Meditação
Se não temos o poder para reformar nosso ambiente, precisamos encontrar possibilidades de meditação usando os significantes que preenchem as cidades. “Meditação” é uma meditação prática e alternativa que só funciona quando você se deixa perder. Inúmeros símbolos estão comprimidos dentro da obra, expressos em padrões irregulares de som através das três instalações audiovisuais, e o som se transforma, formando imagens de ondas. A mídia reproduzida, ao ser comprimida e suprimida, traz mais possibilidades de pensamento e escolha do que os valores contidos em sua própria forma. Através desses processos, “Meditation” pode ser a ferramenta certa para a meditação.

mediative digital art
While in quarantine, I became inspired to create my vision of a world of meditativeness; my vision of how the practice of meditation can also be integrated into our every day lives through art, architecture, design and fashion. My vision is of a future based on the individual practice of meditation, extending to every aspect of our every day lives. I am inspired by Japanese Zen art, architecture and design. It’s very existence has shaped the world culture in profound ways, and will continue to impact art and design as it lives through my creations.

Liminal Scope
Liminal Scope is an immersive light and sound installation, in which three rings frame the transit of light through space. The audiovisual score enmeshes harmonic frequencies, rhythmic motion,
and gradients of color, orchestrating a narrative which navigates tension and release. Our form of reality is mutually constructed by our perceptions along with their limitations. The installation’s rings form an aperture that focuses and reveals a spatial quality of light, which usually remains unseen. Liminal Scope is a meditation on these perceptual limitations as they
relate to our shared and individual perspectives on reality.

Your double my double our ghost
The installation acts a space for the consideration of intimacy and meditation– both alone and with others that may share the space – through the merging of the viewer’s own reflections articulated through a composition of shifting light and emerging sounds which fill an otherwise dark chamber. Functioning similarly to the classic funfair mirror– the flexible silver two-way mirror sheeting forming an ethereal hanging centrepiece– the work invites the viewer to consider representations of themselves which appear distorted and transient, and which merge with those around them to form ‘new presences’. In this sense the viewer may see themselves multiplied or doubled with another viewer, or find themselves alone in a rare moment of literal reflection providing a contemplative space or eliciting a hallucinatory fantasy bringing forth ideas in neuroscience around the Self and Other.

Le Fawnhawk

Modern Desert Magic
Petecia Le Fawnhawk is a modern surrealist whose body of work is a meditation in form as monuments juxtaposed against minimal and ethereal desert landscapes. In placing elemental shapes in a vast dreamscape, Petecia strips away the unnecessary in an attempt to reveal truth in the mysterious and magisterial.

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.

Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan
Lin Hwai-min’s Cursive II is inspired by the aesthetics of calligraphy. Set to music by John Cage, it is an exquisite meditation on the balancing of opposites presented in delicate simplicity, allowing no distraction from the details of the dance.

NOQTURNL V1
Noqturnl is an audiovisual meditation exploring collective dreamstate. The audience is invited to spend the night in the 4DSOUND system. A group of listeners are immersed in a spatial experience while they flit around the threshold between waking state and dream. Slow, pulse driven musical constructs, vast landscapes of sound and visual patterns develop over hours as the listeners drifts in and out of sleep, blurring the boundaries between dream environment and physical space: in doing so, allowing conscious access to the vivid, intuitive imagery and sensation within the borders of dream experience.

Meditation
우리는 마치 거대한 계의 부속품처럼 서로 맞물려 돌아간다. 부속품이 그렇듯 우리는 자신의 인생에서 조차 주인공이 아닌 변두리의 색인간으로 하루하루 버티며 살고 있다. 나의 작업에서 쓰이는 체인은 속박을 의미한다. 그 속박은 타의적인 인간관계와 물에 얽매여 있는 현대인에 삶을 의미한다. 개의삶은 무시되는 현대사회에서 눈과 귀 입을 닫고 자신의 감정을 억누르며 버티고 있는 우리 인간의 모습을 보여주고 싶었다. 우리는 어디에서도 그것에 대해 표출하고 위안을 받을 곳이 없다. 단지 묵묵히 참고 버티고 있을 뿐… 나의 작업이 그러한 사람들에게 조금이나마 위안이 되길 바란다.

