Maria Jose Arjona

“Her body of work is divided in two: Single pieces (site specific) and performance cycles which operate in synchronicity within the chronological timeline. The performance cycles, composed by a series of works, are created by the artist as “research spaces” in order to understand the meaning of specific concepts and their effects on the body. Both, concepts and effects, within the frame of an almost scientific method, unfold into different dynamics where the presence of the artist must function outside the boundaries of identity. Arjona’s work does not respond or denounces specific events; the performances their selves, are transformed into questions or bridges uniting distant points of diverse conversations. The artist’s objective then, is to become a connecting entity, operating as medium of visual communication and energy exchange.”

Dreams of Flying

“Crossing the desert on the back of a dog or searching for lost treasures on the bottom of the ocean, Jan von Holleben’s photographs make nostalgic dreams come true.

Jan brings the influences of his parents – a cinematographer and child therapist – to his work. His focus on the visual representation of childhood, ‘Child-History’ and concepts of ‘Playing’, come from his teacher training coursework: he combines these theories with his personal experience and childhood memories. Inspired by classic childhood books as well as modern superheroes, he has produced ‘Dreams of Flying’ since 2002 with children from his local neighbourhood in Southwest Germany – ongoing!”

“I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.”

Jorge Luis Borges

 

Starfield is an installation where a swing is used to create a large interactive starry sky.

With a Kinect installed behind the swing and a video projector, the software creates a galaxy of stars in which the user wanders with the rhythm of his swing.

Created with openFrameworks, the application allows to configure almost any type of swing.

With anaglyph glasses, a 3D mode gives an even more immerse experience.

It is amazing when two artists work together. Shaun Roberts and Derek Weisberg have been showed before in our blog. This time Shaun is doing a beautiful video about Derek’s work. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Black Herds of The Rain is a film documenting Conor Harrington’s trip home to Ireland in the summer of 2011 to paint 3 walls. The journey and subsequent paintings are inspired by Austin Clarke’s poem The Lost Heifer.”
