The second series of Sara Ludy, Sylvain Sailly and Nicolas Sassoon’s collective project “Wallpapers” has launched today. The individual, artist-created digital patterns display full-screen on their own URLs. They are meant to be viewed online and as gigantic projections at international exhibitions and events:
Wallpapers offline takes form as site-specific installations comprised of large-scale video-projections. These site-specific installations employ wallpapers from the online catalogue and project them in space at a monumental scale, producing environments adjusted to the proportions of the architecture in context.
There are a lot of ANIMAL favorites in this series. Rick Silva is a stand-out. We’ve been fans of his work for a long time, but watching his flower vines creep, bloom and explode is particularly mesmerizing.
