BIO

Monika Grzymala, Grzymala is a Polish-born artist who’s lived in Germany for many years, primarily in Hamburg and now Berlin. She makes installations that might be described as a kind of three-dimensional drawing, and her signature material is tape, tape of all colors and kinds: packing, masking, adhesive and upholstery.

AERIAL EINZELAUSSTELLUNG

MATERIAL

Black tape

TECHNOLOGY

This installation may not be made of ferrofluid but does seem to have the spectacular dynamics in it. The huge, bursting installation out of 5 km of is made black paper tape. Monika makes what she calls ‘architectural interventions’: site-specific, large-scale, temporary, often ephemeral transformations with a wide range of materials, including handmade paper, tapes, wire, confetti, leaves, branches and other found objects. So with house hold product surrealism can definately be attained.

BIO

Fabian oefner

(born 1984, Switzerland) is a curious investigator, photographer and artist, whose work moves between the fields of art and science. He is on a mission to harness elemental forms of natural phenomena and capture them in the most stunning way possible. His aim is to present the unseen and poetic facets of our natural world and to invite us to stop for a moment and appreciate the magic that constantly surrounds us.

MATERIAL

Ferrofluid, magnetic field and water colours.

TECHNOLOGY

The shapes, you see in these image are about the size of a thumbnail. They are created by mixing ferrofluid with water colour and putting it into a magnetic field.
Ferrofluid is a magnetic solution with a viscosity similar to motor oil. When put under a magnetic field, the iron particles in the solution start to rearrange, forming the black channels and separating the water colours from the ferrofluid. Mixing ferrofluid with water colours is a simple but effective technique, but the execution is a bit uninspiring for my liking.

CONCEPT

Ferienne is the third installment of an ongoing experimental study on fluid dynamics, magnetism and cymatics. These invisible forces of nature are then made visible through various liquids and mixtures, and they form patterns that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. The colour palette was kept similar to that of the human skin, and the textures were manipulated using different backgrounds, further pushing the limits of trypophobia; the fear of holes.

MATERIAL

Ferrofluid and various liquids and textures. (go to Sachiko Kodama

for more ferrofluid background)

TECHNOLOGY

The ferrofluid is controlled by magnetic fields and mixing it with different liquids forms new structures. But I do feel that most of the wow factor is due to the video editing although Omar claims to have stayed as analogue as possible, using simple editing techniques, create motion graphics that are natural and organic.

ABOUT

Pinar&Viola is an office for contemporary image making, founded by Pinar Demirdag and Viola Renate.

They suggest new forms of visual representation in the age of digitalization. Besides their autonomous projects, they work in commission as creative directors.

MATERIAL

Photoshop and Illustrator

TECHNIQUE

Pinar&Viola initiated a new way of working in the realm of design. Every year, they launch a Surface Collection, where they create a fantasy scenario reflecting an extreme happening, a sensation or a change which they believe will mark the years to come.

Their collections include The Credit Card Collection, Diva Opaque, 4eva, Scandal Aqua and Optical illusion selfies.

EFFECT

These collections and their other autonomous projects form a cutting-edge inspiration source for the projects they do in commission. Our client list is broad, from technological companies, fashion designers and museums to musicians and popular brands.

They are open to share their vision with others. They give advice as brand strategists, assisting to develop the vision of a brand as consultants for the future trends to come.

PROJECT

DIY City 0.01a is an early-stage prototype for a future mass-participation performance
developed in a 2-week collaboration with Special Moves.
In the project, the very streets themselves, and the buildings that look upon them,
become the canvas for an urban-scale three-dimensional projection.
It’s a graphical environmental where people are given the power and control over their habitat by reimagining and redesigning the spaces of their city in real-time, and all of this through a mobile interface.

EFFECT
People we’re able to create and change the exterior of the urban spaces where they live in a playful and simple way. The controller was simply through a mobile interface so it felt like what you created and imagined at that moment close to you could be then instantly be translated onto a lager scale.

PROJECT

Rain Room is an installation hundred square meter field of falling water through which it is possible to walk, trusting that a path can be navigated, without being drenched in the process. As you progress, the sound of water and a suggestion of moisture fill the air. Then, you are confronted by, this carefully choreographed downpour of water that responds to your movements and presence.

MATERIALS

Water
Steel beams
Grated steel floor

TECHNOLOGY

 Water management system
Injection molded tiles
Solenoid valves
Pressure regulators
3D sensor-tracking cameras
Customized software


EFFECT

The person that walks through the rain will experience the illusion of walking outside in a humid rainy environment but actually won’t get wet. Also for those who are standing outside of it will also see those who are inside as if they are really standing in the rain. It’s about the feeling of standing outside in connection with nature.

MATERIAL:

Internet

TECHNOLOGY:

His work researches the screen as a pictorial space, reverse engineering reality into condensed bits, in a space somewhere between animated cartoons and paintings. His installations involve moving light and reflections, taking online works and transforming them into spatial experiences.

EFFECT:

Interactive internet experiences spread out over a vast network of domain names, attracting a large online audience of over 40 million visits per year.
