Biomatrix
«Biomatrix» est une installation d’extrémités scycles de bulles de cellules éruptives émergeant à la surface de l’huile de silicone liquide. Cette circulation du liquide coloré évoque le comportement du magma ou du sang et, en raison de la viscosité élevée de l’huile de silicium, illustre le mouvement du matériau à une vitesse faussement plus lente que l’attente du spectateur. La piscine à commande électrique devient une interface qui amplifie l’impact visuel et produit à l’infini des motifs cellulaires. Une formation de grille ordonnée apparaît comme une matrice numérique, tandis qu’une observation plus approfondie révèle des irrégularités telles qu’une effervescence sporadique et simultanée et des sons plosifs brisant la tension superficielle.

INFINITY III
Infinity III est une invitation à un voyage mental perturbant créé à partir d’images de synthèses. Dans la continuité de son travail autour des cycles naturels (avec la série d’installations « Infinity »), HeeWon Lee nous projette au coeur de nuées d’oiseaux lumineuses et évanescentes… En évoluant dans ce ballet animal, la notion de temporalité et d’espace s’effacent.

Underwater Pavilions
Underwater Pavilions is artist Doug Aitken’s large-scale installation produced by Parley for the Oceans and presented in partnership with The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). The work consists of three temporary underwater sculptures, floating beneath the ocean’s surface that swimmers, snorkelers, and scuba divers swim through and experience. Geometric in design, the sculptures create underwater spaces synthesizing art and science as they are constructed with carefully researched materials and will be moored to the ocean floor. Part of each structure is mirrored to reflect the underwater seascape and create a kaleidoscopic observatory for the viewer, while other surfaces are rough and rock-like. The environments created by the sculptures will constantly change with the currents and the time of day, focusing the attention of the viewer on the rhythm of the ocean and its life cycles.

Spectrum
How intensely can you experience colour? Colour as a phenomenon which you don’t just see, but which totally absorbs… Spectrum is a spatial installation that makes colour tactile and tangible.
Fall backwards into a black hole and reawaken in an infinite spectrum. An immersive experience which will give you a whole new perspective on the coloured cycles of our everyday light. Following Blaas and Curve, Spectrum completes a triptych centred on white space, each piece created with spatial designer Cocky Eek in collabaration with Schweigman&. In Blaas you crawl through an inflatable balloon; in Curve you enter an endlessly spiralling tunnel. Spectrum starts by asking: how can we make the colour physically tangible?

Listening Post

Listening Post is an art installation by Mark Hansen and Ben Rubin that culls text fragments in real time from thousands of unrestricted Internet chat rooms, bulletin boards and other public forums. The texts are read (or sung) by a voice synthesizer, and simultaneously displayed across a suspended grid of more than two hundred small electronic screens.Listening Post cycles through a series of six movements, each a different arrangement of visual, aural, and musical elements, each with it’s own data processing logic.Dissociating the communication from its conventional on-screen presence, Listening Post is a visual and sonic response to the content, magnitude, and immediacy of virtual communication.

Colourfield
Colourfield is an evolutionary ecosystem of colour. Colour agents try to exist in a simple universe by producing colours that are suited to their environment. This environment is determined by the other agents and the colours they produce. Entering into complex feedback cycles, Colourfield presents an evolving palette of shifting colours. Different configurations emerge based on the strategies the ecosystem discovers for co-existance and co-dependency. Harmonious configurations often remain stable for a short while, before eventually being replaced by new relations, better able to survive in the ever shifting environment.

Biomatrix
“Biomatrix” is an installation of endles scycles of eruptive cell bubbles emerging on the surface of liquid silicone oil. This circulation of the colored liquid evokes the behaviour of magma or blood, and due to the high viscosity of silicon oil, illustrates the movement of the material at a speed deceptively slower than the viewer’s expectation. The electrically controlled pool becomes an interface that amplifies visual impact, and infinitely produces cell patterns. An orderly grid formation appears as a digital matrix, while closer observation reveals irregularities such as sporadic and simultaneous effervescence and plosive sounds breaking the surface tension.

