About

Coralie Vogelaar is a research-based interdisciplinary artist. Her work consists of systematically conducted studies that reveal the mechanisms within our visual culture, in relation to the human body. Taking computer sciences as her inspiration, she explores the borderland between computer and man, showing the communication between the two and the new ways of seeing and behaving that can emerge from this. Why is it that we find one image more appealing than another? How do we arrive at these preferences, and what is their impact?

For Arranging, Moving, Rotating, Packing’ Vogelaar collected an archive of 3D scans of classical sculptures from art history. The poses of these human figures from sculptural traditions form a big part of our collective memory. This archive became the starting point for the installation that will be shown at BRADWOLFF PROJECTS. Vogelaar applied an optimal-packing algorithm to this database of sculptures; an algorithm that is normally used in the packaging industry to calculate the most efficient way of packaging spatial objects in a container. By using this algorithm, she was able to find poses that could be perfectly intertwined with one another. The resulting images were translated into various media, and are now presented in the gallery as a total installation.
