CL:0C by LICHTFRONT/GROSSE 8
– A kinetic installation in space –
– Rediscovered time –
G8 LABS of LICHTFRONT/GROSSE 8 are exhibiting their first kinetic installation as part of the Passagen 2013 forum at Interior Design Week in Cologne.
The installation CL:0C is a perpetual motion machine. It is in constant motion and mostly under its own power. In its whirring mutation, it is constantly stimulated by random pulses from its control unit. Such electronic stimulation leads to quiet moments within the functioning and progression of CL:0C itself, but also in the eye of the beholder. The resulting stop-motion effect is no illusion of motion but one of cessation. CL:0K’s tentacles only lie still for a few seconds at a time.
CL:0C operates using elements of light, sound and motion, primarily acting as a kinetic element in space. The unfamiliar use of both analogue and digital aspects changes the whole room. Familiar two-dimensionality is transformed by the 28 elements of CL:0K into a full three dimensions of length, breadth and depth.
During the various phases of the transformation, each of the elements changes its position in space and the way it is perceived in an ostensibly labyrinthine choreography. For brief moments there will be a sense of structure and shape, until CL:0C in its continuing mutation once more discards them.
Unexpected pauses interrupt the mutation and project film stills into a space with no screen. While their vivid colours echo on the retina, the viewer then rediscovers time. Analogue digits extend into all dimensions of the space, awakening in the viewer once more the sense of how quickly time passes – CL:0C.

Imposition - A/V Performance - Excerpt
Live audiovisual performance by electronic musician Edisonnoside and visual artist Daniel Schwarz.
Dark, blurry electronic music and non-linear rhythms meld with hypnotic, abstract visuals, superimposed on a matrix of rods. Image and sound go hand in hand -each influences the other, feeds off the other- and in this fusion, play with the perception of space and reality.

Inspired by the icelandic volcano, which wreaked travel havoc across europe earlier this year,
Joanie Lemercier presents the latest incarnation of its audiovisual mapping project
Painted directly onto a large wall, a wireframed scenery is slowly revealed by gentle light effects.
The audience’s sense are progressively challenged as optical illusions question their perception of space.
This project was initially developed during a onedotzero residency at EMPAC in the USA in April 2010.
The early version of the project was produced in collaboration with AntiVJ and Nicolas Boritch. www.antivj.com/empac

Astronomers assume that The Oort Cloud is a space beyond the confines of the solar system where (believe) born comets. The objects in the Oort Cloud would be gravitationally bound to the Sun, but very weakly, so that other stars, and even the Milky Way itself, can affect and change their orbits.
Oort _Mutants_ is a generative audiovisual work in real time that speculated with the plasticity of a computing environment, decision making, information transfer and contagion.

A Project by OPEN CONSTRUCTS
This project proposes a new way to look at the interweaving of the natural world and urban life through the use of new media and architecture. Rather than trying to manage the relationship between the natural and built environment with computation (and its metaphors) this project sets out to augment the natural world. Thus creating artificial environments that evokes the organic. An architecture that artificially amplifies the experiences of nature that is diminishing in the urban context.
