‘Capital unemployed’ (2011) by Martin Höfer

The work ‘Capital unemployed’ is a series of excerpts taken from work descriptions of artworks in the collection of the National Gallery of Art in Vilnius. The descriptions, shown on an LED-screen fixed to the outside wall of the museum, belong to artworks which are not publicly accessible because they are kept in the museum’s repository.


‘World Community Grid Water Features’ by AIDS-3D

A group of spectacular cast-fiberglass fountains stand together on an elevated server-room floor. A Fit PC 2 (the smallest PC currently available, 96% more energy efficient than a standard desktop) is installed in each water feature. Whenever the fountains are plugged in, the Linux PC’s will automatically boot up and run World Community Grid software, a distributed computing project which uses a massive network of PC’s around the world to model solutions for various humanitarian problems, such as: “Clean Energy Project”, “Influenza Antiviral Drug Search”, “ Fight Aids@home” and “Nutritious Rice for the World”. The delightful splashing of the water and twinkle of the energy-efficient LED’s act as relaxing and meditative status-light for the computers, tirelessly laboring within. Although there is no screen visible in the installation, the computation progress can be remotely monitored through a dedicated website.

Last friday was the presentation of the work ‘Impuls’ by Thomas Bakker.

‘Impuls’ (2010) was made for the CKE Eindhoven (NL), a center for the arts.
A series of LED-screens on the outside of the building project visual noise. The screens are connected through LED lines, showing the flow of energy. The intensity of the noise corresponds with the activity inside the building and changes accordingly during the day.
The video was shot during the opening…