The Farmhouse

Our Farmhouse runs on an organic life-cycle of by products inside the building, where one processes output is another processes input: Buildings create already a large amount of heat, which can be reused for plants like potatoes, nuts or beans to grow. A water-treatment system filters rain- and greywater, enriches it with nutrients and cycles it back to the greenhouses. The food waste can be locally collected in the buildings basement, turned into compost and reused to grow more food.Our Farmhouse is an attempt to reconnect people in the city with the process of growing our food.

timeLandscape woolrhythms

“timeLandscape – wool rhythms” 2010. Part of timeLandscape series, 2009 – 2010. Video, audio, projector, speakers, custom patch (PD-Gem), sensor, wool engine. Variable dimensions and duration, loop. “timeLandscape – woolrhythms” is an interactive audiovisual installation in which a landscape is depicted from its multiple time possibilities and [re]composed through users’ real time interaction. The installation was developed in Biella, Italy, an area economically attached to textile industry, and deals with the cyclical perception of time and human, linear, interference on it. It gathers nature and artefact, by connecting a physical wool engine to digital imagery of daily cycles. By turning the wheel crank, users generate movement starting the engine. Through a sensor attached to the machine, software calculates the rotation speed, altering parameters for mixing audio and video fragments in real time. Every turn of the machine leads to different time thread combinations in response to the rhythm and speed of each interactor.

Life Support
Les abeilles sont entraînées en utilisant le réflexe de Pavlov pour cibler une odeur spécifique et leur plage de détection comprend les phéromones, les toxines et le diagnostic des maladies. Non seulement ils peuvent parcourir de grandes distances à la recherche de ce que vous voulez qu’ils reniflent, mais cela ne prend que quelques minutes pour les entraîner, contrairement aux chiens dont la formation peut durer jusqu’à un an. Leur comportement peut être conditionné par des récompenses telles que l’eau sucrée. Ils sont placés dans des récipients en forme de paille et conçus pour sentir une combinaison, disons de sucre, avec de minuscules résidus de TNT. C’est tout! Le sens aigu de l’odorat des abeilles associera alors l’odeur des explosifs à la nourriture. Dans son projet BEE’S, Susana utiliserait les insectes comme biocapteurs, exploitant leur odorat extroadinaire pour détecter des maladies telles que le cancer du poumon, le cancer de la peau et la tuberculose. En outre, ils pouvaient repérer le problème très tôt bien mieux que les machines. Ils pourraient même détecter si une femme est enceinte, ce que je trouve beaucoup plus attrayant et élégant que la méthode habituelle qui consiste à faire pipi sur un morceau de plastique.La créatrice a visité la London Beekeepers Association et a utilisé du chewing-gum dans ses tests avec les abeilles. Elle a ensuite localisé un maître verrier et fait souffler des objets en verre. Les gens respiraient dans les outils de diagnostic en verre où les abeilles sont gardées pendant la courte période de temps nécessaire pour leur permettre de détecter les cycles généraux de santé et de fertilité. Pour éviter que la bouche n’entre en contact avec l’insecte, il existe deux sphères différentes, l’odeur de l’abeille étant suffisamment forte pour renifler ce que vous respirez à travers le verre. Bess se précipiterait dans les tubes qui mènent plus près de la respiration quand ils détectaient une maladie qu’ils associent à la nourriture. Dans son scénario, les gens recevraient des abeilles entraînées par la poste (rien de rare ici apparemment), procéderaient au test respiratoire que de libérer les abeilles.BEE’S explore comment nous pourrions cohabiter avec les systèmes biologiques naturels et utiliser leur potentiel pour augmenter nos capacités de perception. . Nous avons toujours coexisté avec ces systèmes, mais leur potentiel était inconnu. Ce projet est basé sur des recherches en cours qui ont fourni les connaissances nécessaires pour permettre de nouvelles interactions. L’objectif de ce projet est de développer des relations de collaboration entre la recherche scientifique et technologique, les apiculteurs et le design, entre autres, traduisant le résultat en systèmes et objets que les gens peuvent comprendre et utiliser, engendrant des ajustements significatifs.

