Even better: placing the image in original size results in a distortion of the aspect ratio according to preformatted sizes of the template. This aspect of visual articulation is part of my exploration in the elastic screen project.
I manipulated the clockhands of conventional clocks and replaced them with elastic latex material. Suddenly gravity becomes an important and influencing factor in the display of time. Some specific constellations of the clockhands are difficult for the rotation of the clockhands: when the hourly and minute clockhand move on top of each other the clockhand for seconds does not have enough energy to move over them and gets stucked. Furthermore the display of time gets creatural and anthropomorphic. Physical factors are not settled or reduced to a controlled, well organised sequence. Instead, they are encouraged and made apparent.
Rulers in different materials shrunken with pressure cooker.
10, 15, 20 minutes.
First experiment with pressure cooker to shrink styrofoam cups: from left to right the cups are shown from original size to shrinking times in the pressure cooker between 10 min. – 25 min.
The scale is shrinking and the cups lose elasticity. Filling the cup with water results in a roman appearing shape.
Hanging of 1 kilo rubberbands in Articulate art space. Got good responses as my work holds the space together and connects the other artworks. In the concept of the exhibition 5 artists per week react to the space and to previous works. In the left image abobe from India Zegan is Sach Catts response to my work like a manifestation of the tensile temporary forces I am referring to.
Text from Amy Prcevich
Beta Bruder’s Diagramatic Entanglements is an ensemble of elastic bands stretched to their limits and connected to each other and the corners of the building. The work gently directs viewers to draw their gaze to the periphery of the artwork and on to the structure of the building. The audience is encouraged to touch, pull and play with the bands causing them to bob, shudder and bounce. The viewer induced movement and mutation of the work makes us ponder the moments of fluidity and spontaneity that can occur within a fixed structure.
