Das Gehirn

Um ihre auffallend chaotischen und spontanen Formen einzufangen, werden die Neuronen in Self Reflected mit einer Technik gemalt, bei der Tinte mit Luftstrahlen auf einer Leinwand herumgeblasen wird. Die resultierenden Tintenspritzer bilden auf natürliche Weise fraktale wie neuronale Muster, und obwohl der Künstler lernt, die allgemeinen Grenzen der Technik zu kontrollieren, bleibt er in seinem Herzen ein chaotischer, abstrakter expressionistischer Prozess.

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.

FREDERIK HEYMAN

Formalidade Cerimonial
O trabalho de Frederik Heyman é um ato de equilíbrio que incorpora várias mídias – incluindo vídeo, instalações e fotografia – muitas vezes em um ambiente digitalmente alterado. Em seu trabalho, Heyman explora a memória e a duração, usando fotogrametria e digitalização 3D para retratar e representar a passagem do tempo. As marcas registradas do trabalho de Heyman são mecânicas e tecnológicas: fios, rodas, letreiros LED de rolagem, armações de metal, pinças, lâmpadas industriais, telas e câmeras. Corpos – ao contrário dos humanos – estão sujeitos a uma dinâmica incomum com essas armadilhas tecnológicas. Em Cerimonial Formality (2020), uma contorcionista está presa em uma gaiola de metal enquanto um espectador, preso a fios, observa.

Zeremonielle Formalität Frederik Heymans Arbeit ist ein Balanceakt, der mehrere Medien einbezieht – darunter Video, Installationen und Fotografie – oft in einer digital veränderten Umgebung. In seiner Arbeit erforscht Heyman Gedächtnis und Dauer, indem er Photogrammetrie und 3D-Digitalisierung verwendet, um den Lauf der Zeit darzustellen und darzustellen. Die Markenzeichen von Heymans Arbeit sind mechanisch und technologisch: Drähte, Räder, scrollende LED-Schilder, Metallrahmen, Pinzetten, Industrielampen, Bildschirme und Kameras. Körper unterliegen bei diesen technologischen Fallstricken – anders als der Mensch – einer ungewöhnlichen Dynamik.

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.

SOL
SOL is a minimalistic environment, leading visitors into the reaches of their perception. The installation builds on loss of control, shifts in awareness and a feeling of dislocation and timelessness. SOL is the third work in an ongoing series of phenomenological environments, after the live performance FEED, 2005 and the installation ZEE, 2008. The all encompassing darkness of SOL is lifted, in intervals and for parts of seconds only, by animated bursts of intensely bright light. Falling back into darkness, visitors experience abundant retinal after-images, that gradually drift away until eventually the next eruption of light is triggered. In the surround sound-scape of SOL, electronic drones mix with swarming field recordings, amidst a sea of infra-bass.

Zwölf Installationseinheiten standen im Ausstellungsraum. Jede Einheit bestand aus einem Rundkolben in einem Edelstahlständer, der mit einem vertikalen Glasrohr ausgestattet war. Jeder Kolben wurde etwa ein Viertel mit destilliertem Wasser gefüllt. Wenn die Widerstandsspule die Luft im Kolben erhitzte, dehnte sie sich aus und drückte das Wasser in das Glasrohr. Der Wasserstand stieg an, als die Luft erwärmt wurde, und begann langsam zu fallen, als sie abkühlte.

“L’installazione di Pierpaolo Piccioli è stata la prima che hai incontrato entrando nello spazio cavernoso. Era come entrare in una cappella, con le tele del monaco artista Sidival Fila appese alle pareti; e sui manichini, mantelle, mantelle e gonne a trapezio disegnate, diceva Piccioli, per evocare la Madonna. Quasi divini nella loro semplicità, non saranno estranei ai suoi seguaci di Valentino.” Nicole Phelp

Die Installation von Hei Ng besteht aus Hämmern, aus deren Griffen Häuser geschnitzt sind. In Bezug auf das Nagelhaus in Sichuan spielt der Künstler mit dem Oxymoron zwischen Bewahrung und Zerstörung, dem Antagonismus zwischen Staatsmacht und der Integrität eines gewöhnlichen Menschen. Roy Ngs kinetische Installation ist von Yang Xinguangs Blatt 2 inspiriert, in dem ein in einem scharfen Ast perforiertes Blatt die Grenze zwischen absichtlich und zufällig verdeckt. Vor dem Fall des Blattes ahmt es ein Blatt nach, das durch die Strömung segelt.

