WiFi Impressionist
Wifi Impressionist ist eine Feldinstallation, die elektromagnetische Landschaften zeichnet, die von den Stadtlandschaften von William Turner inspiriert sind. Die Arbeit besteht aus einer Richtantenne auf einem Schwenk-Neigungs-Mechanismus, der auf WiFi-Signale wartet und ein dreidimensionales Modell der umgebenden Signale erstellt. Aus diesem Modell wird ein Ansichtsfenster ausgewählt, das die Perspektive und den Rahmen definiert. Signale, die innerhalb des Rahmens aufgenommen werden, werden als Wellen dargestellt, die von einem bestimmten Ursprung ausgesendet und mit einem mobilen Plotter gezeichnet werden. Die Antenne und der Plotter sind beide auf einem Stativ montiert und können auf dem Feld platziert werden, so wie ein Maler seine Staffelei aufstellen würde. Sobald eine Zeichnung positioniert und ausgerichtet ist, wird sie mit der Zeit dichter, abhängig von der Dichte der Netzwerke um sie herum. Überall dort, wo ein WiFi-Signal vorhanden ist, füllt die Zeichnung schließlich den Rahmen.

Constant wrapping of pillars with a transparent adhesive tape results in a complex, amorphous surface through the process reminiscent of growing of organic forms. One line evolves into surface that forms an organic shape of extraordinary strength. The entrance of the audience inside the volume transforms the sculpture into architecture. It was practically “found” through the act of chaotic wrapping, where a one-dimensional line (“tape”) slowly turned into two-dimensional plane, which then finally curved into volume.

Having studied as an architect, Tomas Saraceno incorporates physics, engineering, and aeronautics into his interactive and evolving artistic structures. Using arachnology, or the study of spiders, to create structures that suggest alternative ways of living, he employs tridimensional webs to better understand how unique building blocks create distinct forms. Saraceno places spiders in cubic frames and leaves them to spin webs, rotating the cubes at various intervals to introduce elements of freedom

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.

HYPER FRACTAL

When I was a child I had some vivid dreams. They felt like I was falling and flying into an infinite multi-dimensional environment. They were satisfying and terrifying at the same time but I couldn’t find any explanation for them. 6 years ago I read about Benoit Mandelbrot’s theory, the fractals, and it changed my perspective. I realized that my dreams were fractals. So I tried to remake my dreams as a visual VR experience. According to Benoit Mandelbrot’s theory, Fractals are the mathematical\visual explanation of the nature’s structural geometry. Geometry for irregularity.

Der niederländische Künstler Mike Pelletier ist ein interaktiver Experte und digitaler Künstler. Er experimentiert mit neuen Möglichkeiten zur Verwendung von Microsoft Kinect und verwendet das Tool als 3D-Scanner. Dabei nutzt er die Ressourcen der Kamera, um unglaubliche mehrdimensionale Porträts zu erstellen. Durch Bewegen der Kinect-Kamera um das Objekt aktualisiert die Software die Daten ständig, um ein 3D-Modell zu erstellen. Nach einigen Minuten der Verfolgung kann ein sehr detailliertes Modell einer Person erhalten werden. „Mein Ziel war es, eine Skulptur zu schaffen, die ohne digitale Technologien nicht existieren könnte“, sagt der Künstler. Die Bilder werden auf Metallpapier gedruckt und hinter Plexiglas-Acryl montiert.

The Last Supper Alive
File Festival
A six minute video installation that brings to life the famous late 16th century work by Leonardo Da Vinci. The slight movements of the figures enhance the choral nature of the Last Supper, with a very measured and meticulous direction that overcomes the fixity of the painting adorning the wall of the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, bringing it back to life and providing it with a new spatial context.

Vitreous
The nine virtual sculptures underlying vitreous resulted from experimental setups by Robert Seidel for generating three-dimensional clusters of fibrous refractions, as well as the gravitational lensing of different volumetric and chromatic densities. Singular elements gravitate towards each other, accumulating in a gigantic sculptural system, where each entity exists with its own visual axis and vanishing point. The impalpable luminous formations create prismatic interactions between the ridges and plateaux of the main colours floating in front of the infinite violet background.

Datum

Any pixel in a digital movie file can be described as a point in 6-dimensional Euclidean space [x,y,R,G,B,t]. the rotations in 6-dimensioal space converts curve in form to gradation in colour, colour to motion in time axis, motion to curve and curve to colour. relations beween all of pixels are mathematically conserved through the conversion.
this visual object is “mathematically” digital colour movie data itself as sequence of numbers. it’s a nature of data.

Tom Na H-Iu

Tom Na H-iu is a three-dimensional glass work almost 3 meters in height. It is networked to the Super Kamiokande neutrino observatory operated by the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research, University of Tokyo, enabling it to interact and respond when the observatory captures a neutrino. On detecting a neutrino, such as those emitted by stars in our galaxy as they die in supernova explosions[…] Tom Na H-iu represents a modern standing stone that conveys the death of a star, meanwhile hinting at the birth that follows – as if to suggest to the viewer that our existence is in resonance with the universe. When we view this work that emits peaceful light amidst darkness, we can project ourselves into the darkness and gain a sense that we are standing quietly in the flow of eternal time.

our time

Our Time (2016) is the latest large-scale installation by United Visual Artists investigating our subjective experience of the passing of time. How long is a moment? At what rate does time actually pass? The work joins a series of kinetic sculptures that began with Momentum (2013); an installation designed as a ‘spatial instrument’ that was to reveal the relationship between expectation and perception when intersected with a physical space.
Our Time defines a physical environment where pendulums swing at a pace apparently unhindered by the laws of nature and where no single time measurement applies. The installation combines movement, light and sound as a multi-sensory, multi-dimensional canvas the visitor can enter. Pendulums swing, each to their own rhythm, as time flows through the grid. With light tracing the path and sound its echo, the passing of time becomes almost palpable.

