test pattern [n˚2] presents flickering black and white imagery that floats and convulses in darkness on two screens, one on the floor and another floor to ceiling, in time with a stark and powerful, highly synchronised soundtrack. Through a real–time computer programme, Ikeda’s audio signal patterns are converted into tightly synchronised barcode patterns on the screens. Viewers are literally immersed in the work, and the velocity of the moving images is ultra–fast, some hundreds of frames per second, providing a totally immersive and powerful experience. The work provides a performance test for the audio and visual devices, as well as a response test for the audience’s perceptions.

Squint
file festival
I was inspired by how the sunlight bounces around in our artificial forest.
“Squint” is a kinetic light installation consisting of 49 mirrors that reflect lights in a bright space. The mirrors track and reflect lights on audiences’ face with composed patterns of movements. It extends the generated perception by focusing on how lights pass across our visual senses physically, and combines with our perception of images through flickering. “Squint”, which extracts various daily experiences to an abstraction brings the audience to expand their interpretation of lights and perceived imagination into a non-linear experience.
“Squint” simulates light source and intentionally shines lights on audience’s faces. Bright light is projected in the gallery, a clean bright space.
Everyday people are dynamically moving around in the city. Sunlight reflects and flickers even when it is indirect and hidden behind the artifacts. While we are traveling, we are experiencing motion. We are also experiencing the shift of light intensity, visual patterns and textures. The varieties of light forms inspire the artist to explore the potential of light textures, select and sort out the combined complexity in urban space. The artist turns them into a minimal form of light experience, while maximizing its diversity of perception.

56 FLICKERING LIGHTS

Philippe Parreno, geboren 1964 in Oran, Algerien, lebt und arbeitet in Paris. Nach Abschluss seines Studiums der Mathematik hat Parreno an der Kunstakademie Grenoble studiert, er hat seit etwa 1990 seine Konzepte, Projekte und Filme im Kunstkontext ausgestellt. Parreno’s Werk beschäftigt sich mit der Frage nach dem Status des Bildes und den Formen der Ausstellung. Es verbindet Aspekte aus Kunst, Film, Theater, Design und entwirft transitorische Orte für temporäre, kulturell-ästhetisch definierte Gemeinschaften. Seine komplexen Szenarien aus Bild, Objekt, Sound, Projektion und Licht haben die Wahrnehmung und Erfahrbarkeit des Formats ‚Ausstellung’ neu definiert.