„Objekte werden erfunden, um bestimmte Bedürfnisse, insbesondere menschliche Bedürfnisse, zu befriedigen. Mit meiner Skulptur untersuche ich das Bedürfniskonzept, wenn der Mensch aus dieser Gleichung entfernt wird. Ich mache das, indem ich den Menschen durch das Objekt selbst ersetze. Meine Skulpturen sind nur erfunden, um sich selbst zu erhalten und als selbstlösende Probleme zu fungieren. Das Ergebnis ist ein Objekt, das nur erfunden wurde, um die Komplikationen zu kompensieren, die durch seine eigene Existenz entstehen. Das Stück allein repräsentiert die Notwendigkeit und die Auflösung. Viele meiner Stücke sind kleine, federbelastete, mechanische Objekte. Sie sind aufwendig entworfen und hergestellt, um eine der einfachsten und doch wichtigsten Aufgaben zu erfüllen, die ein autonomes Objekt erfüllen kann. Diese Aufgabe, dieses Bedürfnis ist es, sich zu halten. In den meisten Fällen erreichen meine Arbeiten dies, indem sie sich aktiv an bestimmte architektonische Merkmale und einzelne Objekte binden.

Die Wassermatrix (Matrice liquide 3D, auf Französisch) ist eine Robotermaschine, die in Echtzeit Wasserskulpturen erstellt und eine kontinuierliche Entwicklung von Formen und Bildern zum Leben erweckt. Diese Installation schafft vergängliche Skulpturen, die der Betrachter in ständiger Beobachtung und Überraschung festhält, fast eine Metapher des berühmten Flusses Heraklit, in dem „alles fließt, alles sich ändert, nichts übrig bleibt. Tore. Die Idee der 3D-Flüssigmatrix wurde 2001 bei einem Besuch in Lille, der Kulturhauptstadt Europas, geboren, wo Shiro Takatani einen Roboterbrunnenschreiber projizierte, der seine Botschaften übermitteln sollte, indem er eine Reihe flüssiger Buchstaben auf den Teich fallen ließ. Leider existierte die Technologie noch nicht und er musste warten, um einen zuverlässigen technischen Partner mit umfassender Erfahrung im Bau digitaler Wasservorhänge als Lumiartecnia Internacional zu finden. Zwei renommierte Digitalkünstler haben während der Roboterkunstausstellung die Kunstwerke für die Wassermatrix entwickelt: Shiro Takatani und Christian Partos. Shiro Takatanis Kunstwerk schafft eine räumliche Erfahrung, die mehrere Schichten paralleler Tröpfchen erzeugt, die auf magische Weise in der Luft zu schweben scheinen, und für Momente, in denen sie sich aus dem Teich erheben und wieder fallen, in sich unmöglich entwickelnden Kreationen, die der Schwerkraft zu trotzen scheinen. Christian Partos Kunstwerk schafft Sequenzen von Wasserskulpturen, die die Fähigkeit der Wassermatrix zeigen, sofort vergängliche Wasserformen zu erzeugen, die im Teich unten verschwinden, um eine neue zu gebären, und auf diese Weise ein konstant fließendes Video von 3D-Skulpturen zu erstellen, als ob sie es wären waren Fotogramme aus einem Film.

Einstein On The Beach

ROBERT WILSON
Portrait Trilogy:Einstein; Akhnaten; Gandhi

.
Einstein on the Beach is an opera in four acts (framed and connected by five “knee plays” or intermezzos), scored by Philip Glass and directed by theatrical producer Robert Wilson. The opera eschews traditional narrative in favor of a formalist approach based on structured spaces laid out by Wilson in a series of storyboards. The music was written “in the spring, summer and fall of 1975.”Glass recounts the collaborative process: “I put [Wilson’s notebook of sketches] on the piano and composed each section like a portrait of the drawing before me. The score was begun in the spring of 1975 and completed by the following November, and those drawings were before me all the time.”

