36 ventilators whirl 4.7m3 of packing chips

Latest installation from Zimoun uses simple materials to display turbulance - video embedded below:

From Creative Applications:

Opening this Saturday (April 26) at the Art Museum of Lugano in Switzerland, 36 ventilators, 4.7m³ packing chips is the new installation by Zimoun, the Bern-based artist known for his architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Zimoun yet again extends his installation inventory. Converting nine of the museum’s towering window spaces into ‘ventilation chambers’ (four ventilators are installed in each window) and filling them with polystyrene, Zimoun unleashes a perfect ‘plastic storm.’ Congregating into a mass that’s neither solid, gaseous nor liquid, the flakes perform a violent, otherworldy dance. With the phenonema trapped behind glass, we get to watch in wonder from the safety of the outside.

Zimoun is also featured in Creative Application’s new magazine HOLO, which you can find out more here

HUT “Hermitage” by Ethan Hayes-Chute
Artist Ethan Hayes-Chute lives and works in Freeport, Maine & Berlin, Germany. Through paintings, sculptures, large-scale installations and artist’s books, he explores the ideas of self-sufficiency, self-preservation and self-exclusion as models for living. Hayes-Chute’s hut is an accumulation of stuff, the ephemera of the every day. Its materials are found, stitched together, hand-assembled – chair, desk, table, shaving mirror, and coffee mug furnish the cabin’s primary function to house and sustain.

Ai Weiwei made this snake memorial dedicated to the young victims of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake out of backpacks because of the large number of them he saw at schools when he visited the disaster site. Each backpack represents a child who left theirs behind.

“I am interested in ideas of fragility and transience and how these states exist in the architecture of the public and private spaces in which we live. I am inspired by our mental and physical experiences of spaces and buildings as we move through them and/or they change over time. In many ways I see buildings and structures as surrogates for ourselves and use them to investigate and illustrate our human frailties.”

ARart by Kei Shiratori

Augmented Reality project brings classic art to life in charming ways (as well as book illustrations and musical records - video embedded below:

ARART from kei shiratori on Vimeo.

ARART is an application that breathes life into objects. When overlaying ARART onto a well-known masterpiece, a new story will unfold, as if time trapped inside the painting had been stirred alive.
The system of ARART detects the picture which analyzed the image and was registered beforehand at the same time it displays the image of a back camera on a screen as it is.
And display it that a picture of the reality world transforms it by putting a different image on top of one another depending on the image which a system detected.
The pictures to detect are natural drawings, such as not a mark like QR Code but a photograph, and an illustration.
Enjoy a whole new experience by overlaying ARART onto various objects that make up this world.

I thought I encountered this piece independently, but no, Creative Applications found it first, because, well, they’re brilliant … and they have a few more details:

The app was created using Vuforia Augmented Reality SDK and is available from the AppStore for free.

In theory, then, you could try this app out on reproductions you may have.

You can check out the project’s site here (in both English and Japanese) - also, Kei has a Tumblr blog here

[Also, I know designboom created a gif to accompany their entry on this work, pretty much identical to the top one I have made here. No intention of ripping them off, but the guy who posted it {rodrigo db} imitated my post on the Hyper-Matrix post - we’re even]

Chiaroscuro (Étude Op. 3, No.3) by Sougwen 

Installation where drawing and projection meet to create a different experience - video embedded below:

Chiaroscuro (Étude Op. 3, No.3) from sougwen on Vimeo.

Ink on paper | Projection & LEDs | 8ft x 5.5ft | 2012

Chiaroscuro is an installation piece that utilizes light as an artifice of visual perception. It explores the interplay of light and shadow on a dimensional drawing form. Strata of abstract, monochromatic line-work are suspended on a wall, giving off the illusion that lines themselves are extending beyond the flat plane. Coils of light are nested asymmetrically within the form, responding to the variations of sound in the environment and illuminating the surface with a pulsing ambiance. Projected light is mapped onto the exterior from a distance, revealing and obscuring the piece throughout the course of the installation.

Exhibited at “Of Art and Artifice” hosted by Ghostly International at The Art Directors Club Gallery in NYC.

Carsten Nicolai - Unidisplay

“The installation unidisplay offers an examination of semiotics and the laws of perception. The work operates with a number of modules of different visual effects that interfere with the viewers’ perception, through optical illusion, jitter, flicker, after-image, movement, complementary colour effect, and so on. The installation unfolds against a long projection wall with two mirror walls on the side thus visually expanding like a universe. The basic visual, made up of sequences, motifs and graphic translations of various units of time measurement acts as a world clock and evokes the intertwining of time, between past, present and future. The installation is created with Derivatice’s TouchDesigner software which has been used for alva noto live performances with a triple-screen projection.” (via)
