Caux Collective Introduces: ATOMIC3
Situated in downtown Montreal, a gorgeous temporary installation consisting of four skeletal metal arches, equipped with illuminating light and atmospheric sounds, make up a fantastic piece of informative, interactive art named ‘Iceberg’ made by creative art duo, ATOMIC3.
Referred to, in its simplest sense, as a “playful, immersive work” this piece uses lights, sounds and a whole lot of visitor participation to tell the story of an iceberg’s journey. Motion sensors detect movements inside of the piece’s architectural mainframe, triggering timely changes in the lights and sounds, with each of the fours part of the installation echoing a different part of the iceberg’s inanimate life-cycle.
If you would like to see more of this beautiful piece, head over to the ATOMIC3 website, as linked above, where you can find plenty more images and analysis, or click here to watch the video on Vimeo, where you can see exactly how this installation works.
Caux Collective Introduces: United Visual Artists
In their extraordinary, 10-day installation piece named ‘Speed of Light’ from 2010, the prolific London-based Art & Design Practice know as United Visual Artists present a fantastic light-orientated piece, which won them the 2011 Creative Review Annual Award, having created this set-up in a four-storey bargehouse on the Thames riverside.
On the UVA website, the group speak of this piece, saying that “visitors were invited to immerse themselves in a massive labyrinth of laser sculptures, built on the idea of speed being light, and light being data.” If you’d like to see more from this piece, or of UVA’s many other fantastic installation pieces, head over to their website, as linked at the beginning of this post.
Caux Collective Introduces: Humans Since 1982
In what is undoubtedly my favourite piece of interactive artwork this year, this installation named ‘A Million Times’ comes from Stockholm-based Design Studio, Humans Since 1982 who debuted their monochrome masterpiece at the Design Days Dubai Fair earlier this year.
Consisting of 288 analogue clocks, this formation is ingeniously operated to provide not only fluid, mesmerising patterns using the waves created by the hands, but also minute-by-minute time updates, displayed in the style of a digital clock. If you would like to see more of this project, head over to the website or take a look on Vimeo to see this stunning piece in action.
Caux Collective Introduces: Lee Jung
If I had to pick one style of art that I feel has been overdone in the last few decades, the use of neon lights would certainly be one of them. It’s not without its merits, I just think you can have too much of a good thing. That being said, the absolutely stunning minimalist work of 40 year old, Korean Artist, Lee Jung, is an exception to the rule. These beautiful pieces really set themselves apart from others of a similar style, with their personal themes and subtle, calm tones creating a colourful ambiance across the varying locations, which adds a further dimension to each piece.
If you’d like to see more of Jung’s work, visit her profile on the website of Korean Gallery, One and J, as linked above, or head over to her profile on Artnet, where you can find more of her work.