Iris van Herpen

Transmotion
The term transmotion not only depicts the process of change from one state, form, style or place to another, it is also the visionary perceptions of the seasons and the visual scenes of motion in art and literature. In parallel to Iris van Herpen’s drive to visualise the invisible, her quest to question reality and urge to explore the realms of impossibility, the project aims to narrate the process that ushers change, to materialise an unconscious state of meditation.

Meditation
file festival
The sound transforms and shapes the image of waves sinking inside. The reproduced media, when compressed and suppressed, provide more possibilities of thinking and choices than the values contained in its own form. Through these processes, “Meditation” can be the right tool for meditation.

Wayne McGregor

Autobiography
Autobiography is an abstract meditation on aspects of self, life and writing, a non-linear approach to a life story refracting both remembered pasts and speculative futures. McGregor worked with dancers from his company in 2017 to create choreography from old writings, personal memories, pieces of art and music that have been important in his life. From these elements, 23 sections of movement material were created, reflecting the 23 pairs of chromosomes of the human genome. The choreographic events from the 23 sections were then fed into an algorithm based on McGregor’s genetic code.

Hopper Meditations

“Hopper Meditations is a personal photographic response to the work of the American painter, Edward Hopper. I have always loved the way Hopper’s paintings, with an economy of means, are able to address the psychological mysteries and complexities of the human condition.”

Rise and Fall
Fiona Tan explores storytelling, memory, and the part they play in the formation of identity throughout this exhibition of five video installations, various associated sketches and one single-channel video. Rise and Fall (2009), elongated projections onto two large, side-by-side screens, is a wordless meditation, set to music, of a woman no longer young but still conscious of her looks; she was clearly a beauty in her youth. As the video proceeds we gather that the young woman pictured on the second screen is the memory of her younger self. They often move through domestic activities (sleeping, bathing, dressing) in parallel; this is inter-cut with scenes of violently rushing water (shot at Niagra Falls, it turns out). It’s a hackneyed metaphor – the water’s endless surging as an image of time’s relentless uni-directionality – but in Tan’s hands that doesn’t seem to matter; she creates extraordinarily emotional work out of simple stories and well-worn themes.

Шахира Хаммад
Asemic Forest – Westbahnhof Train Station

Dieses Projekt stellt meine Diplomarbeit für das Postgraduiertenprogramm „Übermäßig“ an der Fachhochschule Wien 2012 dar. Wir wurden gebeten, uns einen neuen Bahnhof für Wien vorzustellen, der den bestehenden Westbahnhof entweder modifizieren oder ersetzen würde. Ich entschied mich dafür, das bestehende Gebäude beizubehalten, es aber mit Strukturen zu kontaminieren, die eine Komplexität ausdrücken würden, die jetzt fehlt. Meine Intervention war sowohl von der Natur als auch von der Kultur inspiriert und beabsichtigt, über ihre polemischen Eigenschaften hinaus das zurückzubringen, was in der Wissenschaft als spontane Ordnung bezeichnet wird. Dies ist keine Störung im gesunden Menschenverstand, obwohl sie dieses Aussehen haben könnte. Es ist offensichtlich eine Reaktion gegen übermäßigen Rationalismus und Rationalisierungen. Ja, es ist übertrieben, aber im Wesentlichen versucht es nichts anderes, als die in der Natur vorhandenen Komplexitäten in das städtische Gefüge zu bringen. In gewisser Weise ist mein „Projekt“ nicht wirklich ein „Projekt“, da ich das, was ich mir vorgestellt hatte, fast von selbst „natürlich“ entstehen ließ und nicht nur äußere, sondern auch innere Realitäten zum Ausdruck brachte. Wir könnten sagen, dass dies vielleicht ein epimethisches Werk ist, im Gegensatz zu Promethean, dh ein Werk, in dem das Denken danach kommt. Das Verhältnis zwischen Ursache und Wirkung ist also kreisförmig und nicht linear. Alles in allem ist dies eine architektonische Meditation über Auch die Zeit, da die Strukturen, die ich mir vorgestellt habe, Metamorphose, Zeitablauf, Veränderung, Vergänglichkeit und sogar Verfall widerspiegeln… Themen, die wiederum von herkömmlichen Architekturen vernachlässigt werden. Wenn das Chaos seiner negativen Konnotationen beraubt wird, haben wir vielleicht wieder die Chance, die positiven Aspekte der sogenannten „spontanen Ordnung“ zu erreichen.
