Gallery Crawl: September 27, 2013 - 5:30pm-11pm (POST CRAWL PARTY on the third floor)
Hive is a 3D-animated audiovisual installation where gallery visitors confront a swirling
mass of amorphous figures, appearing as a collective of matter as opposed to individual
beings in deep space.
HIVE’s choreographed motion-, light- and sonic patterns create an immersive, highly
dynamic figurative landscape, a pulsing audiovisual matter, without a beginning or end
Moment by moment computer generated, HIVE takes on the notion of being alive and
presents an artificial organism in eternal motion and interplay.
The stereoscopic nature of the projection introduces a whimsical, ethereal quality,
rendering a delicate, yet forceful spatial expanse right in front of the audience.
The sound in HIVE is created by the events present – including swarm motion and
behavior as well as changes in light and color. All visual appearances render a sonic
expression. As the choreography of the work passes through different phases, so does
the sound change its character over time.
Chicago based Austrian artist Kurt Hentschläger creates audiovisual performances and
installations. He began to exhibit his work in 1983, creating surreal machine-objects, and
since has been working with time-based media, film, video, animation and sound.
This exhibit is free and open to the public Wednesday & Thursday 11am-6pm; Friday & Saturday 11am-8pm; Sunday 11am-5pm
