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.

Disordered Zero Point of Clandulla State Forest

Survey show of Clandulla State Gallery, NSW, Australia

In a geometrical approximation process the geographical zero point of Clandulla State Forest was determined at -32°53’37.6”, 149°56’6”. This mark was shifted to the main area of the one-day exhibition. Such flexibility of the zero point is represented by a mobile rotating device, which keeps the zero point in constant motion.

The project materialises the discrepancy between human made constructions offside of situational and local concerns like naturally unfolded occurrences. The project oscillates between these two worlds and the visitors are physically moving between them by revisiting the site and following the paths.

Very successfull exhibition in the Clandulla State Forest Gallery – the disordered zeropoint behaved well and unsteady. Got great feedback.

Disordered zero point of Clandulla State Forest

Spatial disorientation, collaborative curation and emergence theory in the unconventional space of Clandualla State Gallery, which is a forest.

Description of work: In a geometrical approximation process the geographical zero point of Clandulla State Forest got calculated. In three different hanging positions a perpendicular installed on top of the contour of the state forest created a intersection point – this is the geographical zero point or zone of gravitiy of the state forest. This process allowed the determination of the zero point at -32°53’37.6” , 149°56’6”.  As the area is difficult to access, the zero point got shifted to the main area of the exhibition. This flexibility of the zero point is represented through a mobile rotating device, which keeps the zero point in constant motion. The work consists of a battery-powered rotation motor from an-off-the-shelf tinkering-and-assembly set. Parallel references to longitudes and latidudes in the area are marked by shuffled walking paths on the ground. The project materializes the discrepancy between human made constructions such as the segmentation of the world in latitudes and longitudes or the setting of abstract target points offside of situational and local concerns like walking paths of humans and animals, vegetation and other naturally unfolded occurences. The project oscillates between these two worlds and the visitors are physically moving between them by revisiting the site and following the paths.

Diffraction project – online prototype

http://wip.fmotzkus.com/bb/projects/diffraction1online/
Online version of diffraction project for elastic design. The size of the black overlay depends on incoming data from the environment (quality of air, water etc.) or the individual situation and respective information from user side such as duration of time spent online. Our line of sight is disturbed and redirected to the bordering areas of the site or image. This proposal works in a reverse manner than ‚Elastic screen 1‘.
Instead of the distortion of the image or the content itself, a reactive overlay is redirecting our attention and puts emphasis on ignored but participating factors of our experience. In the example of ‚duration spent online‘ the overlay disrupts our usual ways of seeing and perceiving. In this case the direct perception of website content and related online usage; time, which could have been spent otherwise. The redirection of our line of sight and the elasticity of the format or respectively the black overlay modify our perception with consequences on our thinking and our actions.
