    The Hoverboard is a project made by Nils guadagnin, a young french artist. This work is born in 2008 for an exhibition named "Back To the future". It is a copy of the hoverboard from the movie Back to the Future II. Integrated into the board and the plinth is an electromagnetic system which levitates the board. A laser system stabilises the object in the air. In the making of this work, this artist was thinking about different ways of presenting sculpture. In fact it's a reflexion on the multiple possibilities of how to give a sculpture full spatial autonomy. The project have been realised with levitation technology of crealev company. www.crealev.com more infos : www.nilsguadagnin.com - www.whiteoffice.org

    • Phillip K Smith III: Lucid Stead (Joshua Tree, California 2013)

      PHILLIP K SMITH III : Lucid Stead On the weekend of October 12th in Joshua Tree, California, artist Phillip K Smith III revealed his light based project, Lucid Stead. What was expected to be a two day event for a handful of viewers, turned into over 400 people making the journey over two weekends. People as far away as New York City and Canada traveled to the California High Desert to experience it. Numerous media sources have asked to do cover stories on the work. Thousands of photos professional and amateur, were taken, posted and shared across blogs and social media sights. In just over 30 days, Lucid Stead officially became a phenomenon. Composed of mirror, LED lighting, custom built electronic equipment and Arduino programming amalgamated with a preexisting structure, this architectural intervention, at first, seems alien in context to the bleak landscape. Upon further viewing, Lucid Stead imposes a delirious, almost spiritual experience. Like the enveloping vista that changes hue as time passes, Lucid Stead transforms. In daylight the 70 year old homesteader shack, that serves as the armature of the piece, reflects and refracts the surrounding terrain like a mirage or an hallucination. As the sun tucks behind the mountains, slowly shifting, geometric color fields emerge until they hover in the desolate darkness. This transformation also adapts personal perception, realigning one’s sensory priorities. A heightened awareness of solitude and the measured pace of the environment is realized. Smith states, "Lucid Stead is about tapping into the quiet and the pace of change of the desert. When you slow down and align yourself with the desert, the project begins to unfold before you. It reveals that it is about light and shadow, reflected light, projected light, and change." Phillip K Smith III received his Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design. He draws inspiration from the reductive logic of minimalism and the optic sensation of California's Light and Space movement. Smith’s innovation and exploitation of new technologies keeps these ideologies current. He was honored as the 2010 Artist in Residence at the Palm Springs Art Museum and was included in the exhibition, Smooth Operations: Substance and Surface in Southern California Art, alongside artists such as Peter Alexander, Larry Bell, DeWain Valentine, and Craig Kauffman at the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster CA. He has been asked to return to the museum for a solo exhibition opening in January 2014. He has been commissioned to create over a dozen monumental art works and his light based sculptures are collected Nationwide. Phillip will open a solo exhibition of lightworks at royale projects : contemporary art in Palm Desert on November 29 2013. His work will be featured at UNTITLED art fair in Miami opening December 1st. for more info visit: http://www.lucidstead.com contact: http://www.royaleprojects.com video courtesy of: Phillip K Smith, III & royale projects : contemporary art

          SEX AND VIOLENCE – A CONVERSATION WITH JANINE GORDON (30:13) Sex and Violence – A Conversation with Janine Gordon (30:13) features an interview by Indira Cesarine with contemporary artist and rapper Janine Gordon.  The artist invites us into her New York home, where she talks about her career, inspiration, and the plight of the artist in today’s world.  Her work has often been considered “Voyeuristic” yet more so in inviting the viewer to be a voyeur, than the artist as Voyeuristic.  Featuring music by Janine Gordon,  otherwise known as “JahJah”.  Edited by John Paul Zuviate.

