:Carlie Trosclair, d next person on :d white blog for tonight. I have pretty interesting stuff to share, don’t know why I’ve become pretty lazy nowadays. probably because of d outdoor activities. this one reminds on this kind of activity also. open windows, frames that free d wind from you. Carlie Trosclair is an installation artist from New Orleans, Louisiana who presently works and resides in St. Louis, Missouri.
:strong emotions, right? powerful expression, abstract feelings, soft chaos. well, in most of his projects he can be defined as this.
A house constitutes a body of images that give mankind proofs or illusions of stability. We are constantly re-imagining its reality: to distinguish all these images would be to describe the soul of the house; it would mean developing a veritable psychology of the house.
-Gaston Bachelard, “The House: from Cellar to Garret”, from The Poetics of Space
Nam June Paik, TV Garden, 1974 (2000 version). Video installation with color television sets and live plants.
TV Garden, one of his seminal installations, illustrates Paik’s profound grasp of technology’s capacity for composition and the new aesthetic discourse that he helped to create. To enter the piece is to experience an uncanny fusion of the natural and the scientific, as hidden amid an undergrowth of live plants are video monitors of various sizes. All are playing the artist’s 1973 collaboration with John J. Godfrey, Global Groove, which montages performers from around the world into a gyrating visual mix, and the videotape’s sound track serves as musical and spoken counterpoint to the monitors’ flickers of light. TV Garden set a new standard for immersive, site-specific video installations.
<TV Garden>(1974/2008) is one of the most important works of Nam Jun Paik, creating life beats from primordial force of tropical forest in tune with rhythm of video fantasy. The <Global Groove> on TV monitors shows the power of music and dance with imaginative video image. Firstly conceived in his private exhibition of Bonino Gallery in New York in 1974, it made its appearance as a title of <TV Ocean> due to the lack of money to buy plants at that time. Later, its variations were made according to the environment of exhibition including Aberson Gallery in New York, Contemporary Museum in Chicago, Pompidou Center in Paris, Whitney Museum in New York, Metro Hall in Tokyo, Litan Museum etc.
<TV Garden> in NJP Art Center is surrounded by small corridors to look around with a short-ranged view, and it also has a characteristic to make the audience take an outlook of the entire forest from the upper side. Installed as part of Now Jump, the opening festival of NJP Art Center, it was built up by Young Cheol Lee, the artistic director of NJP Art Center and Sang Su Ahn, landscape architect, with the advice of Keigo Yamamoto, Japanese video artist, during a week starting from the 2nd of October in 2008.

:time for new post, though. .. and what I find interesting is this great idea, #project Josh Kolbo‘s large-scale, high-gloss c-prints merge photography and sculpture, as the distorted images are layered on top of each other to build narratives over space and time.
:u think is cool? :D
