Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
CD – Prele
Narrow strips of wood, roughly five inches long, thin, connected to each other to reach a considerable length (up to ten meters), totally suspended by special rods, shape sinuous undulations, as sculptural instruments and architectural installations, artistic and musical. This construction by Denis Tricot and Eric Cordier is light but with an imposing appearance and has been unravelled with painstaking care. It’s modulated each time in public spaces, both ‘en plein air’ and indoors (eg at the ‘Ecole Primarie de St.Pantaleon’), catalyzing multidirectional energies in spaces. The wood has an evident and resonant materiality, and is organized in a machinic construct, ready to be re-manipulated. It is the basis for a lot of possible vibrations: through being beaten, sawn, delicately fluttered in the wind or stressed by arches and wands. The structure can be manipulated by audible bodies, amplification, and even through visuals – in this way it reminds of those same waveforms, hidden representations of the invisible structure of any recorded sequence.
