Jan Bäcklund, b. 1966, Västerås, 30 km south of Sala. Bureaugrapher.

“I can’t say very much about the works, apart from them being drawings. They could have any title. Drawings would be fine. They will probably get their own titles when they are made. They will be about dust/shadows.”

Little revolutions for an old mill

LittleRevolutions

Swung Into Blue

LittleRevolutions2Little revolutions for an old mill  The viewers lie in a vat from the mill. A speaker hangs from a long cable and is set into a swinging motion as an atmospheric sound score passes back and forth just over the viewers body in the space hovering above.

Elaine Buckholtz’s work explores the medium of light as both an ephemeral phenomenon and as an intervention to unmask hidden aspects of architectural forms and landscapes. She is interested in poetic renderings that infuse space with image and light.

Floor Vahn’s sound installations traverse new media, engage with composition, gesture to sound/image mappings, synthesis techniques and collaborative improvisation.

The sound is at once luring then disquieting. There is a dim blue light cast in the wooden room and against the far wall a perforated disc of clean white light is spinning in a lulling motion producing a calming effect along the walls of the silo. As the speaker comes to a slowing halt, the next viewer enters the space and lies down to experience the audio-visual score.

‘I really like the notion that this piece is trying to get away from you and defies your attempt to see it clearly. One can only be present while it slowly and sweetly slips back into the blackness.’

Light Does not Bend- A film of a drawn interpretation of Isaac Newtons book “Optiks”.

The table is filled with set pieces (rekvisita) that are used in the film. One can use and discover the objects and their scale, size and microscopic relationship to each other, in a way that Newton used basic material to understand more universal questions of shape, time and movement through space.

Shadow Hop

shadowhop2

shadowhopShadow Hop. The frog, historically a symbol of fertility because of it’s ease of reproducing itself, appears to hop around the center of the wheel. The nature of our perception is to anticipate or expect what is familiar – the gap or lapse of sensory information, a ”shadow” between glimpses in the linear progression, creates a sense of continuity.

Since 1985 Russel Busch has been an independent contractor and consultant for artists and designers

“All parts of the psyche carry shadows, and the Self, as the brightest of all the archetypes carries the darkest shadow of all– one that may or may not be reflected in mirrors.”

Esprit Jouffret’s Theory about the 4th dimension

4thEsprit Jouffret’s Theory about the 4th dimension

David Kranz. Since 1987 I have researched and worked with the stereoscopic image.

Duchamp’s “Large Glass” is based, among many other things on a philosophical concept that goes back to Plato. Jouffrets theory explained metaphorically through shadows: In our three-dimensional world a shadow is two dimensional, so a shadow thrown by a figure from a four-dimensional world would be three dimensional in our world. “Everything that has a three-dimensional shape is a projection of our world from a four-dimensional world, and my bride, for example, is a three-dimensional projection of a four-dimensional bride. Okay. Since it’s in glass it’s flat, because my bride is a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional Bride, which also is a four-dimensional projection of the bride’s three-dimensional world. ”
Marcel Duchamp

Latitude Lamp

Latitude Lamp, a solar lamp made for 41 degrees latitude, can be configured in three variations with the solar panel facing south, its LED lights pointing in a range of directions at night and its multi-facetted surfaces changing with the sunlight throughout the day. By tilting the angle of the solar panel, the lamp can be adapted to any geographic location, assembled in various ways into screens, or blown up to inhabitable scale.

Uplook

Uplook is a timed-based performance piece that upends the space and allows participants a studied and meditative view of the ceiling of The Kulturmollan. Using sound, light and a fractured narrative, the viewers are transported through the space on a reclined platform, with Benney serving as an absurdist tour guide.

RGBeam2RGBeam consists of red, green and blue plastic stretch-wrap stretched sequentially between the building’s beams.

Ben Colebrook lives with his wife and daughter in New York City and upstate New York, where he reflects on culture and nature by the simplest means necessary.

From our contemporary perspective, the Flour Mill, stripped of its original function, feels so distant from our nascent digital age. It represents a beautifully crafted effort, unpretentious solidity and physical human effort. The Flour Mill’s massive beams are here juxtaposed with low-tech attempt at creating video screen/projector light.

 

Rolls of red, green and blue stretch-wrap, an industrial packaging material, are deployed and layered to create a subtle shift in color and glassy reflective qualities. The deep shadows resulting from the thrifty paucity of windows amplify the plastic’s qualities, transforming the ordinary material into an ephemeral ‘beam of light’. The re-purposing of the industrial plastic is like an inexpensive emulation of digital video reproduction and as it fails in its realism, so the typical simulacra, remains authentic.

The Red Mill

RedMill2The Red Mill is a light sculpture on the outside of the building, visible at twilight and dusk. On the front side of the building the windows create a triangle of red light.

Elaine Buckholtz is an artist with a background in lighting design and light based installation. Her work explores the medium of light as both an ephemeral phenomenon and as an intervention to unmask hidden aspects of architectural forms found in urban settings and landscapes.

This is an old technology that, because it’s so simple, never gets old. A collection of different transparencies can be moved over the surface to create a short looping animation with a 3D quality to it. It requires being active and in the present to see them.

It is quite difficult to provide info about it. I can’t describe it. I’ve created the piece from the notes I hear in my head. It’s based on a synth-loop that goes around all the time, which I then build on with other instruments. Pretty clean and simple. Not very vocal.
