Quantum Space (QS) is an interactive multi-screen video installation. The panoramic projections immerse the viewers into the space of particles or quantums of light. The software program, one the basic parts of the QS installation, generates all images by using characteristics of elementary particle simulations, like gravity, magnetism, and viscosity. Each time the viewer moves, an impulse occurs to create different images, which never repeat. Every single viewer’s movement in the space of the installation creates a fluctuation in the system. New particles are created, evolved in space in correspondence with the parameters of the system that also influence the global state of the system. It has been crucial for us to fascinate and to captivate the viewer by our project. And we hope, that we have found the key. The viewer is not just a simple viewer, but he/she also takes part in a kind of a game. While playing, one feels like they can overcome the physical mortality of the human body. The viewer is no more a human, but a shape of quantums as well as both the guide and the resident of the world, which is settled through the looking-glass of this special digital universe.
Kuflex (Russia) is a laboratory of interactive art where audio and visual experiments are held. We are trying to combine interactive technologies with the concept of generative art. Kuflex was created in 2013 by video artist Igor Tatarnikov (a.k.a. Sodazot), programmer Denis Perevalov and curator Ksenia Lyashenko. We do not strive to reflect the political and social reality and the contexts of their media interpretations. We are more interested in leaving reality behind and moving into the digital dimension. We create a space where every spectator can get an insight in an active way. Interactivity is an interaction, implication and personal experience. It is our perception of contemporary art. As a laboratory, we are open to collaboration and innovative experiments. We are inspired to live in time of interdisciplinary practices. When one art object can combine attainments in mathematics, physics, optics, programming, electrical engineering and also music, arts and dancing. That is the reason why we are especially interested in creating projects with a team of experts in different professional fields. Kuflex is a participant of multidimensional festivals of digital art and exhibitions, where the projects integrate science, technologies and art.
