DRIESSENS & VERSTAPPEN [NL]

Breed / E-volved Cultures (2001 – 2011) Breed  Breed is a computer program that uses artificial evolution to grow very detailed sculptures. The purpose of each growth is to generate by cell division from a single cell a detailed form that can be materialised. On the basis of selection and mutation a code is gradually developed that best fulfils this “fitness” criterion and thus yields a workable form. The designs were initially made in plywood. Currently the objects can be made in nylon and instainless steel…

Guto Nóbrega / Breathing

 Breathing (2009) Breathing is a small step towards new art forms in which subtle processes of organic and non-organic life may reveal invisible patterns that interconnect us. Breathing is a work of art based on a hybrid creature made of a living organism and an artificial system. The creature responds to its environment through movement, light and the noise of its mechanical parts. Breathing is the best way to interact with the creature. This work is the result of an investigation of plants as sensitive…

ZIMOUN [CH]

Zimoun / 25 Woodworms

 Woodworms, wood, microphones, sound system (2007 – 2012) ”Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of curiously collected material, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life.
