Identity by Piotr Kowalski

Identity by Piotr Kowalski | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Piotr Kowalski : "Identity" (n°2), 1978

 

Piotr Kowalski, born March 2, 1927 in Lviv in Poland (now the city is located in Ukraine) and died January 7, 2004 in Paris at the age of 76, was much more than a sculptor, mathematician and architect.

Piotr Kowalski is one of the pioneers of the art technology, its different caps (arts, sciences, engineering) will allow it to link practices that some believe culturally incompatible.

"Wind-Arrows", outdoor works exhibition at Fort Mason. A sculpture stretching 35 feet in height, it is intended to show just how different the wind can be at varying heights. The wind goes in different directions at different altitudes.

 

The Outdoor Exploratorium at Fort Mason was created by the Exploratorium in partnership with the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Fort Mason Center. These interactive exhibits were designed to help visitors notice and investigate the subtle phenomena of the everyday world and explore the complex systems at play in outdoor environments. Fort Mason offers a unique location for observing the movement of wind and waves, the interplay of light, shadow, and temperature, and the interaction between natural and built environments.

 

The Exploritorium, San Francisco, opened in 1969, was America's first hands-on science museum. It was founded by physicist and educator Frank Oppenheimer, brother of atomic bomb developer, J. Robert Oppenheimer. The "museum of science, art and human perception" features over 650 exhibits based on interactive participation. Housed in a giant half-moon-shaped structure behind the Palace of Fine Arts these exhibits feature engaging examinations of physics, electricity, life sciences, thermodynamics, weather, light, psychology, linguistics and sense perception.

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.

Wela: "The Whisperers"

Wela: "The Whisperers" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Wela (Elisabeth Wierzbicka) - permanent interactive installation "The Whisperers", the Copernicus Science Centre, Dicovery Parc, Warsaw, 2011

 

Installation "The Whisperers" consists of 16 stainless steel columns put in the middle of the park of discovery. The columns are equipped with sensors and speakers in order to detect visitors and distribute natural sounds such as the whisper of a stream, rain, wind, volcano, etc. People can do real-time sound spatialization on the type of sound and played on the sound effects.
The visual and sound installation, compared to contemporary organs, symbolizes a virtual-real time in which we live and transports the viewer to the fourth more spiritual dimension.
The installation also shows the paradox of contemporary man desire to approach to nature by artificial means.

White Lives on Speaker by Yoshimasa Kato and Yuichi Ito

The theme of our work is sculpture made through sound. The method of this work is a white liquid jumping on a speaker. This liquid is potato starch dissolved in water. A dilantancy phenomenon is observable when the mixing the potato startch in equal amounts of water. When stimulated, the dissolved starch becomes solid, yet returns to liquid when the stimulation is stopped. It is this phenomenon that we use in our work. (2007)

Sachiko Kodama, Yasushi Miyajima "Morpho Towers -- Two Stand

http://www.kodama.hc.uec.ac.jp/spiral/...

Sachiko Kodama, Yasushi Miyajima: "Morpho Towers -- Two Standing Spirals" (2007)

 

“Morpho Towers--Two Standing Spirals” is an installation that consists of two ferrofluid sculptures that moves synthetically to music. The two spiral towers stand on a large plate that hold ferrofluid. When the music starts, the magnetic field around the tower is strengthened. Spikes of ferrofluid are born from the bottom plate and move up, trembling and rotating around the edge of the iron spiral.
The body of the tower was made by a new technique called “ferrofluid sculpture” that enables artists to create dynamic sculptures with fluid materials. This technique uses one electromagnet, and its iron core is extended and sculpted. The ferrofluid covers the sculpted surface of a three-dimensional iron shape that was made on an electronic NC lathe. The movement of the spikes in the fluid is controlled dynamically on the surface by adjusting the power of the electromagnet. The shape of the iron body is designed as helical so that the fluid can move to the top of the helical tower when the magnetic field is strong enough.
The surface of the tower responds dynamically to its magnetic environment.

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.

Wela (Elisabeth Wierzbicka): "Suspended passage", The Street Arts Festival, "Viva Cite", Sotteville-lès-Rouen, 2006, high 6 metres, diameter 5 metres, forex, metal, mine of lead, engine

 

“Suspended Passage ” continues Wela’s research on the “Unreal realities” The artist aim is to co-create with the spectator the totality of the virtual reality of drawing, time and space.
The work consist of an open space formed by two cylindrical forex walls, six metres high and four metres in diameter, inside which the artist has drawn in pencil. In the centre of the cylinder there is a rerolling column in highly polished stainless steel which reflects both the artist drawing and the external environment destabilised by the presence of the spectator.
The perpetual movement of a multitude of variations which depends on the position, the movement, and the time of observation.

*The Copernicus Science Centre (in Polish: Centrum Nauki Kopernik) is a science museum standing on the bank of the Vistula River in Warsaw. It contains over 350 interactive exhibits that enable visitors to single-handedly carry out experiments and discover the laws of science for themselves. Many artworks have been installed in and around the Centre.
The Centre is the largest institution of its type in Poland and one of the most advanced in Europe.
