|Andreas Schlegel, Random Noise Flow|
Young art talents from Singapore Lasalle College of Arts proved their creativity once again. This time group of students led by Andreas Schlegel, featured works, based on science studies and pure statistic data, at Coded Transformations exhibition, opened on the 10th of January at Institute of Contemporary Art Gallery.
Guests, school mates, friends and even professors came down for opening reception to see, how statistic data can be transformed into arts and displayed in paintings, sculpture and installations. Andreas Schlegel, who is coordinating Lasalle Media Lab and lectures Faculty of Media Arts featured 'Random Noise Flow' work, that is basically prints of random noises recorded by ultra-sensitive equipment - noise of earth, and sand dunes moves, random voices.
In students works physical data is transformed by digital processes and outcome will be presented in different physical formats. Almost all works are interactive, visitors can speak or just breeze next to the sensors and see immediately digital clouds moving at the display. Other devise transforms hands movements into sound. Different raw materials were analysed and transformed using equipment into sculptures. One of the students made research connected to environment issues such as temperature level rise in different parts of Singapore, finding relation between landscape altitude, amount of greenery around and temperature, humid level and her own body temperature and feeling. Results shown in diagrams look like true art pieces, at the same time attracting society attention to the temperature rising at the centers with high buildings and less oxygen reproducers.
It's not quite possible to describe how art objects were created or how do digital installations work. You need to see it, read physical laws descriptions, follow the process of devices creation, try by yourself and watch how it actually works, talk to artists and share your thoughts with other visitors. You are welcomed at the exhibition from 11th January to 3rd February. Venue @ Institute of Contemporary Arts Gallery #B1-04 at 1 McNally Street is opened 10am - 6pm, except 1.30 - 2.30pm (Closed on Mon and Public Holidays).
Moreover, there is '1st Prize' light installation at TriSpace (#B1-05) by Kray Chen, who used light and giant digits to present one of Singapore well-known 4D lottery, based on a series of 4-digit numbers picked randomly thrice a week for prizes based on individual bet values. Displaying the latest winning number onto wall-sized 7-segment digit display assembled from light bulbs, Kray 'investigates Singaporeans’ strive for betterment and unfolds the utopian story that dictates the Singaporean lifestyle'.
