Bernd & Hilla Becher | Water Tower [Dieulourd, Lorraine, France 1972]
Whiteboard Artworks by Gregory Euclide
High school teacher Gregory Euclide created these incredible artworks during his 25 minute lunch break. Unfortunately because they are drawn on classroom whiteboards, each piece has to be removed at the end of the day.
This is hard to watch:
Kubik is a new installation that just returned to Berlin after a 4-year absence. The concept, developed by Balestra Berlin in 2006 was re-installed to energize disused urban spaces around the world by creating a unique fusion between water tanks, light shows and electronic beats.
Stacked up tank-walls illuminated in different colors together create a stunning interactive piece of architecture. Having been installed in 22 cities around the world, the Kubik is now back in its hometown of Berlin. It seemed fitting that Balestra Berlin collaborated with the Ritter Butzke a respected club in the Berlin electronic music scene and a place where cutting edge artists are often shown. Kubik is situated in a courtyard between two spaces — walls of an old factory that reach up to 20 meters high. This presented a challenge, but the 100+ water tanks have been installed in such a way to create a labyrinth of glowing tank walls, some up to 6 tanks high.
THE LIMINAL POINTS PROJECT
Photographer Nick Rochowski
The project is in collaboration with music producer Deepsea and artist Greg Haynes
“One of my first memories of the wood was on a family walk.
At one point while playing with my sister I decided to run ahead.
I came into a clearing and then quickly slowed down and stopped as I approached an entrance.
Despite the daylight it was dark at the edge of the clearing where the path continued into the wood.
Fear gripped me for a moment with a vivid thought.
Then we all continued in .”
“The term liminality stems from Latin limen meaning boundary or threshold. Concepts of boundaries exist in all aspects of humanity and have been the study of many ethnologists, folklorists and philosophers. In particular, Plato considered the boundary between a reality and a heightened reality or altered state of mind.
My practice involves extensive observation and explorative research of a landscape, built environment or interior space. The work examines past experiences and memories in the context of a new, technologically developing and globally linked society and the psychological effects that permeate. The experience is solitary, raw and elemental and reaches deep into the psyche.
Penn Wood is a 500 acre area of woodland bordering the village where I spent most of my childhood. It is an ancient wood with mixtures of evergreen and deciduous trees, open planes and dense foliage. It also contains over a dozen trees that are uncommon in the county.” Read More →
