From November to January 2014, Muriel Guépin Gallery in NY was the home to ‘Bright Matter’, an exhibition of enigmatic works by five international artists widely recognized for their spatial-aesthetic research, creative engineering, and stunning perceptual hacks. We check in with the event’s instigator, curator, and participating artist Joanie Lemercier for a report, the back story, and a 2015 teaser.
Illusive rear-projections, flickering moirés, fluorescent puzzle boxes: opening this Friday, November 21st, at Muriel Guépin Gallery in New York City is ‘Bright Matter’, a dazzling group show that’ll bend, warp and (if only briefly) break the way we see.
Created by LAb[au], Moza1que (French word for mosaic) is a permanent artwork for ‘La Maison Mécatronique’ in Annecy-Le-Vieux, France. The main wall of the entrance hall 3.4m x 6m is divided in 26×15 squares, each motorised by a linear actuator with a range of 10cm. The individual control of the motion creates different three-dimensional reliefs of geometric patterns […]
‘Signal To Noise’ is the latest installation by LAb[au], immersing the spectator in patterns of sonic motion produced by 512 recycled mechanical split-flaps.
Last week we posted about the new installation by David Letellier and Lab [au] for their gallery in Brussels. Now we have some great new details, supplied by Jerome Decock of Lab[au]. The installation was inspired by the notion of “tessellation”, a term applied to the geometric subdivision of a surface into plane units. It includes […]
Tessel is a collaboration between David Letellier and Lab [au], a Brussels based transdisciplinary studio.The kinetic installation investigates the perception of sound and space, inspired by the notion of “tessellation”, a term applied to the geometric subdivision of a surface into plane units. Tessellation has been applied throughout history from ancient to modern times, from two […]
