I have gathered the bacteria samples from my own body. The bacteria consumed the film surface producing photographic images that are entirely created by a chance. I have been removed from the process but, at the same time, the images are a product of my body; self-portraits.
Inspire on the pantheon dome in Rome, the installation resemblance a cathedral of light, an art piece where the visitor is immersed in a 360º unique experience completely surrounded with light. The dome works as immersive environment when inside and as large scale sculpture when view from outside. The dome is made out of nearly 1000 spheres and LEDs that are used as a pixel, creating a volumetric environment with infinite patterns and possibilities. The Dome was presented at Coachella Music and Art Festival 2013 in Indio, California.
Ballroom Luminoso is a series of six brilliantly lit, color changing chandeliers. Drawing from the formal elegance of the freeway underpass and the cultural currents of the surrounding neighborhoods, the piece transforms a forgotten space into one that connects the community.
Each globe contains a custom-designed LED light fixture, which casts sharply detailed overlapping shadows. The chandeliers paint the underpass with complex color patterns and ethereal lighting thereby refashioning the space into a majestic ballroom-cum-shadow theater. Melding grandeur with a sense of neighborhood rejuvenation, the sculptures weld recycled bike parts into refined forms.
Artist Toyin Odutola’s show “My Country Has No Name” just opened in New York, and her work ranges between gothic self portraits to damaged, blown-up photographic negatives to unfinished-looking silhouettes.
Polish videographer Bartek Hlawka takes us through an exploration of time and space, to a period when 8-bit was the maximum resolution available. Hlawka’s celebration of technology past is delivered for Pixel Heaven 2013, a unique retrospective game conference held in Warsaw. Attendees will exchange stories, compete for high scores, and be treated to a live concert featuring some low-bit beats. From Mario to PacMan, floppy disks to pinball machines, this video utilizes a combination of throwback machines and stop-motion graphics to create a thoroughly pleasant nostalgic video.
