Featured Works From the Gallery: Week 46
Our new online Gallery provides creative professionals a platform to showcase their portfolio of work, gain exposure, build their network, find collaborators, and become eligible for funding opportunities like The Studio. The Gallery also helps fans of cutting edge creative work to discover new artists and inspiring projects. Each week we’ll be selecting a few of our favourites and bringing you the best of what The Creators Project community has to offer. To have your work featured, submit your tech-powered projects to the Gallery.
Sougwen Chung’s Prélude (Étude Op. 3, No. 2) suggests, at once, great hope and total hopelessness for art in the digital age. The audiovisual performance pairs delicate light-sculpture projection with a jarring, industrial soundtrack composed by Tim Hecker called “The Work of Art in the Age of Cultural Overproduction.” Chung’s Prélude prefaces Étude Op. 3, No. 2, one of many Études she has recently completed.
Chroma[RED] uses LED light structures equipped with motion sensors to create a dialogue between the viewer and and the work. Made of translucent resin, the orbs are identical yet produce different effects—varied degrees of brightness and proximity—depending on how the viewer relates to them. The interactive installation has traveled throughout Los Angeles, CA, where artist Carlos Moncada is based, and has appeared in both public and semipublic locations.
A Dream About Circles, the first in what artist Yuka Takeda expects will be a “series of personal experiments in displaying color, form, and obsessive repetition,” takes photographs of real places and transforms them into complex geometric patterns. The photos have been processed using a filter that Takeda designed with FilterForge and Adobe Camera Raw. The final images don’t much resemble the original photos from which they derived, but there’s a bird’s eye view quality to some of Takeda’s work.
