Rafael Lozano-Hemmer / A Draft of Shadows

2014-11-02 - 2015-04-26

Artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer works with robot-controlled light and sound, radio waves, motion sensors, film projections, animations in real time and location-specific sounds and voices. In his large-scale installations the virtual meets the real.

As a visitor, you are invited to be a co-creator. With the help of your movements and heartbeats, the work takes on its own life outside of the artist's control. In Pulse Room, a sea of light bulbs blinks in concert with visitors' pulses. Frequency and Volume is a playful sound installation that visitors influence with their own shadows.

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (b. 1967, Mexico City) resides in Montreal, Canada. His installations have been shown in several of the world's leading art institutions and biennials. A Draft of Shadows at Bildmuseet is his first solo exhibition in Scandinavia. During the same period he is also participating in  Digital Revolution, a group exhibition produced by Barbican Centre, London, now exhibited at Tekniska museet in Stockholm.
