a bystander. There are sixteen rings of slotted tubes on the ceiling. From each hole, 60 drops of water fall every minute; in total 3 tons of water circulate in the space. The LED lights vibrate between on and off, with frequencies ranging from the shortest interval possible, at 7μs, allowing the viewer to materialise a point of light in water, up to 6000μs, where light becomes the line of water.

His work is defined in sculptures, installations, drawings and music, but most of the time it‘s a symbiosis of these elements. His artistic practice is based on the creation of compositions with a specific acoustic and physical interaction, where form and sound coexist. The playful, unpredictable aspects of this interaction has his main interest. The specific qualities of music like tone, dynamics, rhythm, timbre and its swiftly immateriality create the poetic counterpart of the physical and visual.

Il fotografo francese Charles Pétillon ha creato una serie dal titolo Invasion, un progetto che ricorda in parte l’idea di The RedBall Project dell’artista Kurt Perschke o le Balloon Sculptures di Hans Hemmert. Centinai di palloncini bianchi straripano da spazi architettonici, quartieri e paesaggi naturali. Ogni foto diventa una metafora, una sensazione, o un’evoluzione dell’universo urbano. Gli scatti mirano a cambiare la nostra percezione del paesaggio che incontriamo tutti i giorni, trasformano un luogo comune in uno spazio inconsueto e straniante che ci spinge a osservare il quotidiano con occhi diversi.

Light, shape variations and mimicry meet in Living Pod. In front of the false twin pieces, the user can slowly set garment A in motion using a light source. Garment B then imitates piece A in an exaggerated and unbalanced fashion, changing structure through miniature electric motors activated by light sensors that are sown through the garment. Using flat-pattern cutting techniques, Ying Gao was able to give the process fluidity and flexibility. In addition to the mechanical movements of the garments, Living Pods underlines two fundamental aspects of today’s fashion system: confrontation and imitation. The garment plays a mediating role between man and his environment. By using light, Living Pod is similar to project Walking City, which uses air to make the pieces look like they are breathing.

The Contemporary Art Center in Córdoba is not a centralized building: the center moves from one space to another, it is everywhere. It is configured as a sequence of precincts linked to a public space, onto which all the different functions of the building flow. Conceived as a place for interaction, it is a common space in which one can express and exchange ideas, see an installation, access exhibitions, visit the cafeteria, spend time in the media library, wait for a performance to begin in the black box, or maybe simply look out onto the Guadalquivir River. The materials help to achieve the art factory character pervading the entire project. In the interior, bare walls, slabs of concrete, and continuous paved flooring establish a spatial structure susceptible to being transformed individually through different interventions. A network of electric, digital, audiovisual, and lighting infrastructures ease access to sockets and connections throughout the building. On the exterior, the building asserts its presence by means of a single material: prefabricated concrete fiberglass panels, or GRC.

6&7
Tao Ye rejects any attempts to harness his work to narrative, which is why he numbers his choreographies rather than naming them. Numbers 6 and 7 were choreographed one after the other, but are presented here as a single work. 6 takes us into a dark world: six black-clad dancers emerge out of a foggy landscape resembling smog-choked Beijing. They start moving with one ‘voice’, treading the ground firmly and dancing—chiefly with the upper part of their bodies—a ritualistic dance which stretches the human body to the very limits of its flexibility. An equally minimalist soundtrack and the exceptional lighting design of Sweden’s Ellen Ruge, a close collaborator of Mats Ek, who has done a lot of high-profile work here in Greece, complete the raw materials of this performance-experience.

Both 6 & 7 will be accompanied by specially commissioned music from Chinese indie folk composer Xiao He.

And yet he is already a worldwide festival favourite and distinctive to boot, in spite of – or perhaps because of – his deliberately limited means. From 2012, 4 restricted itself to four dancers moving in unison and in a tight cohort within the square of the stage. The dancers’ faces were blacked out, their gaze down, their spines never succumbing to the easy beauty of uprightness, and their voluminous costumes, full of folds and creases, were identical.

Woman with veil
Seguendo un filone che sta andando molto di moda di questi tempi, la fotografa americana Melissa Zexter utilizza il ricamo, un’antichissima forma d’arte, rivista attraverso una chiave moderna: la fotografia. Affascinata dal contrasto tra la lentezza quasi meditativa del cucito e l’immediatezza tecnologica della fotografia, Zexter utilizza fotografie originali scattate da lei stessa, alterando irreversibilmente l’immagine e aggiungendo una nuova dimensione fatta di ricami intricati e coloratissimi. Nascono cosi’ opere delicatamente strutturate che comunicano allo stesso tempo frammentazione e concentrazione focalizzata.
