La mécanique artistique

Loin des paradis artificiels et des découpages d'oreilles qui enflamment l'imaginaire du public, il existe des artistes qui amènent à l'Art un volet... technique.
Je sais que cela casse la mythologie de l'artiste "perché", mais considérons qu'il est nullement impératif de louer un nid de coucou pour avoir la fibre... artistique.

City of Dreams by Hu Shaoming
In his piece known as City of Dreams, the artist also reflects on our ties to nature. In this sculpture, another city is growing, this time upwards, from the top of a giant, submerged seahorse. Wrapped in a fairy tale perspective and just as eye-catching as Umbrella, this piece has a greater message that criticizes present societies. With this work, Shaoming seeks to "evoke a sense of crisis that we protect nature." (mymodernmet.com)

What does music look like ?
Like a 3-D take on Jackson Pollock, the latest work of the artist Martin Klimas begins with splatters of paint in fuchsia, teal and lime green, positioned on a scrim over the diaphragm of a speaker.
Then the volume is turned up.

For each image, Klimas selects music -typically something dynamic and percussive, like Karlheinz Stockhausen, Miles Davis or Kraftwerk- and the vibration of the speaker sends the paint aloft in patterns that reveal themselves through the lens of his Hasselblad. For this series, Klimas spent about 1000 shots to produce the final images from his studio in Düsseldorf, Germany.
In addition to the obvious debt owed to abstract expressionism, Klimas says his major influence was Hans Jenny, the father of cymatics, the study of wave phenomena.
