ANIMACIJE visual to near infrared spectrum

Revolucionarnost istraživanja Nade Žiljak
Do pojave Infraredarta nitko se nije bavio propitkivanjem pigmenta (bojila), kao temeljnog slikarskog materijala. Od 2009. Nada Žiljak eksperimentira s pigmentima. Kombinacijom znanja o raznovrsnosti pigmenta i njegovim planskim nanošenjem na platno uz suvremenu instalaciju kamere za očitavanje cjelovitosti slike, postavljeni su putokazi novim slikarskih mogućnostima.
Umjetničino istraživanje krenulo je od inovativne mogućnosti da slika različito strukturiranim pigmentima boja, od kojih su jedni čitljivi isključivo pomagalom za čitanje infra crvenih valova, a drugi pripadaju vidljivom dijelu sunčeva spektra. Na originalan način spojila je štafelajno slikarstvo sa suvremenim video medijem. Slika nije samo virtualno oslobođena svojih granica, ona prelazi granice mogućeg i ulazi u zonu oku nevidljivog spektra, ne kao slučajnost, ili dokaz fizičke činjenice, već kao odabir rada u zoni infracrvene svjetlosti. Infraredart jest vladanje područjem  koje je do jučer bilo umjetnički netaknuto. Nada Žiljak slika sa spoznajom o proširenom polju čitanja. Dvostruka slika koja je nastala svjesno računa sa suvremenom tehnologijom te unapređuje štafelajnu sliku kao medij novih maštarija i ludizma.
Direktno „ skeniranje“ jarkoplavoružičaste slike s žutim punktumom (kose na figuri akta) gledano kroz pomagalo prelazi u nevidljivo, to jest jarke boje prelaze u ružičasto ljubičasto sive tonove koji u konačnici postaju sivo-bijeli s crnim crtežom koji ne postoji u prvom gledanju bez pomagala. U tom prijelazu pogleda okom i pogleda kroz kameru mijenja se prva slika akta okrenutog publici, do druge slike crno bijelog akta okrenutog  leđima i dvijema maskama. Unutar slike događa se nešto poput smijene pseudo dana i noći, u kojem se koloristička raskoš duginih boja sunčeva (oku vidljiva) spektra postupno gubi i prelazi u crno-bijelo-sivu-pseudo-noć . Ali „dnevna“ slika nije i ona „noćna“! Naprotiv potpuno su različite iako su fizički prisutne na istoj platnenoj površini akrila. Ovaj stvaralački ludizam provokacija je našoj umišljenosti da golim okom savladavamo sliku. O ne! Umjenica poput maga, upisuju u slike tajne znakove, šali se nama i podmeće nam dokaze o svjetovima iza naših, o novim prostorima i drugačijim pogledima! Spoznaja virtualnog poduprta visokom tehnologijom događa se izvan ekrana, u klasičnoj štafelajnoj slici!
Revolucionarnost ovog istraživanja utemeljena je fizičko-optička spoznaji o mjerljivosti pigmenta u odnosu na vidljivo i infrared svjetlo. Nada Žiljak razotkrila je novi način korištenja boja (bojila) u predočavanju „vremena“ to jest slikarskog procesa u štafelajnoj slici. Teško je više zaustaviti jednom spoznatu mogućnost ovog različitog, tajanstvenog i ludičkog postupka.

Die Revolution des Experimentierens von Nada Žiljak
Bis zum Beginn der Infraredkunst hat sich niemand mit der Vernehmung von Pigment (Farbe), was das wichtigste in der Malerei ist, beschäftigt. Von 2009 experimentiert Nada Žiljak mit Pigmenten. Sie kombiniert ihr Wissen über die Vielfältigkeit der Pigmente mit ihren geplanten Malen auf der Leinwand mit der heutigen Instalation der Kamera die das ganze Bild zeigt. Sie geht einen neuen Weg der zu neuen malerischen Möglichkeiten führt.
Das Experimentieren der Künstlerin hat mit den inovativen Möglichkeiten begonnen dass sie mit verschieden strukturierten Pigmenten malt von denen man einige nur mit einem Gerät das die Infrarotwellen zeigt sehen werden können und andere im Teil des Farbspektrums sind (wir können sie sehen). Sie hat in einer originellen Art die Stafeleimalerei mit moderner Technologie verbunden. Das Bild ist nicht nur virtuell ihrer Grenzen befreit, sie überschreitet Grenzen des Möglichen und schreitet in die Zone des unsehbaren Spektrums, nicht zufällig,oder als ein Beweis eines physischen Faktes, sondern als ein Entschluss in der Zone des Infrarotspektrums zu arbeiten. Die Infraredkunst ist eine Herrschaft über ein Gebiet das bis Gestern noch unerforscht in der Kunst war. Nada Žiljak malt mit einer Erkenntnis des erweiterten Bereichs des Lesens. Das Doppelbild das entstanden ist hällt mit der neuen Technologie Schritt und verbessert die Stafeleimalerei und führt zu neuen Phantasien. Das direkte „Skenieren“ des blau- rosa Bildes mit dem gelben Punktieren (die Farbe des Haares auf dem Akt), durch das Hilfgerät führt zum unsehbaren, das heisst lebendige Farben bekommen graue und am Ende sieht man ein schwarz- weisses Bild das man am Anfang nicht sehen konnte. Das Bild ändert sich. Von einem Bild das ein Akt war den wir von vorne sahen entsteht ein Bild des Aktes von hinten mit zwei Masken. Im Bild enteht etwas wie eine Änderung von Tag und Nacht in dem lebendige Farben sich zu grauen entwirken. Es entsteht eine Art einer Pseudo- Nacht. Das „Tagbild“ ist nicht gleich dem „Nachtbild“! Im Gegenteil, sie sind total verschieden obwohl sie an der gleichen Leinwand gemalt sind. Diese Kreativität ist eine Provokation für unsere Augen. Oh nein! Die Künstlerin versteckt Zeichen hinter dem Bild und zeigt uns andere Welten und andere Erkenntnisse! Das Virtuelle mit der modernen Technologie besteht in einem Stafeleibild.
Die Revolution dieses Experimentierens hat eine Grundlage in der physisch- optischen Erkenntniss des Pigments im Bezug auf das sehbare und das Infrarote Licht. Nada Žiljak hat einen neuen Weg der Benutzung der Farben im malerischen Prozess geschafft. Es ist schwer diese Möglichkeit des verschiedenen, geheimnisvollen und verrückten zu stoppen.

