In his GlogauAIR studio, artist, scholar and mathematician Ian Jehle (Canada) presents his project Robot Development Test. It is a collaboration with a team of international robotics students, who design a series of simple interactive robots that will create their own art.
Spanish artist Sònia Toneu’s works reconfigure the contemporary landscape by constructing, destroying and reconstructing images with coexistent sounds, lights, movements, artificial structures and natural energies.
Moving further, we find the work of painter Annelise Forster who is based in Australia. Her abstract representational paintings focus on creating energy and movement. Highly intuitive and often full bodied, her process of creating artworks takes place on large scale surfaces to fully immerse the viewer, thus creating a more intense experience.
Berlin-based, South Korean artist duo 25hr sailing constructs new notions of visibility and depth. Through collages, sound and video installations, they show a creation of various patterns that visualize the non-visual waves that are found within urban networks.
The work of Colombian artist Alvaro Rodríguez Badel moves between arts, film and technology. His project FACSIMILES explores and documents the architectural landscapes of different cities and places, underlined by the ideas of algorithmic art.
Canadian artist Michaela Kurimsky is currently working on a multidisciplinary thesis that maps the relationship identity shares with the senses, memory, objects, environment and others. Through personal and theoretical research, she is building an extensive archive that identifies and categorizes markers of character traits and related sensory atmosphere.
Elisa García de la Huerta from Chile works in photography, and performance art. She is interested in detailing the ways in which nature interweaves with different aspects of the modern self, exploring the intersection of capitalism, intimacy and nature.
The interest of the Australian artist, dancer and composer, Eitan Ritz, lies in bodies as sites of congealment and memory. Observing the micro gestures and sounds that are layered within the body, he aims to recast his personal experience and investigate feelings and beliefs that surround us as we live and play in the world.
New-York based artist, Pamela Guest, presents her animated installation 001 001 001 which explores the cognitive functions behind repetitive and obsessive thinking. It attempts to open up a dialogue about process, confusion and the ultimate search for a state of acceptance within excess.
Our Berlin Guest Residents Kovács/O’Doherty present their project, which combines the locations of abandoned railway lines in Berlin and Brandenburg as sites of infrastructural absence, of geographical traces, and of historical memory – with algorithmically generated audio of non-existent trains.
We hope that you will enjoy this virtual edition of GlogauAIR Open Studios in the same way that we have enjoyed this new challenge, as we pushed ourselves to work across borders to maintain artistic dialogue through digital interaction. This opportunity has kept us connected despite geographical difficulties thanks to the use of new digital technologies.