abschlag

Thomas Hirschhorn’s “Abschlag” installation, which occupies the first room on the main floor, offers a lesson in how not to engage with the Russian milieu: the Swiss artist constructed part of a typical Petersburg apartment block out of cardboard inside the full-height space, ripped off its façade, and deposited the refuse at its base, revealing shabby interiors lined with original avant-garde masterpieces (on loan from the nearby Russian Museum) by the likes of Malevich and El Lissitky. The references allude to a politically radical Russian past; the construction debris acts as a metaphor for history. Though Hirschhorn suggests a recovery of the revolutionary communist spirit of the 1920s, he falls prey to a historically revisionist fetish: citing the Russian avant-garde as a generative point for vanguard culture in the West, and offering it as a source for renewed progressivism in Russia. Hirschhorn seems woefully unaware of the Putin government’s branding campaign, one that aims to sell the Russian avant-guard as a nationalist movement in line with the regime’s own values (perhaps he didn’t watch the Sochi opening ceremony). Hirschhorn ultimately proves Zhilayev right — with its political pretenses, “Abschlag” aspires to make a grand gesture against conservatism, but fails because its critique has already been co-opted..

LOIE FULLER

Danse Serpentine

La Serpentine è un’evoluzione della gonna dance, una forma di danza burlesque arrivata da poco negli Stati Uniti dall’Inghilterra. La danza della gonna era di per sé una reazione contro le forme “accademiche” di balletto, incorporando versioni addomesticate di danze popolari e popolari come il can-can. La nuova danza è stata originata da Loïe Fuller, che ha fornito diversi resoconti di come l’ha sviluppata. Secondo il suo racconto, che è ampiamente riportato, non avendo mai ballato professionalmente prima, ha scoperto accidentalmente gli effetti della luce del palcoscenico proiettata da diverse angolazioni sul tessuto di garza di un costume che aveva frettolosamente assemblato per la sua performance nella commedia Quack MD, e spontaneamente ha sviluppato la nuova forma in risposta alla reazione entusiasta del pubblico nel vedere il modo in cui la sua gonna appariva alle luci. Durante il ballo ha tenuto la sua lunga gonna tra le mani e l’ha agitata, rivelando la sua forma all’interno. Nelle parole dello storico della danza Jack Anderson, “Il costume per la sua Serpentine Dance consisteva in centinaia di metri di seta cinese che lei lasciava fluttuare intorno a lei mentre gli effetti di luce suggerivano che stesse prendendo fuoco e assumendo forme che ricordavano fiori, nuvole, uccelli ., e farfalle. “

The Raft
The Raft depicts at life-sized scale a group of ordinary people casually standing together. Suddenly, they are struck by strong blasts of water that rush in, overtake them, and then, just as unexpectedly, recede. In the aftermath of the deluge, the victims huddle together, seek protection, and help those who have fallen. The viewer experiences this event in an immersive setting, standing in a darkened room and surrounded by the roaring sounds of the water. Meticulously captured in slow-motion, The Raft arouses a visceral experience of human calamity and shared humanity, provoking a consideration of the range of responses to crisis.

Ich arbeite mit mehreren verschiedenen Medien, normalerweise mehr oder weniger gleichzeitig. Skulptur, Installation, Video- / Filmarbeiten und Holzschnitte. Der Ausgangspunkt für meine Arbeit ist immer die persönliche Erfahrung und das tatsächliche physische Material, mit dem ich arbeite. Ein wiederkehrendes Thema ist der Wunsch nach Kontrolle und das Interesse an den Situationen, in denen es zusammenbricht. Das „Aufrechterhalten des Aussehens um jeden Preis“, die tatsächlichen Kosten dafür und die Momente oder Situationen, in denen die Kontrolle verloren geht und das Chaos unter den Oberflächen. Dahinter liegt die Angst vor dem Scheitern und der anschließende Fall in einen undefinierten Abgrund. Für mich ist das nicht nur ein psychologischer oder existenzieller Zustand, sondern ebenso ein politischer Zustand. Die Skulpturen beziehen sich auf ähnliche Ideen rund um Kontrolle / Chaos, Oberfläche / was darunter liegt, lebendig / tot usw. Aber es geht auch darum, etwas wiederzugewinnen. Für mich sind sie Versuche, das Leben aus dem Reich der Toten zurückzubringen, wie animistische Anrufungen und ein Weg, eine zunehmend entmystifizierte Welt wieder zu verzaubern. data-text=”Ich arbeite mit mehreren verschiedenen Medien, normalerweise mehr oder weniger gleichzeitig.

