DCN Pick: ВОСПРЕЩЕНИЕ-ПРОСВЕЩЕНИЕ by Vladimir Abikh // Неотъемлемой частью стрит-арта является момент запрещенности. К одним и тем же работам зритель может относиться диаметрально противоположено в зависимости от контекста. Художественная уличная активность как правило ассоциируется с вандализмом, но через признание музейного сообщества или же ценник в аукционном доме произведение приобретает статус искусства. На примере того же Бэнкси мы видим, что первоначально нелегальные работы извлекаются с улицы и музефицируются. За их порчу даже предусмотрена уголовная ответственность. Возникает забавная ситуация, продукт нарушения общественного порядка теперь защищается законом. В работе «ВОСПРЕЩЕНИЕ-ПРОСВЕЩЕНИЕ» одни и те же вырезанные буквы существует в двух местах единовременно, они читаются как на улице, откуда их изъяли, так и на территории музея стрит-арта, куда они перенесены, но при этом образуют совершенно разные смыслы. Работа репрезентирует смену статуса нелегального стрит-арта при переходе в музейное пространство, побуждающему зрителя относиться к произведению как к своеобразному акту просвещения, который судя по всему и происходит через запрет, через своеобразную «прорезь» устоявшегося порядка. An integral part of street art is the moment of forbiddenness. The viewer can see the same works diametrically opposed depending on the context. Street art activity is usually associated with vandalism, but through the recognition of the museum community or the price in the auction house the work gets the status of art. Even on the example of Banksy, we see that initially illegal works are taken from the street and come to museums. For their damage there’s even a criminal liability. So isn’t it funny that the product of violation of public order is protected by law now. In the work of “ENLIGHTENMENT-PROHIBITION” the same cut letters exist in two places at a time, they are read both on the street, where they were taken, and on the territory of the museum of street art, where they are transferred, but they form completely different meanings. The work represents a change in the status of illegal street art when been taken to the museum space, encouraging the viewer to treat the work as a kind of an act of enlightenment. Which happens from all appearances through interdiction, through a kind of a “cut” of the established order.

This body of work can be can be described as modern deep electronic music. A box of sonic emotions which contains various compositions juggling between down-tempo and up-tempo beats gives a clear vision of multi-genre EP with the merging of two distinct artists styles. This is a mix of atmospheric organic and cold electronic sounds with elements of Dubstep, Garage, Drum & Bass, Breakbeat, and Techno. Moving from one track to another you can find yourself in the depths of the underground or on the peak of the mountain. This visual feeling inspired the title of the project “Serene Peaks”. This is an imaginary cold but beautiful place for a loner with a hope and belief in the better tomorrow. In addition to 22 minutes of four audio tracks, you can find a 2-minute original visual film (included in the album download as a bonus) produced and directed by Maks Histibe with additional footages from Rowan While.

DCN Pick: BBC Winter Olympics 2018 by Nexus Studios // A bold and exhilarating animated 2D film created by Nexus Studios’ duo Smith & Foulkes in collaboration with Y&R London is at the centre of the BBC’s ‘The Fearless are Here’ campaign that heralds the arrival of the 2018 Winter Olympics. Via the thrilling and abstract journey of a luger, skier, curler, snowboarder, ski jumper and ice skater, the film depicts the psychological and physical obstacles Winter Olympics athletes face in their quest to be the best in the world. From the beginning, the ambition was to focus on the feeling that fear and anxiety induce in top level athletes rather than simply represent it as a physical monster. The creative focus became how to dramatise the negative emotions that must be conquered in order to succeed. This drove the team towards a more shapeshifting, morphing animation style. Smith & Foulkes researched live action filming techniques for action sports in the quest to achieve an authentic sense of movement through a 3D space and a team of artists at Nexus Studios worked to create the entirely 2D spot which was drawn and animated in a virtual environment using emerging VR cinematography software. Working in this way and with a perceivable depth provided the ideal testing ground and enabled the team to experiment at an early stage and consider different camera angles, just as if you were shooting in live action and with the sensibility of having a handheld camera.

DCN Pick: I never promised you a garden by Mélanie Courtinat // « I never promised you a garden » is a digital installation using virtual reality. The public is invited to explore a chimeric hanging garden and to interact with it. The experience questions the passivity of some spectators when facing interactive artworks. One needs to engage with the garden to keep it alive and growing. If not, the plants start fading, inevitably leading to the end of the experience.

DCN Pick: When Objects Dream by ECAL // Do objects sometimes dream about themselves? What if we could enter their dreams? Virtual reality? Connected objects? On the occasion of the Milan International Furniture Fair 2016, from 12th to 17th April at the Spazio Orso 16, ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne presents a collection of interactive experiments developed by Bachelor Media and Interaction Design students. Ever since they appeared, we have been worshipping the objects around us while being extremely demanding of them. What if the roles were reversed for once? Instead of asking objects to make us dream, why don’t we consider their own dreams? Premonitory dreams that anticipate a possible future of objects? In this exhibition presented by the Bachelor Media & Interaction Design students of ECAL, a series of objects offers visitors a rather unsettling experience. In order to uncover its subtleties they will have to learn to adjust to the objects on display so as to perceive each piece’s personality. In a certain way, this project as a whole leads us to question the future of familiar objects. How does our relationship to them changes as they become capable of making a statement about their own existence, interact by using onboard sensors and grow increasingly connected to our communication networks? Do I see my toothbrush differently knowing that it records each movement in my mouth and therefore displays a form of consciousness? As part of the experiments developed for this exhibition, the students created two families of objects. The first integrates a virtual reality principle which allows you to literally look inside the objects, to immerse yourself for a time into a parallel reality which objects let you glimpse at. The second is made up of objects whose basic function is augmented or transformed through activity sensors. This is their way of making us reflect on the future of so-called smart or connected objects. The objects on display, whose function is but fiction, tell their own story, encouraging us to see and use them differently. In a playful manner, they lead us to rethink some of our distrust in the face of change and as regards, their future. Press preview Monday 11 April, 4 pm – 6 pm Cocktail Tuesday 12 April, 4.30 pm – 9 pm Opening hours Tuesday –  Sunday, 11 am – 8 pm Spazio Orso 16 Via dell’Orso 16, 20121 Milan www.orso16.com www.ecal.ch
