Come molti della mia generazione, sono cresciuto succhiando un tubo a raggi catodici e facendo il bagno nelle onde radio. Tutto questo è rappresentato all’interno del mio lavoro, in un collage di movimento, luce e suono. Attualmente con il mio lavoro sto esplorando modi per dissolvere i confini tra cinematografia e scultura. Le mie recenti ricerche su questo tema hanno coinvolto l’uso di computer combinato con elementi meccanici per creare installazioni simili a mandala. Queste installazioni sono il mio mezzo e le uso per creare animazioni effimere. Questa effimera coreografia di movimento è il punto focale del mio lavoro. Credo che questo fascino per le immagini in movimento e la trasformazione degli oggetti derivi dalla mia giovinezza, dove i primi computer domestici degli anni ’80 mi hanno dato uno sguardo nel meraviglioso mondo della matematica applicata. Su questi computer è stato possibile con codici semplici generare fantastici schemi e suoni astratti e quell’incontro ha distrutto per sempre il confine nella mia mente tra astratto e reale. Anche la danza gioca un ruolo significativo nel mio lavoro; Sono stato attratto dalla musica elettronica. L’electro con il suo suono sintetizzato mi ha introdotto alla break-dance e la mia anima è stata catturata dalla bellezza del movimento fisico coreografato.

“My recent investigations of this theme have involved the usage of computers combined with mechanical elements to create mandala like installations. These installations are my medium and I use them to create ephemeral animations. This ephemeral choreography of movement is the focal point of my work”.

DOUG FOSTER

the psychotron installation
Now one of Doug’s stunning installations is available in edition format. The Psychotron Framed – a video piece based on the 12-petal lotus flower symbolising eastern spirituality’s heart chakra – has been harnessed into a purpose-built viewer that can hang on a wall or stand freely on a flat surface. The piece is currently only available by collection from The Outsiders London gallery. Order now and Doug will assemble the materials in two weeks.“For centuries, circular figures containing symmetrical patterns have been used as a tool for meditation,” says Doug of his original Psychotron on display at Bedlam. “The mandala, the yantra and visualisations of the various chakras, all conform to radial design principles that have been refined throughout the ages. Now those principles have been ruthlessly plundered for the creation of The Psychotron.

Berenike Corcuera

Berenike Corcuera’s collection was inspired by kirilian photographs of her aura, first captured in Chinatown’s reowned Magic Jewelry. when she lived in New York in 2014. She began studying the electromagnetic field of the human body to understand how to translate the invisible. She began the practice of mandala and colour studies, to understand how metaphysical bodies could be interpreted into physical bodies and contemporary menswear clothing.

BALANCE
Temporary sculptures, perpetual motion, focus, energy and balance. mandalas are deconstructed shortly after their completion. This is an allegory, done as a metaphor of the impermanence of life. An incredible kinetic sculpture is built of palm branches by the sculptor, it is amazingly held together only by a feather.

American artist Jen Stark was born in Miami, Florida in 1983 and received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2005. Her kaleidoscopic artwork brings to mind fractals, rainbows, geodes and topographic maps. Her ideas are based on replication and infinity as well as hypnotic, optical designs that mimic mandalas and sacred objects.