Licht in Wasser Installation
“Licht im Wasser“ ist eine ortsspezifische Installation, die ein eindringliches und emotionales Erlebnis bieten soll. Es wurde zuvor auf der Mailänder Designwoche 2011 vorgestellt. Die Installation nutzte den einzigartigen Status des Veranstaltungsortes – einer der ältesten Betonkuppeln in Paris. Die Installation wurde daher an die kreisförmige Form des Raums angepasst und definierte das innere Heiligtum als „Ort zum Sein“ und einen äußeren Bereich als Raum für einen Zuschauer. An der Decke befinden sich 16 Ringe aus Schlitzrohren. Aus jedem Loch fallen jede Minute 60 Tropfen Wasser; Insgesamt zirkulieren 3 Tonnen Wasser im Raum. Die LED-Leuchten vibrieren zwischen Ein und Aus mit Frequenzen im kürzesten Intervall von 7 μs, sodass der Betrachter einen Lichtpunkt im Wasser bis zu 6000 μs materialisieren kann, an dem Licht zur Wasserlinie wird.

Loom zeigt abstrakte Animationen, die mit Daten von Google Trends in Echtzeit entwickelt wurden. Beliebte Abfragen werden vorübergehend als überlagerter Text angezeigt, bevor sie sich in eine rauchige Abstraktion auflösen. Diese Begriffe werden mit einer zufälligen Lyrik angegangen – jedes Wort erscheint und verschwindet in einer Spur der Sättigung. Die Farben in der Animation werden durch die Häufigkeit eines bestimmten Themas bestimmt. Je viraler die Suche online ist, desto wärmer werden die Töne. Ohne Schlagzeilen, grafische Bilder und Statistiken inspiriert jede Phrase eine kontemplative Erfahrung, eine Gelegenheit für den Betrachter, darüber nachzudenken, was zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt durch das kollektive Bewusstsein strömt. Loom verwebt ein soziales Gefüge, das das Transzendentale mit dem Banalen vermischt, um den Geist unserer Zeit in generativer Bewegung darzustellen.

Kreuzfeuer
Der Schwerpunkt der Praxiskommission für Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft lag auf der Untersuchung der immateriellen Eigenschaften des gesprochenen Wortes und der Untersuchung der unsichtbaren Auswirkungen von Schall auf die bewohnte Umgebung. Das Projekt konzentriert sich auf den Kontext eines häuslichen Arguments. In diesem Fall zeigt die Veranstaltung einen Audioauszug aus dem Sam Mendes-Film “American Beauty“ von 1999. Der langsame Dialog zwischen den drei Hauptfiguren des Familienessens gipfelt in einem lauten Aufeinandertreffen von Emotionen. Das Kreuzfeuer des Arguments durchquert den Esstisch, aber wo zuvor die leblosen Alltagsgegenstände wie Teller, Besteck, Teekanne usw. ihren Charakter nicht ausdrücken konnten, verformt die Intensität des Gesprächs ihre einst statische Existenz in Gegenstände unsichtbarer Vertrautheit Die präsentierten Klangartefakte enthalten jeweils eine momentane Emotion des Arguments.

A playful balancing act by a robotarm. This enormous machine balancing itself on a stainlesssteel semi sphere. When the arm moves, stretches, the balance point of the entire construction shifts which makes the whole machine lean over until it -almost- tips. The robot seems curious to find its tipping point, searching for the limits of balance without ever really being able to fall over. The machine is playing a children’s game with enormous power and robotic precision.

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?

Loop 60 Hz: Transmissions from the Drone Orchestra
A flock of autonomous DJI copters are programmed as aerial dancers and are mounted with specially engineered wireless speakers to broadcast the instruments of the band. Other copters are dressed in elaborate costumes to disguise their form and reflect light across the audience below. Against a score of original compositions and selected tracks from Cale’s seminal career this collaboration with Young imagines the possibilities of the drones as emerging cultural objects. If these technologies are no longer unseen objects overhead, or propelled along classified flight paths but brought into close and intimate relations with us then how might we see them differently. When their transmission fades, when the drones lose their signal and without their protocols for terror and surveillance, do they drop from the sky, do they fall in love or do the drones drift endlessly, forever on loop.

your unerasable text
“your unerasable text” is an interactive installation, dealing with the topics of data storage and elimination of data. The installation can be placed in an exhibition, but ideally it’s exhibited in a public space window, where it can be used by people passing by 24h a day. The participant is asked to send a textmessage to the number written on a sign next to the installation. “send your unerasable textmessage to +43 664 1788374”. The receiver mobile transfers it to a computer, which is layouting the message automatically. Then it is printed on to a DIN A6 paper, which is falling directly on to a papershredder. There the message remains readable for a few moments and gets destroyed then. The shredded paper forms a visible heap on the floor, which reminds of a generative graphic.

