  • hyper
    new york NEW YORK

    on display at laurence miller gallery until march 27

    press release: laurence miller gallery is pleased to present hyper, an exhibition of 15 color photographs by the forty-eight year old french photographer denis DARZACQ. hyper refers to the new garish supermarkets in paris and rouen where consumer goods, brightly packaged and presented, make for a vivid and contemporary backdrop for his pictures. darzacq brings street dancers, mostly young men and women in their late teens and early twenties into these stores and asks them to perform their leaps, jumps, twirls, and other gravity-defying movements. the photographs explore the tension between being and having, between the human body and the built environment. they offer a fresh, witty and intensely colorful commentary on global consumerism and freedom of spirit.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    thomas BUSECK + oliver v. MALM: a wooden fluidity is a fully parametric driven design concept for a “villas colony”  in osaka, japan. based on a fluid system, which interacts with the given assets, and provided us with all parameters. a hole set of scripts in maya and rhino have been developed evaluating the fluid system to design the villas. the main idea was to generate a system which provides a continuous language of design on the exterior as well as on the interior and all subsystems (i.e. structural elements as well as design elements). each system refers to all other systems in order to provide a fluid like, inherent design concept.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    liwen MAO: this project finds potential geometries that arise within a swarm intelligence system. such bottom up systems can not only create global complex phenomena but also unexpected smaller scale forms and gives the designer more localized control within the system. the project uses curves negotiate between the hierarchies of ornament and structure based on local rules. the advantage of this methodology of form finding is that it can break the limit of human imagination and create unlimited yet reasonable forms by changing specific parameters.
