A few weeks ago I visit documenta 14 and Skulptur Projekte Münster. Below I present a selection of pieces, from both venues, that I found especially interesting.

The Emergent City. A Life From Complexity to The City of Bits by Stanza

With different electronic parts Stanza has created a network, city-like, installation. The city seems to live its own life; light is blinking, objects are twirling. This does not occur randomly, but is controlled and connected with a network of sensors placed in the city, outside of the gallery space.

Jean-Pierre Gauthier, the artist I wrote about last week, is currently presenting an interactive sound sculpture at Värnhemstorget in Malmö, Sweden. The two meter tall red sculpture has four wheels. By turning them you can generate four different bird-like sounds.

Jean-Pierre Gauthier

The first time I saw a work of Jean-Pierre Gauthier was at transmediale in Berlin 2006 at the Smile Machine exhibition. The very same year Electrohype had the opportunity to include his work Effondrements in the biennial 2006. It is an kinetic sound installation where he uses found everyday objects such as buckets, a laundry […]

Niklas Roy

Niklas Roy describes himself as an inventor of useless things. He is an artist based in Berlin producing really great interesting artworks with electronics, which often have a humoristic absurdity and ironic twist. In this post I only highlight a couple of his projects. You can find more of his works on his website.

I miss add art

I miss add art, the nice FireFox add-on that replaced advertising on websites with curated art. I really like the idea of being fed with art rather than advertisement while browsing the web. add art is a free and open source project developed by the artist Steve Lambert hosted at Eyebeam. It works as an […]

PIKSEL[X] – Kernel Panic! [22-25 November]

Piksel festival in Bergen, Norway is celebrating their 10th anniversary. The festival features installations, performances, symposium, workshops and more. I would have loved to attend the following two workshops: Experimental Electromagnetism with Peter Fleming and Experimental Communication with Ryan Jordan, Jonathan Kemp & John Bowers. More information and program here.

Real Snail Mail

The last decade has drastically changed our idea of availability. Before, we used to get no more than one mail delivery per day, and the only way to be reached by phone was through a wired one. The arrival of the Internet and mobile phones, providing faster and easier ways of communication, has definitely changed […]

Knight of Infinite resignation by Diane Landry

This is my first post about a Canadian artist and I can assure you that many more will follow. My opinion is that Canada is one of the most interesting countries when it comes to electronic art. Canadian pioneers, such as Norman T. White, Doug Back and David Rokeby, have all had a significant impact […]

Carved Air exhibition with Yunchul Kim

  If you happen to be in Berlin this autumn, I highly recommend the exhibition by Yunchul Kim that runs until 1 December at Schering Stiftung. I will unfortunately not be able to attend the exhibition, but am glad that I got the chance to see the works he presented at Edit-Russ-Haus, Oldenburg last summer.

State of Being at Edith-Russ-Haus

In July I went to Oldenburg, Germany. The main reason for my visit was to see the exhibition State of Being at Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art with Yunchul Kim and Kerstin Ergenzinger. It was really nice to be able to see this exhibition. I know the two artists quite well from working with them in […]

Rundgang, Cologne

A trip to Germany and Cologne this summer, with my good friend and German artist Kerstin Ergenzinger as my guide and companion, gave me the great opportunity to visit Rundgang –  a yearly student exhibition presented by KHM (Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln/Academy of Media Arts Cologne)
