Jacques Perconte

Funchal, 2013

Jacques Perconte has created and manipulated new videos to be exhibited in his solo exhibition called "From East to West" at Galerie Charlot next April 17 till June 7, 2014. For this exhibition, Jacques invites the viewer to a glitched trip generated through his generative processes. The continuous and progressive distortions from single film sources usually creates acid explosions of colors and unexpected abstract forms in real time. The sources manipulated for this show are an infinite flux of lanscapes from the East to the West of France. — The exhibition also will present a series of prints taken from these video pieces where the visitor could contemplate more deeply the unprecedented distorted landscapes.

grapheme by Robert Seidel

Grapheme is a new permanent installation at Museum Wiesbaden created by Robert Seidel.
"Hand-drawn sketches were the starting point for the installation grapheme. They delineate the artist’s initial creative idea and serve as the basis for the films projected, as well as for the form of the projection sculpture itself. These sketches are translations of memories and associations, which the artist, like in a diary, has captured from the most varied places and stations of life.

In the amorphous abstract films, the structural state of these sketches is translated into a temporal flow of images. Here, for example events from the past fade away and become connected in continual transformation to new experiences and impressions. The moving film image preserves this reconstruction process, without ever indicating an end-state."

Rainbow Waves by Taisuke Koyama

Taisuke Koyama went back to the rainbow gradient colour palette in 2013, I'm fan of his colourful photographic series and the experimental process he follows to get different textures on.  His first rainbow based series is called Rainbow Forms, 2009 where he took photographs of posters taken in central Tokyo using a macro lens. The second one titled Melting Rainbow, 2010 Taisuke used the posters from the previous series and placed them in the balcony of his room to make them change the process of the surface (the ink was melt with the rain and snow and became dew drops with the heat from the sunlight.) then it was photographed. And for this last series Rainbow Waves he photographed them under water. See more;

DATA DRAWINGS by Peter Jellitsch

I asked to Peter Jellitsch about the process of his Data Drawings series, whose data I thought was tracked somehow technically but Peter tells us it has been a manual work to get all the information to generate such a tridimensional volumes. 

"Like most of my work the, the primary idea for Data Drawings was to experiment with methods, which unveil visually hidden conditions. Through devices one has the possibility to literally peel-off and distinguish certain capacities as well as leave others in the dark. Data Drawings was produced during a 6 month residency at the Citè des Arts in Paris. I began to collect the bandwidth qualities of the WLAN in my studio with a simple iPhone App and wrote it down. Similar to a diary, but just with numeric information such as: Download: 972.0, Upload: 91.9, Ping 34 kB/s. 

I did this whenever I was physically in my studio. Sometimes I measured every minute, sometimes every hour. After a while, I came up with translating this informations onto a 3d grid in Rhino. Simultaneously I have experimented with drawing techniques of how to achieve something like all-over drawings which reflects back to the ideas of covering and multiplying. For each drawing I used the diagram I calculated on this specific day when I started to draw it. For me this technique allows to think about spaces in very blurred coherences, without depicting the place. On one hand you have this physical work (pencil and acrylic on paper), which is very abstract, on the other hand this abstract drawing has "real" numeric information behind every single line." - Peter Jellitsch.
