M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste échte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

Between You and I, 2006

Installation, 32:45 min., 1200 x 1000 x 1700 cm.

Collection: Courtesy Anthony McCall.

McCall's animation Between You and I presents slowly shifting beams of light whose physical characteristics are underscored by being projected in a dark, smoke-filled room. On the floor we see a languid choreography of ellipses and waves that evolve progressively in the space. In fact, the installation consists of a graphic interaction of animated stripes of light that shape two vertical, three-dimensional, more-or-less conical forms. They seem static, but slowly change, thus establishing a dialogue between the two.

In this performative light installation, the viewer's physical experience of perception is crucial. The installation invites the visitor to approach the image, to step through a transparent veil of light. A choreographic dialogue between spectator and sculpture is gradually established. Between You and I is a continuation of McCall's classical film work Line Describing a Cone (1973), which along the way has become one of the most important reference works in the discipline known as ‘expanded cinema.’
