LEA16-Gem Preiz opens the Anthropic Principle on April 20, 2017

By – Linden Endowment for the Arts. Visit LEA16-Gem Preiz opens the Anthropic Principle on April 20, 2017 for original post.

Gem Preiz opens his “The Anthropic Principle”on LEA16 on April 20, 2017, and tells us the following about it:
“The Anthropic Principle” is composed on one hand of a short novel, on a second hand of 4 Sim-sized builds, and at last of 36 high resolution fractals, all components illustrating each others. It is to my eyes one single and consistent work which elements cannot be split, though some visitors could prefer to focus on the visual experience. However, please notice that the novel is not only the background of the installation but also its visit guide, which reading can avoid to miss something. It gives also some hints about the different sources that inspired me.

Please comply with the setting recommendations for a complete and better visit.

The music is available only on streaming on the Sim. It is a compilation of 4 extracts of “Inception” and “Interstellar” movies OST, both composed by Hans Zimmer.

The installation will remain open until end of June 2017. Meanwhile, “No Frontiers” remains open and can be reached thanks to the access board located at the end of the visit or thanks to its specific landmark (see picks in my profile) but its music will have to be listened from youtube, according to the indications given in the welcome hall of the exhibition.

Enjoy the reading, and the visit.

“Le Principe Anthropique” est un ensemble constitué d’une part d’un récit, d’autre part de 4 constructions de la taille d’une Sim, et enfin de 36 tableaux fractals, les différentes composantes s’illustrant mutuellement. C’est à mes yeux un tout indissociable. Certains visiteurs préfèreront s’en tenir à l’expérience visuelle. Néanmois le récit sert non seulement d’arrière plan à l’installation mais il en est aussi un guide de visite, dont la lecture permet de ne rien manquer. Il comporte en outre des notes indiquant les différentes sources que j’ai utilisées.

Le respect des paramètres est vivement recommandé.

La musique qui accompagne la visite n’est disponible qu’en streaming sur la Sim. Il s’agit de 4 extraits des bandes originales des films Inception et Interstellar, composées par Hans Zimmer.

L’installation sera ouverte jusqu’au 30 juin 2017. “No Frontiers” restera accessible à partir du panneau d’accès situé en fin de visite ou gràce à son landmark spécifique (voir les picks de mon profil)  mais sa musique d’accompagnement devra être écoutée sur youtube, selon les indications données dans le hall d’accueil de l’exposition.

Bonne lecture, et bonne visite.
