    Mandala Naya [ 3 different Mandalas are part of Blue Decline installation ] is on view in the small gallery. Deriving from the Sanskrit word for “ circle “, a mandala is an artistic representation of the cosmos, and is used in Eastern religious traditions as a focus for meditation. Using the now-ubiquitous plastic water bottle, Landry's mandalas conjure shadow versions of this spiritual symbol. Each of Landry's mandalas is created from only one kind of bottle, and bears the name of the brand of water it once held, i.e., Mandala Evian. In Mandala Naya, a laundry basket ringed with water bottles is attached to the wall. A tripod, supporting a light attached to a mechanized arm, stands in front of the basket. As the arm moves forward, the light shines through the holes of the basket and through the water bottles, creating a startlingly beautiful shadow that stretches across the wall. This is the reward for watching Mandala Naya for its entire one-minute cycle; just as with traditional mandalas, the time required to experience the work makes it an object of contemplation. (excerpts from the pamphlet : Flying School and Mandala Naya, Rice Gallery, 2005)

              Circle Gunda Förster http://www.gunda-foerster.de/pieces/e_circle.html Illuminated exhibition October 2012 - Feb 2013 http://www.derbyquad.co.uk/exhibition/illuminated In Circle the source of light describes a wide circling movement. This is not a pendulum measuring the limits of amplitude or the revolution of the earth but rather a seemingly endless cyclically orbital movement recalling the motion of the planets. The length of the pendulum induces slow, circling movement, which exerts a mesmerizing magical pull on viewers. The source of light moving through its courses inevitably recalls the magic pendulums with which truths and falsehoods, beneficial or malignant forces are divined. The moving light—always returning, only to vanish again—guides viewers’ gaze. The speed of the source of light makes it possible to recognize spatial areas caught by the beams of light yet withdraws them again immediately from sharp focus on the visual plane. Our instinctive urge is to react to the movement since a potential danger emanates from it. Therefore our gaze is compelled to follow the source of light as it circles. The light bulb swinging in rotation, however, prevents the necessary change in the field of vision which would actually make focusing sharply possible. The repetition of movement alone calms the eye since it need not react in frenzied spontaneity. Instead a trance-like state of seeing is induced, in which perception commutes between expectation and recollection in a continuously changing charged field. Shadowy regions emerge continually to move, wax and wane again. They arouse the impression that it is not the source of light which is wandering through the room but rather that the room is moving about the source of light. By virtue of being closed, the circle refers to infinity or rather the suspension of time, thus annulling the spatial continuum.

                What happens when game designers are approached by a museum to transform an existing masterpiece into an interactive work of art? Then you get Monobanda’s project Light on Wood. The Centraal Museum in Utrecht approached us to add a new ‘layer’ to one of their most distinguishing works of art. The 1000 years old Utrecht Ship! Inspired by the identity and stories of the ship, we’ve designed the interpassive light installation Light on Wood. This installation rewards visitors who stand still and let themselves be guided by the stories of the ship. The more quiet the audience moves around the ship, the more the ship will reveal about itself. The ship reacts to visitors by means of abstract stories visualised through light and sound. Depending on the number of people in the room, the ship will choose between a more reserved form of communicating or more of a grand performance on the opposite. But interaction is all about listening and paying attention. Only when the visitor halts, the ship will make contact and reward you for your attention. The light art has become part of the ship. It’s a synthesis of an archaeological masterpiece and a modern work of art. Licht op Hout verandert een 1000 jaar oud schip in een interactief kunstwerk. In samenwerking met het Centraal Museum voegde Monobanda een nieuwe laag toe aan een archeologische topstuk. Het 1000 jaar oude Utrechtse Schip! Geïnspireerd door de identiteit en verhalen van het schip maakte Monobanda de interpassieve lichtinstallatie Licht op Hout. Deze installatie beloont bezoekers om stil te blijven staan en zich mee te laten voeren. Het schip reageert op bezoekers door middel van een abstracte verhalen van licht en geluid. Afhankelijk van het aantal mensen in de ruimte zal het schip kiezen voor ingetogen communicatie, of juist een grootse vertoning. Maar communicatie draait om luisteren en aandacht. Pas als de bezoeker stilstaat zal het schip contact met je leggen en je belonen voor je aandacht. Licht op Hout is een synthese van een archeologisch topstuk en een modern kunstwerk. www.monobanda.nl www.lichtophout.nl www.centraalmuseum.nl ---------------------------------------------------------------- In opdracht van Centraal Museum Utrecht Partners: Rajiv Krijnen (Technisch ontwerp) BUBO Media(Projectmanagement) Art2B2 (Hardware constructie) Claynote (Adaptive sound design) ProtoTim (Sensorsysteem) Wes Animation (3D visual support) http://www.rajivkrijnen.nl http://www.linkedin.com/in/evamarsalkova http://www.art2b2.nl http://www.claynote.nl http://www.prototim.nl http://www.wesvdes.com

                    Concept: The power of One. Many Ones. Inspiration is Contagious. It begins with you. Be part of the movement to end extreme poverty. Visual Concept: Rippling influence from a single voice expands outward until the audience is networked through overlapping, engaged circles which then reach out into the world. Video projection of expanding circles glides over the Global Citizen Festival audience, modeling their voice in light, which builds up to the gesture of global-outreach through the release of sky trackers. A proposal by artist Christine Sciulli for an light installation to be projected onto the audience during the Global Citizen Festival, which intends to raise awareness and recruit activists to help fight global poverty. The concert is Saturday September 28th on the Great Lawn of Central Park, NYC. The headliners include Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Kings of Leon and John Mayer.
