Media Art UP!

I’ve been organizing an event with Markus Renvall. It’s Media Art UP!

A new type of an exhibition and an event for new media art.

Here is the press release (PDF).

I coded the web page & made the graphics.

The venue of the event is the Cable Factory in Helsinki, Finland.

I made a few new pieces to exhibit there. The “Mood” was a very tough one  to conceive especially!

The disputing heads are screens, playing ID Software’s Doom game!

A brightly lit photo below. The exhibition lighting setup is more a favourable one.

I’m in Art Takes London.

Voting Is Good!

Sharing Is Caring!

I’ll be at Berlin during June 2nd to 5th with our installation FocusPocus-videoparadox, so feel free to grab my sleeve and share thoughts!

Peace.


A piece of stone

This was the first time I sculpted stone. I love when the shapes start to show me content. Then I just continue refining it.

Ponders

The piece of stone (Russian marble)  is the same, its just missing material in certain places. In a way, I did not give the shape to it. I merely removed shapes from it. Consequently, the art is in the shape removed, leaving the stone in place. Say, a brick has little value, until labor refines it and brings in to context (a building or a sculpture).

Bringing the content out of the vague formal dynamics of the shape is a very calming process. It finds the meaning of something formerly undefined, and (in a way) gives elements to allow free interpretation. I think that art is something everyone has the right to understand from their own point of view. I love, when a piece of art speaks for itself, without the necessity of someone else’s interpretation.

What kind of emotions and  thoughts does it awaken in you?

Sorry about the image quality.

This is an AD (Art Director) from hell. The money is there for size comparison, but in a way it serves the idea 😉

Yeah, I know. It’s not smooth and perfected, and our camera is outdated.

My wife doesn’t think it’s realistic. I think it’s the content, not the form. I mean, someone could have that kind of features and proportions, right?

Somehow this guy ended up looking  like a mix of John Lennon and Octave Parango (from 99 francs).

Anyway, I had to post something. I’m busy with a big project, and I can’t publish anything about it, yet!


Pencil Sketch

Zeus2

Something classical art this time. Pencil on paper. Scanned and level adjustment in Gimp.

I wanted to test how well I remember the external human anatomy, and ended up with my version of Zeus. He pulls the lightning from his hair. No reference or model of any kind was used.

As a self taught artist, I had to build a solid understanding of the laws of nature, to be able to create art in it’s various ways.

I have the deepest respect to Michelangelo‘s understanding of  muscular anatomy, mass and shape. He was very observant and talented man.


More Abstract Albert

Now this is the first of a kind for me. It was made digitally, with a Wacom Intuos Drawpad. It’s really important to me, and it works really well on a huge print, and when projected. None of the shapes are there by accident. Every shape has a connection, and a reason. A media installation as a never-ending dive in to the details of the image is also obtainable.

NameLess

Here’s a detail of his head.

Nimrod's face

He is hidden, but still, you can see him. He can only be seen from his actions.
