To Be Reproduced is an interactive video installation that revisits the classic painting Not to be Reproduced a work made in 1937 by the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte. The installation reflects on the pervasiveness of virtual spaces that have become an integral part of our daily social lives, and the way data traces are used to build sophisticated reproductions of the user.

In To Be Reproduced the viewer enters a hybrid space where the physical and the virtual world are closely intertwined. Positioned in front of the mirroring plane the viewer is enveloped in a virtual space where it meets a faceless digital reproduction of itself. As other participants are mirrored correctly the viewer takes on the role of the person depicted in Magritte’s painting.

This uncanny representation of the faceless user in a graphical point cloud refers to the voyeuristic nature of modern communication culture and to the data traces that are used to generate sophisticated consumer profiles. Instead of depicting people by mimicking nature, models are in-formed by analyzing metadata.

Kimchi and Chips create phantoms of light in the air, crossing millions of calibrated beams with their work Light Barrier, 2014. The light installation creates floating graphic objects which animate through space as they do through time.

A fascination with natural light drove the technique of the impressionist painters, they explored new qualities of colour and the trail of time. Kimchi and Chips' study of digital light discusses a new visual mechanic, their installation adding to the visual language of space and light. As the artist's inquiry deepens, brush strokes become descriptive like code, detailing reality and allying light with canvas.

Light Barrier was co-commissioned by FutureEverything and the British Council. It premiered at New Media Night Festival, Nikola-Lenivets 4–6 June 2014.

EPILOG is an interactive room installation applying light, sound and haze. By immersing into a 25-minute constantly transforming world of moving images and sounds, you are invited to swing into interaction by physically replying to the moving patterns – either on your own or together with others.

An interactive floor projection reacting to your movements in real time gets the visitor moving and, through the movement creating three-dimensional spaces made of light.

Tracking cameras, fog and a smooth double-projection are spawning searchlights, reactive light walls and rays bouncing off your body.

Each of the eleven scenes follows a unique principle: Whether you are chased by a simulated, abstract school of fish, or your movements brand into the fog and leave behind a swath out of light. Real time generated sound illustrates the movements and intensifies the immersive experience.

Introduction

A vertical flag of fabric is stroked by the wind, displaced by curves aof air pressure, swinging back and forth. As it sweeps, it extrudes a trail of light which draws a moon floating in space. The flag renders this moon from another reality, the silk surface acts as a boundary between 2 realities, intermediating the laws of the 2 realms.

Inspired by the 2 moons of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 and the flags of space travel, the artists present a portal into another existence where another moon orbits. This other place is made material by the fabric of the flag.

Long exposure photography trades the dimension of time for a dimension of space, extruding the moon into existence on a set of photographic prints, the technology capturing a painting, enacted by the details of the wind.

Lunar Surface begins a new line of enquiry for drawing into the air for studio Kimchi and Chips, forming artistic collaborations between technology and nature. The fabric is tracked by a 3D camera whilst a projector replays a response onto it according to its evolving shape.

I’ve become curious about how individuals would feel when they could not get to see familiar objects any longer. Incandescent lamps have been forgotten among people. They are replaced with the other things due to some logical reasons, and regulations have kept them from being produced in more numbers. Well, I did not use incandescent lamps that much. Although I did not cherish them that much, I am giving my farewell to those who are becoming hard to be found.

Dear vvvvsers, I am pleased to introduce to you one of the first (if not the only) video-clip production in Greece, made by free and open-source software. Specifically, in order to complete the project vvvv and DirectX11/HLSL were used for both the initial composition of the image and the addition of visual effects. Furthermore, Blender was utilized for the editing, post-processing and final export of the film.

Visitors pass different zones while moving through the exhibition.
The Intro shows illustrations of 8 Objects representing the technologies to be discussed in the upcoming „TING“-Debates combined with contradictory quotes reflecting on the relationship between democracy
and technology.

Then a basic wooden block, analog to the digital pixel, becomes a haptic tool for visitors to trigger digital interactions within the exhibition and to cast their votes within the TING.

Moving further a section with iconic objects serves as case study area, that demonstrates that the value and impact of the technologies behind can be interpreted in many positive and negative ways.
There is not one meaning or truth, but many possible uses and impacts.

The centerpiece of the exhibition is the grand amphitheater-like space of the TING

The completely projected 400 sqm space interactively tells the story of the Kingdom Wu.

Visitors are immersed in a 15-minute story about the rise of the Kingdom of Wu during the Spring and Autumn Period between 514–496 BC. We created a unique visual style as a mix of cinematic martial arts scenes shot in Shanghai combined with paint-style animations.

The linear storytelling is enhanced with interactive elements that reinforce the visitors’ feeling of being transported back in time, away to king HelV’s coming into power, his fight for hegemony, the victory at the battle of Boju and other great legends of that period.

Hyperbook is a low cost, interactive media station, inspired by the MIT “NeverEnding Drawing Machine”, that turns a book into a support for different types of content unrelated to its paper nature.

Hyperbook was realized with the multipurpose toolkit vvvv by the students of the “Creative Coding and Video Music Course” of the Academy of Fine Arts, Urbino Italy.

Students: Alessandra Giannotta, Caterina Lani, Stefano Mancini, Qin Qi. Professor: Davide Riboli.
