Monotone Symphony by Quadratura In March 1960, at the Galerie Internationale d'Art Contemporain, Paris, Yves Klein presented his Monotone Symphony and Anthropometries of the Blue Period. Whilst a ten-piece orchestra played the Monotone Symphony, a work consisting of a single tone, three *** models rolled themselves in blue paint and then pressed their bodies onto giant pieces of paper to create paintings. Klein's idea was to distance the artist from the creation of the work, for the models to directly create the images. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this major event in contemporary art Quadratura and GV Art present a new performance utilising the latest technology. On this occasion a single musician using a laptop computer played a new interpretation of the Monotone Symphony and by using light, rather than paint, Quadratura re-created The Anthropometries of the Blue Period images. With the use of their state of art projector and technology systems, the recreation not only paid homage to Yves Klein but also attempted a new exciting interpretation of Klein's work. "We wanted to develop Klein's idea of physically distancing the artist from the artistic process, of becoming a catalyst rather than a protagonist. By utilising interactive light as an artistic medium, we have further realised Klein's ideal of an entirely timeless experience, where the art created by the dancers does not ever physically exist; its passing marked only in memory." Yves Klein said of his Monotone Symphony, "even in its ...
LumenOrtis' Light Art Exhibition Bournemouth: 994138 LumenOrtis' Light Art Exhibition Bournemouth: 994138 by Quadratura. 885138 UK soldiers and 109000 civilians were killed during World War 1. Each side of the monument has 248535 pixels projected on it, one pixel representing a single life. Each pixel will fade in from black to white, before turning red briefly and then returning to black. The duration of each pixel's cycle will represent the length of that persons life. Each second will represent one year of their life. The point at which the pixel turns red is the point at which they died. We cannot aim to accurately reflect the actual ages of the soldiers and civilians concerned, rather we will use an approximation based on, for the soldiers, the average life expectancy during warfare. As each 'life' will be a different length, the resulting image will appear as a slow, moving 'TV static' image with thousands of red dots flashing randomly across the surface. Without knowing the context, the resulting image will appear initially overbearing and complex, almost chaotic. We will provide a description of what the piece represents on a card located at the base of the memorial. Once the description is read, the piece will take on an entirely different form. From an almost abstract work to a cold, clear representation of historical fact. We also envisage that by its abstract appearance, rather than subverting its image by adding recognisable imagery, we are being respectful of both the monument and what it represents. (source ...

The Masters of Illusionistic Ceiling Painting The Masters of Illusionistic Ceiling Painting - National Gallery of Art Illusionistic ceiling painting is a traditional technique developed during the Renaissance, which includes the techniques of perspective "di sotto in sù" (up and down) and "quadratura" (squaring). This magnificent procedure was further developed during the Seven***th Century when it reached its apex with the emergence of Baroque and Rococo art, which regularly employed the technique of "trompe l'oeil" (fools the eye) - a quintessential tool of perspective -- which, along with other spatial effects such as "foreshortening", deliberately generated the illusion of three-dimensional space on an otherwise two-dimensional or mostly flat ceiling surface, high above the viewer. This procedure is frequently used to visually suggest an open sky, such as with the "oculus" in "Andrea Mantegna's Camera Degli Sposi" (or a fictive architectural space such as in the illusionistic cupola - one of Andrea Pozzo's frescoes in Sant'Ig***o in Rome). This successful technique is the result of the work of Italian Renaissance artists, who applied their confidence in handling this more advanced, stylish prospect to projects for ceilings, whereby they successfully overcame the problems of utilizing linear perspective to the concave surfaces of domes in order to dissolve the architecture and create illusions of unlimited space.

Quadratura: Video Street Art Performance, 17th August 2009 In the dying hours Monday 17th August 2009, Quadratura set out into the dark streets of London for an entirely different kind of public performance that would see graffiti artists Banksy and codefc, as unwitting collaborators. Using PatchBox, our custom video mapping software, we were able to literally draw layers of video onto the existing architecture without worrying too much about projector placement. We then used PaintBox and a graphics tablet to mask out and colour in, the graffiti; all in real-time.

JACQUELINE TRELOAR'S GREAT PAVEMENT PROJECT! This is a video that I shot of my friend, artist Jacqueline Treloar's latest project. The following is a quote describing the work "The exhibit of this commanding work, An Interpretation of The Westminster Abbey Great Pavement, will hang from the ceiling of The Church of the Holy Trinity, Toronto along the east aisle from 19 January to 9 February 2011, and will be mirrored on the south side of the church with a new piece of multicoloured layered and cut nylon of the same size, which holds the lines of text and the quadratura patterns in the design of the pavement. The Great Pavement was created between 1999 and 2000 and exhibited in the atrium of the Library and Gallery Cambridge, Ontario, from 2000 --2001. It replicates the 1268 Westminster Abbey Great Pavement in size and pattern format, being a 24 ft square of translucent nylon with the shapes of the various elements of the original pavement cut from coloured nylon, stencilled with acrylic paint, and then superimposed one over another and appliquéd to the nylon base". Please check out this amazing exhibition if you can! Also, for best viewing results, please watch in 720 HD by accessing the arrow pointing upwards just under the video on the lower right hand side.
Out Of White by Quadratura A site specific video and sound installation created for the GV Art Gallery in London. From the wall coloured blocks project and recess in reaction to a specifically composed soundtrack. The speed, colour and density of the blocks movement vary according to the volume and pitch of the sound. These blocks look 3D and appear to be coming out of the wall above the heads of the viewer.
