A Perfect Day, 1999 

The piece existed solely on the evening of the opening and consisted in the presentation to the public of the gallerist Massimo De Carlo of Milan literally affixed to the wall by adhesive tape, that almost entirely covered him, like a grotesque but not less striking crucifixion.

In last weeks post, we saw how the motion of particles that move along straight lines creates the illusion of a spinning circle. This time we actually let the individual particles move in circular paths and observe various patterns that result when the relative phase of each particle is varied. Here, “phase” just means where along the circular path a certain particle is when compared to the others.

In the first animation, each of the particles arrive at the edge of the black circle at the same time to create the effect of a spinning and contracting/expanding circle.

In the second animation, the particles are phased just right to create the illusion of a circle that slides along the edge of the black circle. This is similar to the Tusi motion from the previous post except in this instance the circle doesn’t spin.

In the third animation, the phases are adjusted to make it seem like the particles move along a straight line that spins around, but really each particle is still only moving along a circular path. This is a somewhat opposite effect from the Tusi motion where the particles were always moving along straight lines.

Inspired by the not-Tusi-couple.

Alfonso Batalla (b.1958, Spain) - Prefabricated life

Capturing abandoned buildings in a complete state of disrepair, spanish artist Alfonso Batalla has photographed them for the Prefabricated life series. The images reveal a city that has been uninhabited since 1986, with the apartments left to crumble since they were initially conceived. Depicting an eerie atmosphere, the work is the result of two different trips, both in winter and autumn to achieve variation in the lighting. The rooms expose floors that bend, painted cracking walls, and paper falling across the spaces at random, showing the decoration and remnants of families that once lived there. (src. Designboom)

KARA WALKER DOMINO SUGAR FACTORY

We finally made it to Kara Walker’s Installation at the Domino Sugar Factory in Brooklyn. The exhibit was mind blowing - from it’s stature, to it’s overwhelming, beautiful conceptual execution. Very unexpected was the nauseating smell of burnt sugar that permeated the hot factory.

The lines were long - but hey, we waited till the last day so we expected it. Surprisingly, the slow walk from 8th street to 1st was anything but boring - each street coveting a some great public art - there were murals, a yarn bomb from Oleck…you get the drift.

From Creative Time:

“At the behest of Creative Time Kara E. Walker has confected: The Subtlety or the Marvelous Sugar Baby an Homage to the unpaid and overworked Artisans who have refined our Sweet tastes from the cane fields to the Kitchens of the New World on the Occasion of the demolition of the Domino Sugar Refining Plant.”

Ernest Zacharevic (Lithuania/Malaysia)

Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic turns the corners of towns into a brilliant series of interactive murals. He first creates a setting mixing paint and real objects in an ordinary alley, then invites people to interact with this scene and takes pictures of their propositions. The goal is to guarantee the consistency between the setting and the participant to make the scene as lively as possible. Since Zacharevic was given the mission to embellish the Malay city of Penang, he settled there and spread his participative art through the run down streets of the city. His interactive murals have become a landmark in Malaysia. (cf. Street art community)
