“Sixth film in a series of works that responds to a strict protocol: the sunset is filmed with a video camera but without any lens. Every time progress is made in image resolution and a new camera brought to the market, the film is shot once again. This process will meet its critical point when the resolution of the image overpasses the capacity of human perception.”

Waiting for Bárðarbunga – François Quévillon

“Waiting for Bárðarbunga is made of hundreds of video sequences which are presented according to the evolution of a statistical model that integrates data about the state and activity of the computer that presents them : temperature of components, fan speed and energy consumption.”

“As gamers die in a public video game server of a modified version of Counter-strike, a popular online first person shooter, the electronic solenoid valves dispense a small amount of fake blood. The trails left down the wall create a physical manifestation of virtual kills, bridging the two realities. The title is inspired by the Telefon Tel Aviv song of the same name.” – from pietmondriaan

“… is a series of custom printed circuit boards that intercept and log data from it’s surrounding.

Information is processed but the sculpture never shares its findings.”

cosmos by semiconductor [2014]

“…made from one year’s worth of measurements of the take up and loss of carbon dioxide from the forest trees, collected from the top of a 28m high flux tower located nearby in Alice Holt Research Forest.” – from creativeapplications

Christian Andersson – ’9 was 6 if’ (2005)

“Two chairs change in colour every 4th minute. What looks like two ordinary chairs on display, are in fact two totally modified replicas holding an internal water system. The changing temperature of the water affects the surface of the chairs, coated with heat-reacting paint. When the chair is cold, it is black, but when heated up it turns white.” – from pietmondriaan

‘Recorded Delivery’

A sound activated tape recorder travels overnight through the UK Post Office. The dictaphone automatically edits the 15 hour journey down to a 72min recording, capturing only the significant sounds right up until the parcel is signed for at the end, where it is to be exhibited in a self storage building.” – from pietmondriaan

Olia Lialina “Summer”

“Here is a frame-by-frame animation of a young woman on a swing. But each of these frames is hosted on a different server belonging to their friends. This animation loop of twenty-five frames, which is the frequency per second of a video sequence, may be fluid one day. But the jerkiness in the image today speaks of the thousands of kilometres that are being travelled at the speed of light, or almost, so the carefree young girl may continue to swing. She is swinging via the use of submarine cables and satellite feeds…” – from

vertical cut – jeppe hein, 2014

“The work consists of a mirror that functions normally, except for a section in the middle which ripples the image. It is precisely this imperfection that makes the art work. Viewers who approach seem to disappear, as though caught in turbulence. One thinks of the passing through the mirror scene in Orpheus by French director Jean Cocteau…” – from

1984 – Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, 2014

“Nineteen Eighty-Four,” is an interactive display that shows house address numbers extracted from Google Street View images. The numbers have an immense variety of fonts, colours, textures and styles, as they were scanned by Google from the front doors of buildings from all over the World. The display writes over 22 billion different combinations of the number 1984; these combinations change automatically at a speed that can be set using a dial, from one different image every ten seconds to ten images per second. At the default speed, it will take around 1,000 years for the same combination of images to be repeated.”

Kintsugi (or kintsukuroi) is a Japanese method for repairing broken ceramics with a special lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum. The philosophy behind the technique is to recognize the history of the object and to visibly incorporate the repair into the new piece instead of disguising it. ” – from colossal

For example pressing a middle C key, will play a matching C note from Nigerian sports radio or a Brazillian Bassa Nova station.”
