Leap Second Festival 2016- "Just a sec" - an untimely intervention
Saturday New Year's Eve Dec 31 2016 23:59:60 and lasts one second until Jan 1 2017 00:00:00 (UTC).
Check what UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) is at your location:https://www.timeanddate.com/time/leapseconds.html

During the leap second all the works in the festival are exhibited, executed, performed.
This year we've emphasized collaborative, experimental, project-based works that in various ways embed the leap second idea and function as leap second events in themselves.
The festival is a distributed, decentralized event coordinated on the net.
There are around 140 participants in the festival, including the residency program.

Art, new technology and precarity raise some issues which the leap second can exemplify and realize.
The leap second adjustment is a consequence of technology, practically immaterial, virtual, untimely - outside of time so to say - awkward, unsuitable and is a glitch or a wobble on global scale in earth's rotation and in electronic time systems (OSs). In the same way, the festival is scalable from extremely big to extremely small, somehow mirroring the extension of technology. It's also a metaphor for the precarity caused by technology. And it's questioning its own existence: A leap second is an extra second between :59 and :00 that is left invisible on our watches and most computer systems. It's usually faked using one of three glitchy processes - repeat, freeze, smear - to adjust clock-time. And finally. with its awkward, impossible format, the focus of the festival could very well be exactly that: a questioning of art and its appearance, materiality, objecthood, to tie onto traditions of conceptual and postconceptual art, net art, ao. and lead to an exploration of media in search of itself (as an 'appearing' form, or questioning its form). A festival or non-event like this could bring these questions to the front as its main character or theme.

Jürgen Trautwein OFL: Old Family Linen and the Endurance of Folds
OFL is Jürgen Trautwein’s series of predominantly reversible paintings on antique family linen, some pieces up to 150 years old. The series is part of his evolving “traces of times past” multidisciplinary art project using found materials.
The folds and creases and quiet details become the structural base for monochrome paintings punctuated minimally with traces of seams, hand embroidered monograms, cut edges and buckled or wrinkled areas. In some pieces the artist uses a process of transferring paint off of plastic sheeting under the painting on the floor of his studio. His process of painting on plastic from his 2015 “Sister Seven” series is given a new life within this process of transferring paint randomly off plastic, and we also see a few multi-colored pieces echoing the “Topography” series where his paintings on vellum were wrinkled up, letting paint pool randomly into complex textures and satellite map-like patterns.
Trautwein’s OFL paintings are quiet, meditative, detached from an intentional outcome and expansive in their bestowal of the process of change.
