rAndom International : “Rain Room at the Barbican”

::

::

Music by Max Richter
Filming by Gramafilm

::

Random International invites you to experience what it’s like to control the rain. Visitors can choose to simply watch the spectacle or find their way carefully through the rain, putting their trust in the work to the test. More than the technical virtuosity necessary for its success, the piece relies on a sculptural rigour, with the entire Curve transformed by the monumental proportions of a carefully choreographed downpour and the sound of water. R.I. are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art. Their experiments come alive through audience interaction and staged performance…

Ryoji Ikeda : ‘data.anatomy [civic]’ – (Audiovisual Installation)

::

::

‘data.anatomy [civic]’ is a new audiovisual installation by Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda, arising from a unique collaboration with Mitsuru Kariya, the development leader of the new Honda Civic car. Exhibited as a 3-screen video projection, the work immerses the viewer in an intricate yet vast audiovisual composition derived from the entire data set of the car. ~ [MUMA (Kraftwerk) Berlin on April 19th 2012]

Paul Prudence : ‘Structure-M.11’ (audiovisual performance)

::

Paul Prudence is an artist and real-time visual performer using generative
and computational methods to create audio responsive visual systems.

::

::

Structure-M.11, a real-time visual performance work, was initiated and completed during Guestroom Maribor – a one month artist residency organised by Pekarna Madalenska Mreže and MKC Maribor in November 2011. Recordings were made of industrial processes, ventilation and water cooling systems, mechanical apparatus in the industrial areas of Maribor, Slovenia. I was also interested in exploring the quasi-musicality of discarded industrial equipment and broken machinery and the inherent percussive sounds they can generate. Based on insinuations of a sound collage/composition, made with these field recordings, real-time visual material was generated denoting activations and operations disassociated from sonic origin – a parallel Universe for these nearly extinct sounds to reside  again. ex

legoman (AntiVJ) : ‘3DESTRUCT’ (Audiovisual Installation)

::

Originally trained as a graphic artist, he now devotes his time to developing a personal language using video and a wealth of projection techniques. His work is characterised by a desire to break out of the traditional formats of video-projection and finding ways to integrate video into the performance space. These ideas are developed and performed in the form of audiovisual performances, installations and scenography. Often being ‘in-situ’, his works are strongly influenced by questions linked to architecture.

Daniel Schwarz : ‘Piece Of Paper’ (Audiovisual Projection)

::

::

Video – Daniel Schwarz
Music – Amon Tobin

::

In a sculptural work, forms built from paper become organic backdrops for undulating pixels in an audiovisual work by Daniel Schwarz. I like that he describes this as partially “non-mapped.” That is, if projection mapping is the use of software to create calculated virtual geometries on which to project, you can also just point a beamer at something that isn’t flat and see what happens. The appeal of projection mapping is to me really about getting away from flat rectangles – not that there’s anything wrong with them, but because it expands the canvas on which digital projection can work. Sometimes, you want perfectly-tuned mappings, but sometimes you actually want distortion and imperfection. It’d be a shame to lose sight of the latter just because of the novelty (and now ease) of the former.
