Light-Space Modulator Three moveable metal and/or glass structures arranged on a rotating disc form the core of the Light-Space Modulator. However, it only develops its impact in a darkened space, such as the “cubic box” envisioned by Moholy-Nagy, where it produces spectacular shadow formations in an interplay with coloured and white light. The kinetic sculpture was first displayed in 1930 as part of the German contribution to the Deutscher Werkbund (German Work Federation) exhibition in Paris. That same year, its effects were the subject of the film Lichtspiel Schwarz-Weiß-Grau (Light Play Black-White-Grey), which was directed by Moholy-Nagy. The Best of Art Basel 2011 « The Ballast It was yet another successful year at Art Basel Miami Beach, with some of the toughest art being shown globally. We decided to cover as much ground as possible during the day making it to Pulse, Scope, Aqua, Art Basel, Wynwood Galleries, Spinello Projects’ school house opening Site Specific No. 1, The M building and more. We selected the top work we cam across this weekend and made a dream team of images, and a couple of other things that will make you smile or cry. Enjoy! Alexander Ross Alyssa Dennis
Michele Gabriele Reblogged from Paul Barsch’s instagram; a fast look into the BODY HOLES project. BODY HOLES, the third and most elaborate exhibition project by New Scenario, explores the natural orifices of the human body as practical exhibition spaces for art. The show builds on macro shots of artworks by over forty international artists and artist groups, installed in the mouth, nose, ears and more explicit areas. BODY HOLES will be released June 3rd, 2016 as an online exhibition at the 9th Berlin Biennale and can be accessed via the online section “FearOfContent” and newscenario.net.

Each week we pay homage to a select “Original Creator”—an iconic artist from days gone by whose work influences and informs today’s creators. These are artists who were innovative and revolutionary in their fields. Bold visionaries and radicals, groundbreaking frontiersmen and women who inspired and informed culture as we know it today. This week: Dan Flavin. “One might not think of light as a matter of fact, but I do.
