Image Fulgurator – Julius von Bismarck

June 8th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

his website but in the moment it is under construction, but be sure to check it some time. He is a crazy creative head, who has to offer a lot more outstanding interactive art. He his a revoltionary urban artist, using modern technical knowledge to perform his ideas in the public.

“The Image Fulgurator is a device for physically manipulating photographs. It intervenes when a photo is being taken, without the photographer being able to detect anything. The manipulation is only visible on the photo afterwards.
In principle, the Fulgurator can be used anywhere where there is another camera nearby that is being used with a flash. It operates via a kind of reactive flash projection that enables an image to be projected on an object exactly at the moment when someone else is photographing it. The intervention is unobtrusive because it takes only a few milliseconds. Every photo another photographer takes of an object at which the Fulgurator is also aimed is affected by the manipulation. Hence visual information can be smuggled unnoticed into the images of others.”

Myeongbeom Kim – Surreal Appearances

March 28th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

I love this stuff by Myeongbeom Kim!

Educated in South Korea and the United States, Myeongbeom Kim produces otherworldly installations and sculpture works that juxtapose man-made elements with nature to create surreal dream spaces. Utilising suspension as a common motif, his works are constantly poised in a state of ambiguous wonderment. Within his installations, living things are held inside the fragile confines of light bulbs and helium balloons replace tree foliage, literally uplifting the tree and its roots.
Although this breaking down of the boundaries between artificiality and nature would generally engender a sense of unease, conveying the decline of natural phenomenon at the hands of manufactured goods, from Kim’s artistic perspective there is a rather a peaceful coexistence of these two binary opposites. It is a beautiful thing to behold.

Weapon of Choice

February 25th, 2011 // 1 Comment // Posted by Andrea

performed by Barbara Lüneburg, composed by Alexander Schubert

I love this combination of a classical instrument performing experimental and challenging sound in fusion with a visual projection. The music is measured with sensors, so that the the projection is following the pattern of the music. Great Live Performance. A mixture between an arty composing and modern electronica style.

In this relation i want to introduce you to sinebag another project of Alexander Schubert, more club like.
It is hard to describe the music, very thoughtful, influenced by classical composing and inspired by electronic music. Produced with live electronics, modular synthesizers and music software.

Shepard Fairey – Obey to the better

February 14th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

“Introducing the American artist Shepard Fairey is a bit like explaining whose portrait he famously altered for the “Hope” campaign that was widely used by Barack Obama’s supporters in 2008. Since the mid 1980s he has created outstanding (then: street) art that is strong, iconic and expressive. Shepard Fairey is also a thoughtful, committed, and outspoken activist who revives the artistic virtues of standing up for the freedom of speech and fighting for rational and non-corporate ways of dealing with the issue of copyright. Obey the interview we did with him in Los Angeles in late 2010!” (

Daito Manabe came to Berlin to perform with his face visualizer i posted about before. Unluckily i missed the performance and i´m glad i found the video of his performance over at todayandtomorrow.

“The Face Visualizer is a tool which lets people’s faces move artificially in sync with music through electroshocks produced with the Max/MSP programming platform.”

Simply amazing work.

Illustration by Simon Prades

Simón Prades is studying graphic design at the university of applied sciences in Trier. I really like his illustrations and drawings. A call to awareness of what is happening in the world is visible throughout his work. And we all need some more of that..

See more on his website or his blog. (The top drawing is a large-format related to Mexico).

and now the party for the event – CTM 2011

December 27th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

A must do for sure as well !!!

club transmediale

The 12th edition of Berlin’s unique and radically open-minded music and art festival, CTM (club transmediale), takes place from February 1 to 6, 2011. The festival, repeatedly designated as “Germany’s prime meeting point for electronic and experimental music” and as “Berlin’s best pop festival”, puts down roots at new venues in Berlin Kreuzberg, namely the HAU theatre and a cluster of spaces around the “Kotti” square – Festsaal Kreuzberg, West Germany, Monarch, Kotti-Shop and Paloma Bar – where a Berlin stronghold for daring, independent music and art has developed. High profile club nights at Maria am Ostbahnhof and Berghain are planned too, as well as a concert series reviving chamber music at the .HBC and an exhibition at the Kunstquartier Bethanien.
