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.

'In this series Philippe Van Snick departs from two intersecting curved lines. The space between the half arcs he fills with (0-9) color. Next, he extrapolates the form to a random decagon, which he dyes in the same colors. There are 5 gouaches for every colors, each one depicting different arcs and decagons.'

Why decagon?

a decagon is ten points connected

numbered (0>9) aritmetically I have the possibility of 

working into infinity

the point generates waves

ex. falling stone in water

colors are diff. wavelengths

In the third dimension (object)

in orbit, the object (0-9) takes on different forms even the

most unexpected
