 DOMAIN GALLERY: Ben Dierckx, Blind Spot

Blind Spot, a solo exhibition by belgium artist Ben Dierckx curated by Manuel Fernández.

Ben Dierckx employs sculptural objects and electronic media to refer to the awareness of one's own perception. What is our relation with reality seems to be the perfectly wrong question; we are reality.

Many of his works interact in a negative way with the audience. A plant will run away from you, a classic roman miniature bust does not want to look at you, the color of a flower will turn into its inversion by the volume of your comments, ect.

Blind Spot is an interactive installation with a plastic bamboo plant and projections. A wireless camera hidden in the foliage of the plant films the exhibition space through the leaves. When a spectator comes closer the plant, it detects his presence and moves in the opposite direction. The projections on the walls reflect the repositioning of the plant and emphasizes the person-space relation.

"Blind Spot" forms part of a series called "Eyestroll" that combines physical objects with electronic media, where in the central idea is an awareness of one's own perception.

BUBBLEBYTE: Yuri Pattison, The Making of 

 

The Making of, a solo exhibition of works by London based artist Yuri Pattison.

Pattison’s practice reflects on the impact of digital media on our understanding of reality, highlighting inconsistencies in the system of representation. Mastering a huge variety of media, his work often uses different devices to explore the strengths and limits of digital communication.

For the show, The Making of, the first solo show of the artist on bubblebyte.org, Pattison reflects on how the internet influences ideas of space, time and memory, flattening their defining attributes whilst also distorting their essence.

polymer placeholder pin drop is a live still life, showing a composition of assembled objects on a fictional landscape. The shifting image will be in constant transformation, offering a slightly different version of the assemblage on every view, unique but also universal. Each element in the image, being virtual or physical, is filtered through personal memories to become something archetypal activating ideas connected with places and their vision through the web.
The work The Making of is a live Google Drive Doc in constant flux that will evolve during the course of the show. The classical format of the .doc, becomes a way to explore ideas of collective ownership of rights, freedom of visual expression and private/public format, whilst highlighting issues of economic and political control of images and ideas. At the end of the show, the google drive doc will be converted to PDF and made available for print on demand.
 
cmoscosmos is a layered video and image piece playing with ideas of digital representation, collaging urban realities and architecture with personal and found images until the point of abstraction. As a fluid beautiful scenario, the work has the ability of eluding space and time, suggesting visual clues to reveal leaks in the way places are portrayed on the internet.
