By: Amy Haddad A group show at LVL3 in Chicago brings together three artists that explore germination in multiple ways. Heidi Norton. “The Plight (feeding Systems).” Image courtesy of LVL3. Visitors attending the “Germination” exhibition at LVL3, a gallery in Chicago, should expect to be surprised by the connections the show offers. The title brings to mind seeds growing into plants. But the visitor cannot help thinking how the term germination has expanded after seeing an amalgama... [more]

Having read about the historical themes and ideas that curator Juan A. Gaitán chewed over while planning the 8th Berlin Biennale, I wondered if I was supposed to feel like some colonial explorer as I journeyed southwest towards Dahlem and into a Berlin kiez less travelled (by a peripheral fellow traveller of the Berlin art crowd, at least). Someone like Alexander von Humbolt, who undertook the first scientific exploration of South America and whose name is to appear on the controversial... [more]

Playing with Gray Matter   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
lotte geeven at P/////AKT September 21st, 2013 - October 20th, 2013
Posted 10/9/13

Conceived as half of a two-exhibition series titled A Matter of Sight and Light and Matter, Lotte Geeven's solo show at PAKT plays with the viewer’s perception, right off the bat. The most striking installation in the Zeeburg gallery is a series of stripes, ranging from black to white, which turn the banal chromatic shift of the venue's floor that occurs over the course of the day into something visible and discrete. Another work, this one sound-based, plays noises recorded by the artist dur... [more]

Thomas Feuerstein at 401contemporary April 26th, 2013 - June 15th, 2013
Posted 5/16/13

Welcome to CANDYLAB. Walk amongst the sculpted molecular derivatives of glucose and color, and find and lose yourself in the plethora of sugared forms. Having opened on Berlin Gallery Weekend, Thomas Feuerstein’s solo show conflates the unlikely bedfellows of bound literature and boundless glucose. Entering into the gallery space, the viewer is treated to a mock construction of a Viennese apartment, a period setting punctuated with outlandish scientific contraptions and candy-coated canvases. ...

Astronaut Performs David Bowies's Space Oddity While Orbiting the Earth  
5/13/13 Posted 5/13/13

Tonight, a stunning cover of David Bowie's Haunting song Space Oddity was released from space by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station. The imagery is stunning, reminiscent of the film Moon directed by David Bowie's son Duncan Jones. Sometimes life really does imitate art, even while orbiting earth in a tin capsule in space.    Find out more: Twitter Facebook Google+  With thanks to Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran, Andrew Tidby and Evan Hadfield [more]

Observer Effect   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

In science, the “observer effect” refers to the phenomenon that the act of observation itself changes the subject of observation. Quantum mechanics goes a step further and takes for granted that a system cannot be observed without also being changed. The solution is to consider the observer as part and parcel of the system. Observer Effect, curated by artist Carrie Gundersdorf and Gallery 400 director Lorelei Stewart, tests the hypothesis that artistic practices are analogous to scientific processes in the... [more]

The Weather Project 2011-2012  
7/31/12 Posted 7/31/12

  “The Weather Project…is a perfect vehicle for me. It enables me to explore aspects of art, nature, and science and to direct my attention to the present moment in order to deepen my perception and my powers of observation."  I am a painter. I paint sky. I wonder at its beauty and am awed by its complexity. Observed changes in weather fronts, cloud formations, and shifts in light and color inform my work. Atmospheric conditions constantly change; countless, precise, invisible adjustments are ce... [more]

Originally posted at It Cannot Be Trivial 07/30/2010 "Only two electrons can occupy an orbital." Sounds like advice a marriage counselor might give to a couple after having finished reading a biography of physicist Niels Bohr. How about if the counselor continued to say, "It is impossible to simultaneously, with arbitrary precision, specify the position and momentum of a particle." Wait you lost us. Are you saying that we need to focus on the bigger picture of our relationship and not the nitpick the details? "Y... [more]

A Refreshing Scientific Approach   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 1/5/09

I am mildly envious of the science world. I am fascinated that, in their realm, absolute truths exist; like gravity and chemicals. I am always amazed and bewildered at their (whoever 'they' might be) confusion over the subjective nature of art. Therefore, when I stumbled over these photographs on the NewScientist website the other day, I was incredibly pleased that the two had fused and that the science world was celebrating things on aesthetic quality alone. Perhaps this favour should be retune... [more]

Katherine Dube: Apartment Therapy LA Local Spotlight  
7/30/08 Posted 2/4/09   Ever wonder what to do with a blank wall? Artwork, shelf, nothing? Well, we've figured out what we want: one of these scultpures from Katherine Dube. We met Katherine at last week's designer meet up and were intrigued by the vases and vessels she showed us pictures of. A mix of ceramic and gold these are actual cups, that we suppose you could drink out of, but we like them for display. When we got home and checked out her site we were... [more]
