Robert Seidel, Video Artist und Mann hinter 2minds, hat neues Videomaterial zu seinem Projekt Processes: Living Paintings online gestellt. Faszinierende Installation bei der die Fassade des Phyletischen Museums in Jena als Projektionsfläche genutzt wird.
"processes: living paintings" is a 35 by 16 meter full façade projection with a corresponding light choreography, ambient music and synced sound effects shown on the 2/2/2008 in Jena, Germany. It was especially created for the 100th anniversary of the Phyletic Museum founded by Ernst Haeckel as well as the event „Jena illuminated“ being part of the opening ceremony for “Science City 2008”.
The projection consists of five “living paintings” which turned the Phyletic Museum into an architectural canvas. These “tableaux vivants” refer to the accommodated phylogenetic collection which was given to the public by Ernst Haeckel in 1908. Additional inspiration comes from the nearby Institute of Systematic Zoology and Evolutionary Biology, where Seidel used to study and which, for instance, researches the locomotion of animals. All these impressions of color, movement and form are combined with his personal artistic research into intertwining primordial structures, whirring micro-surfaces, traces of smeared motion-fragments, nostalgic optical aberrations, pulsating mirage shadows as well as biographical reflections.
