We recover our nature to be a future human being.
MONOFILM is a an art collective consisting of the dancer WOOGURU and the new media choreographer Antoni Rayzhekov, we blend emergent technologies with dance within a reactive sound and visual scenography.
Dominic Harris’s projection piece for the Grand Palais has been selected as part of Art Paris 2015 and will be showcased during the vernissage on Wednesday 25 March 2015 from 6pm – 12am. It will then be shown from Thursday 26 until Saturday 29 March 2015 during the same hours.
Harris’s ‘A Concentric Study’ is a geometric intervention of light and form that distorts and explores the historically rich Beaux-Art façade of the Grand Palais. The interplay between the projected patterns creates a playful yet dynamic tension to the underlying architecture and the historical gravitas of the surrounding area. In an evolution of traditional optical illusions, the patterns meander between calming geometric studies and more dramatic visual movements, accompanied throughout by a musical score that is integral to the overall experience. Both the visual and sonic elements of Harris’s installation alter the viewer’s perception of the Grand Palais so that its architecture takes on a new narrative. Renowned as a seminal historical building in Paris, the light projection temporally transforms the architecture and endows it with a presence that speaks of futurity.
Harris will also be exhibiting further works at Art Paris 2015 with the Sarah Myerscough Gallery in booth B17.
Satellites are used for almost all modern achievements, from communication or navigation systems to environmental monitoring and military purposes. By now there are approximately 3000 satellites in orbit, about 1000 of those are still operating. The majority of these objects revolve our planet in 200km to 2000km height, with an orbital period of 90 to 130 minutes.
Despite their overall application, we hardly notice their existence. From earth they are visible only in the rare case, that they are in the perfect angle to reflect the sun. All necessary data about the positions and paths of satellites is known though, as it is crucial for determining free spots for new satellites. Accessing this information allows the drawing machine SATELLITEN to keep record of the sheer amount of satellite flyovers in regard to its own location. In a square of approximately 10cm², the machine traces their lines in real time until the far away object leaves our horizon again.
SATELLITEN uses its own position as starting point and old maps of the area as a base for its drawings. For a long time, maps and atlases used to be one of the only sources for geographical knowledge. Now the paths of the satellites start to form on top of the familiar neighbourhoods, thus setting the normally invisible traffic in relation to our usual habitat. But as time passes the lines of the satellites will obliterate the well-known streets and cities, overwriting not only the information the map originally contained but as well the marks left by the preceding satellites. In the long run only a black square will be left, it is the remains of this rather parasitic machine: a temporal window, showing the seemingly arbitrary but highly structured activities in lower earth orbit.
Antrum - is a spatio- graphical interactive installation, created for Life Zone exhibition in Center MARS.
Authors: Tatiana Plakhova ,Mathrioshka ( Eduard Haiman , Vadim Smakhtin ), Sergey Kasich. With the participation of Elena Zhdanova and Gleb Storozhik.
The installation looks like a grotto of the membrane, the surface of which is inhabited by strange creatures. Its complex structure causes association with living creatures, space objects and architectural constructions.
In this frontier world pure mathematical abstractions are mixed with natural shapes, resulting in formation of newentities. Viewers can push the membrane and try to contact with them.
Antrum - ( lat.) Cave, grotto, the threshold of something.
Excerpt from "The Eidolon Splits" with recorded touch interaction.
The Eidolon Splits explores the construction of human form and identity within a narrative realm. It reflects and embodies the screen as a portal and contact surface both as a physical and a virtual device.
