FILE FESTIVAL GAMES

In “PixelJunk Eden”, players, swing from abstract plant shapes to move about the garden, attacking the six-sided pollen carriers in order to gather the small pollen particles that can turn dormant seeds into activated seeds. The new seeds can be used to create new plants and gain further mobility in the garden.swing from abstract plant shapes to move about the garden, attacking the six-sided pollen carriers in order to gather the small pollen particles that can turn dormant seeds into activated seeds.

failed memories, the 4th selection
doras flame

“In these images I apply the notion or phenomenon of „ lack of time”. When I started to develop the ‘Failed memories’ series, my intention was to examine and involve the notion of time as a factor into my images. To put it more simple, to visualise the factor and importance of time in the mechanisms of the memory, as without time there is no memory.”

PROTOROOM Metamedia Collective

Metapixels
PROTOROOM은 테크놀로지 매체 기반의 키트(KIT)로 작업을 하는 메타미디어 콜렉티브이다. 여기서 키트는 감각하고 사유를 이끄는 메타적 매체로서, 컴퓨팅 매체의 근본적인요소를 직접 감각하는 기회와 함께 생태계의 일부화된 테크놀로지에 대한 사유과 담론을가능하게끔 연결해주는 매개자가 된다. 이를 이라는 주제로 전시, 워크숍 등의 작업으로 풀어내는 연작을 이어가고 있다. 2014년 부터 후니다 킴과 김승범이 활동하고 있다. 최근에는 전시 X 워크샵이란 형식으로 2016년 일본에서 NTT 인터커뮤니케이션센터[ICC] ‘Media Art as an Awareness Filer ’와 백남준아트센터 “우리의 밝은 미래 – 사이버네틱스 환상 “에서 기획전에 참여하였다.

Fotomat
“Fotomat” is een interactieve installatie geprogrammeerd voor de grafische ontwerpstudio NORM (Dimitri Bruni, Manuel Krebs, Ludovic Varone). Het object werkt als een fotohokje volgens de regels van het Archief U.768: het produceert foto’s van 24 x 32 pixels in zwart-wit die worden afgedrukt door een thermische printer. Zo kunnen bezoekers hun gedrukte portret mee naar huis nemen als aandenken aan hun tentoonstellingsbezoek.

PFADFINDEREI STUDIO

Monolithe
Monolith est un travail expérimental non commandé, jouant avec des motifs de pixels irréguliers. Que se passe-t-il lorsqu’un écran présente une disposition non uniforme des pixels? Comment cela influence-t-il notre perception des images et de quelle quantité d’informations visuelles avons-nous même besoin pour franchir la frontière de l’abstrait au figuratif? Pour répondre à ces questions, nous avons créé une sculpture vidéo, qui fait fondre esthétiquement l’écran et le contenu. Dans un jeu entre beauté naturelle et bouleversement technique, les images de bustes classiques se transforment cycliquement en dégradés abstraits et redeviennent des images perceptibles.

Câblé
FILE FESTIVAL
Câblé se compose d’environ 18 000 lampes LED qui symbolisent le transfert de connaissances. Les pixels lumineux individuels se connectent puis disparaissent. Dans un processus de transformation constante, de nouveaux modèles, interrelations et complexités émergent.

STUDIO THEGREENEYL

Apfel
»Apfel« ist ein Spiel ohne Regeln. Es beginnt mit einer Wand, die überall mit einer signalroten Klebefolie bedeckt ist. Die Folie besteht aus Tausenden von kreisförmigen Aufklebern, die in einem schmalen Raster vorgeschnitten sind und darauf warten, von den Besuchern abgezogen und in eine neue Reihenfolge gebracht zu werden. Die Aufkleber und ihr weißes Negativ an der Wand bilden sich ähnlich wie binär codierte Pixel, Ornamente, Nachrichten und Bilder – an der ursprünglichen Wand und weit darüber hinaus: Sie bewegen sich in angrenzende Räume, auf Gesichter und verlassen sogar die Stadt.

Hardwired
FILE FESTIVAL
“Hardwired” consists of around 18,000 LED-lights that symbolize the transfer of knowledge. Individual luminous pixels connect and then disappear. In a process of constant transformation, new patterns, interrelations and complexities emerge.

parallel image
This work consists of 2500 magnetic wire cables that connect an emitter (one square meter made of epoxy resin) that consists of a 50 × 50 grid with photo sensors that have their counterparts in the receiver with a grid of bulbs. Thus the sensors detect the light and transmit in parallel each pixel (“image element”) with its corresponding brightness effect to the light bulb in the receiver. Unlike conventional electronic image transmission procedures, “A Parallel Image” uses a technologically transparent procedure, transmitting to the viewer a correspondence between the real world and its transmission.

Datum

Any pixel in a digital movie file can be described as a point in 6-dimensional Euclidean space [x,y,R,G,B,t]. the rotations in 6-dimensioal space converts curve in form to gradation in colour, colour to motion in time axis, motion to curve and curve to colour. relations beween all of pixels are mathematically conserved through the conversion.
this visual object is “mathematically” digital colour movie data itself as sequence of numbers. it’s a nature of data.

Power Pixels
L’exposition Power Pixels se compose de deux installations de réalité virtuelle génératives et interactives : Complex Meshes 2020 et Oscillations 2020, oeuvre présentée pour la première fois au public. Oscillations 2020 permet une visualisation graphique en 3D de la musique de Michel Redolfi. Une forme d’onde se génère en temps réel selon les fréquences et les amplitudes de la musique. Ces spectres sonores des différents sons de la musique génèrent des paysages imaginaires à l’infini. Image et musique se répondent dans une fusion de nature émotionnelle qui participe à une véritable synesthésie.

The Global Pursuit of Happiness or: The Army of Luck
What would you do with 520 cat figurines? If you’re artist Boris Petrovsky, you might turn them into a massive kinetic sculpture that serves as a sort of pixel-grid display for user-submitted expressions of hope. In his installation The Global Pursuit of Happiness, or: The Army of Luck, Petrovsky arranges 40 rows and 13 columns of the popular Japanese lucky talisman, Maneki Neko (literally Beckoning Cat; aka Lucky Cat, Money Cat), into a golden army of kitsch.

digitalized
“Tron, a cult film from 1982, takes place in two parallel universes: the real and the virtual. Through a laser that converts real people into pixels, the world of Tron appears like a strange foreign world without sun, where androids live surrounded by 3D landscapes. The film has a strong retro character given by the era of production, which coexists with a high-tech nature. Both aspects are the basis of my collection. It consists in androgyn, straight silhouettes out of wool, leather, cotton and lack. Through different techniques I have created cube patterns on the surface of some of the materials. Giving the designs a technical yet minimalist character.”
