‘Eternity’ is a wall mounted sculpture made by American artists Alicia Eggert & Mike Fleming, consisting of 30 electric clocks rear-mounted to a large sheet of white acrylic. During installation, the black hour and minute hands of the clocks are aligned to spell the word ‘eternity’, and the clocks are plugged in to a series of power strips on the floor. The hands begin to move as soon as the switch on the last power strip is flipped, and the word almost immediately becomes a jumble of moving black lines.

Artist Kent Rogowski’s Everything I Wish I Could Be is an exploration of language, emotions and the desire to change and improve. Self help books run the gamet, from relationships to death and every topic in between. Rogowski’s photographs these tomes arranged by theme, creating an image of emotions and lives lived through title pages and spines.

In the artist’s own words, “I had been thinking about how people deal with moments of pain and change in their lives and knew that I wanted to explore this in my work.  I started collecting self help books and realized that there was literally a book for every moment in life: from relationship advice to dealing with a midlife crisis. I liked the idea that I could create images that would represent individual moments in life using the books that were written to soothe and help with those moments.”

X (horizontal), Y (vertical), Z (depth), T (time). Four letters to describe the motion of a point in the space, and think about an imaginary environment. Mathematical paradoxes, mesmerizing typographies and moving landscapes, all this at this exhibition called “XYZT, Les paysages abstraits” (XYZT The abstract landscapes). Surveying of the digital space, finger algorithms, fields of light… a lot of imaginary territories to explore. A coincidence between geometric and organic, between real and virtual. This is an awesome installation and interactive project created byAdrien M / Claire B and Martin Gautron.

chinese contemporary artist tsang kin-wah is working on an ongoing project called ‘the seven seals’. the series of seven digital video installations uses texts and computer technology to project tsang’s thoughts on various issues of the day. 

(…) 

as with the previous presentations, animated phrases and short sentences float and move around the gallery walls, sometimes whispering things to the viewer, and other times appearing like an admonition revealing the nature of human beings and the changes in our emotions.

 RISE AND SIGH - Martina Carpelan (2007)
Rise and Sigh is a collection of revealing bed linen that plays with incidents often taking place in hotels.
Different sleeping positions give different imprints on the sleepers’ body as the messages have been embroidered as a raised reverse image so they will appear properly when embossing your skin.
