featured project: framework f5x5x5, kinetic light art installation

Theo Seemann hat mir gestern eine Mail mit Infos zu diesem netten Projekt geschickt. Er studiert Kommunikationsdesign in Stuttgart und ist momentan im Zuge seines Praxissemesters in Brüssel bei der Medienkunstgruppe LAb[au]. Dort haben sie gerade ein langjähriges Kunstwerkprojekt abgeschlossen, das kinetische digitale Kunst mit Architektur verbindet.

„The f5x5x5 sculpture is a kinetic and luminous framework conceived and realised by LAb[au]. In software development, a framework is a methodological tool based on re-usable chunks of code, code libraries or other software pieces to assist, to develop and to glue together the different components of a software project. In regards to the f5x5x5 installation the term 'framework' refers to the installation's constituting elements, a raster of fix and kinetic aluminium frames. The installation title indicates the resolution instructing the numbers of modules used such f5×5x1 equal one module up to f5x5x5 equal 5 modules. Further 'framework' refers to the multiple operating modes of the installation, from a low resolution display to a generative and interactive sculpture. Consequently the term 'framework' can be understood as a way to manage conceptually and technically the sculpture's sequential operating modes and the rules by which they switch from one mode to another.

The f5x5x5 installation is part of the '16n' project cycle confronting architectural concepts (congestion, flows...) with spatial sensing technologies (electromagnetism, infra-red ...) and its constructs (signal propagation, field theories...) ...through the means of programmed 'lumino-kinetic' devices."
