EPHEMEROSCOPE (2016) – Ken Christiaens / Jürgen De Blonde
An interactive installation developed by Icon-Brussels for the Galerie Ravenstein, in partnership with Creative District & BOZAR.
Ephemeroscope is an intriguing laser light installation, placed in the centre of Gallery Ravenstein’s interior ‘Rotonde’, evoking an immediate and often forgotten sense of connection between men & its surrounding cosmic nature.
Linking hi-tech, natural and human-constructed elements, this wintertime installment acts as a digital recreation of Foucault’s pendulum, interpreting and translating ephemeric and live-GPS data into an authentic representation of Earth’s rotation, lunar phase & relative position.
AV-artist and ICON-Brussels founder Ken Christiaens and renowned Belgian soundpioneer Jürgen De Blonde create a timeless, oddly inviting biotope and soundlandscape, echoing the mysterious charm of Nordic woodlands and nature’s proximity, delicately constructed around immediate audience’s gestures and movements.
State-of-the-art lasertechnology & programming, real-time sound capturing & processing of movement, a 7.1 surround representation, a unique setting and a balanced blend of natural resources make for a multifaceted, layered experience, bringing one to self-reference and contemplation, possibly even reconnecting to the emotional self.
Ephemeroscope (2016) is created by Icon-Brussels, a new creative platform for innovative research and development, fusing art and contemporary technological advancements. The work is created as a 1st commission to Ravenstein Gallery, initiating a new dynamic of art, technology and interactivity, revitalising and dynamising the gallery to its once acclaimed grandeur.