Clap Studio

Mist Installation
An installation designed by Clap for Minsk, Belarus, that was built by volunteers from the city itself. For the concept of this installation Clap starts from the history of Minsk, a city that during the Second World War was devastated. The bombs destroyed 80% of the buildings and the city was not rebuilt until the 1950s. That is why the population of this city remembers these times as something unpleasant and many of them prefer not to talk about it. The design studio starts from a geometric volume that represents in a conceptual way the volume of a building. They imagine that the bombs fall on him destroying it, generating new openings and brand new volumes. These new openings result ingeniously in an entrance and a viewpoint on the top. The destruction gives way to the function generates grandstands, stairs and seats. From the inside, life makes its way in the form of a tree, exceeding the height of the installation itself.

Particle Falls

Particle Falls is a large-scale, real-time visualization of air-quality data.On a background of falling blue light, spots of bright, fiery color emerge and crackle, representing the presence of fine particulate matter, as detected by a nearby air monitor. Fewer bright spots over the falls mean fewer particles in the air.Particle Falls draws our attention to the invisible particles that surround us and that may affect our health. While the visible smog that plagued many U.S. urban centers decades ago has been mitigated by technology and regulatory measures, microscopic threats to our air continue to exist and often go unnoticed. Particle Falls is one way we can learn more about the quality of air around us.

Pangenerator

Hash2ash
Installation touches on the themes of selfie-culture, and the fear of permanently losing the digital records of our lives due to technical failures, impermanence of data storage, or simply because of the obsolescence of the old digital file formats. Even with such compulsive overproduction of the images of ourselves we might end up with nothing but the blank memories of our past. Even the data on ourselves will eventually fade away… The installation consist of the display that prompts you to take a selfie on your phone, which it renders in digital particles on its large 1×1 meter screen. Then a moment later, your face scatters and falls apart and the real black gravel starts to fall at the bottom of the screen in perfect synchrony with the digital simulation. Gradually a dark mound builds up at the foot of the construction.

Gogol
“The opera’s three acts are divided into seven scenes which blend fact with liberal amounts of invention. Among other things, Gogol wrestles with his (and Russia’s) demons by night, obsesses over his will and funeral arrangements, gets abused by doctors (‘but I don’t drink alcohol,’ he cries; ‘all the more reason for a leeching,’ they reply), bats away bothersome suitors with disconcertingly large papier-mâché breasts, falls in love with a nymph, and undergoes a literary show trial which culminates in his death.”

I / II / III / IIII

In I/II/III/IIII, choreographer and visual artist Kris Verdonck transforms the stage into a life-size dollhouse. Four female ICK-dancers – not unlike marionettes – are floating in mid-air, suspended from a huge machine. A solo, a duet, a trio and a quartet follow one another in this choreography of identical movements. A game of surrendering to the machine and at the same time, searching for control. The images evoked by I/II/III/IIII are confusing and ambiguous: the dancers almost look like graceful, fragile swans … but they also remind us of animal carcasses being dragged along, floating angels, falling human bodies and everything in between.

Watertight
Over the past 50 years, the number of people in the average household has fallen drastically. For the first time in Western world history, the one-person household has become a dominant mode of living. In Manhattan, more than half of all homes have one occupant. For Watertight, we documented 12 New Yorkers and their home interiors with a 3D scanner. We used the Skanect software’s “watertight” function and a 3D printer to create a series of miniature portraits—egg-shaped sculptures the size of a hand. The series of portraits offers a cross-section of a contemporary demographic phenomenon, a form of present-day archaeology.

Blooming
“Blooming” is an interactive audiovisual installation that highlights the importance of human connection. It takes the form of a life-size 3D Cherry blossom tree, which is a common symbol of social ties and transience of life in East Asian culture. As a response to participants’ skin-to-skin contacts, heart rate, and gestures, “Blooming” blossoms according to their intimacy. As audience members hold hands or embrace, the digital Cherry tree flowers bloom and scatter. When they let go off their physical contacts, the flower return to its pre-bloom state. The color of the flowers turns white or red based on participants’ heart rate as they interact with each other. (the faster the heart rate, the redder the tonality; the slower the heart rate, the whiter the tonality). In addition to the visual responses, sounds are also modulated according to the tree’s different stages: pre-bloom, blooming, petals falling.

