A rainbow in your hand. Started as Masashi Kawamura’s personal project in summer 2007, and was soon published from a Japanese bookstore “Utrecht”. It’s a flipbook, but rather than seeing animation, it creates a 3D rainbow in your hand. This book won this years NY ADC silver cube.
‘A Study Of Time’
by rAndom International 2011
rAndom’s ‘Study of Time # 1’ is based on the studio’s recent scenography for the contemporary dance piece FAR by Wayne McGregor | Random Dance.
To be premiered at Design Miami Basel 2011, the installation takes light, it’s presence and it’s absence, as a medium for the representation of time. A vividly illuminated autonomous algorithm magically reveals the time of the day, re-imagining the principle of telling time from falling shadows as a contemporary light installation.
rAndom International was founded by Stuart Wood, Flo Ortkrass and Hannes Koch in 2002. The studio was set up to extend the perspective of contemporary artistic practice. Working from the fringes of art, design, science and architecture, rAndom develop projects and installations that re-interpret the ‘cold’ nature of digital-based work and emphasise the interaction between the animate (audience) and the inanimate (object), bringing the two into a powerful relationship of performance. The studio’s work has won many awards in the fields art, architecture and design. rAndom are represented by Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London.
