Augenzucker: Optics – Art film by Maxim Zhestkov

Neues und wieder saugutes Video CGI-Magiers Maxim Zhestkov.

Optics is an experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov exploring the behaviour of artificial light and colour in digital environments. Blending architectural gallery space with computer-generated digital glass sculptures, we encounter animated refractions, chromatic aberrations, colourful reflection and other conditions which are impossible in reality. A series of tests and explorations guides us through different optical conditions of the bright and colourful digital universe.

Schmetterling unter Rasterelektronenmikroskop

Teile eines Schmetterlings in ganz, ganz nahe. Hier die Fotos dazu.

„In the first chapter of Microworld Unseen, our main character is the pale grass blue (Pseudozizeeria maha) which is a common butterfly found in Asia. It is small and has a quite ordinary look. As a result, you probably have seen them flying around near wild flowers before, but very likely, you have paid little attention to them. Their ordinary look is the reason why we decided to take another good look at them with a SEM. One hidden feature revealed: the body of this little creature was covered with different kinds of scales everywhere you look.“

Die Unterschiede menschlicher Tränen unter dem Mikroskop

Die Fotografin Rose-Lynn Fisher hat schon vor Jahren menschliche, getrocknete Tränen unter dem Mikroskop fotografiert, die aus ganz unterschiedlichen Gründe geweint wurden. Und diese unterscheiden deutlich in ihren Strukturen. Der Artikel dazu ist staubalt, aber ich habe ihn gerade zum ersten Mal gelesen.

When she caught one of her own tears on a slide, dried it, and then peered at it through a standard light microscope, “It was really interesting. It looked like an aerial view, almost as if I was looking down at a landscape from a plane,” she says. “Eventually, I started wondering—would a tear of grief look any different than a tear of joy? And how would they compare to, say, an onion tear?”

Buntes Gewebe in alter Ruine mit Blick aufs Meer

Das Künstlerduo Quintessenz hat mit Kagkatikas Secret eine in 120 Farben leuchtende Installation aus Gewebe in eine 400 Jahre alte griechische Ruine gehängt – und das sieht ziemlich geil aus. Auch ohne den Meerblick, aber den gibt es als Bonus.

The installation is located on the island of Paxos in the Adriatic Sea. This work unfolds in a 400-year-old ruin in the village of Kagatika to offer an aesthetic and unique contrast between the old and the new, waiting for the public to contemplate.
The mesh material is colourized with spray paint in 120 different colour shades, and each layer is getting more prominent when you walk to the window from where you can see the wideness of the view. For the ones who will go there, the installation is a part of the Paxos Contemporary Art Project and will run until September 9th.
