What if pixels could be spread like paint?
Lorenz Potthast shared part of his research in his talk “Screenization – On the diffusion of digital screens” at the IBSIC – Image Beyond the Screen International Conference.
The project combines a detailed examination of the historic development of screens and theoretical thoughts about the essence of screenic properties with two experimental infrastructures to make speculations about screens of the future tangible.
We are very happy to be present on two occasions at this years Video Mapping Festival in Lille, France!
On Thursday 10th March at 16:15 our very own Lorenz Potthast will give a talk “Screenization – On the diffusion of digital screens” at the IBSIC – Image Beyond the Screen International Conference, and on Saturday we have our fingers crossed because our project “BE\LONGING” is nominated for a Video Mapping Award.
Looking forward to meet old friends and new faces and some interesting conversations and exchange 😉

In a very successful year for our projection sculpture RADIX, we traveled around the globe and hosted exhibitions in Tokyo, Berlin, Vienna and Potsdam.

The exhibitions we attended are:
“DIGITAL#ER S#CHOC#K” – Goethe Institut, Tokio (13.02.2018)
“UNDER THE RADAR” – Museumsquartier, Wien (24.05.2018)
“48H NEUKÖLLN” – Kindl Kesselhaus, Berlin (22.06.2018)
“ART CAMP” – Villa Francke, Potsdam (26.10.2018)
Xenorama is currently in the studio of the sculpturist Parul Thacker, based in Mumbai, India. Parul specialises in capturing unprecedented realms between our perceptional grid in form of hypertangible plastic pieces. These serve as a foundation for projected portraits of indigenous people from the Himalayas and are set into motion by dropping a stone into a large basin. Tucked into ambiences of respective mountain ranges, audiovisual caustics and embers of resin, the encounter with distant souls is brought to life in individual fashion. One at a time.
To be exhibited and experienced in Calcutta, West Bengal.
