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.”

The United States, 2006

The United States, 2006. A top view blueprint drawing of the US Bush Administration, taken from a news photograph, maps out and analyzes the essence of scene. Within the duration of the 4 week exhibit, the blueprint drawing, exposed to direct sunlight will begin to fade away.

AllThatBrightMorning

all that bright morning scattered consists of three layers: A back layer of a painting of three female figures on acetate, a front layer of a line drawing on mylar and, in between, a layer of fine blond hair. This fits within the frame of the window and is backlit by the almighty sun.

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

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.

Paul Benney is a performance artist who likes to move people.

Wes Heiss is a visual artist and designer whose work explores humanities relationship with technology.

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.

Light Studies

LightStudies2Light Studies plays with reflected, refracted, diffuse and specular light; placed near sun-filled windows, these elemental pieces have a complex presence that changes with both the angle of daylight and the position of the viewer.
