TELE-PRESENT WATER IN 'BIG BANG DATA'14.03.2015 - 24.05.2015
This installation, tele-present water by David Bowen draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. The wave intensity and frequency collected from a buoy is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure, resulting in a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from this distant unknown location. This work physically replicates a remote experience and makes observation of the activity of an isolated object, otherwise lost at sea, possible through direct communication.
Micro Events - Cinematic Installation13.02.2015 - 22.03.2015
Micro Events is a series of cinematic experiences for one person at a time, each involving a table, a microscope and a small mechanical stage. These tiny worlds on a microscopic scale each have their own soundtrack accompanying visitors along a fragmentary path into the infinitely small, guiding them through a labyrinth of detailed descriptions, questions and unstable verifications.
SHRINK PERFORMANCE05.02.2015 - 07.02.2015
The Shrink-performance will include two Russian and two Norwegian dancers, a large metal scaffold and loads of plastic. The dancers couple up, one Russian and one Norwegian, and vacuum-seal each other; their bodies moving slowly, pausing, changing their pose until they are completely wrapped in plastic and not able to move anymore.
New Installation: Event Horizon30.01.2015 - 01.02.2015
Event Horizon - Dust particles are suspended in a light beam which is slowly scanning a dark room. Visitors can enter wearing a protective mask and witness the silent complexity of matter with millions of fragments forming a temporary micro universe. Remote sounds of human masses and activity fill the otherwise empty room.

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
Exhibition Homo Religiosus08.11.2014 - 31.12.2016
Storgata 95, 9006 Tromsø (NO)
The ongoing exhibition 'Homo Religiosus' is about the spiritual world and the quest for meaning and coherence in life. This is a dimension that art installations and music can help mediate. In art, the existential and religious dimension comes to expression as a type of insight that transcends dispassionate, reason-based knowledge. Perhaps the art can be viewed as a window facing inwards.
Homo Religiosus is produced through collaboration between the visual artist Lawrence Malstaf and Perspektivet Museum.

DE ZEE - SALUT D'HONNEUR JAN HOET23.10.2014 - 19.04.2015
Romestraat 11, 8400 Oostende (B)
The Sea/De Zee is an exhibition that, just like a wave, cannot be pinned down: it builds up, breaks on the shore and leaves traces that the next wave will wash away.
The Sea is an exhibition in dialogue with Ostend, spread out across several locations – a museum, a fishermen’s church, an old cinema, a hotel with sea view and other inspirational places. The Sea is a salut d’honneur to renowned curator Jan Hoet, who wanted to share his ownlast ode to the sea… with grand gestures and little stories.
