Krzysztof Wodiczko: “Guests”

Krzysztof Wodiczko: “Guests” | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Krzysztof Wodiczko: “Guests”, 2009, Polish pavilion, Venice Biennial

 

Literally "open" space inside the exhibit with "windows" where video plays small scenes. The appearance somewhat milky windows virtual leaves us perceive that the blurred silhouettes of those who remain outside. And external actors, previously filmed, are none other than immigrants living in Poland and Italy and from various parts of the world. "People who, according to Bozena Czubak, not being at home, remains" eternal guests. '"

Bruce Shapiro: "Pipedream III"

Bruce Shapiro: "Pipedream III" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Bruce Shapiro: "Pipedream III", Ontario Science Centre, Toronto, 2006

 

Bruce Shapiro is one of the world's pioneers in DIY computer controlled kinetics. For over a decade, the California-based tinkerer has been designing software to automate a range of machines—from a stratograph, which makes highly-detailed sand art (pictured), to a series called "Sisyphus" that creates intricate mandalas in sand using a ball bearing and a tilt table. Check it out after the jump, along with an image from Shapiro's "Pipedream III," a hi-res bubble raster or embolograph that's capable of reproducing faces.

Paul Friedlander: "Art Futura XXI"

Paul Friedlander: "Art Futura XXI" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Paul Friedlander: "Art Futura XXI", Bilbao, Spain, 2011- Alhondiga Bilbao

Interactive light sculpture: visitors select images of earlier Friedlander's artworks using a touch screen. The images are digitally processed in real time using custom software to create a pallete of colours in the new light sculpture. Below the light sculpture is the touch screen used for interactive control.

 The sculpture is an example of the use of artist's invention chromastrobic light, light that changes colour faster than the eye can see. The sculpture is in fact lit by only one colour at each instant but appears to be multi-coloured. These photos faithfully show how it looks to the human eye.

Monika Sosnowska: "Stairway" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Monika Sosnowska’s architectural installation  "Stairway" at K21 in Dusseldorf, 2010


Monika Sosnowska's works are in continuous dialogue with modernism: with its utopian ideology as well as with the social and political ambitions it became a sign for. Her particular focus is Constructivism, which turned its gaze to architecture as the field that pioneered technological progress.

Karina Smigla-Bobinski: "ADA"

"ADA - analog interactive installation / kinetic sculpture by Karina Smigla-Bobinski, 2010.  Music by Mohammad Reza Mortazavi..."

 

«ADA» is a post-industrial „creature“, visitor animated, creatively acting artist-sculpture, self-forming artwork, resembling a molecular hybrid, such as a one from nano biotechnology. Filled up with helium, floating freely in room, atransparent, membranelike globe, spiked with charcoals that leave marks on the walls, ceilings and floors. Marks which «ADA» produces quite autonomously, athough moved by a visitor.

Karla Black: "Persuasion Face", Turner Prize Installation View, 2011

 

Karla Black’s nomination for this year’s Turner Prize rounds off a busy year. 2011 began with a group show from the Arts Council Collection at Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Then followed the ultimate honour of representing Scotland at the 54th Venice Biennale in a pavilion curated by Glasgow’s Fruitmarket Gallery. Then came the Turner Prize nomination and the bookies seem to agree with the buzz in the artworld – Black is a strong contender and all-round favourite."

Sean McGinnis

Sean McGinnis | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Sean McGinnis, American artist living in Paris

His works are  made of floating rope / suspended in space, held in place by the tension of the son and attached to the elements of the place. These facilities take between one and three weeks to be completed and they are often ephemeral. As they are created on site, they are intimately related to their respective sites, they can not be displaced and are being dismantled at the end of the exhibition. The work of the plant is considered as an important part of the work

Gabriel Orozco,  Mexican artist

Orozco’s exploration of the use of installations in addition to his photographs and sculptures, allows the audience’s imagination to explore the creative associations between often-ignored objects in today’s world. His work permits a rarely allowed interaction between the artwork and the audience.

Shawn Lani: "Icy Bodies"

swirls art and science in this mesmerising installation. Shards of frozen dry ice sublimate as they are released into a satisfyingly large and dark basin. The gas then propels them, leaving little wakes at they snake about. It's like watching from a plane lots of crewless boats with their engines left on randomly exploring the moonlit night ocean.
