Golan Levin and Katrin Grotepass
Curator Michele Thursz
Katrin Grotepass and Golan Levin reach to the opposite
ends of the spectrum to relate the same principles in the explorations
of Magnetism as a communicative medium.
My work is showing the mysterious interaction of + and - of magnetic energy.
This invisible energy is made visible though physical mediums using magnetic,
iron- filings, fluorescent light and paper.
The energy of the creation of the work is a swell, and the catalyst for
my ink, graphite drawings.
- ink is the free flowing energy following the gravity in its organic
- Graphite is compressed energy in its geometrical form seen in the rhythm
Both elements are set in a dialogue. The graphite element seems to create
a base for the ink element to fly.
"My work has focused on the design of real-time environments, which allow
people to explore abstract form, color and sound in ways that are direct,
engaging, and expressive. Such environments inevitably investigate an
interplay of natural and synthetic forces."
'Floo' disperses and deflects soft-edged tendrils in response to the interactant's
movements, according to the patterns of magnetic fields.
is a New Latin term for hairball. In this environment, ductile hairs drawn
by the user swirl around a shifting, imaginary drain. 'Snoog Series' is
a set of static/interactive computational forms intended as raw materials
for phonaesthetic inquiry.
