Artist Tao Sambolec's expanded conception of art emphasizes tactility, embodied experience, affect and perception in space, often involving displacements that heighten our sensory awareness. In this respect, his work finds good company with pioneering contemporary artists from Duchamp to Eliasson. A case in point is Virtual Mirror – Rain, which received Honorable Mention at Prix Ars Electronica. The artist has somehow managed to achieve what might at first seem impossible: rain falling from the skies outside the gallery triggers an equivalent amount of rain "falling up" inside the gallery!

[video src=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biKfLio3rWU height:210 align:left] In 2009, Brian Eno projected 77 Million Paintings onto the distinctive white sails of the the Sydney Opera House (1973), the architectural landmark designed by architect Jorn Utzon and designated by UNESCO as a world heritage site in 2007. Through the use of self-generating software, 300 images hand-drawn by renowned artist/composer Brian Eno were randomly cut-up, the pieces rearranged and realigned in an endless variety of ways, hence the title of the trancelike projection. Interwoven with the projected images was a soundtrack, creating “mesmerizing soundscape.” As Eno says, “by allowing ourselves to let go of the world that we have to be part of every day, and to surrender to another kind of world, we’re allowing imaginative processes to take place.”
