Origin is the latest development in UVA’s exploration of large-scale responsive LED sculpture.  As part of The Creators Project New York event, UVA have created Origin, a responsive installation meant to explore our society’s acceptance of a technocratic life form.

Hedged between the two Bridges on Brooklyn’s shore, a 10m x 10m cube of light both disrupts and reflects the City, eliciting an emotional reaction from those that enter its realm. Origin is the culmination of a series of works derived from Orchestrion, the main stage design created by UVA for Coachella 2011.

Projection One is an interactive art installation that was recently unveiled at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Conceived and built by Andrew Payne and fellow GSD student, Eddy Man Kim, Projection One strives to challenge the way in which users perceive projection art.

We started by changing the projection surface.  Our idea was simple – take the traditional screen and cut it up into strips of variable widths.  Then rotate those strips to create a three dimensional surface; adding depth to create a more volumetric or spatial experience out of the projection schemes.  The overall surface measured approximately 13′(length) x 9′(height) x 3′(depth).

LED candles junio 7, 2012

During milan design week 2012, german-born, london-based new media designer moritz waldemeyer presents his LED candles, showcasing the soft lighting pieces in a threaded chandelier, as well as scattered throughout the space as candlesticks.

Each ‘candle’ is an individual unit, comprised of a custom-designed 250-LED panel and circuitry. waldemeyer explained to designboom that he programmed the behaviour of the ‘flame’ based on video footage of actual candles, converting the moving imagery to pixel data and working with a software engineer to code each individual LED to reflect the movement of the flame, achieving an extremely realistic representation. from a slight distance or in darkened settings, the pixels meld together and the top of the lighting unit disappears, leaving only a virtual flame visible and flickering atop a candle-like form.

David Zwirner is pleased to present an ambitious new work by American artist Doug Wheeler (b. 1939), whose large-scale installations have rarely been seen in the United States. Built within the gallery’s 519 West 19th Street space in New York, Wheeler’s SA MI 75 DZ NY 12 (2012) explores the materiality of light while emphasizing the viewer’s physical experience of infinite space. The exhibition marks the first presentation of an “infinity environment” by the artist in New York.

As a pioneer of the so-called “Light and Space” movement that flourished in Southern California in the 1960s and 1970s, Wheeler’s prolific and ground- breaking body of work encompasses drawing, painting, and installations that are characterized by a singular experimentation with the perception and experience of space, volume, and light. Raised in the high desert of Arizona, Wheeler began his career as a painter in the early 1960s while studying at the Chouinard Art Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts) in Los Angeles.

Ivan Toth Depeña’s light-based installation “Reflect” was permanently installed in the Stephen Clark Government Center Lobby in Miami on November 18, 2011. Commissioned by the Miami-Dade Art in Public Places initiative, the work illuminates the dynamism of the lobby space and encourages a sense of discovery in the visitors.

This dynamic art work is designed by the artist with the idea of welcoming visitors and employees to Government Center in a fun and interactive way,” said Michael Spring, Director of the Department of Cultural Affairs. “It will energize the lobby and symbolize the County’s commitment to be informative and responsive to our citizens.”

Libris. Kinetic Installation enero 17, 2012

Libris.  Instalación cinética por Marina Corach

Liber interior corticis tunica est, libri vivum textum. // El libro es la capa interna de la corteza, los libros un tejido vivo.

La palabra “libro” tiene origen en la raíz latina liber; corteza de árbol, el libro provienede algo vivo, y aunque muere orgánicamente puede volver a la vida de otra manera, al ser leído.

Libris. surge a partir de las coyunturas que se instauran en torno a los cambios y posibilidades que afronta el libro al pasar del medio tradicional al formato digital. Esta transformación deriva en una gama de sentimientos encontrados, críticas, fetichismos, miedos y fascinaciones. Sin importar el medio que se utilice, lo qué da sentido al libro-objeto es el interés hacia la lectura y/o la escritura, si nadie lo lee, el libro no tiene vida.

Sin intentar ser una instalación lúdica invadida por efectos especiales, se produce una ambientación que resalta una mesa con libros en blanco excepto el libro central que tiene una frase impresa, el espectador interesado se acercará a ver que esta escrito, llevandolo a una distancia íntima con los libros y buscará sorprenderlo con el movimiento orgánico que los hace parecer vivos. Así como sucede con el caminar de un pequeño insecto, el visitante se detendrá durante un momento para contemplar y percibir ese sutil rasgo de vida con la simulación de pulmones de papel mediante el sube y baja de las hojas, acompañado con un crujir al unísono de éstas rozando en cada movimiento.

Libris.  kinetic Installation by Marina Corach

The word “book finds its origin at the latin root “liber” (bark). A book comes out of something that is alive, and even though it dies organically, it comes alive as soon as someone reads the words within.

Libris was born from the joints established among those changes and possibilities that a book is facing, coming from its traditional form to a digital format. This transformation causes a wide range of mixed feelings, fetichisms, criticisims, fears and fascinations. But, it is not the media what matters, it is the interest towards its lecture what makes an object-book. Thus if nobody reads the book, it is not alive.

Not trying to be a recreational installation – saturated with special effects- Libris produces a stunning atmosphere. Open books on a table, all of them showing white pages, except for the one at the very center with a tiny phrase printed on it. The audience, when interested, would try to get closer to that phrase in order to read what it’s written, taking the spectator to an intimate distance with the book. This reduction of the space between them and the book would cause them sheets to start moving at an organic manner, as if the book was alive. Just like it happens when an insect passes by, now the visitor would stop for a second to contemplate and sense that subtle vital signs, not only the movement but also an almost imperceptible sound of the sheets caressing each other.

Light Painting by Andy Hemingway noviembre 24, 2011

When a photorapher masterfully blends two of our prime passions, light graffiti and abandoned places, they will always have a place on TheCoolist.  Photographer Andy Hemingway has released a photo series of light painting in an abandoned parking garage in Houston, TX.  Ribbons of light flutter through empty, open spaces, weaving luminescent floating images that stand out against the stark, cold appearance of the abandoned garage.  With a flashlight and some special tools, Hemingway can frame his shot on a tripod, set a long exposure and dance through the shot with his lights in hand.  The result is what you see below, a great collection of light painting photography.

Some future designs won’t be as functional as they will be visually impacting, but such has always been true about the clothes we wear.  Designer Wei-Chieh Shih built a laser suit with multiple rows of lasers stretching across the wearer’s back.  The suit will only have full visibility in a smoky environment, so this one is built for the night clubs.

Consider the advances of the past century. The way science has improved our daily lives. The possibilities unleashed by technology. The things we can do today that earlier generations could not even imagine.

Yes, this is about better information, tools, algorithms—but that’s not all. It’s about the deeply human quest to make the world more livable, safer, more efficient, more sustainable.

Over the past century, the women and men of IBM have played a part in this unfolding story of progress. Today, we feel more confident than ever in people’s capacity to see the world with greater clarity… to map what we see… to understand its dynamics. All of which builds shared belief… in a better future, and in the way each of us can act to make it so.

On this, our 100th anniversary, we wanted to share some lessons we’ve learned. The THINK exhibit is an exploration into how the world works and how to make it work better.

TONALCO 450 is an art installation of hundreds of handmade paper birds flaoting in open space. This work was inspired by the Nahuatl word for the fall season: ‘tonalco’. The objective of TONALCO 450 is to transform the space trough the effects of the lights trapped inside the forms. The result is many forms that emulate the collective, systemic motion of a flock of birds.
