Jonas Dahlberg

Through the discussions with Sarah Weistner on the MA iSD at Chelsea I was reminded of the work of Jonas Dahlberg which I first saw at the CTRL-SPACE exhibition at ZKM (link to the right) in Karlsruhe.

The work is a play between the real and the imaginary and uses film and photography to immerse the viewer into the imaginary and speculative/propositional world of the architectural model. See more of his intriguing work here


Eric Dyers Cinetropes

Eric Dyers Cinetropes mix the space of the physical machines used to generate the illusion of motion and the space of the images represented within them.
His site is here

The images of the objects themselves are below. You can read more about Dyer's work in Re-imagining Animation by Wells and Hardstaff (Ava Academic)

Ceal Floyer, Light Switch 1992

Ceal Floyer’s installations are often inconspicuous or unassuming but make sophisticated use of a number of strategies from such art historical precedents as the readymades of Duchamp and conceptual and minimalist art of the 1960s. Light Switch, one of Floyer’s early works, is a colour photographic slide image of a light switch, projected to scale on a wall at the height one would expect to find a switch in a domestic setting.

Her work orientates around encouraging the viewer to consider something beyond what is presented to them.
