KITTY KABURO: CRYSTAL OPUS

KITTY KABURO: CRYSTAL OPUS

Escolta has historically been a site for many firsts. One of which was being a portal for delivery of ice from Wentham Lake in Boston during the turn of the century. This fueled commerce and brought up other previously unheard of possibilities, such as the first ice cream parlor in the Philippines. The construction of the Crystal Arcade in the 1930s was the culmination of such firsts for the people of Manila. 

Crystal Opus is an ode to the shimmering memory of the Crystal Arcade in Escolta, an architectural masterpiece by Andres Luna de San Pedro. The ephemeral nature of ice and the intangibility of light are used as a prism to project, reflect or distort both the frustrations and joys of turning vision into physical reality. 

Ultimately a triumph of memory over regret, Crystal Opus is also a tribute to the city, its continuing story and the spirits that live on. The work brings a solid monument into the realm of fluidity and constant change, as a way of questioning whether the failure of permanence in an impermanent world is really a failure at all.

A murmur is that low sound one hears when people are speaking simultaneously; usually vague and continuous. These are often gentle utterances that express an opinion. While unclear and indistinguishable, it is an audible undertone that reflects an impression.
Your voice will be heard through the choice that you make. By selecting the peculiar combination of sight and sound you can take part in this sensory experience. The contradiction, similarity and disparity of the juxtapositions convey various layers of meanings, reactions and responses from different individuals. What is yours?
“The subconscious is ceaselessly murmuring, and it is by listening to these MURMURS that one hears the truth.” – Gaston Bachelard

KAT MEDINA: THE SOLUTION BEFORE ITSELF

A piece of plywood used as a palette for mixing cement, a cloth covered in minute actions and a pile of cigarettes on a plate.

The objects presented are remnants from the activity of finding resolute actions; their forms, like habits are defined through an accumulation of time. These objects are not solutions themselves - these are scratch pads for the possible. Their existence relies on this distance from an end and only as useful when an action is performed on it. These remnants are records of strategies, the conscious distance before the articulated making.

Kat Medina is a painter and object-maker based in Quezon City.

Mars Bugaoan installs his project in Escolta for this September’s ESC Project. Initially mounted in UP Diliman (Crawl Installation, Dec 2014), NOMADIC is a series of wanderings and wonderings. As a site-responsive and ephemeral installation, the different visual experiences are induced by the various places and venues coupled with his material medium. The heated vinyl plastic depicts the idea of life’s transitory nature – the uncertainty of universal condition. According to Bugaoan, “It speaks of all the things that we are trying to deal with every day, the unstable reality that we are trying to transcend.” As an artist, he is fascinated with using plastic because of its unfortunate abundance and flexibility. The process of manipulation results into the creation of invasive forms that provokes introspection and questions.

BRIAN MORENO DES FELICIANO FRANZ PANTALEON ISSAY NODALO MITA SANTIAGO : TRANSFUSE

Dancers dance. Poets write. Painters paint. Artists generally express themselves exclusively in the art vocabulary they are eloquent in. "Transfuse" is an exhibit-performance that integrates the work of different creatives into a unified output. The exhibit includes reproductions of the poems, the materials used in movement study sessions for choreography, and projections of the dancers in rehearsal. The performance involves dancers interpreting spoken word recordings through contemporary dance choreography that will recreate a black painted images on canvas reminiscent of calligraphy/ink blots. 

Transfuse hopes to encourage more exploratory collaborations in weaving visual arts, performing arts, digital-multimedia arts, and other artistic expressions.

For this month's Esc Project, the artists will be presenting "To Tomorrow" and "Insomniac, two from the fifteen piece in the spoken word choreography anthology of Franz Pantaleon. Alongside several other production artists and dancers, Franz Pantaleon and Mita Santiago will be creating a line-up of videos and performances involving dancers with different genre backgrounds interpreting his poems into dance.

Lou Lim (b. 1989) earned her BFA (cum laude) from the University of the Philippines, Diliman with an award for Most Outstanding Thesis in 2011. Her works are primarily concerned with relationships and connections between individuals, their contexts, between objects and visual imagery and what these relations articulate. By creating new contexts for the familiar, she engages with surfaces to see through the surface. Lim has been active in group exhibitions since 2011 and has been selected by the Pavillon Neuflize OBC of Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France to participate in a residency program this coming November. — with Lou Lim at 98B.

FERD FAILANO: FAILED ATTEMPT ON RECREATING MEMORIES

FERD FAILANO: FAILED ATTEMPT ON RECREATING MEMORIES

“A Failed Attempt on Recreating Memories” is a project that explores how we try and fail to hold on to those moments and events that may be slowly drifting away from our memories. It is about time and identity. Ferd Faliano creates ink on paper renditions that are layered with translucent textile works along with a few found objects and installations. 

