Olafur Eliasson + Yansong Ma ‘Feelings Are Facts’ Installation at the UCCA Gallery in the 798 Art District of Beijing.
(SCI-Arc), Elastic Plastic Sponge is large scale installation, designed and built for the famous Coachella Festival. Unique in form, this installation is highly flexible and can be twisted, curled and arched in order to form different spaces, ranging from lounge, theater, sun-shade to large sculptural Mobius strip.
Precisely described in architectural terminology as form active, meaning that its form is derived from the material properties.
Made of lightweight flexible plastic tube, the installation was actually weaved like a big basket. The individual gems are held together using loops of aircraft cable precisely threaded through small holes drilled in the tubing. The gems were further held together as a big ribbon using worm drive hose clamps in precise locations. The structure operated as a big sponge – it was squishy and unbreakable, therefore very suitable for festival environment. As it was open and anchored to the ground using earth nails, in heavy winds it was stationary. In order to serve as festival attraction at night, the whole assembly was arrayed with T5 fluorescent tubes gelled purple.
Miguel Chevalier spreads Magic Carpets 2014 over Sacre Coeur in Morocco
Miguel Chevalier (born 1959) is a French digital artist known internationally as one of the pioneers of virtual art.
‘Magic Carpets 2014′ by French artist Miguel Chevalier is an interactive light display spread out across the floor of the former Sacré Coeur church in Casablanca, Morocco. covering it with a huge layer of light, the work references the world of biology, microorganisms, and cellular automata – as cells have the ability to multiply in abundance, divide and merge at different paces. pieces come together, fall apart and transform in shape at rapid speeds. the displayed organic universe mingles with a digital construction of overlapping pixels.