                    Bunda Pandeiro is the first part of a trilogy that explores the rules of gender and race in the contemporary world. If you enjoyed the first of this series, please contribute to this project by "tipping" my video (clicking the green badge at the bottom of this message) and sharing this with your friends. Experience more of my work at: www.carlosampietro.com In Brazilian slang, the phrase is used to describe attractive buttocks by referring to them as a tambourine. While the ass is a universally recognized symbol of sexual allure, the film blurs lines between gender and race, reducing each participant to the utilitarian role of a musical instrument. Traditional sexual roles are also eliminated. This “body concert” is a metaphorical representation of the “tambourine,“ which has no gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation but is defined perfect simply from the sound that it makes. ART is free for everyone – a form of education and necessary function in our lives. In order for it to survive, it needs your contribution. Thank you! 谢谢. ¡Gracias! شكرا لك! Dank je wel! תודה לך!

                      138 prepared dc-motors, cotton balls, cardboard boxes 40x40x40cm Zimoun 2011 Installation view: Lydgalleriet, Bergen, Norway. Curated by Jørgen Larsson, Lydgalleriet. Assisted by Jacob Alrø, Tolga Balci, Vanessa Gageos and Florian Bürki. Website & more informaiton: http://www.zimoun.ch Compilation Video: http://vimeo.com/7235817 ___________________________________ «The sound sculptures and installations of Zimoun are graceful, mechanized works of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay between the «artificial» and the «organic». It‘s an artistic research of simple and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviors in sound and motion. Zimoun creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns.» Tim Beck «It is a poetic and humorous absurdity we find in Zimoun’s work, which opens up a wide, refreshing and enriching space for discoveries, associations and a multitude of approaches.» Nina Terry «Zimoun creates more than moving structures; he develops a space where the oeuvre, once it’s set in motion, can create itself.» Oscar Gomez Poviña «Zimoun is best compared to a watchmaker of a self-reproducing time constructing his own gauging station.» Radjo Monk «The clean, elegant sound sculptures combine visual, sonic, and spatial elements in an organically balanced entirely artwork. Using simple and well- conceived mechanical systems, Zimouns‘s work transforms and activates the space.» Jury Prix Ars Electronica 2010 «Zimoun creates complex kinetic sound sculptures by arranging industrially produced parts according to seemingly simple rules. Using motors, wires, ventilators, etc.., he creates closed systems that develop their own behavior and rules similarly to artificial creatures. Once running, they are left to themselves and go through an indeterminable process of (de)generation. These quasi autonomous creatures exist in an absolutely synthetic sphere of lifeless matter. However, within the precise, determinist systems creative categorioes suddenly reappear, such as deviation, refusal and transcience out of which complex patterns of behavior evolve.» Node10 «I perceive Zimoun’s work as a unique, playful, light-hearted, and utterly complex approach and examination of the present.» Tom Gray «The components used in Zimoun’s work are simple, functional and raw, whereas only aesthetically high-level and purposefully chosen elements and materials are used in minimalist fashion. Through radical reduction, Zimoun creates works of art which allow for a plethora of associations without being pinned down to a specific direction. Radical abstraction functions rather like a code in the background of things, thus elegantly avoiding an insinuation of direct, concrete attribution. Thanks to the abundance of mechanical activity, the range of perception, possibilities and interpretations is wide open.» Amanda Neumann «Observing Zimoun’s work opens connections to nature and natural phenomena, physics, quantum mechanics, complexity, simplicity, vitality, individuality, evolvement and growth, but also to industrialization, robotics, mass production and social phenomena, to space, architecture, cosmic white noise, phantasms and highly enjoyable experiences popping up at any moment. Art is supposed to activate and focus our attention. Zimoun’s work seems to be a sweeping and beautiful example for this.» Anton Richter «The works convince through their elegant and clever simplicity in an inconspicuously complex setting.» Stephen Braun «Zimoun’s primary instruments are entirely of his own making, each a large-scale installation of small mechanical devices — tables lined with whipping little bits of tubing, small sets of fetishistically situated mini- motors. They are architecturally precise and their beauty is forged by that precision. The meticulous engineering of Zimoun’s work is a set- up — not an end unto itself, but a staged step toward its end result, an orderly step enacted so as to let chaos flourish. His chaos takes place in close settings, in carefully defined spaces, in systems as thoroughly considered as a laboratory experiment. And the sound emited by them is not an after effect, or an afterthought. It’s a core principal of his practice.» Marc Weidenbaum http://www.zimoun.ch