The Swing

In The Swing, a 3D game avatar becomes Rococo fleshy decadence. In this multi-screen animation, the avatar swings on a seat suspended from the sky, in super Mannerist slow time. Her wooded surroundings ebb and flow at different rate, imitating stop-motion. Years pass in a matter of moments. The avatar is the driver of all of these cycles, but a driver scarcely in control – she is instead, a Mother Nature heading straight for what she suspects might be oblivion. The Swing is a multi channel installation, in nine, five and three screen versions.

MATHIEU MERCIER

Lamps, furniture, bicycles, typography, museum plinths: Mathieu Mercier’s artistic creation moves masterfully between the categories of art and everyday culture, reflecting the concepts of twentieth-century Western culture, particularly those of the modern age, in the area of conflict between architecture, design and art.

CLEMENS BEHR

Né à Koblenz (Allemagne) en 1985, Clemens Behr parcourt le monde pour y déposer d’étranges monuments de carton, de papier et d’objets recyclés. Formé en graphisme et éduqué au graffiti, il s’inspire de l’origami comme, dans une certaine mesure, du cubisme pour composer des sculptures géométriques et éphémères. Ces constructions précaires finissent par s’approprier l’espace, intérieur comme extérieur, où Behr les installe au point de l’habiter ou de l’inviter dans une forme de dialogue tridimensionnel.

Cycles

Created by COCOLAB from Mexico and commissioned by ARCA, Cycles is an audio visual installation comprised of a series of laser projectors to visualise short cycle audio compositions by a collection of A/V artists including Julian Placencia – Disco Ruido (MX), Shiro Schwarz (MX), Eduardo Jiménez (MX), Tijs Ham (NL) and Sebastian Frisch (DE). The concept of the installation relies on the idea that our lives are ruled and defined by cycles. Cycles which at their core appear to be chaos, however at a distance they reveal to us the harmony and beauty of each repetition and their infinite possibilities. Our daily interaction with life’s cycles is an invitation to take the space and reflection time necessary to change our perspective.

Anatomy of Form
The Divine Proportion in the Platonic Solids

In fact, the Graham Foundation recognized Tyng’s talent nearly half a century ago in 1965, when she was awarded for her project Anatomy of Form: The Divine Proportion in the Platonic Solids:In her research she developed a theory of hierarchies of symmetry—symmetries within symmetries—and a search for architectural insight and revelation in the consistency and beauty of all underlying form.It’s fascinating stuff, and the images alone have piqued my interest in Tyng’s theories, which cover topics from Jungian cycles to the cosmos. Tyng (b. 1920 in Jiangxi, China) was one of the first women to earn a Masters in Architecture from Harvard. She spent nearly three decades collaborating with Louis Kahn before shifting her focus to research at the University of Pennsylvania in the late 60’s. The title of the exhibition and her works belie the understated beauty of their execution, which demonstrate the expressive power of order and geometry. Tyng’s unique command of form is matched by her raw intellect; thus, she elegantly articulates her vision in the models seen here.

MOONLAND
The gravitational pull of the Moon creates tides in the Earth’s oceans and distorts the Earth’s crust. It was instrumental in the evolutionary journey of life from the sea to the land. The reproductive cycles of many flora and fauna still follow the rhythms of the Moon.

homage to new york
JEAN TINGUELY’S “Homage to New York” was billed as the ultimate homemade gadget — a towering contraption composed of found junk, dismembered bicycles, dismantled musical instruments, glass bottles, a meteorological balloon and electric motors in questionable condition. It was slated to come to life and spectacularly self-destruct in a one-night-only performance for some 250 patrons and reporters in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden at the Museum of Modern Art on March 17, 1960. And self-destruct it did, but not quite according to plan.Mr. Tinguely’s self-destructive sculpture had failed — and thereby, in a sense, succeeded. Mr. Tinguely, a Swiss artist who died in 1991, was by 1960 well known for such Dada-inflected works; he posed with the wreckage after the performance and took a bow.
