Exquisite Clock and Venetian Mirror at CAFA Art Museum - 19 Oct/21 Nov 2010

Year: 2010

Authorship: Joao Wilbert, Andy Cameron, Oriol Ferrer Mesia, Sam Baron, Goncalo Campos

The prestigious Chinese cultural institution will host from 19th October to 21st November the V&A Museum's touring exhibition “Decode: Digital Design Sensations”, which features the two interactive art installations by Fabrica. The exhibition, launched last December, offers a major survey of the best contemporary digital art and design from around the world, and, following the public and critical acclaim obtained in London, it has started a worldwide tour with CAFA as first stop.
Venetian Mirror is a large scale interactive installation blending contemporary digital technology with traditional Venetian glass. When the visitor walks up to the installation, their image doesn’t immediately appear in the mirror. Only if they keep very still, will the reflection slowly appear, like a photograph being developed. It is an interactive piece which engages the sense of proprioceptivity - the sense of oneself and one’s body, in the here-and-now. Exquisite Clock is a clock made of numbers taken from everyday life – seen, captured and uploaded by people from all over the world. Built around an online database, the clock exists as a web 2.0 website, an iPhone application and as a series of site specific installations.
