Eupalinos' Islands

This morning Eupalinos Ugajin invited me for a preview to his latest installation "Moving Islands". It is actually a collaborative work, curated by him.

The installation is not finished yet. Everyone who organized a collaborative event knows, how much work and obstacles is behind. But there is already more than enough to see that he decided to "soft open" the show.

The landing area is created by Scottius Polke. Some visitors gifts will be placed soon. You can partly walk and fly around and stand or hop on the islands. Some have funny animations and all are full of nice and crazy ideas. Have a closer look at the eggs at Oberon's raft. Eupalinos: "The raft by Oberon fires eggs that can trigger things on the other rafts." Very interesting is the moving of the rafts: " Most of the rafts are moving at random. They detect each other so as not to "mix". This script was written by Derek Michelson."

A work of her can be found at Mixed Pixels too

You will fall under water. Good! Because 3 artists placed works there. Pallina's fishes "bubbled me up". Too cute! Eupalinos commented: "Fly and then send you in a bubble, stand and they fight you, sit on the ground and hmm...they want to marry you." Try for yourself!

Listen to the music stream too. Eupalinos has handpicked 40 of his favorite pieces. Although the installation sounds are worth to be appreciated too.
