These five portraits (giclée prints on canvas) were made by Martin Fojtek and then hand finished with acrylic paint by Cristian Del Risco, making each and every photograph a real original. Both artists worked independently on them with very little influence on each other. The final results are a very interesting combination of minimalistic black and white portraits (two Arabic, Belgian, Italian and Czech personalities, all with particular emotional expression) and colored acrylic ‘J.M.Basquiat’ style paintings.

Gail Albert Halaban : ‘Out My Window’ Series (Photography)

::

Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Rear Window’ comes readily to mind when you look at Gail Albert Halaban’s large color photographs. Most depict tall New York apartment buildings viewed from a high window opposite.

Initially, these images resemble formal studies in which architectural grids create syncopating, all-over visual rhythms. Then you notice that there are people in some of the apartments. None of them are doing anything exciting. There is no sex or violence. But there is something compelling about being able to see into the private worlds of ordinary people. The voyeuristic, slightly melancholy effect recalls certain paintings by Edward Hopper. Halaban also took pictures of people while in their apartments with them, and these have a poignant intimacy. They resemble photographs by Philip-Lorca diCorcia. One breathtaking example shows a woman wrapped in a bath towel sitting on the edge of her bathtub and gazing out through glass walls over the city. While the photographs shot from distant windows suggest a kind of surveillance, in fact the artist collaborated with her subjects and asked them to pose and position themselves in their homes for the camera. So they are a form of portraiture. Scale is important too. Because the people are so tiny in proportion to the whole picture, there is an expansive effect. And for the same reason, there is a sense of social amplitude: so many buildings, so many people, so many stories in the big city.. ~ [ Extract : The New York Times – Art in Review – Ken Johnson ]

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]

Jordan Tull explores the exchange between artwork, site, and viewer through sculpture and installation. Tull has produced site-specific sculpture responding to architectural settings throughout Portland, OR. His object-based sculptures explore structural and perceptual phenomenon through geometric abstraction and allusive metaphor. Tull’s current work advances for the development of new spatial languages experienced within the context of contemporary architecture and sculptural discourse. Through technology, collaboration and experimentation Tull creates radical asymmetries, ordering systems and dynamic geometric progressions as applied to site-specific contexts and computer-generated models. Tull’s works aim to establish an alternative perceptual approach to spatial applications through the employment of computer-aided fabrication technology and space manipulation.

Candas Sisman : ‘EFF-LUX’ (Audiovisual installation)

::

Audiovisual installation for 15 differently tuned pianos and video.

::

::

Duration : 21 mins
Visuals : Candas Sisman
Music : Egidija Medeksaite
Electronic music festival “Jauna Muzika”

::

Visual artist Candas Sisman (Turkey) and Lithuanian composer Egidija Medekšaitė present their collaboration work – audiovisual piece EFF-LUX. According to the author’s this work is their attitude to the daily process, which are made by humans sometimes as machines or with special attitude (hand craft). During the piece, the visual information transforms from mechanical forms to linear movements. The music is played by computer recorded 15 differently tuned Steinway pianos. For composer it is like characters of the different weavers, which are knitting their own melodies, using the same pitches, but structures and lines of melodies all the time are in rotation. Melodies as the 15 pianos gather to one structure and sometimes their splits to 15 different lines. The tempo of the music during the piece becomes three times slowly. Music is based on minimalist composition technique and repeating loops.

Involved with spur of the moment event, he incorporates abstract narrative language, containing a naivety and simplicity in contradiction with the commotion and ideology of life in general. These ‘events’ that emerge are tossed into the open by passing them through an emotional and perceptual filter of data and situations in the external world without preponderance. They’re a momentary/flow related audiovisual process People start recognizing they are nothing when depth of their awareness enhances. Its the nothingness within the most intricate details that allow for his complex simplicity.
