PCA Faculty Solimán López Exhibits at the Fundación Caja de Burgos

MA/MFA Transdisciplinary New Media faculty Solimán López exhibits at the Fundación Caja de Burgos in Spain from Friday, June 15, 2018 to Sunday, September 23, 2018.

The exhibition ‘Key Axis’ is conceived like a tour with a market beginning and a diffuse ending. The visitor can enjoy the first one piece, named ‘Syngamy’, where a custom software moves 4 pan tilt motors looking for a rotation data correspondence. When this event happens, the system creates a digital virtual body and display it in a led monitor.
Once the virtual body is already created we can now visit the artwork named ‘Pilgrim’, a video installation with 36 screens that represent the bone data of a virtual body in a range between 1 month and 90 years. Each screen displays the information of one bone.
The body, already analyzed, now is part of the digital environment, that links with the next artwork ‘Limbology’. A light sculpture that represents the data path of a beacon with a GPS tracker, launched to the stratosphere. That information, translated into digital, is the basis for a hanging ray of light made with a led neon.
The information becomes data and the system now can create information by itself. In this case, ‘D00M’, the fourth artwork in the exhibition, is an autogenerative video installation that is blocking latitude and longitude positions randomly each time the spectator is in front of the interface, displaying this information in a black hole in movement.
