Urs Fischer’s Things as metaphor of accumulation

Urs Fischer’s Things as metaphor of accumulation

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

Walking down the 551st Avenue in New York, at Gagosian Gallery you could meet a life-size metallic rhinoceros. It’s Things, Swiss artist Urs Fischer’s last work. The aluminum sculpture attracts with a magnetic presence several man-made objects: a table, a car door, a chair, a vacuum cleaner, a boot, a handbag; all made in aluminum. We, as the rhinoceros, absorb everything around us and every day we move through all these things. The sculpture is the result of eight years of work and considerations about how and what we accumulate in our individualized words and it shows perfectly Fischer’s unique and subversive approach to art.

Emiliano Ponzi’s VR illustration for Pirelli

Emiliano Ponzi’s VR illustration for Pirelli

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

Data Meets Passion is the theme of 2017 Pirelli Annual Report, focused on the company digital transformation, the craft-digital experiences of 5 Italian makers and, in general, the role played by the digital in the today society.

Pirelli called Emiliano Ponzi, one of today’s leading illustrator, to provide an artistic interpretation of these stories. The Italian artist challenged himself and his work with the latest frontier of digital illustration: the virtual reality. For the occasion he has designed five 360° synesthetic virtual rooms using the Google Tilt Brush technology. Each room interprets the story of a contemporary revolution: the digital transformation undertaken by 5 Italian entrepreneurs who saw in the digital the way to reshape their traditional businesses sector.
For example, one of these stories talks about the Druetta brothers, two younger upholsterers, who revamped the family business with 3D design and a virtual room can see their finished product.

You can find the 3D experience on Pirelli official website and on Emiliano Ponzi’s official website.

Immersive installations, the ambitious project by teamLab

Immersive installations, the ambitious project by teamLab

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Art

The immersive installations of teamLab are a sensory experience of three hundred and sixty degrees. The spectator becomes protagonist and part of this parallel world, of which we had already spoken here.
TeamLab is a particularly innovative Japanese collective: it’s an interdisciplinary creative group that brings together professionals from various fields of practice in the digital society.

Artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians, architects, graphic designers and web and print editors such as “ultra-technologists“, the studio aims to achieve a balance between art, science, technology and creativity.

This summer, teamLab is opening a large-scale digital art museum in the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo. The immersive museum presents multiple three-dimensional spaces arranged on an overwhelming 10,000 square meter scale and uses 520 computers and 470 projectors.
To describe this huge system they use the term “borderless teamLab“, it represents the nature of structures without boundaries that transcend the various rooms, crawl in them, communicate with other works of art and sometimes blend with them.

La Plaza es Nuestra, Escif’s new mural

La Plaza es Nuestra, Escif’s new mural

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

Escif’s new work is a great mural made in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, near Barcelona, called La Plaza es Nuestra.
The Spanish street artist, in collaboration with Contorno Urbano and Kaligrafics (two main characters in Spanish public art), pays tribute to one of most important historical events of the city, which during the Franco regime fight for the freedom of its square.

In 1977 some citizens of La Salud opposed with courage against the construction of a gas station. During a night they buried the cement mixer, covered it with ground and, in the end, they plant a tree on it. Still today the cement mixer is under the square.

With this mural, Escif wants to put the accent on the importance to fight and he wants to remember personal stories and the voices of whom passed away. Because of the importance of this neighborhood, he dedicated his work to all the inhabitant of it.

The couple Carrey-Gondry strikes again in the tv show Kidding

The couple Carrey-Gondry strikes again in the tv show Kidding

Andrea Jean Varraud · 1 year ago · Art
We saw Jim Carrey disappear from the big and small screen and now we are seeing his return on the screens. This time he is going to come back with Kidding, a tv show directed by Michel Gondry with Carrey as the protagonist.
The story deals with Mr. Pickles, an icon of the childhood entertainment, who have to face some family problems like the divorce or the lack of estimate from his son. We will see a happy famous man who has the chance to analyze himself in order to put his life together. The film is dramedy in which humanity and tenderness are the main points.
We have already watched the couple Gondry/Carrey in one of the most influent films of our time: Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. So the expectation is very high. The series will be distributed by Showtime and it will come out in the US the 9 of September.
