Zilvinas Kempinas, Lithuania – born artist, uses film tape as a material for his extensive installations. In “Colums” (2006) he stretches film tape as vertical ribbons from floor to ceiling. Architectural columns seem to be placed all over on first sight. At second sight the columns are revealed as sensitive membrans reacting to the minimalst breath of wind.
Another illusionary installation by Zilvinas Kempinas will be shown at  ‘Future Obscura‘ in the frame of upcomin` Transmediale in Berlin between February 2, 2010 and February 7, 2010. The exhibition hosts various approaches towards the complex condition of futurity through the lens of image-making.
