  • NG#-UC – “Unlikely Canvases”, in the full resolution version that has been shown in Washington DC in september, on a plasma philips screen hang in the sleeping room
  • NG#-SLF – “The Secret Life of Flowers”, in various incarnations: in two mirrors and in a frame in the living room
  • SATOR – “Magic Squares”, that was working horizontally in a table top and dialoguing mutely with his “counter altar” piece, a 3×3 combinatorial magic square in a small window in the kitchen
  • NG#-Dummies, also in a frame computer, changing very slowly in the shop himself, remixing shop windows dummies in ever changing combinations
  • AI – A video installation, spanning over the two plasma screen in the entrance lobby, with it’s strict aesthetics of perpetual combinations
  • EPQ-Aut – “Autumn”, A preview of a work in progress centered on the colors and shapes of autumn and their modification property on dreams, that was exposed on 3 screens in the main room of the homelab

Last but not least EPQ-JUNGLESCAPE, blossoming in full interactive version with the many people intervened to the presentation from the shopwindow itself.

The event was introduced by a speech of Emile Aarts, Vice President and Scientific Program Director at Philips Research, that recalled the role of “visionary statements” and art in research.

A brief presentation from Everts Van Loenen, Principal Scientist in the Media Interaction Group of the Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven followed.

Federico Bonelli’s short speech about the role of modernism in the development of their painting ideas, in particular starting from the sentence of Boccioni that opens also this website under the term of “concetto formale”. He followed with a small glimpse of future ideas to be researched with the new rendering platform behind EPQ.

To close the brief introduction Maurizio Martinucci spoke about the paintings in the show and about the motivation to re_search.

Some of the guests followed Federico in a tour of the premises in which he demostrated the ability of the protoquadros to open up storytelling.

In the next days will be available more pictures and a short edit of the video material we shot.

For now we want to thank warmly all people at Philips Homelab for the welcome and the intelligent respect with they have helped us to set up the showcase.

Federico BonelliYesterday, guested by the Van Abbe Museum in Groningen in a Symposium on the theme: “Urban Screens Prelude to Virtual Reality in Public Spaces?” and together with Evert van Loenen from Philips Research, I have presented a preview of the EPQ Junglescape installation.

The Symposium was part of the program of the Image Radio Festival.

The Auditorium of the Museum was decorated by the enhanced version of Unlikely Canvases, hosted into a 42″ Philips display hanged on the wall, that expressed with strength the concept of ambient aesthetics connected to the protoquadro. The film previewed with the audience in the museum will be on-line in the next days. It shows EPQ-Junglescape on the 4 windows of the Shop window installation in Homelab premises.EPQ JS HL2

Invited speaker were Mirjam Struppek, George Fifield, Evert van Loenen and Federico Bonelli, moderated and introduced by Carmin Karasic.

A short clip documenting modes of interaction between passers by and the shopwindow installation at Philips Homelab showing Junglescape was shown to a attentive audience inside Evert van Loenen presentation. Many question followed in during the panel discussion and between panelers and guests in the following dinner.
