Here’s some works we’ve come across in recent days which have impressed us.
Maria Takeuchi – as·phyx·i·a
A fairly Asian-looking dance, filtered through X-Box Kinect to generate a point-cloud, rendered in disturbing style with additional lines between points to exaggerate the concept of fighting off suffocation and oppression via dance.
Jennifer Townley – kinetic sculptures.
There’s something about Townley’s kinetic sculptures – the curves, in conjunction with the rhythm of the motors, evokes an oddly feminine form, despite the obvious mechanistic nature.
Metropol Parasol in Seville
In another case of using flat planes to create curves, this cloud-like structure dwarfs its surroundings and shows some really creative uses of interlocking panels.
