SPELLBOUND

 

Spellbound

DIAS has placed six satellites in the landscape south west of Copenhagen. In each satellite you can experience digital art - each piece exploring how we get spellbound by digital technologies. The art works are bound together by a fairytale, a cycling route and a puzzle game, where you can collect your own art work!

 

The entrance is  free and can be seen around the clock.

Space

Oskar Jakobsen (dk)

Day-to-night installation

All the art satellites are dressed in an external digital work created by the artist Oskar Jacobsen. The work consists of light and is inspired by the RGB color scale used to define colors on digital displays such as a computer or smart-phone. On the RGB scale, you work with 6 colors: R (red) G (green) B (blue) there are the three 'outer columns'. 
When these colors overlap, they create the colors of Yellow, Magentaand Turquoise. During the day, an RGB cube will be visible up on the container side and at night light will reflect the cube outline into the surrounding landscape.

Hyperchromalux

Fred Sapey-Triomphe (fr), music by Etienne Brunet & electronics by Yann Guidon

Kinetic light installation

 

The light has always mesmerized the human being, and since the 19th century we have been able to create artificialelectric light. The art work Hyperchromalux is a light installation with a rotating propeller that makes a hologram-likefigure manifest itself in space. The picture appears to us as a three-dimensional figure, formed by directional light. 
In fact, the picture does not exist at all, but plays with the link between eye and brain. The art work points to our 
contemporary society where the real and virtual worlds melts together

The Nereids

Oskar Jakobsen (dk)

Interactive light installation

 

The Internet is a constant part of our everyday lives, and much of our daily communication takes place online - but how much do we really know about the mesmerizing internet? Not many of us consider that major parts of the internet actually is placed in the depths of the sea. A huge part of the world's internet communication takes place though large cables among deep sea creatures. In the work "Without Title" the artist directs our attention to the unknown sea - indeed, we know more about the outer space than of the sea. Next to the electric Internet cables lives amazing deep sea animals that glow in the dark due to natural enzymes. The luminous animals have inspired the artist’s decoration of the room: LED lights that react to your presence occurring almost as a digital manifestation of the internet's glowing cohabitants in the depths of the sea.

LOL 2.0

Andrea Brasch & Patrick Jarnfeldt (dk)

interactive video installation, 2017

 

Your pocket contains the entire world - our smartphones have made it possible to be online at all times and has provided us with amazing opportunities to communicate across great distances and create new ties and friendships. 
Though, sometimes our virtual life can mesmerize our mind and get in the way of reality. In the art work LOL the 
artists investigate the relationship between technology and human social relations. On the screens you meet a 
number of faces and as you approach them, you will discover how they begin to smile and laugh in your presence. 
The work shows how modern technology and our small pocket-machines can create new fertile relationships, but 
reminds us at the same time to be present in the reality – to take your eyes off the screen and meet your neighbor with a smile.

Magic mirror

Wayne Siegel (dk/us)

interactive  sound installation

Mirrors have fascinated man through history - the mirror shows reality, but can also distort it and mesmerize us in vain. In the artwork, the classic features of the mirror have become digital and technological: by means of a camera and a screen, the mirror reproduces our body - as a technological mirror cabinet. At the same time, the mirror has 
an active sound feature that reacts directly to your presence in the room - your movements make the adventurous wizard mirror sing and scream. The artist uses contemporary technology to visualize the tension between physical reality and digital reflection in our current society where modern technologies make it possible to manipulate the 
visual truth.

Drowning / Burning

Wayne Siegel (dk/us)

interactive sound installation

 

Enter the field - Your movements are transformed into sound!
The interactive sound installation Drowning / Burning responds to your movements. When you step onto the marked area on the floor your movements will awake the art work as your body is transformed into a living instrument 
that create synthetic sounds inspired by water and fire. The more you move the more sound you create. The digital technology extends your body and we experience how our modern machines can enhance our natural capabilities 
and even give us features that otherwise belongs to the imagination.

Mycelium

Andrea Brasch & Patrick Jarnfelt (dk)

interactive installation

 

Connect the handles by holding them and experience how you hereby create sound and images in the room. At the same time, you will find that the distance between some handles is so great that you cannot connect them alone. 
Though, if you work together with someone else you will be able to form new combinations in the room and make 
the sound and image evolve. In this art work the artists examine the role of technology in social situations and show us how we are enhanced by the community and how modern technology gives us completely new opportunities to combine our forces, abilities and knowledge.
