::

::

‘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]

Erwin Redl : Light Installations (LEDs)

“completely abstract and without content, but the light is so intense and the forms so archetypal that it becomes a mirror for people to project their feelings onto.” Erwin Redl

The Austrian-born Redl is known for his computer-controlled, large-size light installations incorporating light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and optic fibers. Using the abstract visual language of virtual reality, his light installations transform architectural spaces into intense corporeal experiences. Before his work with LEDs, Redl created digital environments on the computer. Seeking a way to immerse the audience in a digital environment, Redl discovered use of LED lights in the large installation format became an environment of its own, a landscape of points on a grid. Light is his medium. [Extract : Wright State University]

The primary medium of Californian artist James Turrell is light. Probably the best-known artist in his field, Turrell’s entire oeuvre since the 1960s has been devoted to exploring the diverse manifestations of this immaterial medium and working towards a new, space-defining form of light art. While light here refers to nothing beyond itself, it causes surface, colour and space to interact and allows viewers to immerse themselves in a mysterious, painterly world. Occupying a central place in James Turrell’s oeuvre is the Roden Crater, an extinct volcano in the Arizona desert which the artist has been transforming into an observatory since 1974.

Building upon the cosmic aspects of this quiet, meditative place, Turrell is creating the worldwide largest museum installation he has made to date at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, producing a light-filled space of experience in the tradition of his Ganzfeld Pieces. Making full use of the adaptable architecture system of the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg – unique within the German museum landscape – his installation will be an exploration of space and light: immaterial and material at once. The timelessness and fascination of James Turrell’s works derives from his incredible skill at capturing fleeting light and giving it the visual presence and tactile density of a physical body.

In 2005 the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson developed a work especially for Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in which the central theme was the visualisation of light waves. Notion Motion, an interactive installation covering 1,500 m2, can be seen again this summer.

Notion Motion by Olafur Eliasson consists of three parts that explore the interaction between water, light and the viewer. Eliasson has created an enchanting work with simple means. He immerses the viewer in a simple and minimal yet overwhelming visual experience created by the interplay of light and water.

Over the past fifteen years Eliasson has built up an impressive body of work consisting of rainbows, sunsets, waterfalls, aromatic walls, mist, beams of light and periscopes. He is considered one of the most important artists of his generation. Since 1995 he has had exhibitions in the world’s leading museums, including his highly acclaimed huge yellow ‘sun’ at Tate Modern in 2003. More recent Eliasson created four man-made waterfalls of monumental scale on the shores of the New York waterfront.
