The Concert of the Future, Today

For decades, Amon Tobin has constantly pioneered new sounds in the world of electronic music. So it makes sense that he'd want a visual stage show as advanced and experimental as his sounds. I think he nailed it this time.

The result? An geometric and downright beautiful video wall projecting visuals that float, spasm, surge and glitch all over the place. At times, the effect is immersive, feeling like the effects are projecting into space. And like Dvice writer (and Giz alum) Adam Frucci says, you should probably consider getting a ticket for this now. [Spinner UK via Wired UK via Dvice]

How We Look At Art

Visual Arts » “Peace or misery”: The making of a Sol LeWitt wall drawing

Visual Arts » “Peace or misery”: The making of a Sol LeWitt wall drawing | images in context | Scoop.it
Over the years, Sol LeWitt developed relationships with a cadre of assistants that he trusted to create his wall drawings — or more precisely, to carry out his legendary instructions for making them.
“The draftsman and the wall enter a dialogue. The draftsman becomes bored but later through this meaningless activity finds peace or misery. The lines on the wall are the residue of this process. Each line is as important as each other line. All of the lines become one thing. The viewer of the lines can see only lines on a wall. They are meaningless. That is art.”

—Sol LeWitt, 1971
