VORMIDABLE: Shrink & Conversations20.05.2015 - 25.10.2015
Vormidable - Museum Beelden aan Ze
Den Haag (NL)
Shrink 01995 - Two large, transparent plastic sheets and a device that gradually sucks the air out from between them leave the body (in this case the artist himself) vacuum-packed and vertically suspended. The transparent tube inserted between the two surfaces allows the person inside the installation to regulate the flow of air. As a result of the increasing pressure between the plastic sheets, the surface of the packed body gradually freezes into multiple micro-folds. For the duration of the performance the person inside moves slowly and changes positions, which vary from an almost embryonic position to one resembling a crucified body.
Conversations 02012 - A couple of vibrating chairs are slowly moving and turning randomly through the space. They seem to search and reject each other with soft humming sounds. When a visitor passes by or sits down, the chairs hesitate and then carefully try out different patterns. The patterns are not designed; it is a self-organizing system where new compositions and new behavior arises spontaneously through the duration of the installation.Read More
Micro Events13.05.2015 - 25.05.2015
Théâtre Les Salins
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.Download pdf
FIELD RECORDINGS - INTERACTIVE SOUND-INSTALLATION & PERFORMANCE02.05.2015
't Zand 34, 8000 Brugge (B)
The upheaval after the Great War in an interactive performance. Sound rises from the earth: rustling, murmuring… echoes of battle, but also voices and snatches of music. As visitors move through this installation, the sounds retreat. Wherever humans go, the music hushes to a murmur. This interactive sound installation, created by Anneleen de Causmaecker, Annelies Van Parys and Peter Verhelst, is brought to life by the live performance of Els Mondelaers and Isabelle Balsa. Cellist Arne Deforce plays the prelude.
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.

Beyond the Buzz, Minneapolis College of Art and Design
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.
