They probably are a big dose of self confidence with the right light and filters, but besides those moments of beauty, what selfies give us?

A similar consideration is at the base of the installation of the design collective panGeneratorhash2ash – everything saved will be lost, realized for the Nation Museum of Etnography of Warsaw during their exhibition TEEN CHANGE.

Visitors are invited to send a selfie to the installation’s website and in few moment they will see it turned into gravel.

It has no essence, no consistent form, it seems just a mass without significance, the destiny, that, according to the collective, is what technology and the practice of taking photos of ourself will face. As the title suggests, everything that we save is destined to oblivion, to that inconsistent mass of gravel that with their installation we can make slip among our hands like our memories of beauty.

So Close, at the Armory Show a new JR’ installation

So Close, at the Armory Show a new JR’ installation

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

It’s only been two days since the last time we spoke about JR, the multifaceted French artist who becomes more and more one of the pillars of contemporary public art.
But, set asides the Oscars, for which he was competing with the documentary Visage Villages, he started talking again about his political opinion with the new edition of the New York Armory Show, inaugurated today, Thursday 8 March.

His huge installations are back and they return with two of the themes he cares about the most, global immigration policies and all the issues related to the refugee crisis.
After having fought against Trump’s policies with Kikito and Giant Picnic, it’s now the turn of So Close, a project with which he retraces the journey he made in 2017 in a Jordan refugee camp, through the faces of the people who are experiencing the drama of the Syrian war.

The giant images will be fixed on the exhibition entrance wall until March 11th, to be immediately visible to all the visitors.

So Close is also strongly tied to another of his most famous works,”Unframed“, conceived by the artist in 2014 for Ellis Island, a place that in the 20th century was a symbol of new life for all those people who had crossed the sea to reach it and start again.

Short video for Breakfast – Volumes, the hypnotic dance of Maxim Zhestkov’ particles

Short video for Breakfast – Volumes, the hypnotic dance of Maxim Zhestkov’ particles

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

In Volumes, Moscow artist Maxim Zhestkov‘s latest work, motion design and patterns of natural inspiration merge together to explore this combination through the rhythmic movement of billions colored particles.

During the entire video, the particles evolve inside a gallery as if they were driven by an invisible force, taking on the shape of a new digital sculpture in each frame.

The particles communicate with each other as if they were autonomous and imitate movements similar to those of the oceans, the swelling of the waves, the freedom and strength of nature.

“They dance, play and communicate with each other in an eternal hypnotic ballet governed by the invisible wind of fate.”
