Samsara, an audiovisual experience

Samsara, une expérience audiovisuelle unique

You may have notice that the blog's activity has slowed these last weeks and I'm sorry about it, but the launch of my communication studio takes me a lot of time and energy. So I'll try to take advantage of the calm of August to share with you some of my recent discoveries.
It's not already a hot news here in France, but I think that a really great documentary film is about to be launched at the end of the month trough the world. This film, called Samsara, directed by Ron Fricke and produced by Mark Magidson, is the result of 5 years of work through 25 countries. An interactive map, on the film website, shows all the locations with some photographs. Entirely shot in 70mm, the movie is conceived as a kind of guided meditation, a unique audiovisual experience in which only music and images lead the viewer's mind.

Mariko Mori at the Adobe Museum of Digital Media

Mariko Mori - Adobe Museum of Digital Art

The Adobe Museum of Digital Media opens his brand new virtual exhibition introducing the new project of Mariko Mori. Let's talk a bit about the museum before getting onto the work : the Adobe Museum is a virtual space dedicated to the contemporary digital arts, founded by the famous company one year ago. The museum is built around a 3D space containing several rooms specially designed for each exhibition. The last exhibitions featured artists as Toni Oursler or John Maeda. Currently the new exhibition is conceived by the famous japanese artist Mariko Mori, and it's called "Journey to Seven Light Bay".
More precisely, it's not exactly an exhibition but more a work in progress of a new piece of art, which could be considered both as land art and digital art. it utilises advanced digital technologies to give the piece of art a kind of interactive aspect. The work will be composed of two monumental elements placed into a bay in the island of Okinawa, in Japan. The first element, a transparent pillar, is already installed on a rock. The second one will be a huge spherical installation which will float on the water and change its colour according to the tide. The whole will be placed in order to the shadow of the pillar reaches the sphere on winter solstice. This work is in some way a link : technology meets nature, and prehistoric art (see the megalithic works like Stonehenge) meets contemporary creation.
