The Way Things Go

April 10th, 2008

The Way Things Go‘ is a film by Peter Fischli & David Weiss, an artists duo from Switzerland. It’s a 30 minutes chain reaction video made in 1987, and definitely worth watching. I can also recommend the video work by Roman Signer.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

And as a little extra, this piece called ‘Masturbine’ by the same artists, part of their Équilibres.

Drop it like it’s hot! Dropclock, a 137 MB screensaver! Every minute of real time is numerically expressed with Helvetica Heavy dropping into water in super slow-motion. Nifty!
I don’t understand why you need an $15 license, maybe you get extra options …

Hemisphere & Ondulation

January 14th, 2008

Here are 2 other installations from the From Spark to Pixel exhibition. First: Hemisphere by Ulf Langheinrich. You had to lie on the floor under a gigantic hemisphere on which abstract animations where projected together with sound and stroboscopes. You had to lie there to experience it, but maybe this video gives you an idea.

An other installation was Ondulation by Thomas McIntosh. It's basically a thin layer of water with some speakers beneath it. Due to the position of the speakers and the different frequencies, amazing wave patterns appeared. The water surface mirrored the light onto the wall so you could see the effect better.
There are some more pictures and 2 videos on the website.


The Replenishing Body

September 6th, 2007

The Replenishing Body‘ is a new project by SHOWstudio … again, great stuff. Make sure that you check out the gallery and the videos.
Here’s their description of the project:

Inspired by Evian’s discovery that it takes the human body six weeks to replenish with water, SHOWstudio has partnered with Evian to devise a fun, interactive video installation that allows visitors to the exhibit to become part of one big replenishing body. Using a 25 section, touch-screen video grid located at the Beyond the Valley gallery boutique on Newburgh St, W1 from 15-22 September, visitors are invited to make a one -second video recording of a close-up section of their body, which will be added to a constantly moving, composite video portrait. Each participant will make their recording on top of a previous one so that the videogrid itself becomes a continually replenishing body.

Ice lolly

July 16th, 2007

ice_lolly.jpgThis is exactly what we need here now, it’s 36° and more. Just a simple Ice lolly by Nienke Vording would be nice. It’s just frozen water flavoured with mint, pepper, lavender, walnut, star anise or other pieces of fruit.

Daniel Gontz

Chivas Regal, a Scotch whiskey, Daniel Gontz dyed some fountains red, green and blue in Bucharest, Romania. Why those colors … I have no clue. You can find some more pictures at tskdesign’s flickr account.

EDIT: Sorry, I should have googled it before posting …
The Romanian artist Daniel Gontz did this. He has more pictures at his blog.

This is what you get when you merge nordic walking and a WallyPower: tu – fin. What a joke!
