DARK DISTORTIONS
‘Dark Distortions’ – was inspired by Euclid, a forthcoming ESA mission to study the mysterious nature of dark matter and dark energy, which is due to launch in mid-2022. Dark matter is thought to account for 85% of the matter in the universe. Visible stuff within galaxies – such as stars and planets and dust – has insufficient gravitational pull to prevent galaxies from disintegrating as they rotate. But galaxies don’t fly apart in this way, so astrophysicists proposed that they must contain “dark” matter that has sufficient mass to keep galaxies intact – but which has never been seen directly.

.

ТЕМНЫЕ ИСКАЖЕНИЯ
«Dark Distortions» – был вдохновлен Евклидом, предстоящей миссией ЕКА по изучению загадочной природы темной материи и темной энергии, запуск которой запланирован на середину 2022 года. Считается, что темная материя составляет 85% материи во Вселенной. Видимое вещество внутри галактик – например, звезды, планеты и пыль – обладает недостаточным гравитационным притяжением, чтобы предотвратить распад галактик при их вращении. Но галактики не разлетаются таким образом, поэтому астрофизики предположили, что они должны содержать «темную» материю, обладающую достаточной массой, чтобы сохранить галактики в целости, но которую никогда не видели напрямую.

In „netBody: Augmented Body und Virtual Body II“ verbinden wir die reale Welt mit der Online-Realität von Second Life auf physischer Ebene: Die Körperbewegungen einer Person in der realen Welt steuern einen Avatar in Second Life, während die Bewegungen eines Avatars einen Menschen führen. Ein Second Life-Avatar wird zu einem Mittel, um das Individuum physisch mit der Gesellschaft zu verbinden. Dies könnte es Menschen auf der ganzen Welt mit der richtigen Hardware ermöglichen, sich gegenseitig über das Internet auszutauschen. Wir spielen mit unserer Wahrnehmung des Körpers eines Individuums als seine Identität.

A obra “Robinson” faz parte do corpo de trabalho de Ting-Tong Chang que investiga a história dos autômatos na Europa como meio de explorar visões utópicas. A palavra “autômato” é freqüentemente usada para descrever máquinas que se movem sozinhas, especialmente aquelas que foram feitas para se assemelhar a ações humanas ou animais. Do Pato Digesting de Jacques de Vaucanson (1739) ao Teatro Mecânico de Andreas Jakob Graf Dietrichstein (1752), os autômatos divertiram reis e princesas, ensinaram lições morais aos cidadãos e levantaram questões filosóficas profundas.

Alex Ekman

COW

Ekman talents extend to the lighting and stage design and his eye for structuring an environment is unerring. There is no set as such, excepting the plaster cow which dangles overhead, but the stage surface has its share of movement as little island-blocks rise up and pits sink down. The extreme tilting of the stage at one point causes unfortunate Bauch to roll, cow-like, almost into the pit. COW has its iconic Ekman moment in the scene that opens on a stage full of swirling dancers in white skirts set in a magical silvery mist. Mikael Karlsson, whose music partners the piece provides a subtle and evocative soundscape. He offers a hint of percussive rhythm picked up by the dancers who launch into an ecstatic dance: a stage full of whirling dervishes, until they collapse exhausted.

.

Ekmans Talente erstrecken sich auf die Beleuchtung und das Bühnenbild, und sein Auge für die Strukturierung einer Umgebung ist unfehlbar. Es gibt kein Set als solches, außer der Gipskuh, die über ihnen baumelt, aber die Bühnenoberfläche hat ihren Anteil an Bewegung, wenn kleine Inselblöcke aufsteigen und Gruben sinken. Das extreme Kippen der Bühne an einer Stelle führt dazu, dass der unglückliche Bauch kuhartig fast in die Grube rollt. COW hat seinen legendären Ekman-Moment in der Szene, die auf einer Bühne voller wirbelnder Tänzer in weißen Röcken in einem magischen silbernen Nebel beginnt. Mikael Karlsson, dessen Musikpartner das Stück ist, bietet eine subtile und eindrucksvolle Klanglandschaft. Er bietet einen Hauch von perkussivem Rhythmus, der von den Tänzern aufgenommen wurde, die einen ekstatischen Tanz beginnen: eine Bühne voller wirbelnder Derwische, bis sie erschöpft zusammenbrechen.

 

PETER MOVRIN

“Movrin’s main inspiration has always been his childhood, where tradition, God and meat were the subject of everyday life. As an only son of a butcher in a small Slovenian town, surrounded by woods and bears, his growing up marked him with a roughness that he transcends in his designs with a special kind of romanticism. In this hard provincial life meat became his medium of expression, as a child he would carve steaks in a way that would appeal to his bewildered eye. There were, however, also fresh issues of Vogue magazines in the house, brought from trips to Trieste, that stirred up his imagination.” Black Sheep

Labor
What does labor smell like? Labor is a dynamic, self-regulating art installation that re-creates the scent of people exerting themselves under stressful conditions. There are, however, no people involved in making the smell – it is created by bacteria propagating in the three glass bioreactors. Each bioreactor incubates a unique species of human skin bacteria responsible for the primary scent of sweating bodies: Staphylococcus epidermidis, Corynebacterium xerosis and Propionibacterium avidum. As these bacteria metabolize simple sugars and fats, they create the distinct smells associated with human exertion, stress and anxiety. Their scents combine in the central chamber with which a sweatshop icon, the white t-shirt, is infused as the scents are disseminated. The scent intensifies throughout the exhibition.