REI – Listening to Silence
This work consists of a jet-black sphere containing 16 speaker units, six loudspeakers suspended from the ceiling, and a cubic structure. It creates an acoustic space by reverberating the sound of water from the sphere and the surrounding environment using four omnidirectional micro- phones installed on both the structure and the loudspeakers. The oceans evaporate, rain falls, and rivers continue to flow forever without any kind of consciousness. REI moves from the conscious to the subconscious by superimposing the sound echoing from one’s own body and the sound of water echoing from the sphere, which is a metaphor for this world.

I hope that this device will lower the bar for initiating reconciliation from the heights of the full contact hand on hand handshake to a more palatable non contact handshake. I plan to contact embassies around the world where resentment is prevalent. I would like to see all family counseling offices have one in their meeting rooms. I would encourage anyone who has fallen out with a friend, family member, work colleague, gang member or world leader to use the Pre-handshake Handshake Device and let bygones be bygones.

Aquaphoneia is an alchemical installation centred around the poiesis of time and transmutation of voice into matter. A large horn floating mid space echoes the ghosts of Edison, Bell, and Berliner’s machines. But unlike early recording, herding sound energy to etch pressure patterns in solid matter, this odd assemblage transmutes voice into water and water into air. Disembodied voices abandon their sources to cross the event horizon of the horn. Estranged, the schizo-phone falls into the narrow depths of the bell, squeezed into spatiotemporal infinity, calcinated, liquified and released: The aqueous voice then flows into three alchemical chambers where inner time is surrendered to the tempi of matter: unbound, yet lucid and sound.

Chijikinkutsu
“Chijikinkutsu” is a coinage, specially created for the title of this work by mingling two Japanese words: “Chijiki” and “Suikinkutsu”.”Chijiki” means geomagnetism: terrestrial magnetic properties that cannot be sensed by the human body but that exists everywhere on earth. Since long before the Age of Discovery, people have traveled with navigation using compasses employing geomagnetism. In recent years, various devises that utilize geomagnetism have even been incorporated into smartphones[…] “Suikinkutsu” is a sound installation for a Japanese traditional garden, invented in the Edo period. The sounds of water drops falling into an earthenware pot buried under a stone wash basin resonate through hollow bamboo utensils. The concept of the work “Chijikinkutsu” does not derive from experimentalism of science and technology on which media arts rely, nor from architectural theory of western music upon which some sound arts lay their foundation. While utilizing the action of geomagnetism normally treated as a subject of science, this sound installation expands the subtle sounds of “Suikinkutsu” in the context of Japanese perspective on Nature.

YOUARENOWHERE
Conjuring a futuristic sort of shamanism, Andrew Schneider’s YOUARENOWHERE experiments with the virtues of sensory overload via quantum mechanics, parallel universes, and the “Missed Connections” board on Craigslist. Battling glitchy transmissions, crackling microphones, and lighting instruments falling from the sky, one guy on a mission and a tricked-out interactive new-media landscape merge to transform physical space, warp linear time, and short-circuit preconceived notions of what it means to be here now.

Foam Studio

KVADRAT Exploration
R&D for Danish textile company Kvadrat that predominantly revolves around the idea of coating fragments of furniture with fabric rather than falling back on the more commonly seen real world simulation of fabrics. Employing a fluid, almost water-like approach to motion we see abstract furniture fragments emerging from the fabric; its amorphous forms continually re-configuring itself for a graphic, textural delight.

airmorphologies

Humans, as social beings, use language to communicate. The human voice, as a biometric authentication mechanism, is constantly used throughout daily life applications, such as speech recognition, speaker verification, and so on. Currently, language-based communications mainly fall into two categories: voice over air, and voice over internet protocol. Can we add a new dimension for voice communication such as a wearable material? If so, how could we shape matter in order to physicalize vocal information?

airMorphologiesis an interactive installation that uses soft materials, such as silicon, fabric, and air, to realize these physicalizations. The human voice controls the actuation of a soft wearable structure, changing the appearance of the human body.

