The dome is an architectural feature that is common to a wide variety of social spaces. Its strength derives from the natural forces of gravity and tension, with each tier held in place by force exerted from above while supported by the one below.
In Babel, the artist stacks the different rings of these domes like children’s toys, aspiring to build a towering edifice, one atop the other. The domes, however, spin in consecutive circles, and each level erodes and supplants the next in a futile architectural battle royale spanning centuries, geography and ideologies. As the Tower of Babel presents an allegorical origin of cultural difference, Babel suggests that an ideal monument is one that brings together all ideals—faith, pleasure, beauty, industry—that the balance and tension of these paradigmatic forces allows them to coexist while supporting one another naturally, like tiers of stones stacked to form a domed ceiling.

The last futuristic exhibition of paintings 0.10 “Zero-ten” was an art exhibition which took place in Petrograd within the period between December 19, 1915 and January 17, 1916. The exhibition featured 36 works by Kazimir Malevich and his associates. Suprematism was presented as a new direction. The exhibition The Last Futuristic was named due to the organizers’ idea to complete the futuristic period in Russian painting and to mark the beginning of Suprematism. In the red corner of the room, traditional for the icon in an Orthodox house, was placed the Black Square.
This short-length film is the architectural and visual experiment in the creation of the spatial compositions based on the suprematic paintings from the exhibition 0,10.

Skylark

Jérémy Oury

— Spanish premiere —

Fulldome | Sound | Color | 4’ 50’’ | 2018

[ARTWORK] 

Skylark is an immersive audiovisual experience based on geometric pattern and moiré effect.
In a subtle visual game of pure geometry, psychedelia, minimalism and optical art, a narrative about confinement is developed, positioning the viewer in the point of view of a lark. The figure of a butterfly that looks for its way in a space of minimalist urbanization, from the sky the cities seem figures, growing constantly under the effect of new constructions. In turn, for the walker his visual field is reduced as the buildings reach vertiginous heights. The urban world to which we are accustomed separates us from our wild identity close to nature.
