No, you’re not on drugs, or maybe you are, in which case you might want to wait a while before watching this. Overstepping Artifacts is the latest fractalized music video from French animator and musician Alexandre Lehmann (aka Ricardo Montalban or Zzzzra) as part of his ongoing Musicians with Guns series. The clip is the definition of ‘otherworldly,’ and was created using special fractal software that results in morphing forms that seem part organic and part architectural. Overstepping Artifacts is a follow-up to his 2011 video Astroblast which is similar in tone but visuall quite different and also worth a watch. Lehmann talks a bit about his process in a 2012 interview over on Empty Kingdom. Best viewed HD, full-screen, headphones, etc.

Autonomous Machines: Windup Toys and Other Analog Devices Express Themselves through Art toys painting

As part of her MA work at the Design Academy Eindhoven, artist and graphic designer Echo Yang created a series titled Autonomous Machines where common analog devices like tin windup toys, a Walkman, an alarm clock and other machines where connected to writing and painting instruments. As each machine was set loose on a canvas its specialized motions were translated into brush strokes, paint blobs, and pencil marks resulting in self-generated artworks somewhat reminiscent of spirographs. While conceptual artists have long been recording the actions of machines, plants, wind and other moving objects to generate artwork, Yang’s painting wind-up chicken toy stands out as a superbly executed idea. It would be great to see a whole series of those. You can see many more painting vacuum cleaners, hand mixers and electric razors on her website. (via MOCO LOCO)

Responsive Hexi Wall Ripples and Wobbles Based on Nearby Motion interior design interactive

Based in Canada, designer Thibault Sld explores the realm where “geometry, light, mechanisms and interaction collide,” by creating interactive displays and lights that respond to exterior input. One of his most captivating ideas is Hexi, an interactive array of 60 hexagonal modules embedded with mechanical servos that use data from a nearby depth camera to physically respond to nearby motion. It would be amazing to see an entire room or hallway covered in something like this. You can learn more over on his website, or watch the video above to see it in motion. (via Designboom)

Du 13 février au 11 mai 2014

 

"En 2010, nous avons été invités à travailler par Le Point du Jour et la Fondation Bon-Sauveur sur lesarchives de l’hôpital psychiatrique de Picauville, dans la Manche, à une quarantaine de kilomètres de Cherbourg.

Bal Masqué à l'hopital de Picauville

Bal Masqué à l'hopital de Picauville

Cette invitation faisait suite à une demande adressée par la Fondation au Point du Jour :

les vieux bâtiments de l’hôpital seraient bientôt détruits ; il fallait, d’une manière différente,

conserver la mémoire du lieu. Première originalité du projet, c’est une institution médicale qui avait sollicité une institution culturelle installée sur le même territoire.

Jour de Kermesse à l'hopital de Picauville

Nous ne savions pas précisément ce que nous trouverions mais on nous avait indiqué qu’un service audiovisuel animé par un infirmier passionné, Léon Faligot, disposait de films et de photographies anciennes ; parallèlement, nous aurions libre accès aux archives écrites de l’hôpital, et notamment aux dossiers médicaux datant parfois d’avant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. En découvrant les centaines d’images, des années 1930 à nos jours, conservées dans ces nombreux cartons, pochettes, classeurs, nous avons eu immédiatement le sentiment d’être tombés sur un trésor oublié."

Mathieu Pernot et Philippe Artières.

La plupart des images n’étaient pas légendées, on n’en connaissait ni les auteurs, ni les personnes représentées, mais le corpus était formidablement divers et témoignait, outre de la vie d’une institution, de tous les usages du médium : portrait d’identité, photographie d’architecture, imagerie médicale, photographie de vacances, reportage de presse, instantanés domestiques, cartes postales ou images officielles. Très vite, s’est imposée à nous l’idée que ce corpus constituait moins l’histoire en images d’une institution, emblématique de l’évolution de la psychiatrie, qu’une histoire de la photographie vue depuis l’hôpital, lieu de vie à la fois spécifique et banal – une histoire non marginale mais à la marge, une sorte d’asile des photographies. Ainsi, s’établissait une correspondance entre la nature et le sujet de ces images : ici, pas de grands noms, ni le plus souvent d’événements remarquables mais le quotidien d’anonymes ; pas de chefs d’oeuvre bien composés mais l’éclat du réel que la photographie enregistre.

Si quelques images pouvaient évoquer le San Clemente de Raymond Depardon, les hystériques de Charcot ou encore les « monstres » de Diane Arbus, les instantanés de Picauville – repas, kermesses, vacances – renvoyaient à une forme de normalité, celle de l’iconographie familiale. Ils formaient un contrepoint inédit à la vision dramatisée de la « folie », dominante depuis le XIXe siècle. Plutôt que de nous servir de ce corpus pour faire, chacun de notre côté, notre travail habituel d’historien ou d’artiste, nous avons voulu en faire la matière même d’une élaboration commune au cours des trois ans qu’a duré ce projet. L’exposition et le livre qui en résultent sont des montages où notre vision voisine avec celles des bonnes soeurs, des médecins, des patients et de leurs familles qui, comme nous, ont connu Picauville.

L’Asile des photographies ne prétend donc pas à l’exactitude, quoiqu’il s’agisse de documents, ni a fortiori à l’exhaustivité, bien que fidèle à leur diversité. Il traduit avant tout une expérience, la nôtre, inscrite dans une histoire collective, et comme telle multiple. Nous remercions chaleureusement la Fondation Bon-Sauveur ainsi que les « gens de Picauville », de nous avoir offert cette liberté.

As an amalgamation of the natural and the industrial artist Ben Foster creates life-size recreations of animals in geometric form. Photographed against the backdrop of his native New Zealand the aluminum pieces stand in stark contrast to their new surroundings. For more, see Foster’s online gallery or Facebook.
