Dev Harlan

Dev Harlan is a multidisciplinary artist whose hybrid practice combines the physical and the virtual with the use of sculpture, light and projection. As a self educated Artist, Designer and CG Director, Devan’s uniquely identifiable aesthetic language and reductionist approach place his work at the forefront of a new mode of media arts practice.

Dark Matters

Dark Matters brings together the work of ten internationally acclaimed contemporary artists who employ a range of technologies, media and machinery. In an exhibition populated by half-seen spectres, visual riddles and distorted reflections, artists engage with ideas surrounding shadow, darkness and illusion. The works are united by themes of temporality, absence, truth, mortality and wonder. On show at the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester. 24 Sept 2011 – 15 Jan 2012.

The teaser was commissioned by Creative concern, with art direction & design by our friends at Field and sound by David Kamp.

Universal Everything x CHANEL

CHANEL invited Universal Everything to create a series of video artworks, in response to the 5 codes of Mademoiselle Chanel; Black & White / Pearls / Diamond Padding / Camellia / Art Deco.

The beautiful minimalist films were created to be adaptable to different display formats, from low-pixel building facades in Hong Kong and Tokyo, to retail LED walls in Shanghai and Los Angeles.

Topologies

Quayola is a visual artist based in London. His work simultaneously focuses on multiple forms exploring the space between video, audio, photography, installation, live performance and print. He creates worlds where real substance, such as natural or architectural matter, constantly mutates into ephemeral objects, enabling the real and the artificial to coexist harmoniously. Integrating computer-generated material with recorded sources, he explores the ambiguity of realism in the digital realm.

Sync

Max Hattler decided to portray‚ in an stunningly abstracted manner‚ the whole universe on ONE huge disk that is rotating at the same speed throughout (it rotates at 7400 degrees per second!). In his words “the camera is zooming out continuously from the centre of the disk (the beginning of time, the big bang) until the whole disk is in view (the here and now, current age of the universe). It means there is an underlying unchanging speed that rules everything.”

Best watched in full screen with the lights off and your headphones on.

Tron Experience

This is the full projection mapping sequence from the HP ePrint & TRON: Legacy Experience on the the roof of the QEH on London’s Southbank, which is on from late November – early Dec 2010.

The work was created by Guided Collective in collaboration with Flat-e / Seeper (animation and projection mapping) and Si Begg (sound design and re-jigged elements from Daft Punk’s TRON: Legacy soundtrack) as an immersive visual spectacle augmented with snippets from Daft Punk’s soundtrack and orignal sound FX from the film.

Süveyda

‘Light and dark, noise and calm, beauty, decay, pain and hope–these are the shattering contrasts that propel our lives ahead in the boundless, throbbing river of existence. None of us knows what the next moment will bring, the raptures and terrifying discoveries born with every choice. And yet, in the alternation of day and night, in the ebb and tide of the oceans, in the constant expansion and quiet contraction of our lungs in and out with each breath–we know our journey is not random chaos but a journey where every shouting supernova, every trembling cell, returns to the one perfect mystery from which we all come and go.’

Ariel

Our friends at Field have just created a digital dance performance exploring the eternal struggle of good and evil, for Stateless‘ latest single Ariel, which is soon to be released on Ninja Tune.
FIELD animated the two opponent characters of the song as surreal human figures, drawing dynamic sculptures into space. They collaborated with professional dancer Dominic North to record an impromptu interpretation of the song in a motion capture studio. There is a really interesting ‘making of’ video which can be found here.
The work was commissioned by Oscar&Ewan.
