SKALAR immersive installation combines light and music

SKALAR immersive installation combines light and music

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

There are no longer any barriers between electronic music and art, on the contrary, these two disciplines are increasingly overlapping to offer the public a single total immersive experience. SKALAR is a spectacular installation born from the collaboration between the light designer Christopher Bauder and the French musician Kangding Ray.

SKALAR is based on the theory of the American psychologist Robert Plutchik, who considers emotions as an adaptive response, which is why the work was conceived in a huge space: the physical components of the installation are suspended from the ceiling, are moved up and down so that the kinetic mirrors interact with the beams of colored light alter the perception of the surrounding space.

Meditative sounds are combined with slowly moving lights, while marked rhythms are combined with patterns that flash rapidly.

Below is the video of the performance of the two artists:

The Handmaid’s Tale, season 3 comes on June 5th!

The Handmaid’s Tale, season 3 comes on June 5th!

the handmaids tale | Collater.al

The Handmaid’s Tale, the TV series distributed by Hulu, is the TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel that tells the story of Gilead, which was once the United States, and which has become a totalitarian country based on strict rules that point to an obsessive and sick return to “tradition”.

The second season, which ended in July 2018, left us with a thousand questions and with the hope that June/Difred, the protagonist played by Elisabeth Moss, could lead a real revolution, supported by all the other Handmaids. The trailer published a few hours ago raises our expectations. We see in fact what would seem to be an entire army of Handmaids, Serena who takes the side of June and the latter who finds herself with her daughter, but to get all the confirmations to our assumptions we will have to wait until June 5, 2019

Meanwhile, we know that for the third season have been reconfirmed all the actors of the previous ones, including Joseph Fiennes and among the new faces include Christopher Meloni (Law & Order, Oz) and Elizabeth Reaser (Hill House, Twilight). 

Watch the trailer for The Handmaid’s Tale below!

Reservoir, the installation that collects rainwater

Reservoir, the installation that collects rainwater

Claudia Fuggetti · 9 months ago · Art

John Grade, an American artist we had the pleasure of talking about earlier here, has placed his latest installation Reservoir inside the Parco di Arte Sella in Borgo Valsugana. The work consists of five thousand droplet shaped ampoules, each of which is delicately attached to translucent nets, supported by tree trunks.

The artist has explained that:

“I became most interested in the way rain falls through this grove of trees, the canopy delaying the droplet’s journey to the ground as well as how quiet and sheltered the forest was during a heavy rain”.

The installation is built with thermoformed plastic parts and steam-bent Alaska cedar strips: each droplet is attached to fishing line nets which are then incorporated with stainless steel rings to maintain tension and support the tree trunks above the structure.

The shape of the containers is given by casts of hands placed in a cup, when the rain falls or the snow settles, the water accumulates inside the transparent bags of Reservoir, giving them the shape of a drop.

The Volkswagen Camper completely built with LEGO

The Volkswagen Camper completely built with LEGO

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art, Style

Last week, at the f.re.e – Travel and Leisure Fair in Munich, was presented a Volkswagen Camper of real size, but entirely built with the famous LEGO bricks. 

The work was carried out by two LEGO certified master makers who, to achieve the final result, took 6 whole weeks and 400 thousand bricks. Obviously, this motorhome is not driveable, but it can bear the weight of two adults, which means that it can be visited inside to discover that the interior is also made of LEGO, such as the brushes, the electric plate, the radio, the sink, the dishes and all the furniture.

With its lights and sliding door, it seems that the only thing this Volkswagen motorhome can’t do is move, but for now we just have to admire its beauty.

Mambo Tattooer’s pop and colorful tattoos

Mambo Tattooer’s pop and colorful tattoos

Giulia Guido · 9 months ago · Art

The keyword for Milanese tattoo artist Mattia Mambo, better known as Mambo Tattooer, is to simplify. Mattia is inspired by everything that surrounds him, objects, TV series, film characters, works of art, takes the shapes and colors and simplifies them, creating a stylized image of the original subject. 

But beyond that, his tattoos would be recognizable among a thousand thanks to a unique style characterized by two key elements. The first is the full, vivid backgrounds with clear outlines. The second are the black lines, clean, big, as if they were made by setting the tattoo artist’s pen on “Bold”. 

The result is a pop tattoo, with pop subjects and a pop style. 

Discover Mambo Tattooer’s works in our gallery and on his Instagram profile.
