daniel palacios :: waves

WAVES utilizes a basic construction of a long piece of elastic string and two motors to visualize the presence of people close to the installation. The string between the two motorized chambers reacts to the people presence and movements, it twirls to produce a sine-wave simulation that eloquently resembles both the digitization of real-time sound waves and patterns of flow and connectivity found in natural systems.

The simple act of making the ‘invisible’ visible can produce profound effects in both our understanding of the world around us and the close relationship we have to the natural and built environment that we occupy daily. Although the project may seem like a simple visualization of intangible forms, it nevertheless connects to our visceral side by creating unique sound output and striking visual stimuli that engage with persistence of vision and our connection to the spaces we occupy and their sonic and electromagnetic inhabitants.

gerhard richter :: overpainted photographs




Gerhard Richter has often experimented between the realms of photography and painting, creating a trademark style which blends both media. In his Overpainted Photographs series Richter uses a tension between the applied texture of oil paint and seemingly traditional tourist photos and creates dynamic images with a unique character. A short documentary about this series was made in 2008, when it was for the first time ever exhibited in the Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen (Germany): ‘Gerhard Richter’s Overpainted photographs series
