Motivation & Inspiration

Work Description 

Installation

Lockdown.

The world keeps turning.

We pause and slow down.

At least for an instant.

In the course of the current challenges in 2020, our perception changed. There has been silence around us. No cars, no aeroplane noise, no human voices. Empty streets. All the familiar urban sounds of our everyday lives fell quiet. Instead, our inner voices became loud. Our focus on things changed. Together with the new silence a "deceleration" occured. Headroom for conscious new perspectives widened. Nature seemed to change in a very short time. The sky lit up in an unexpected blue, the colours intensified, natural smells became stronger and more perceptible. In the silence, the voices of nature returned. Once again we realised that we are part of nature, a part of the bigger picture.

What do we want to maintain, preserve and hold on to for the future?

The awareness of and fascination with "deceleration". The sensitisation of our perception and ultimately the chance to understand that beauty and value often lie in pausing, looking closely and listening.

It is a question of perspective.

A conscious decision.

How do we want to live?

Work Description
 

People move around in crowded cities. Conditioned by hustle and bustle, loud noises and speed, "decelerated" visual worlds inspire to consciously pause and intensify one´s sensual perception in the midst of urban activity The viewer is surprised by different motifs and impressions and visually as well as acoustically detached from the current context. Both – one's own dynamics and the perception of one's individual surroundings – undergo a change and re-evaluation: contemplative, almost meditative moments arise that replace the dynamics of here and now with conscious inwardness. Depending on the viewer's position, the perception of the decelerated image changes. The image seen on the monitor against the city backdrop becomes a window into a different world through our previously captured imagery. From a distance, the image initially remains an image. If the individual position is changed and the viewer stays directly in front of the monitor, he or she "feels" like moving through a kind of window and immersively dives into the image. Viewers experience themselves as an integral part of the deceleration. Individually composed sound ambiances emotionalise the corresponding imagery. A process of merging with a different world …

Installation

The project could result in a worldwide, transnational installation of large-scale monitors in various metropolises worldwide. The decelerated imagery on the monitor serves as an antipole​ to the urban context.

The viewer is surprised by different motifs and impressions and visually as well as acoustically detached from the current context. Both – one's own dynamics and the perception of one's individual surroundings – undergo a change and re-evaluation.

 

In the future, the visual worlds we have initiated could form a globally networked artwork and generate an international visual language.

It's a matter of perspective. 

If you want it.

Brain sculpture

Brain sculpture - Daniel Rohr immersed himself into an exciting artistic adventure with a deeply human approach – a project where artist and artwork merge into one.

 

Material: 3D cnc machined styrofoam core

polyurethane coated surface approx. 3mm thick

surface - hard and durable
 

Color option 01 project1012 edition: lacquered pink semi matt polyurethane paint

Dimensions standard: length 81cm x width 59cm x height 50cm

Dimensions BIG: custom made sizes are also possible, one size option is length 320cm x width 232cm x height 200cm

Colander Table  limited edition

Due to the form of the bowl with the 909 holes, the table glass plate vanishes for the nonexcistence of an right angle. The project is an experiment, to delete space and material. This creates an illusion, which opens to the observer an other point of view with a different sense. All objects that are standing on the table glass plate seem to float.

 

Info production loop:

The table colander is produced in a cnc milling process. Starting with a piece of aluminium with the weight of 408 kg - 899 lb for the table plate and 1 massive round aluminium bar for the 4 legs. The complete time line for producing one table from the first milling to the final polishing took round 4 weeks.

 

The Colander Table is manufactured in a limited edition of 8 pieces + 2 prototypes + 2 artist’s proofs

Size: 160x95cm - 72cm high

Material: aluminium cnc milled and mirror polished by hand - table plate glass or acrylic glass