According to Faliano, “Change, most of the time, is good but memories make us who we are. Each passing second we create another memory, each and every second a memory flies to the furthest corners of our mind, each passing second we become a person slightly different from the person we were a second ago. “A Failed Attempt on Recreating Memories” is an attempt to hold on a little longer to those memories being concealed slowly by new ones. There is nothing wrong with change, but there is nothing wrong with looking back either.”

These were Faliano’s thoughts that stimulated the project:
“We spontaneously went to the beach one time, me and a bunch of friends. I can’t remember the exact day and month, all I remember is that it’s probably a weekend four or five years ago. I can remember a few details, where we slept, how we got there etc. but a big bulk of the memory is now blurred like who exactly are the people I am with. We had a really good time and so a year later we decided to go to that same place and do the same things but it wasn’t really the same. We came back like four times after that but nothing has remained constant, it was always different. 
Time is always linear; we could never experience the same things and events exactly as we have experienced them the first time. All of us are aware of this but still we can’t help ourselves from wanting to relive those “magical moments” that happened in our past.

One of my earliest childhood memories is that of Christmas. I think many of us would agree that Christmas when we were still kids are a whole lot different than what we experience now. Each year, we try to recreate the Christmas we had the year before, but each year something always changes. It has a lot to do with our perception of things and the status of our life in that current moment, but we always wish we could experience Christmas again like we had when we were kids.”

The number of likes or follows you have assumes your value in the social media world. We are so occupied by the number of likes we get on any given post. In fact, we often go as far in asking people to like our posts. This in a way has evolved into a type of “monetary value,” exchanging likes for likes or follows for follows. 

In Emergence, Miguel Lope Inumerable produced a time-based piece that makes use of these "likes" as a trigger in generating a digital drawing which will be projected projection on the wall. A software collects the data periodically to update the drawing. The data, where this drawing is based, is derived from the likes accumulated from the Facebook Page connected to the software. Every time a person likes the page, another line is formed, thus, transforming the whole image into something new. The resulting piece, at any given time, is a collaboration of the artist and the people who contribute to its existence.

Miguel Lope Inumerable graduated with Bachelors Degree in Science major in Computer Science in Ateneo de Manila University. He works with different media but mostly with traditional drawing and expanded drawing using sculpture, installation and new media. His work process usually involves creating systems through an ordered procedure, resulting in sometimes unplanned outputs.

Selected exhibitions and residencies include Shangyuan Art Museum, Beijing, China (October 2014); Takt Kunstprojektraum, Berlin, Germany (July 2013); Transparent, La Place, Barcelona, Spain (November 2013)

JETT ILAGAN: WHAT LIES AHEAD

JETT ILAGAN: WHAT LIES AHEAD

What if one day, you wake up and find out that everyone you know and everything you have are only replicas of your so-called reality? Superficially, they still look the same and are composed of the same physical and molecular make-up but deep inside you, you know that something has gone wrong. What was once familiar to you is no longer what it used to be.

For Project ESC, Jett Ilagan presupposes a fictitious realm that denounces concrete and readily digestible answers. Music being innately abstract, gives way to present a work where ambiguity and arbitrariness can be thought of as a driving force to fuel creation.

Derek Tumala: CONUNDRUMS & BASS

Derek Tumala: CONUNDRUMS & BASS

Capping 2013’s ESC Projects is the Future Primitive Series: CONUNDRUMS & BASS.  This is a Live Video Mapping Installation / Performance on Random 3D Surface & Objects + Noise & Sound Integration by Derek Tumala. 

Sinking Islands. Super Typhoons. Destructive Earthquakes. Volcanic Eruptions. 

Conundrums & Bass is a sensory experience installation about the cause and effects of climate change through a nonlinear narrative. By creating and using images, sounds, audio glitches, noise and electronic sounds, this installation/multimedia projection hopes to recreate the mood brought by climate havoc and characterize the catastrophic effects of climate change. It explores the possibilities of the two-dimensional video format to translate it into a three-dimensional experience through video mapping and animation giving the illusion of movement and spatial reinvention

Conundrums & Bass invites the viewer to interact with his work an hopes to elicit an ongoing dialog about recent events, sustainability, community adaptation and environmental issues.

Conundrums & Bass is part of the Future Primitive Project Series. The series is a self-initiated experimental project that explores unconventional canvasses for visual and auditory experiences through new media. It simulates logical, procedural, and hierarchal movements of nature in integrated media to establish a sensory experiential environment in an unexpected space.
