Kinetica comes into its own with illusory adventures Kat Austen New Scientist CultureLab editor March 1 2013

Quotes from the article:

Taking things a step further Trope Scope present One two three a sculpture-cum-experiment that comes out of the multidisciplinary Diasynchronoscope Project at Goldsmiths University of London. 

Designed by artists Carol MacGillivray and Bruno Mathez as part of the project the piece is used to investigate how our brains construct a continuous visual stream from discrete objects…

One two three… is a stunning piece of art in its own right. It combines audio-visual elements that nod to MacGillivray’s experience in animation with a sculptural element that brings the projections into the realm of the real.

Quotes from the article:

One Two Three is one of those things that needs to be experienced in situ. (…)  It has a virtual reality feel but actually comprises real solid objects lit in sequences and the effect is hypnotic.

WOLF OLLINS

Quotes from the article:

We like so many other visitors to Kinetica were so enthralled with their work that we invited them to Wolff Olins London to hear more.

As with much sensorial artwork especially one like Trope’s which is in a continual state of evolution it is nearly impossible to capture the essence of it through film or photography. If you have an opportunity we strongly recommend you to see the work in situ.

We did  a talk on the 3rd April 2013 Talk at Wolf Ollins (International brand consultants) London.

Its always a good idea to keep a careful eye out at Kinetica as theres every chance you May miss something. I only noticed this as I was just about to leave. Follow the arrows on the floor of the mezzanine over to the corner. Step into the blackness behind a dark curtain and be entertained and intrigued by MacGillivray and Mathez Gestalt Circle a kind of illusory zoetrope for the technological age.

ANIMATE PROJECTS OBSERVER

A fantastic work which explores early animation techniques. Gestalt Circle utilises processes to direct the audience’s attention to the action presented. In essence the work comprises of a series of objects arranged in a dark space which are then illuminated in sequence giving the impression of movement. Read the theory behind the piece.

THE LONDON WORD

One of the things I enjoy the most about art is the way it can make us question the reality of what we are seeing. This could be simply how the artist has put brush to canvas to capture a particular moment or feeling the baffling intricacy of their technique or even the mechanics behind their process and it’s asking questions like this that allow you to engage with the art…

… Gestalt Circle used sequential lighting to illuminate white cups in quick succession presenting the illusion that the cup was flying across the room. This visually captivating installation-cum-experiment demonstrated the trickery we fall victim to when watching film – a reminder of the practical science lying behind our art.
