Opens today up in Eindhoven CRE 2009, the annual internal showcase for Philips Research.
As happened before CRE is a platform to show some new work of the protoquadro kind for SUb multimedia re_search lab members. This year a preview of a new work is exposed on the walls of the Hospitality Center: SPQICE-Triptych-B.
The new piece, has been begotten by the same research that created the ICE piece for Berlin Transmediale and EPQ-B; a quest for a generative object, conceived to be hang on a wall and stand as a painting will changing slowly in unpredictable ways connected to his “inner law of evolution”.
Is composed using a selection pictures from ice formations on water, frost, crystals and snow, and a set of images of a female body covered with clay, taken between 2008 and 2009 in North european winters. The photos are expression of a ongoing research on the colors and geometries that are generated by states of water, in particular, for this one, by the solid: ice, snow, crystals, frost.
The triptych hangs on the wall to open up a vertical dimension in the space. Traditionally conceived, to help raise the eyes up. Is also a painting about the search for an archetype, a set of transformational rules that stands into the everyday visual mind scape to alter our perception of it. A slightly unsettling, dangerous idea of beauty that stands behind the image and the way it changes.
