Cave Caustics – Case 11 – Flag of Convenience, Alan Bogana

Swiss artist Alan Bogana’s computer-generated video projection Flag of Convenience (2014) is one of several “case studies” of his Cave Caustics Project (2013–15), which explores the behaviour of light on various translucent media such as water, plastic, diamonds and textiles.

Clouds of the Second Kind, Philipp Gasser

With the help of current computer programs, Philipp Gasser created a cloud that is completely digitally generated. Clouds of the Second Kind (2016) is based on general types of cloud formations such as stratus, cumulus, cirrus, cirrostratus and cirrocumulus.

The video installation Circus lives from the tension between the simple, static recording of images using digital photography, and their technically high-quality animation. Against an undefined black ground, various micro-scenarios of the eponymous plaza in Geneva float in and out of view, as the different components expand into numerous layers.
