“DEVELOP A NEGATIVE INTO A POSITIVE PICTURE”
Phygital way of designing that captures a momentum of transition between digital and physical worlds.
Digital and sustainable fashion with respect to materiality propose no-waste patterning that uses the technique of cut-ups to be assembled into a garment. Inspiration comes from the process of deconstructing historical garments and unexpected assemblage.
Electronic images of black and white alternating structures and contrasts are projected on a cuboid object in space. Passing through different metamorphosis, the abstract image themes gather momentum in the three-dimensional. Structural unities of image, sound and movement deconstruct the shape of the cube – images and sounds are mutually dependent and explore relations between form and meaning beyond medial image fronts.

Our Time (2016) is the latest large-scale installation by United Visual Artists investigating our subjective experience of the passing of time. How long is a moment? At what rate does time actually pass? The work joins a series of kinetic sculptures that began with Momentum (2013); an installation designed as a ‘spatial instrument’ that was to reveal the relationship between expectation and perception when intersected with a physical space.
Our Time defines a physical environment where pendulums swing at a pace apparently unhindered by the laws of nature and where no single time measurement applies. The installation combines movement, light and sound as a multi-sensory, multi-dimensional canvas the visitor can enter. Pendulums swing, each to their own rhythm, as time flows through the grid. With light tracing the path and sound its echo, the passing of time becomes almost palpable.
The sleek line work of Guiran’s sculpture, inspired by calligraphy and Japanese haikus, evokes an imaginary writing that unfolds in space. Guiran works predominately in glass, drawing and photography. “…Consistent and deliberate, his work is allied with the essential, between matter and spirit, method and momentum, humans and nature. It imposes its decisive presence by leaving us with thefeeling of harmonious wholeness..”

o what extent does the quality of movement of the virtual world influence real sequences of human movement? Will the real world of the 21st century assume via nanotechnology attributes of the virtual world? Are there still significant differences between a body that is made of synthetic material and warmed artificially and the deep glow of trillions of living cells? VIVISECTOR is an examination of the different speeds of people/nature and technology/information society and of their acceleration; an experiment to overcome the space-time continuum in the real world. It breaks the linearity of movement and in doing so shows the absurdity of momentum. Based on the video-technological concept of the moving body-projection that made D.A.V.E. an international hit, VIVISECTOR now goes one step further: the exclusive concentration on video light and video projection produces a new stage aesthetic in which light, body, video and acoustic space form an unprecedented unity.
