Isotopes and Daydream Installations by Nonotak Studio

Nonotak Studio – an art duo made up of Noemi Schipfer and Takami Nakamoto – is back with a new installation that promises to mess with your mind. They created Isotopes v.2, a hypnotizing light experience that was inspired by the devastation in Fukushima.

Nonotak describes it this way: “The idea of Isotopes is to generate a dematerialized space. The catalyst of the project has been post Fukushima’s atmosphere. This tragedy that collided within our memories and childhood has led us to think about the brittleness of reality. This point of no return reflects the brutality of this evolving world that surrounds us, replacing any individual’s existence into fiction. Isotopes is an open space which can also be perceived as a prison. At first, the slow and hypnotizing moving lights attract the visitor into the heart of it. Then, the rhythm and the intensity become continually more aggressive until it generates immaterial barriers: it’s easy to get in but neigh impossible to get out.”

For the Insanitus Festival 2013 in Kaunas, Lithuania, the studio just debuted Daydream V.2, an audiovisual installation that distorts our perception of space. Visitors who are standing in front of it will have light beams pass right through them as if they’re about to be teleported into another world.

“This installation is aimed at establishing a physical connection between the virtual space and the real space, blurring the limits and submerging the audience into a short detachment from reality. Lights generate abstract spaces while sounds define the echoes of virtual spaces.”

Daydream is an invitation to contemplation. The frontality of the installation leads the visitors to a passive position.”

    SEEING FOREST: SINGAPORE PAVILION AT…

    Art | May 18, 2024

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
