„Halbzeug describes a range of styrofoam modules whose functional design defines them as everyday objects. In the realm of art, styrofoam often serves as a preliminary material for sculptures and large-scale objects. While Halbzeug references this context, its practical bias and situational use moves it beyond any arts-related connotations. Halbzeug takes traditional handicraft and transposes it to the present to express the idea of the ornament with a very contemporary material.“
This piece reminds me of Pablo Valbuenas Augmented Sculpture wich has been shown at Ars Electronica this year. It’s a very interesting development of getting rid of the stupid rectangle we looking at all day. 😉
Behind the screens. 50 years of computer art.
Online, interactive and endless ones and zeroes in algorithms and coding; digital art, in all its forms and designs, is occupying an increasingly important place. And not only that. The growth and developments in the field of digital art also force us to think about the definition and meaning of concepts such as ‚unique‘ and ‚authentic‘. With more than 50 works by 29 artists, the group exhibition Behind the screens – 50 years of computer art shows the various forms of digital art and the developments from the 1970s to the present. A large part of the works of art in this exhibition come from a private collection from Apeldoorn, which includes a number of iconic works of art and gives an impression of the development of digital art.
