  2. 320° Licht | Urbanscreen | Via

    The ‘320° Licht’ installation of Urbanscreen uses the cathedral-like beauty of the Gasometer as the starting point for a fascinating game with shapes and light.

    Within a radius of 320 degrees graphic patterns grow and change on the 100-metre high inside wall of the Gasometer.

    The observer experiences the interplay between real and virtual space, in which the Gasometer seems to dissolve into its own, filigree structures and yet finally always reverts to its clear shape. ’320° Licht’ has been achieved with kind project support from Epson Germany.

    With approx 20,000 square meters of area played upon, the installation is among the world’s largest and technically most sophisticated interior projections - interconnecting 21 powerful projectors to one projection screen.

    Up Up and Away!

    This gorgeous long exposure photo shows the flight path of the spaceflyers’ Soyuz TMA-12M rocket.

    The rocket, headed for the International Space Station, launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Wednesday, March 26, 2014. On board was NASA astronaut Steven Swanson as well as two Russian cosmonauts: Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev. The trio will spend the next 6 months working in space.

    Line Segments Space

    Installation by Kimchi and Chips features a polygon web of nylon strips, projected on to great effect - video embedded below:

    An architectural web of threads subtends a null space. It hangs abstract and undefined, a set of thin positive elements segmenting the dark negative space between. Dynamic imaginary forms are articulated into the physical volume by the material of this thread, and the semi-material of the light. The visual gravity of the filaments occupying the space between.

    A 2D canvas is reduced from a surface piece into a line segment, but then constructed into another dimension, a volume. Light creates contrast and order on the lines to articulate digital matter. Digital forms inhabit the interconnected boundaries of space, moulding visual mass,

    The artists reference Picasso’s light painting, and Reticuláreas of Gego who’s work offers a contemplation of the material and immaterial, time and space, origin and encounter and art and technology.