The world’s first 3D full-dome movie on the “Theory of Everything”; the ultimate goal of physics to describe all natural phenomena by a single, consistent theory. Physics is in crisis. Our understandings of the microscopic world of elementary particles and of the macroscopic world of the universe are in contradiction. Scientists are striving to resolve the contradictions and construct the Theory of Everything.

From, the Future
The art is about waiting, something the entire world population knows since the onslaught of Covid-19. The title was also inspired by a dream where I told a scientist I was from the future and he believed me. My interpretation of the dream relates to my interest in the luminous thoughts of the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi, he clearly describes what our souls really are, beautiful, sacred, beyond time. I am fascinated by the existential impermanence of beauty. Beauty offers us a deep connection to the experience of life. The animation consists of cut flowers continuously falling from the sky, it can be seen by looking up to the ceiling. The title infers the signature on the note of a gift.

WiFi Impressionist
Wifi Impressionist is a field installation that draws electromagnetic landscapes inspired by the cityscapes of William Turner. The work consists of a directional antenna on a pan-tilt mechanism that listens for WiFi signals and builds a three dimensional model of the signals around it. From this model a viewport is selected that defines the perspective and the frame. Signals that are picked up within the frame are visualised as waves emitted from a specific origin and drawn using a mobile plotter. The antenna and the plotter are both mounted on a tripod and can be placed in the field much like a painter would set up his easel. Once positioned and oriented a drawing becomes denser over time depending on the density of networks around it. Wherever there is a WiFi signal, the drawing will eventually fill the frame.

“Artistas vestidos com uniformes brancos e luvas de manuseio de arte rosa se movem em torno de pedestais de vários tamanhos. Eles gesticulam, imitando os contornos de esculturas – Le-nez de Giacometti (1947), Hang up de Eva Hesse (1966) e Paisagem inconsciente de Louise Bourgeois (1967 -8), entre outros.
Como se fosse um jogo de charadas da história da arte, você se pega adivinhando com o que eles estão manipulando, qual é a superfície e a textura dos objetos. Através dessa performance, a nova relação sensual com essas obras é formada. No entanto, você não pode deixar de fazer a conexão com o comentário sobre a arte de manipular em si – pode o mundo da manipulação de arte, instalação de exposições e, de fato, venda de obras de arte estar se tornando tanto uma arte quanto a própria obra de arte? ” Maisie Skidmore

‘Sunshowers’ is the third in our series of real-time animation artworks. It is inspired by the opening chapter of Akira Kurosawa’s film Dreams which follows a young boy as he explores a forest and stumbles across a fox wedding (Kitsune no Yomeiri). Our piece explores ideas of animism and techno-animism by assigning life in the form of artificial intelligence to all of the objects, both natural and man-made, within the virtual world. The piece unfolds in real time with the characters themselves deciding which paths they will follow.

Gravitatorische Behauptungen
Aus der transdisziplinären Zusammenarbeit ist die Idee einer ephemeren Installation hervorgegangen, der die Linie als Basiselement zugrunde liegt. In einer Live-Performance kann im Laufe der Ausstellung beobachtet werden, wie künstlerische Inspiration und physikalische Kräfte aufeinandertreffen – und Roboter vom Werkzeug zur «(mit)kreierenden» Maschine mutieren. Künstliche Intelligenzen drängen immer stärker in die unterschiedlichsten Bereiche unseres Lebens. Viele Fragen drehen sich dabei um die Menschlichkeit von Robotern. Was passiert, wenn man die Maschine weiterdenken und weiterführen lässt, was der Mensch initiiert hat? Auch in der Kunst ist die Thematik relevant: Wie lassen sich Roboter in die künstlerische Produktion einbeziehen? Wer oder was bestimmt die Form? Wie geht man um mit der Ungewissheit über die eigentliche Autorschaft? Seit deren Anfang ist der Einsatz von Maschinen in den künstlerischen Prozess zwar einbezogen, ihr Anteil daran jedoch immer wieder auch hinterfragt worden.

