vellum | d / sk 2009
slices of a virtual sculpture, dimension 100 x 125 x 80 meters
video artist, sound design: robert seidel
comission: art center nabi, seoul

In a time of complete virtualisation of knowledge, science and monetary flows the virtual sculpture “vellum” transfers the memory of one specific urban rhythm to another locality. The multiple LED screens of the COMO at SKT Tower (Seoul, South Korea) provide several thinly sliced views into this gigantic translucent formation, revealing time and space within the otherwise invisible as well as impossible structure.

The perceived interpenetration of skeletal architecture and unrolled landscapes reveal textures of the man-made restructuring of nature. Their different granular perspectives create a fibrous volume of possibilities fusing past, present and future. In their flatness the visible sculptural slices are reminiscent to our accelerated life, shifting into technology and transcending the physical body. The perceived transformation is based on the sculpture wandering through the building seen from a fixed point of view. In vellum motion is form and form is motion...

Society6 stands for a world where art is inclusive and diversity of expression is celebrated. Where individual artists have the proper societal support, freedom, confidence, and resources to realize their full creative potential.

Create works that reflect the human conditions of our society. In spite of the significant contributions that artists make to the vitality of our communities, there hasn’t been an adequate support structure in place to empower artists to realize their best work, on their own terms – until now. Society6 is a platform for emerging and established artists from every creative discipline to showcase their talent as it unfolds. An online community where no one who is doing good work remains undiscovered and without opportunities – anywhere in the world. Society6 pushes the physical boundaries of creativity inviting everyone who is inspired by the artistic process, as much as the end-result, to contribute to the cultural commentary. Society6 is the nexus of original artistic works created and curated by the artists and supporters themselves – providing direct access to quality people, art and events that you want to know about.

A trip across Paris in a van. Lost drumsticks. A cafe you'd never expect to visit before the age of 60. An hour of waiting, and then, voilà--a few notes on the harmonium, a grand piano, a heavenly voice. Sigur Ros on a Take Away Show.

Rose Lorkowski (Amy Adams) finds herself a single mother attempting to support her son Oscar (Jason Spevack) and her unreliable sister Norah (Emily Blunt) while working a mundane job as a maid. Once the head cheerleader in school with plenty of prospects, Rose now has little to show for her years, and while she still sees the former lead football player (Steve Zahn), it is little more than a despondent affair. When Oscar is expelled from public school, Rose takes a job as a bio-hazard crime-scene cleaner to help pay for a private education, and brings Norah on to help in her steadily growing business. As the sisters work to clean up the messes left behind by the chaotic lives of others, they must learn to reconcile their own differences and overcome a troubled past if they hope to prosper in their newfound venture.
