Brussels - Mediaruimte - MR.xpo 25 - Frederik De Wilde05/01/2010
January 15 - January 25, 2010
Opening: January 15, 6 pm + concert by Frederik De Wilde 9 pm.
Mediaruimte presents the premier of Frederik De Wilde's 'Hostage.pt-1', alongside 'The Numerical Recipe Series [NRS]', exploring the intangible, inaudible and invisible.
For the first time an artwork made of the darkest material in the world will be exhibited for a large audience. The painting is made of carbon nanotubes that reflects only 0.045% of the light. Frederik De Wilde is currently collaborating with the Rice University [USA] to develop the largest, and even darker paintings and sculptures.
The Numerical Recipe Series [NRS] consists of computer generated images (High Resolution Digital Prints) created in a programming environment called MaxMsp/Jitter. The sources of the images are currently sound and electromagnetic radiation, or simply coded images using complex algorithms. Future series will include meteorological data, seismic data, etc. The results range from graphical towards painterly abstractions. All images could be interpreted as digital landscapes, electronic shadows and representations of our habitat, our lives.
Frederik De Wilde works on the interstice of the arts, science and technology.
