Nothing Matters

Nothing Matters: An Absolut Art Bar designed by FOS.

In the course of this year’s CHART ART FAIR, Norse Projects will be part of Nothing Matters, a site specific, artistic bar experience created by Danish artist FOS, Absolut, MDT and CHART.

FOS has the unique ability to make the complicated understandable while playing and challenging himself, the audience and the society as such.

Nothing Matters

“The idea of Nothing Matters is the material. The creation story of art is ambiguity, whereas everything else in our society is created unambiguously. Design needs to flat-pack, resist wear, address a function. Art needs to present something that hasn’t been seen. The material is what an artist executes in.”

Olafur Eliasson: ICE WATCH

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson and geologist Minik Rosing are using their latest installation “Ice Watch” to initiate an international dialogue about climate change. The two collected and transported ice from a fjord outside Nuuk, Greenland and assembled it in a clock-like formation on Copenhagen’s City Hall Square. One hundred tonnes of ice has been used to symbolise the amount of inland ice that melts every hundredth of a second, and serves as a physical wake-up call for onlookers.

The installation has been timed to coincide with the Fifth Assessment Report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. “The ice is melting. Sea levels are rising. Temperatures are rising. Climate change is a fact.”

CATEN by David Letellier

We discovered the beautiful world of Berlin-based audio-visual performer David Letellier, whose latest kinetic sound installation CATEN is now on display in the Chapelle du vieux St-Sauveur, a 12th century Gothic chapel in Caen, France.

Created by 300 thin wires CATEN uses gravity combined with two motors to create a floating audio-visual experience for its audience. The sculpture suspended from two ropes, each connected to slowly rotating devices at both ends comes alive while performing gentle, organic movements together with a real-time composition inspired by medieval solmisation prayers. Each time the devices make a full turn they send an impulse to a polyphonic synthesizer which translates the impulses to four harmonics of the same notes, creating the most amazing soundscapes in the chapel.

See the beautiful video of the sound sculpture below.
