Artistic studies in between image and sculpture
Self initiated research project Premiered in February 2022 In continuous development since 2018
The project SCREENIC OBJECT is a series of self-initiated artistic studies to explore the aesthetic potential of screens at the intersection of image and sculpture. The viewer’s visual habits are challenged and the materiality of the objects is questioned. Various transparent and translucent objects are composed on “screenic” surfaces, and backlit with precisely fitting animations that extend the two-dimensional surface of the screen into depth. The resulting works are produced as limited editions and presented as wall objects in a gallery context.
The first edition is to be understood as a homage to basic geometric forms that have played a fundamental role in the historical development of digital screens: The lens, the prism, and the cube. In the course of the animation, they develop their own aesthetics and behaviors, referencing the intense historical research of the Screenization project.
