"Box" explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.
Alpha-ville has teamed up with one of the most distinguished cultural institutions in the UK to present the UK premiere of Ryoichi Kurokawa’s new audiovisual concert Syn_.
Abandoning humanism and aesthetics, Syn_ explores abstract and musical patterns. In this work, simultaneity and synaesthesia – the correspondence of sensations and perceptions, such as sounds and colors, play masterfully on harmony and dissonance creating a show that many artists and avant-garde filmmakers – from Paul Klee and Norman MacLaren to Vassily Kandinsky had dreamed during the twentieth century, long before the appearance and the democratisation of digital technologies. Event details: Date: Thursday 26th September 2013. Time: 19:00. Venue: NFT1, British Film Institute, Southbank Centre.

I’ve just came from Le Palais de Tokyo, this kind of structures were in my mind for long time and this guy made them spot on.
Baitogogo by Henrique Oliveira.
With Baitogogo, Henrique Oliveira plays with existing forms -such as pillars- that give structure to the space of Palais de Tokyo: he extends and multiplies them in order to give them an organic, plant-like dimension, as if the building had come to life. The central motif of this installation is evocative of a synapse: a link between standardized architecture and the plant kingdom that seems to have overrun it. Compelled by the image he finds before him, the viewer is plunged into a microscopic neuromuscular world, reminding a synapses ensemble.

Bad Behaviour Open Submission
'chArt' is an exhibition that aims to explore the relationship that music has with visual arts.
Music has the ability to move, perplex and even annoy and can often be used to enhance artworks. Although art and music have differing personalities, the relationship between the two is a fascinating concept to explore.
Artists are asked to submit work in response to a piece of music from any genre of popular music that inspires them to make work. The music should be the starting point for artists and be used as a platform to conceptualize images to help them to visualise and execute a piece of work in a style and medium of their choosing.
Application Deadline – Midnight, Sunday 14th July.

Fireflies on the Water
Yayoi Kusama’s depictions of seemingly endless space have been a central focus of her artistic career. Kusama’s Fireflies on the Water (2002)—with its carefully constructed environment of lights, mirrors, and water—is one of the outstanding examples of this kind of installation, which creates a space in which individual viewers are invited to transcend their sense of self.