The Robotic Chair
The Robotic Chair is a generic-looking wooden chair with the capacity to fall apart and put itself back together. With shuddering force, the chair collapses to the floor. With persistence and determination, it proceeds to seek out its parts and upright itself. Powered by MICROMO coreless dc motors, The Robotic Chair is distinguished in the world of objects for its capacity to elicit empathy, compassion and hope.

two rooms

For some years Cornelia Parker’s work has been concerned with formalising things beyond our control, containing the volatile and making it into something that is quiet and contemplative like the ‘eye of the storm’. She is fascinated with processes in the world that mimic cartoon ‘deaths’ – steamrollering, shooting full of holes, falling from cliffs and explosions. Through a combination of visual and verbal allusions her work triggers cultural metaphors and personal associations, which allow the viewer to witness the transformation of the most ordinary objects into something compelling and extraordinary.

CRAIG GREEN

Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2020
The collection’s first half was staunchly buffered by outerwear resembling that of protective armor, with contemporary suiting and shirting turned upside down by boxy and robust puffer-like additives […] These qualities were furthered in an array of pieces that look like camping tents with ladders hanging from the front and even in pieces that resembled wire mesh attached to the body, emitting cage-like qualities that tie into Green’s continued themes surrounding the dissection of the male psyche.

Richard Quinn

Moncler’s Genius Fall 2020
Since its inception, the Moncler genius project has asked designers coming from diverse cultures to create capsule collections inspired by the iconic Moncler puffer jacket. For his collection, london-based designer Richard Quinn visited the retro-futurism of the sixties. With clear influences like stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and Twiggy, the collection perfectly blends maximalism, bold colors and couture shapes. Of course, Quinn’s flower prints — part of his design DNA — were not left behind.

CHIU CHIH

Voyage on the Planet
Designer Chiu Chih imagines a possible future where our cities have fallen into disrepair and the air is poisoned. In this wasteland, a woman wanders through the rubble, breathing with the help of a companion plant. The project, titled “Voyage on the planet,” consists of a clear box worn like a backpack. Two breathing tubes connect a face mask to the box. Inside, the box holds a potted plant, acting like a portable filter.

FILE LED SAO PAULO 2018
“Every Time the Stars Align” fuses different natural elements of crystals, plasma and flowers in a lava lamp environment. Red crystals freeze with rigid edges and thaws into a relaxing mood. Plasma liquid rises and falls reflecting a lava-like quality. Flowers fluctuate between a spectrum of color symbolizing intense human affections. Contradicting and uniting flat and deep spaces, the three elements compose and decompose.

octfalls
Octfalls consists of eight hanging HD screens displaying images of a silver waterfall cascading down a cliff, while the sound of the water rushing over rocks plays over a pair of speakers attached to each screen. These screens are distributed throughout the space at varying heights, encouraging our eyes to wander freely through the installation. The stunning images and highly refined sounds immerse our senses and play tricks on our perceptions. The waterfall suddenly vanishes in vain, then reappears, shifting to another screen, a complex combination of loops in a unique sequence of orchestrated play.

PE LANG

Moving Objects | nº 502 – 519
Gravitation, Magnetismus, Mechanik. Wenn in einer Runde gelegentlich das Wort ‘Physik’ fällt, verziehen sich die Gesichter. Mit Grausen erinnern sich viele an ihre Schulzeit. Dem Schweizer Künstler Pe Lang aus Sursee ist ein fabelhafter Coup gelungen. Seine Arbeiten greifen physikalische Phänomene auf. Bewegung und Chaos, Raum und Zeit. Präzision, Reibung, Klang. Auf unerhört ästhetische Weise sind seine Objekte so konstruiert, dass es ein pures Vergnügen ist, sich ihnen, staunend wir Kinder, zu nähern.

Reflected Roof
A series of fans gently shape the textile into a sequence of changing forms that although programmed will never exactly repeat. The daylight, cast from above, falls onto and through the fabric and as it’s angle changes throughout the day creates ever changes in colour, shadow and reflection.

Moving footbridge
Paddington, London
Opening in sequence, the bridge’s five beams rise to different angles to create a fan-like effect. The first rises to 70 degrees, while the last lifts high enough to create a clearance space of two and a half metres over the surface of the canal. The weight of the beams – which range from six to seven tons – is balanced by a 40 ton counterweight that keeps the beams steady as they rise and fall.

Waterfall

FILE FESTIVAL
Waterfall presents the viewer with a single static shot of a majestic waterfall. Over the course of the piece a number of diminutive figures walk slowly into the shot on the gravel bar at the bottom of the falls. They have come to pay their respects to the waterfall, we might call them pilgrims – we might call them tourists. Their slow-motion performances appear to be a mixture of the comedic and the devout.
