Pink Twins' Parametronomicon installed in Van Abbemuseum, Netherlands

Pink Twins’ Parametronomicon (2016) is installed as a triptych version in an exhibition A Place Beyond Belief, presented by Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Netherlands, from November 12–20. As a part of the Light Festival GLOW, the exhibition discovers how light gives a strong sense of vision and introduces uncertainty to perception. The artworks are situated both in the front garden of the musem and in the galleries of the building.

Parametronomicon presents a model of parametric virtual life. A biomechanic organism moves, multiplies and regenerates in an elaborate series of convulsive movements. Its life spans from simple formations to inevitable apocalyptic visions of an over-the-top visual orgy. The triptych version expands the parametric concept further by presenting simultaneously three alternative evolutionary arcs on three screens. The three versions retain the same dramaturgy, but each follows a different route through the parametric space. Pink Twins keep true to their “more is more” ethos with this expanded installation version and provide an immersive and synesthetic experience.

Pink Twins is a duo of visual artists and electronic musicians, brothers Juha (b. 1978) and Vesa Vehviläinen (b. 1974), based in Helsinki, Finland. Active as Pink Twins since 1997, their videos work on the crossing of visual art and music. Live Pink Twins deliver improvised digital soundscapes, often combined with video screenings. Pink Twins have shown their works in exhibitions and festivals in all continents and performed audiovisual live shows through Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia.