Revolutionary research of Nada Žiljak
Before the appearance of Infraredart nobody dealt with the questioning of pigment (dye), as the basic painting material. Nada Žiljak has been experimenting with pigments since 2009. Guidelines for new painting opportunities were established with combination of knowledge about the diversity of pigments and its planned application to the canvas with a modern installation of cameras required for image integrity sensing.
Artist's research began with innovative possibilities to paint with differently structured color pigments, of which ones are readable only with apparatus for reading of the infrared waves, while others belong to the visible part of the solar spectrum.  In an original way she merged easel painting with contemporary video media. Picture is not only virtually freed of its borders, but it also crosses the boundaries of the possible and enters into the zone of the spectrum invisible to the human eye, not as a coincidence, or as evidence of physical facts, but as a selection of work in the area of infrared light.  Infraredart is manipulation of the area which until recently was artistically intact. Nada Žiljak paints using the knowledge about the expanded field of reading. Double picture that was created consciously relies on the modern technology, and improves the easel painting as a new medium of fantasy and ludism.

Direct "scanning" of intense blue-pinkish picture with a yellow punctum (hair on the nude figure) viewed through apparatus transfers into invisible, that is, intense colors gradually change into pinkish-purple-gray tones that eventually become gray and white with black drawing that does not exist at first sight without apparatus. In this transition from the eye view to viewing through the camera the first picture of nude figure, that is facing the audience, is changing into the second black and white picture of nude figure with turned shoulders and two masks. Within the picture there is something like an exchange of pseudo-day and night, in which coloristic abundance of the rainbow colors of the sun spectrum (eye visible) gradually disappears and turns into black-gray-pseudo-night. But the "diurnal" picture is not the "night” one! On the contrary, they are completely different even though they are physically present on the same acrylic surface of the canvas. This creative ludism is a provocation to our conceit that we can overmaster the picture with the naked eye. Oh no! The artist like a magician inscribes secret signs in the pictures, jokes with us and implies the evidence of some other worlds behind our world, new spaces and alternative views! Realizing the virtual, supported by the high technology, occurs outside of the screen, in the classical easel painting!

Revolutionary aspect of this study is based on a physical-optical knowledge about the measurability of pigment in relation to the visible and infrared light. Nada Žiljak revealed a new way of using colors (dyes) in the visualization of "time", that is, in the easel painting process. Once apprehended, this possibility of different, mysterious and ludic procedure can no longer be stopped.

Patrik Ervells latest collection is ironically titled “Software”ADIDAS ORIGINALS TUBULAR SHADOW. In the notes from the presentation, Ervell says he was interested in developing tension between nostalgia and sci-fi,NIKE ZOOM WINFLO 3 and even included 90s cyberpunk amongst his influences. Ervell developed this point of view by creating an imaginary software company called Idegen software systems. He then re-appropriated the company’AIR JORDAN XXXI MENs logo in several of the collection’s garments. Elsewhere,MBT TARIKI MEN mohair coats with oversized lapels made an appearance alongside mock neck tees,NIKE AIR JORDAN RETRO 5 police-inspired ribbed sweaters,MBT FORA GTX WOMEN flight bombers, and polyurethane leather coats. The setting was also suitably dystopian, and the resulting ambiance was something akin to if the creators of Deutschland 83 and Hackers met up and decided to create a collection… We mean that as a compliment.Yesterday afternoon,JORDAN CP3 IX MEN artist JR spent the day working on his latest collaborative piece with Daniel Arsham in Greenpoint,NIKE AIR MAX 90 Brooklyn,MBT KIMONDO GTX MEN NYC. Connecting the lines between art, architecture, dance and theater, Daniel Arsham has been known to subvert existing architectural structures in unconventional,NIKE CLASSIC CORTEZ NYLON playful ways; confusing and confounding the expectations of space and form.
