Evolució by Onionlab / Mapping Festival 2013
From the mailbox, a projection-mapping project:Hello!
I am contacting you to present Onionlab’s most recent piece, EvolucióYou will also find some high-resolution pictures here:And here is a brief description of the project:EvolucióOnionlab presents Evolució, a piece that revolves around the graphic and sound abstraction of the concept it is named after: evolution. It is construed as transformation, construction and alteration of reality through time; evolution as a discontinuous creation process as well.Created with 3D projection mapping techniques, this time, Evolució was projected onto the façade of the Musées d’art et d’histoire de Genève, though the piece takes the evolution concept even further: It was conceived as an open transformation process so that it can also be adapted to different façades and projection surfaces, and so that Evolució can continue its transformation process.

For over two decades japanese artist akiko ikeuchi has been creating room-sized vortices of silk, Tying hundreds of small knots in coloured thread to form elaborate gallery installations. Beginning with intricate plans resembling architectural diagrams, ikeuchi first lays a foundation structure using cotton thread.next, a second layer using fine silk thread is slowly knotted into a mesh, a process that spans nearly a month for an installation such as the one depicted. the resulting artwork straddles a interesting balance, appearing both imposing in scale yet almost completely weightless.
Mechanical installation from 2009 is a physical 1-bit glitch display - video embedded below:
BIT.CODE plays with the re-encoding of information and the recognizability of signs. It works with the infinite possibilities for combination of a finite number of bits, the smallest units of information.
The bits appear as black and white elements on the individual segments of the string. Each string is coded with the same bit pattern, which is reminiscent of Morse code. If the strings are moved in parallel, words seemingly appear (for a certain period of time) from ‘out of nowhere’ and disappear again. The perceived information causes a short opportunity for pause, a moment of serenity, of clarity – before the incessant flow of constellations, motions and changes starts anew.
