Through The Green Fuse

July 1st, 2009

“Through The Green Fuse” is series of photos by Robert Buelteman, actually they are photograms. His technique is quite complex and dangerous, it’s based on Kirlian photography. He places flowers and leaves on a color transparency film, on top of that he lays plexiglas with a sheet of metal in between, floating in a liquid silicone. Then he hits everything with an electric pulse which causes the coronas and outlines to appear on the film. The last step he needs to do, is hand-painting it with a white light coming from an optical fiber. It can take up to 150 attempts to get this right. You can read more about it at Wired.
The results are just stunning.

Rave Nature

December 12th, 2008

Rave Nature by Maarten Vanden Eynde.

Rave Nature was build for the Festival Cement (=concrete), a cultural event that takes place every year in Maastricht. We developed a stage in the ‘Enci-forrest’ near the marl quarry of the Factory Enci. They produce concrete and are the main sponsor of the “Cement Festival”. Their 20 years lasting digging contract causes a lot of problems for the natural environment. The stage could only stay during the Festival. At night the public came by bus and was confronted with a disco lightshow and the pounding rave-song “Move your ass” by Scooter.
