Kari Altmann

Kari Altmann's video pieces from the CORE SAMPLES series are based on an online research whose pictures present different round objects of the same or similar color and are animated through the morphing effect. Because of this effect the viewer keep mesmerized by following the red, black or white point with the view. 
Altmann started this project some years ago, back in 2008, but it is still an ongoing research and the videos are being updated as Kari finds more content to continue it. (You can see the updates on the comments of each video at vimeo, they have been recently updated btw). See more; 

Where is the Blood?, 2009 and Black Hole, 2008 are being part of the ongoing group exhibition at Seventeen Gallery here in London. I highly recommend to attend it and see other great works by Merce Cunningham, Harm van den Dorpel, Michael Guidetti, Oliver Laric, Mark Leckey, Sean Raspet, Emanuel Rossetti, Hito Steyerl and Artie Vierkant. The exhibition is titled "Motion" and curated by Ceci Moss and Tim Steer.