L’ouverture indicible des choses
Le titre de l’exposition, L’ouverture indicible des choses, est une phrase que le philosophe Timothy Morton utilise pour décrire l’art et qui résonne fortement avec l’artiste. Eliasson décrit comment «l’art existe à la fois dans et au-delà du domaine de la langue. Avant que la forme d’une œuvre n’émerge, il y a un sentiment pas tout à fait saisissable qui pénètre dans le processus artistique – et qui reste dans l’œuvre finie comme quelque chose qui ne peut pas être pleinement exprimé. Dans le même temps, l’œuvre est fondamentalement ouverte aux visiteurs. Il est prêt à les écouter et à accueillir leurs questions et leurs expériences. »

Breed
Breed (1995-2007) is a computer program that uses artificial evolution to grow very detailed sculptures. The purpose of each growth is to generate by cell division from a single cell a detailed form that can be materialised. On the basis of selection and mutation a code is gradually developed that best fulfils this “fitness” criterion and thus yields a workable form. The designs were initially made in plywood. Currently the objects can be made in nylon and in stainless steel by using 3D printing techniques. This automates the whole process from design to execution: the industrial production of unique artefacts.
Computers are powerful machines to harness artificial evolution to create visual images. To achieve this we need to design genetic algorithms and evolutionary programs. Evolutionary programs allow artefacts to be “bred”, rather than designing them by hand. Through a process of mutation and selection, each new generation is increasingly well adapted to the desired “fitness” criteria. Breed is an example of such software that uses Artificial Evolution to generate detailed sculptures. The algorithm that we designed is based on two different processes: cell-division and genetic evolution.

Come molti della mia generazione, sono cresciuto succhiando un tubo a raggi catodici e facendo il bagno nelle onde radio. Tutto questo è rappresentato all’interno del mio lavoro, in un collage di movimento, luce e suono. Attualmente con il mio lavoro sto esplorando modi per dissolvere i confini tra cinematografia e scultura. Le mie recenti ricerche su questo tema hanno coinvolto l’uso di computer combinato con elementi meccanici per creare installazioni simili a mandala. Queste installazioni sono il mio mezzo e le uso per creare animazioni effimere. Questa effimera coreografia di movimento è il punto focale del mio lavoro. Credo che questo fascino per le immagini in movimento e la trasformazione degli oggetti derivi dalla mia giovinezza, dove i primi computer domestici degli anni ’80 mi hanno dato uno sguardo nel meraviglioso mondo della matematica applicata. Su questi computer è stato possibile con codici semplici generare fantastici schemi e suoni astratti e quell’incontro ha distrutto per sempre il confine nella mia mente tra astratto e reale. Anche la danza gioca un ruolo significativo nel mio lavoro; Sono stato attratto dalla musica elettronica. L’electro con il suo suono sintetizzato mi ha introdotto alla break-dance e la mia anima è stata catturata dalla bellezza del movimento fisico coreografato.

‘Time is a Dimension’

The beauty of photography, in its essence, is conveyed by capturing a moment in time and freezing it out of its context. Singapore-based photographer Fong Qi Wei, however, uses photography to show the passage of time. In his time lapse series called ‘Time is a Dimension’, Fong doesn’t use a typical long exposure trick. He captures the passing time by layering different photos of the same spot with clear edge lines of each frame. Each collage is digitally cut and created from pictures Fong takes within 2 to to 4 hours. Fong usually works at sunrise or sunset, as the light and color palettes are most varied at those times.
“The basic structure of a landscape is present in every piece. But each panel or concentric layer shows a different slice of time, which is related to the adjacent panel/layer. The transition from daytime to night is gradual and noticeable in every piece, but would not be something you expect to see in a still image. Similarly, our experience of a scene is more than a snapshot,” explains Fong.

Preoccupied with collective memory, mortality, and the passage of time, Christian Boltanski creates paintings, sculptures, films, and mixed-media installations that approach these themes in a range of styles, symbolic to direct. Boltanski often makes metaphorical use of found objects, as in No Man’s Land (2010), an enormous pile of discarded jackets set to the soundtrack of thousands of human heartbeats, suggesting the anonymity, randomness, and inevitability of death. In Monuments (1985), electrical bulbs cast a seemingly bittersweet light on pictures of child holocaust victims. Describing his interest in personal histories, Boltanski has said, “What drives me as an artist is that I think everyone is unique, yet everyone disappears so quickly. […] We hate to see the dead, yet we love them, we appreciate them.”

Installazione della nebbia
Un’installazione progettata da Clap per Minsk, in Bielorussia, realizzata da volontari della città stessa. Per il concept di questa installazione Clap parte dalla storia di Minsk, città che durante la seconda guerra mondiale è stata devastata. Le bombe distrussero l’80% degli edifici e la città non fu ricostruita fino agli anni ’50. Ecco perché la popolazione di questa città ricorda questi tempi come qualcosa di spiacevole e molti di loro preferiscono non parlarne. Lo studio di progettazione parte da un volume geometrico che rappresenta in modo concettuale il volume di un edificio. Immaginano che le bombe cadano su di lui distruggendolo, generando nuove aperture e volumi nuovi di zecca. Queste nuove aperture risultano ingegnosamente in un ingresso e un belvedere in alto. La distruzione lascia il posto alla funzione genera tribune, scale e sedili. Dall’interno, la vita si fa strada sotto forma di albero, superando l’altezza dell’installazione stessa.
