Thoughts on the exhibition – light, color, sound (2008)

(Even though my exhibition has long been over, this entry is still valid for those who are interested in the connection between seeing and listening, painting and music)

 

Light, colour, sound, who is not fascinated by  these three phenomena? They are associated with vibrations, waves, and perhaps moods, but they are difficult to grasp in all their mysterious immateriality.

 

In our everyday language, we often mix them in words such as “bright red, brightly colourful”, “shrill, screaming colours” … In painting we encounter “colour shades” and “colour shadows”. When sound becomes music – and this is primarily meant by sound in this exhibition – “sound colours” and “light or dark sound images” can arise.

 

As you know, there are people for whom the combination of sound and colour, music and image are so strong that they see a colour in a tone or hear a tone at the same time (synaesthesia), which is now an enrichment rather than a confusion of the senses. This affects only a few people. More often, the most common or usual phenomenon occurring is rather that people perceive light in certain sounds or musical passages. And quite often we want people to have something for the ear as well as for the eye.

 

For this reason, image sequences in movies, advertising and computer technology are “music” or “converted” into sound. In addition, scientists and artists are often involved, often separated, sometimes in collaboration with the interfaces of light, colour, sound. Musicians compose pieces of music (for example, Mussorgsky’s paintings of an exhibition). On the other hand, attempts were made to transform the sound into musical images (Kandinsky, Klee, Kupka …) to mixed forms (Yves Klein, John Cage …)

Nowadays you try to visualize sound with experiments, installations,events, video clips, computer technology … but I would like to stay with my pictures.

 

I have been dealing with the following questions for a long time:

What unites sound and music?

How can I play music in a picture? Does it go far at all ? Where can I find parallels and points of contact between dynamic music and actually static painting? But where do the similarities end?

The answer to these “old” questions is always different and new; because the artistic realization is as individual and subjective as the personal perception and remains an attempt like the answer to the questions: What is art? What is love? What is life? And the visitor will also find his own answers …[ Google translate – I missed the English version]

Chabad Hosts Thousands of Eclipse-Chased Across America – Centers along its path offered a Jewish perspective on the spectacle in the sky – Chabad-Lubavitch News

A total solar eclipse streaked across the United States Monday, Aug. 21. In its 70-mile-wide path, people saw the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into darkness, with trails of light streaming through the sky around the silhouette of the moon.

Millions of people witnessed the historic spectacle as the eclipse traveled a path from Oregon to South Carolina. Chabad centers along its route hosted informative and inspirational programs to provide a Jewish perspective on the event.

Streamers of light are often visible around the silhouette of the moon during a solar eclipse, which will take place next on Monday, Aug. 21.

Follow the link for more photos and their descriptions.

 

I’m always obsessed with something related to the Royals. I had no idea from where this idea came from. Probably, it came from children stories books which I read when I was little which always telling stories about happy ending stories, where the prince and princes living happily ever after eventually. The stories were vary, from land of Europe such as  the stories of Snow White and Prince Florian in Snow Whites and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella and Prince ‘Charming’ Henry, Prince Adam in Beauty and the Beast. From the Middle East, I admired Princes Jasmine and Aladdin. And there was Mulan from China. Oh, I should mention Indonesian radio drama that I always listened during in my childhood, Saur Sepuh, which was telling stories of Madangkara Kingdom with Brama Kumbara as its king. Yeah, I was living in fairy tales. [ ]
