Forms in Nature

Forms in Nature
Forms in Nature The Light sculpture Forms in Nature resembles Darwinist Ernst Haeckel’s drawings . Using a simple action, such as intensifying the brightness at the center of the artwork, the light transforms the space and adds character, as the work throws oversized shadows onto walls and ceilings in the space in which it hangs. The light sculpture Forms in Nature is partly inspired by Ernst Haeckel’s (1834- 1919) detailed plots from nature and is a further development of Hilden & Diaz’ fascination with mirrorings, as they have previously applied in other artworks. Forms in Nature is a artwork with a light source surrounded by a dense and unruly tree and root system created in minature sculpture. Interestingly, the roots are those elements of the forest that are the most visible. The shadows engulfs the room and transforms the walls into unruly shadows of branches, bushes and gnarled trees.

Sacred Space: New Technological Mandalas by Leonardo Ulian London-based artist Leonardo Ulian (previously) has completed a new body of work titled Sacred Space. Inspired by Hindu and Buddhist symbolism, Ulian continues his exploration of technology and spiritualism with these carefully sculpted mandalas created with soldered computer and radio components. Via Beers.Lambert: Ulian’s reflexive use of the geometrical mandala can also be seen as a nod to his ‘past-life’ as an technican, but through his application, Ulian divorces the electronic components from their origins, giving new life to these (now defunct) technological bits, creating a new type of hybridization that is equal parts spiritualization and contemporary critique: “We live in a society that worships electronic technology,” he states “both for necessity but also because it makes us feel better, not unlike its own new form of fashionable spirituality.” Of particular note in this solo show is an amazing little three-dimensial bonsai tree titled Centrica Bonsai.

Il étudie l’anthropologie, l’histoire et l’art au Trinity College de Cambridge puis part en Inde et au Sri Lanka pour s’initier au bouddhisme jusqu’en 1974.

Anthony Howe's Kinetic Wind Sculptures Pulse And Hypnotize | Video The Creators Project linked up with Anthony Howe, an Eastsound, WA-based painter and sculpture artist to highlight his work in the medium of surreal kinetic wind sculpture that are initially designed in 3D software. "I was bored with everything being static in my visual world," Howe told us. In other words, he believes sculptures don't have to be stoic designs that are lifeless. Howe creates art that lives and moves with nature, and his metal cut-outs give the impression of dancing, real-world screensavers. The artist walked us through the workflow of how his pieces go from 3D models that he designs on his desktop to CAD designs made through Rhinoceros 3D. To make sculptures as hypnotic as Howe, you have to be a somewhat odd fellow and think big, think weird. Get enlightened by Anthony Howe first with GIFs of his kinetic sculptures, but pair the vortex-like visuals with these quotes about art commerce, creation and innovation. "It shocked me that my art became somewhat viral online.

Bipolar | 7,83 HZ de Véronique Béland Cette oeuvre cherche à reproduire les résonances de Schumann, un phénomène atmosphérique naturel et permanent fait de pics spectraux dans le domaine des extrêmement basses fréquences (ELF) du champ électromagnétique terrestre. Ceux-ci se propagent autour de la Terre sous la forme d’ondes, et comprennent une fréquence fondamentale (7.83 Hz) et quatre harmoniques principales situées entre 14 et 34 Hz. En faisant coïncider ce phénomène avec les recherches en neurosciences, on constate que ce sont les mêmes fréquences qui déterminent le rythme cérébral chez l’être humain: la fondamentale est identique aux longueurs d’onde Alpha émises par le cerveau par état de relaxation profonde ou de méditation, alors que les harmoniques correspondent à la gamme des ondes Beta, produites lors d’une activité cognitive intense. Il y avait d’abord le désir de voir ou d’entendre des choses qui ne sont normalement pas présentes aux sens; l’obsession de ressentir que le vide n’est pas rien.
