Mona Lisa 2.0

BY STEFAN VAN RIJN
@ VOL 10 ON APR 22, 2014

Mona Lisa 2.0 is an online project providing insight into the wide range of digital reproductions of the 'Mona Lisa' on the internet. Exploration based on  composition and themes (such as color, shape, context and perception) unveals an exciting visual discovery. Ironically new critical pieces of art resurrect from the ashes of the broken reproduced Mona Lisa. This discovery is a critical statement about the malleability, manipulation and sometimes crudity of the Internet.

Between reality and routine

BY CHLOÉ JARRY
@ VOL 8 ON JUL 04, 2014

In her work, Chloé Jarry conjures situations where art meets everyday life. She likes the indistinct sphere where these two realities mingle and interconnect, evoquing a never-ending dialogue between one and the other.
She has chosen the technique of earthenware as a material permitting me to mould and copy everyday objects : light bulbs, electrical sockets, adaptors, carpet slippers, grab-handles, pegs, plastic bottles forgotten on a bedside table... The technique of earthenware transforms the original object. During the steps of moulding, drying, and firing, the object gets distorted in a way that I cannot, and don’t wish to control, and my sculptures bear the traces of these accidents. Here’s what she is most interested in, as opposed to, for instance, a brand new and perfectly cast light switch freshly coming out of the production chain. I voluntarily keep the traces of my manipulation, I even leave the jagged edge you get during the process of casting. The hardly distorted form gives an impression of strangeness.
Her sculptures fully live in the space she offer to them. Discreet, they won’t change its function in the slightest, their presence will simply mark it in a subtle way, like appendixes from a parallel world.
She reproduces objects which are so typical for everyday life we don’t notice them any longer. Thus, her work offers a new regard on form, function, and space. {in French}

Contraires, Attention Danger! - Beware of Opposites!

BY MARIE STEFFENS
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 20, 2014

Marie Steffens explores how two opposites used in the same sentence utilize our thought processes to influence the way we conceptualize the world. Opposites linked together in one sentence can express, inter alia, the totality of a category (rich and poor means “all people”). By studying the mechanisms underlying the expression of a totality, we try to understand how opposites can manipulate us. 

Marie Steffens explore comment deux contraires utilisés dans la même phrase utilisent nos processus de pensée pour influencer notre manière de conceptualiser le monde. Des contraires reliés entre eux dans une phrase peuvent exprimer notamment la totalité d'une catégorie (Les riches et les pauvres signifie « tout le monde »). En étudiant les mécanismes sous-jacents à l'expression d'une totalité, nous essayons de comprendre comment les contraires peuvent nous manipuler.

Culture Of Fear

BY BERNHARD LENGER
@ VOL 2 ON MAR 28, 2017

Bernhard Lenger (OS) gebruikt design om ons te wijzen op gebreken in wetten, politiek en maatschappelijke kwesties. Tijdens PechaKucha Night Tilburg #2 vertelt hij ons onder andere meer over 'Culture of Fear' (onderdeel STRP Biënnale). Culture of Fear impliceert dat politici en media de angsten van mensen manipuleren voor eigen doeleinden. Culture of Fear is een interactieve installatie die reageert op angst, het experimenteert met mogelijke denkbeeldige bedreigingen en laat zien hoe politici en media onze gedachten beïnvloeden.

Keitaro Yonehara

Photographer Keitaro Yonehara presented a selection of his works at Pecha Kucha Night Tokyo Vol. 58.

You can view more of Yonehara's work at the artist's website.

The Truth of a Moment

“It’s not staged, there’s no post-production. It’s what you see. As some of our most visceral and memorable experiences in life are about moments … I'm all about capturing these moments without any manipulation.” Photographer Fumiaki Yamazaki discusses the art of his photographic work. In “The Truth of a Moment” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 117, he discusses the conceptual backdrop of his photography, which emphasises the capturing of movement, life, and the ethereal of a raw moment in time.
