Charlotte Becket’s kinetic sculptures move slowly - sometimes imperceptibly. Their looping, rhythmic motion transforms the sculptures from motorized machines to figural abstractions or landscapes.
Her work ”Inkblot 5” consists of a wall-mounted geometric form with black mirrored surfaces, the top of each mass having been sheared, producing a shelf like form that strictly delineates between above and below. Underneath the plateau, crystalline abstractions accumulate to create an imposing Rorschach image. The rigid symmetrical landscape is punctuated with bulging rifts that slowly swell, either in a moment of expansion or deflation. As the forms slowly shift and redirect light they become hallucinogenic and unstable.
Andreas Nicolas Fischer’s geographic mapping sculptures are assemblages of agency, reacting to the energies of the conglomerates of vibrant matter from which the landscapes being mapped are formed.
He shows three works based on the same generative system. The software "swarm" running in real time is a constantly changing abstract composition, a uniformly moving collection of particles moving over a surface that leaves behind traces that overlap to create an abstract composition. This results in unique Images, whose development is unpredictable.
