Nam June Paik Art Center, Seoul

With the newly reoriented direction of Manu Park, the NJP Art Center will seek to strengthen its role to develop initiatives to revitalize Paik’s artistic legacy. As a first step in doing so this year, the NJP Art Center is delighted to present a new exhibition “Mediascape, à pas de Nam June Paik.” This exhibition picks up on the notion of ‘mediascape,’ which was put forward by scholars such as anthropologist Arjun Appadurai (1990) and art historian David Joselit (2005).

In the two-storey space of the NJP Art Center, the works of Nam June Paik and other artists will be mingled together. The whole space will be made to constitute a kind of seamless mediascape where visitors play its ‘topography’ out in a bodily manner, and thus the Paikian way of living in the mediascape can come out in performative and revelatory ways. Additionally, we will also use the façade of the Seoul Square building, located across from the Seoul Station, as part of our exhibition space, which was realized in cooperation with Gana Mplanet. One of Paik’s “Suite 212″ video series will be projected every night onto the huge screen, soaring 256 feet high and stretching 325 feet wide, which consists of 42,000 LEDs, so that the two physically distant sites are connected within this exhibition’s mediascape. The exhibition is an effort to pave the way for a new prospect to lay open the embedded but hitherto veiled layers of the Paikian mediascape.

Custom MediaFacade for Autostadt, Wolfsburg

Autostadt, the visitor attraction centre adjacent to the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, Germany, featured a main façade with an integrated Neon installation that needed to be replaced. The new installation had to adhere to three major design criteria: it had to simulate the original neon installation, blend seamlessly with the building’s clean, modern architecture and it had to remain true to Volkswagen’s values of environmental protection and sustainable development.

Innovationsforum Urban Screens, Berlin

Urban Screens, digitale Bildschirme im Stadtraum, werden als Medienträger künftig herkömmliche Poster und Plakate mehr und mehr ablösen. Die neue Technologie bietet vielfältige Nutzungspotenziale sowie wirtschaftliche Wachstumschancen, birgt aber gleichermaßen soziale Herausforderungen und Umweltgefahren. Das Innovationsforum Urban Screens, eine vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) geförderte Initiative von Public Art Lab, nimmt sich dieser Auseinandersetzung an. Seit März 2011 trafen Akteure des Interaktionsfeldes aus den Bereichen Infrastruktur, Technologie, Content, Stadtentwicklung und Cross Media Marketing zusammen, um zentrale Fragestellungen, Potentiale sowie Risiken der Urban Screens zu diskutieren. Diese Auseinandersetzung wird am 25./26. Mai 2011 im Rahmen des Innovationsforum Urban Screens im Collegium Hungaricum Berlin fortgesetzt. Die Panels ‚Urban Screens als urbane Sichtfenster’, ‚Urban Screens als Kommunikationsplattformen’, ‚Urban Screens als multimediale Bühnen’ und ‚Mediale Stadtentwicklung’ sowie das ‚World Cafe’, ein prozessorientiertes Brainstorming, bereiten dafür die Plattform.

Nexus, London

Jason Bruges Studio’s latest artwork has been unveiled at Sunderland Station. The 144m long piece presents a virtual platform filled with travellers within a glass block wall. The 3m tall glass block wall in the underground train station has been turned into a large low-resolution video matrix (755×15 pixels). Behind the wall is a disused platform, which long ago used to see passengers waiting for trains. Now the tracks are long gone and the old platform is hidden from view., we have created ghostly characters that appear behind the glass wall opposite passengers waiting for the trains.
