Francois Dallegret, Space City - Astronef 732 Space City, 1963, an early Graphic ink drawing
Dallegret concieved a Space City to be shot to Mars for the purpose of studying reactions of younger generations to conditions of extreme crowding in relation to speed. Dallegret aligned himself with the great innovators of the 20th century, Le Corbusier, Buckmaster Fuller (who exhibited a geodesic dome at the Expo ‘67) and Joe Colombo, whose vision of streamlined modular living corresponded with Dallegret’s own futurism.
A digital art display platform from Japan with motion detection, available in two sizes - kickstarter video embedded below:
FRAMED is an Internet connected display that allows you to showcase artwork in a way that has never been done before.
Designed to be the world’s first canvas for the art of our generation, allowing you to experience and enjoy beautiful art within a normal, everyday setting. Perfect for creators and fans of visual culture alike, hang it on your wall, choose an artwork, and transform your space into a living, virtual gallery of creative expressions.
The evolution of technology and accessibility of the internet has brought out an expansive range and depth in digital art, and now, FRAMED can bring digital art into your everyday.
Over the course of a year, we’ve built two sizes (24-inch / 40-inch) with immense care and attention to craftsmanship. Every unit contains a gorgeous full-HD display, graphics processing, integrated inputs, and motion sensors within a mere 18mm (0.7 inches) in depth. We’ve created a minimalist object as the perfect backdrop for showcasing artwork, while maintaining powerful features to allow each frame to be totally unique, and exactly what you, the creator, makes of it.
The train project is an ongoing body of speculative investigation into the language and aesthetics of transport culture by artists HeHe. They propose personal rail travel as a temporary, imaginary solution to question our industrialised conscience in relation to locomotion.
Onion Skin, an installation by Olivier Ratsi [Antivj / Fr] Concept & visual content: Olivier Ratsi Music: Thomas Vaquié
Onion Skin is a new immersive installation by Olivier Ratsi, an artist on the ANTIVJ visual label.
The first stage in the Echolyse project, which will give birth to several variations around the same concept, Onion Skin is made up of a physical dimension – a module of two walls, positioned at right angles – augmented by a projection and a 5.1 sound broadcast.
Onion Skin is a graphical work about the re-composition of time and space through a game of perspectives, both of the exhibition space itself and that of the projection canvas. Built around a progressive structure, made up of 4 parts lasting 14 minutes in total, the piece plays on the principle of repetition and scale to create a physical and hypnotic experience that opens doors onto the hidden and untouchable.
The whole experience of the installation is based on a very specific point of view. A precise position from which a new dimension is revealed to the audience by anamorphosis. The simple geometric elements (“peelings”) that seemed to be flat at first suddenly start delimiting a new space. The illusion of a new dimension within the installation slowly appears as the onion skins seem to be leaving their physical surface behind. A 5.1 surround sound set-up accentuates the physical dimension of the installation, strengthening and playing with the impression of volume and space.
