46°41'58.365" lat. -91°59'49.0128" long. @ 30m by David Bowen refers to the source location where the water surface data was collected for this series. An autonomous aerial vehicle hovering 30 meters above the surface of Lake Superior scanned the water. For this series of five, the vehicle was deployed to the same location on different days and in different weather conditions. The collected data was used to carve a series of cylindrical three-dimensional models in clear acrylic with a CNC router. This process captured the dynamic movements of the waves and ripples from a specific time and location and suspended this ever-changing water pattern into a static transparent form.Read More
Burning Ice #9 - Kaaitheater16.02.2016 - 20.02.2016
During BURNING ICE #9 Lawrence Malstaf presents an adapted version of Tipping Point. A large water-filled disc carefully balances on top of a steel support, tilting up and down. An air bubble slowly travels around, disrupting the disc’s balance.
Malstaf shows how small changes can generate enormous consequences. The findings of the Norwegian Polar Institute were his starting point. They investigated the impact of human activity on the arctic ecosystem. Air and water are the main elements in this vast yet delicate thermodynamic process.
Artefact: Up in the Air09.02.2016 - 21.02.2016
In the installation Event Horizon dust particles are suspended in a beam of light that is slowly scanning a dark room. Visitors are invited to wear a protective gas mask and witness the silent complexity of matter with millions of fragments forming a temporary micro-universe. Conscious of one’s own breath, matter is taking centre stage, dancing in the light and airstreams of the black box with remote sounds of human masses and activity filling the otherwise empty room.
With environmental challenges, population growth and our ever-expanding needs in mind, the brothers Malstaf sought a way to zoom out and contemplate our temporary existence on spaceship Earth. The aim: ‘Making a work with a minimum amount of material and the biggest possible spatial impact.’Read More

WYSIWYG? OR WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT WHAT YOU GET?!
Media Arts Exhibition
Digital or analog? New or old technologies? How does the medium affect the way reality is perceived and represented ? How do we want to perceive reality or how can we? Real and virtual reality, facts and fiction are today inseparable. There are unlimited possibilities for the creation of images. Within the context of art and technology we re-examine the essence of representation and perception, and this by means of creating immersive , interactive and kinetic works. The selected installations approach in different ways the relationships between registration and medium, projection and content, perception and interpretation.

Rue du Grand Hospice | Grootgodshuisstraat
With the video installation Listen To Me, the Brussels-based sound artist Stijn Demeulenaere reminds us that we do not just listen with our ears, but with our whole being. On every screen, a person is absorbed in listening to sound extracts that we cannot hear. It is left to the imagination to decode the subtle expressions of the filmed faces …
