These two pictures represent an art project titled “Light Echoes” realized by Aaron Koblin and Ben Tricklebank. Last year they mounted a laser on a custom-made crane above a moving train, rolling through Southern California, that projected images on the ground, creating “echoes” on the tracks and around the train. The images were also projected against the rural and rustic countryside.
In this project Koblin used technology to manipulate and transform how we look at the world.
Ravenna – Italy. “Visioni di Eterno” is a project realized by the artist Andrea Bernabini for the historical city of Ravenna. The aim was not just to rise again the antique monuments that have been really important and rich during the Roman Empire, but also to emerge the diffusion of the new digital art.
Olafur Eliasson, “Multiple shadow house”, 2010. When a body enters the space and begins to interact with the light installation, beautiful and subtle overlaid visions of their shadow fan across the screens. In this way the project is a creative collaboration between the artist, viewer, space and technology. Essentially the artwork is redundant without the presence of the figure.
Every July, as part of Ágitagueda art festival, hundreds of umbrellas are hung over promenades in the streets of Águeda, a municipality in Portugal. The installation not only adds happiness to people and color to the otherwise plain streets, but also creates a much needed shade from the heat.
“Metalmorphosis” is a mirrored water fountain by Czech sculptor David Černý. The creation consists of nearly 40 steel pieces grouped into 7 segments which independently rotate 360-degrees, and the mouth spits water into a huge pool in which it sits. This is just one of many sculptures in all around the world the are technologic and artistic at the same time.
