Vanitas Machine – The transience and extension of life

Created by Verena Friedrich, Vanitas Machine explores the desire for eternal life and the potential of life-prolonging measures. Vanitas Machine is comprised of a candle placed in the centre of glass which protects it from environmental factors and controls it’s lifespan by regulating the oxygen supply.

Homo Ludens’ Playground – Mattia Casalegno

Mattia Casalegno (multifaceted Italian artist based in Los Angeles, 1981) takes inspiration from disciplines such as anthropology, biology, ecology, and neurosciences, deploying a vast array of technologies and expressive forms, with a natural inclination for new media languages.

Looks Like Music – Yuri Suzuki at Mudam 2013

For its summer project in 2013, Mudam’s Publics Department invited Yuri Suzuki to conceive Looks Like Music, an audiovisual installation based on his work with Colour Chaser – beautifully designed but minimal vehicle that detects and follows a black line whilst it reads crossing coloured lines and translates them as RGB data into sound.
