Burning Life O9

October 22, 2009

I have some more glimpses of Burning Life 09 all of them refer to narrative by either representing it in an obvious manner or attempting to slide away from it.

Gulliver’s travel scene by Ub Yifu and  Copan Falta was certainly catching peoples eye.
The audio streaming from the first of Gulliver’s Travels is by Reverend Upshaw

Irregularity by Selavy Oh is for me, perhaps one of the most interesting builds at Burning life

‘Irregularity’ consist of 1872 identical poles arranged as a grid which  forms a hollow sphere. A the start of the week the structure is symmetric and regular, but changes as each visitor interacts with the structure. As visitors move around and collide with it poles fall. Although the structure self repairs the poles never take up the same position. This accumulative disarrangement of the structure seemed to be a trace of activity rather than an obvious telling of a story.

Art Evolution Cube is a project by Kicca Igaly and Nessuno Myoo. It caught my curiosity because it aims to represent a process without necessarily turning it into a narrative. Kicca Igaly and Nessuno Myoo are interested in the evolution of a work of art from design on paper to its many possible iterations. Art Evolution Cube attempts to capture this process.

Burning Life

October 21, 2009

With over 400 camps and art works to visit over 34 regions, this years Burning Life has kept me a little busy. It’s a huge non commercial arts event

In amongst the creative chaos I took screenshots of some of the pieces that caught my eye.

The Eridu Society Airship outpost is described and set in a narrative context  “Earlier this year an off-world Eridu society outpost had been constructed on Dallier’s Hope, a meteor hurtling through space. While several communications had been received when the station was first completed, we have not heard from the team since June and fear the worst. When sky permissions permit the Eridu society expedition team uses a telescope to search the skies for their fellow members …. ”

The Burning Woman by AuraKyo Insoo is a bit grim as it is “Dedicated to all Children and Women who where battered and murdered. But Never Silenced.”
