Archives for the Month of July, 2011

Semiconductor (Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhard)

  Semiconductor (Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhard) Work from Inferno Observatory. “Inferno Observatory is a multi-channel moving image work that explores our complex relationship with natural phenomena. During a fellowship at the Mineral Sciences Laboratory in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, Washington DC, Semiconductor unearthed a 16mm volcano film archive shot by volcanologists […]

Felice Varini

Felice Varini Work from porta trapezi aperti. “My field of action is architectural space and everything that constitutes such space. These spaces are and remain the original media for my painting. I work „on site“ each time in a different space and my work develops itself in relation to the spaces I encounter. I generally […]

Min Jeong Seo

Min Jeong Seo Work from Summe im Augenblick. “…There are different ways for the perception and understanding of time. Time is a construct but also a factor governing our social life. In physics time can only be now-time, it simply is present. In contrast subjective experience of time may be very different. For example the […]


Zimoun Work from his oeuvre “Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of curiously collected material, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying […]

Bobby Scheidemann

Bobby Scheidemann Work from Nothing to Hide. “I compose self-portraits to explore the creative framework of gesture within the photograph. The images are depicting different tropes that serve as a canvas of visual influence — a mash up of autobiographical experiences and historical imagery. To reference (by referencing) myself as the picture taker in the […]

Aaron Graham

Aaron Graham Work from his oeuvre. Graham has work in Keepin’ it Real @ Hungryman Gallery in Chicago until mid-August. “With the internet and digital media gaining increasing influence on the current generation of young artists, more works tend to have some representation in cyberspace as intangible objects. Some art today can only be accessed […]

Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys

  Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys Work from Objects as Friends. “The Belgian artists Jos de Gruyter (*1965 in Geel, lives in Brussels) und Harald Thys (*1966 in Wilrijk, lives in Brussels) celebrate slowness and the absurd in their videos and photographs. Their compellingly atmospheric video installations are characterized by an extreme elongation of […]

Sandy Smith

Sandy Smith Work from Computer Installations. “For Computer Installations, including the obsolescent beauty of “Mauritian Sunset”, pictured below, he took old computer monitors, donated by his alma mater, the Glasgow School of Art, and turned them into gorgeous large-scale installation pieces. Eye-grabbing from the front and equally intriguing from the back. I love the “technology behind […]

Peter Happel-Christian

Peter Happel-Christian Work from Ground Truth. “In the context of meteorology, ground truth is information gained by a meteorologist about an extreme weather event from an eyewitness in close proximity to the actual event. The meteorologist learns the ground truth while viewing radar generated graphics of the event on a computer screen. The eyewitness account […]

Daniel Buren

Daniel Buren Work from his exhibition at Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. “…Daniel Buren develops a sequence of site-specific interventions for the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden that engage with Hermann Billing’s neoclassicist building. The wall-high structures decisively alter our perception of the architecture and, by interacting with light, color, and reflections, create impressive spatial sensations of the rooms in […]
