Cups for Alice

Standard drinking cups made of polystyrene imprinted with a measurement scale were aboard of an oceanographic research vessel of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the US (NOAA) during an expedition in the Gulf of Mexico in a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV). Due to the increased air pressure, the cups shrank with every meter of descent resulting in tiny smurfed measuring cups.

Elastic Metric System

To facilitate the sociocultural transformation towards a culture with an enhanced sensorium, I implemented the New Elastic Metric System on an arbitrary basis as an intervention in public spaces such as cultural institutions and border areas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elastic Standard Metre

Unmeasuring the original metric system from 1795 located in Paris with the Elastic Standard Metre on a daily basis for one month. The measuring results varied each day. Video documentation, 2.30 min on Vimeo: Elastic Standard Metre

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Organic Equilibrium

Transformed spirit levels with the vial embedded in organic materials to determine potential solutions outside of the binary paradigm (even / uneven) of conventional scientific rationality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Disordered Zero Point of Clandulla State Forest

In a geometrical approximation the geographical zero point of Clandulla State Forest Gallery, NSW, Australia was determined at -32°53’37.6”, 149°56’6”. This mark was shifted to the main area of the open air exhibition (The Survey Show). Such flexibility of the zero point was represented by a mobile rotating device keeping the zero point in constant motion explicating the discrepancy between human made constructions and reality.

Viscous Timespacematter

Bergson’s concept of duration as an immeasurable flow and intuitive sense of time in contrast to mechanized clock-time was the basis of several experiments about time. Revamped time keepers literally softened the rigidity of ordered time. Video documentation, 2.40 min on Vimeo: Viscous Timers

Manipulated clocks

Uhrenjpgs3

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.

Shrinking rulers

Rulers in different materials shrunken with pressure cooker.
10, 15, 20 minutes.

Shrinking Cups

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.

Exhibition: Articulate Space, Sydney – 11.04.2014

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

Taking its name from a traditional knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colours, the works in Fair Isle form a tapestry of conversations around fluidity and structure.

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.

At the heart of all these works is a curated conversation about states of transition and in each form we get the sense that we are merely looking at one point in the life-span of an object or idea. As viewers we have the responsibly to be imaginative and contemplative in order to create ideas about the past and future based on these momentarily fixed states that form a connection between what is and what will be.
