Schweigman & en Cocky Eek

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?

Troika

Thixotropes
They’re called Thixotropes. Compositions comprised of eight illuminated mechanized structures create choreographies of lighting effects that alternate form warm to cold light. Designed by London based design firm Troika, these suspended systems merge technology with art and explore the realm in which rational observations intersect with the metaphysical and surreal. Each of the structures is shaped as a composition of intersecting angular and geometric forms, made of thin tensed banding lined with rows of LED’s. The constructions continuously revolve around their own axis thereby materializing the path of the light and dissolving the spinning structures into compositions of aerial cones, spheres and ribbons of warm and cold light while giving life and shape to an immaterial construct.

LECH MAJEWSKI

The Garden of Earthly Delights
Based on his own novel “Metaphysics”, Lech Wajewski’s film is an erotic treatise on art, love and death. When British art historian Claudine learns that her cancer is terminal, she abandons caution and takes her lover, Chris, on an extraordinary journey to Venice, where their passion finds fulfillment in the fantastic paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. Videotaping their trip, Claudine intends to leave Chris a haunting record of their emotional and spiritual discoveries.

FLOS STRING LIGHTS
Minimalista y poética como una línea dibujada por un lápiz en el aire, así es esta lámpara de suspensión que Michael Anastassiades ha diseñado para la firma de iluminación Flos. String Lights es un reflejo de la filosofía de trabajo del diseñador chipriota afincado en Londres que siempre busca la esencia tanto de la forma como de los materiales.

Gustav Deutsch

Shirley: Visions of Reality
FILE SAO PAULO 2015
Edward Hopper movie
Inusual y rompedora película concebida como un experimento por la austriaca mente de Gustav Deutsch (Viena, 1952), el cual trae a la pantalla 13 cuadros del pintor norteamericano Edward Hopper y les insufla vida a través del protagonismo de Shirley, mujer que hace las veces de Josephine, quien fuera la fiel esposa de Hopper y sempiterno modelo de sus obras. Ella es como la encarnación de la mujer norteamericana a lo largo de los años que abarcan los lienzos elegidos, de 1931 hasta 1965.

This interactive installation imagines that the worlds inside our digital devices can move into the physical world. Small bugs made of light crawl out of a computer screen onto the human bodies that make contact with them, often surprising their audience as they try to abandon a virtual existence. The magic of the illusion takes shape as the audience lets them explore their bodies, crawling from one person to the next in a strangely intimate way. As digital technologies have become embedded in everyday life, the line between the virtual and real is increasingly blurred. Delicate Boundaries playfully explores our expectations and understanding of interfaces and interactivity.