REBECCA WARD

APPARITION
Materiality and process are central to Rebecca Ward’s practice and evoke “architectural garments” ripped, unwoven, and re-stitched from fleshtoned canvas duck, leather hide, and silk organza. In her canvas works, the artist removes the weft (horizontal) threads of the fabric to reveal the underlying stretcher bars, highlighting the physical structure of the painting itself. Ward’s artworks reveal and obscure, and by their nature, entice viewers to closely investigate contrasts in line and material, modulations in color, and multi-dimensional layers.

The Source
The Source, an eight storey high kinetic sculpture, is the new symbol for the London Stock Exchange. Every morning, millions of viewers around the world will watch the installation come to life, signifying the opening of the London Markets.
“The Source is formed from a grid of cables arranged in a square, 162 cables in all, reaching eight stories to the glass roof. Nine spheres are mounted on each cable and are free to move independently up and down its length. In essence the spheres act like animated pixels, able to model any shape in three dimensions a fluid, dynamic, three dimensional television.Visitors to the atrium are greeted by this motion: its particles rising and falling, generating an infinite range of figurative and abstract shapes that rise, dissolve and reform at different heights in the atrium. The shape of the sun rising on a new day of trade, the names and positions of currently traded stocks, the DNA helix at the center of life formed by the work, and floating in the 32m void of the atrium.”

Francisco Larios es un artista multidisciplinario (México, 1960) cuyo trabajo despuntó en la década de los noventa. Larios ha practicado la pintura, el dibujo de concepto abierto, el uso de “software” para crear entornos visuales bidimensionales y tridimensionales. En su imaginario se cumple la condición postmoderna, en la que la cultura contemporánea es el punto de arranque para la elaboración de escenas que manifiestan un retorno a referentes sacros, temáticas filosóficas y fabulaciones inmemoriales.

John McCracken (1934-2011) developed his early sculptural work while studying painting at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland in the late 1950s and early 1960s. While experimenting with increasingly three-dimensional canvases, the artist began to produce objects made with industrial materials, including plywood, sprayed lacquer, and pigmented resin, creating the highly reflective, smooth surfaces that he was to become known for.

Luzes Relacionais
File Festival
“Luzes Relacionais” (Relational Lights) é uma instalação interativa audiovisual que explora a relação das pessoas com o caráter orgânico-expressivo do “espaço”. A instalação usa luz, som, neblina e um sistema de software customizado para criar um espaço-luz tridimensional de morphing (metamorfose), em que os espectadores participam ativamente, manipulando-o com sua presença e seus movimentos[…] A obra funciona como um organismo vivo, com ou sem a presença e a interação dos espectadores. Quando os espectadores saem da área de rastreamento ativo, o sistema começa seu próprio diálogo com o espaço através de extrusão e transformação de sequências de formas geométricas luminosas. Quando os espectadores penetram e interagem com o espaço-luz projetado, uma expressão coletiva e participativa do espaço se desdobra. “Luzes Relacionais” amplia o tecido tridimensional do espaço, tornando-o visível, audível e tangível aos participantes.

POUL GERNES

Drømmeskib / Dream Ship
n the early 1960s, Poul Gernes started to concentrate on simple, reduced forms making strong visual effects like circles, stripes or dots in his painting, similar to pop motivs. Most of the approx. 40 Targets painted then were designs for architecture-related works. At first he drew the rings for his Targets in pencil, but later he went over to scratching them into the ground with a pair of compasses. This gave the paintings a relief-like character and created clearly defined color fields. The contrasting color intensities in the circles make each color seem like a distinct, three-dimensional volume. The vivid color combinations of the Targets (shown at the Venice Biennale in 1988) come from sketches or ready-mades like the stripes on a t-shirt. Sometimes Gernes used random systems as well, for example by putting paint pots behind him and dipping the paintbrush into one pot blind. Although it may not seem to be the case, Gernes’ work makes no passing references to contemporary works by other artists.

Valla behauptete, eine Reihe von 60 “surrealistischen” Bildern gesammelt zu haben, oder die zumindest diesen Eindruck während eines langen “Spielens” in Google Earth erwecken. “Die Bilder sind eine Art Spiegel für ein lustiges Haus. Sie sind es.” seltsame Illusionen und Reflexionen des Realen “Trotz der starken Verzerrungen, die leicht einem surrealistischen Gemälde ähneln, können die Bilder der Arbeit keine Werkzeuge wie beispielsweise Photoshop manipulieren.” Die Bilder sind Screenshots der Erde mit grundlegenden Farbanpassungen. ” “Dies ist eine Konstruktion von 3D-Karten auf zweidimensionaler Basis, die diese fabelhaften und unbeabsichtigten Verzerrungen erzeugt.”
