data.anatomy [civic] audiovisual installation by Ryoji Ikeda

[VIDEO] Audiovisual installation. KRAFTWERK [Berlin] Germany. 19/04 – 01/05, 2012
metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA vía Raum
MUMA is an extraordinary location for exhibitons, performances, concerts and other events. Its purpose is to unify Best Practice and Utopia by providing space for all kinds of art, advancing the collaboration between various disciplines and linking creative people virtually as well as physically across the globe. In this context we present the cold, massive, impressive and wonderful work by Ryoji Ikeda, Japanese, living in Paris. The articulation and presentation of these data, crossing big screens, with the addition of a clever choice of music, it is a spectacle, in a context as incredible as that of MUMA, which as other times with the work of this Japanese, you feel the need to go immediately to Berlin. Hat tip!

Finding beauty in complex mathematical data is essentially at the heart of one of the latest art/car collaborations. Japanese digital composer and artist Ryoji Ikeda has translated the entire data of the new Honda Civic into an audiovisual installation with intriguing results.

Daniel Libeskind. Directed by Hillman Curtis, Edited by Hillman Curtis & Kristin Bye, Produced by Amanda Ice and Hillman Curtis.

One of the best Artist Series experiences I’ve had so far. Daniel is a special person, full of depth and positivity…blessed with a gift. Every now and then you come across someone who seems perfectly suited for their position in the world… you can’t imagine them doing anything but what they do, and Daniel is one of those people.

Huesopiel 2.0. por TRASHFORMACIONES

Hat Gallery [VAL] 26/04 - 15/06/2012
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA
Hat Gallery continues to open the hat and invites you to the opening of its next exhibition "Huesopiel 2.0", created by the collective Trashformaciones to be held on Thursday 26 April at 20.00h.

Under the leadership of the Montoya brothers, the group Trashformaciones presents a visceral proposal half way between sculpture installation and architecture, a material-based dialogue full of modular acrobatics and referential objects. Inspired by the theories of Baudelaire, who advocated that modern artists are those who choose the topics for their art from trash and rubble, the Montoya brothers create works which, as all contemporary art, emerge from the...

Henrik Vibskov — How to Fashion Art

by Gestalten [VIDEO]
metalocus, LUIS TERRAIN
Art, Design, VIDEO, Recommendations
To describe Henrik Vibskov as merely a fashion designer would be a vast understatement. As an artist, passionate musician, innovative stage designer, and head of his trendsetting eponymous fashion label he is at the vanguard of a new generation of creative multi-taskers. Gestalten.tv visited him in his Copenhagen studio for a chat about music, colors, the first comprehensive monograph of his remarkably versatile creative vision and (not) being your typical Scandinavian designer.

Henrik Vibskov is the first comprehensive presentation of his remarkably multifaceted creative vision. Many of the enlightening texts and project descriptions are written by Vibskov himself. They offer deeply personal insight into the twisted yet tantalizing worlds that he creates on a daily basis.

Forty years ago Henrik Vibskov was born in the backcountry of Denmark. Ten years ago he founded his fashion label...

Unnamed soundsculpture

The body – constant and indefinite at the same time – »bursts« the space already with its mere physicality, creating a first distinction between the self and its environment. Only the body movements create a reference to the otherwise invisible space.

The basic idea of the project is built upon the consideration of creating a moving sound sculpture from the recorded motion data of a real person. For our work we asked a Laura Keil, a berlin based dancer to interpret a musical piece – Kreukeltape by Machinenfabriek – as closely as possible with the movement of her own body. She was recorded by three depth cameras (Kinect), in which the intersection of the images was later put together to a...
