BOZAR ELECTRONIC ARTS FESTIVAL 201508.10.2015 - 18.10.2015
Art couldn’t be any more in the ‘here and now’ than this installation by David Bowen. Landscape#1 is a realtime streaming of images made by a 3D camera in the Botanical Garden of Meise. The images are built up from more than 250,000 individual pixels and form a 3D model. The colour of the pixels changes from blue to red and green, depending on the distance between the filmed objects and the camera. The change in colour reflects the dynamic of the active three dimensional field and gives the location an artificial tint. In this way the contrast between the natural forms and the digital reproduction of them is brought into focus
Micro Events consists of a series of filmic experiences which can only be experienced by one participant at a time. The setting consists of a table, a microscope and a small mechanical podium. A soundtrack accompanies
the viewer on his journey through a maze of fragments, remains and broken objects. This installation is the result of a collaboration between two artists who share a fascination for small and what at first sight might appear to be insignificant objects, and an interest in our systems of knowledge production. With this installation they question the authority of scientific classification whilst leaving room for surprise at the small and inexplicable.
In a dark room specks of dust are dancing in a ray of light. When you enter the room, you are given a gas mask to put on. With your movements you are contributing to a complex game of silent matter. The work of the Belgian Lawrence Malstaf vacillates between visual art and theatre. His installations and performance art focus on movement, chance, order and chaos. He often creates spaces in which the visitor undergoes a sensory experience. A lot of Malstafs’ projects make use of advanced technology, which is often a source of inspiration as well.
