mini exhibition

Through another artist i cam across a lovely exhibition concept: Probe.
Probe is a small exhibition space: 1,10m high and only 6m2.
Because of it small size it is perfect for artists to experiment and work on scale and do things that are impossible in normal sized exhibition spaces.
The spaces is flexible: only the outside walls and doors are permanent.

Another special element about the exhibition space is that you cannot visit the exhibition in real life.
You can only visit the space on-line. This makes the space even more suitable for experiments on what an exhibition can be. The registration of the exhibition is the exhibition.
On the website of Probe you can also read how this exbhibition was different for the artists and why. Which I think is a nice addition to the common text only about the exhibition itself.

Probe runs exhibitions since 2008 and is still going.
This project is initiated by Suze May Sho, an collaboration of 3 different designers/artists.
More information about Probe here.

He transported the everyday life – the changing of the light during the day – into the white cube.

The Forms of Colour: The Interaction of Visual Elements

In his book, The forms of colour, Karl Gerstner examines the interactions of colour and form. The book begins with an analysis of existing graphical colour spaces and the advantages, as Gerstner sees them, of the ‘uniform colour space’ (UCS) developed by Günter Wyszecki. He then goes on to examine form systems, i.e., developments in geometry since Euclid, including perspective, topologies and fractals.

First humans on the Moon

In July 2009, we humans celebrated the Apollo 40th Anniversary. Fourty years ago the first humans landed on the Moon, the closest celestial object to the Earth. This succesful lunar landing continued until 1972. Apollo 17 marked the last moonwalk and the last manned mission beyond low Earth orbit. NASA has made an interactive application on the first moon landing. You can explore the moon from different locations just like Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin did.
