Sebastian Hempel




I love the profile of Sebastian Hempel. He has been creating installations for several years and experimenting with all kind of kinetic sculptures specially from the field of lighting and interactivity, developing interesting optical illusions. With his view of moving objects, aesthetic as well as formal, Hempel has a direct influence on the spacial perception and sensory experience of the viewer.
Into this post you can see some of his projects which I have selected, but in his site you will find many more. Thanks to Today and Tomorrrow for finding this great artist! See more;

"Though his work substantially deals with the phenomena of light, space and time, velocity and sound, perception and motility, it is in the manipulative investigations born of an »experimental play« with these issues that the essence of Hempel’s work resides. Therefore the nature of curiosity, problems to be solved, puzzlement and subsequent dicovery, are integrated into his sculptural and spatial undertakings from the very beginning.
But to mention play inevitably alludes to pleasure and fun, to the artist’s optical games as well as the spatial actions he provokes. His developing of human sensory experiences of either of an optical or aural nature, mediated though a motile and spatial impulse, is an omnipresent feature found within all his sculptural works and installations." - Mark Gisbourne, Galerie baer.
