Loop Wall

2016, temporary installation with copper paint, Künstlerhaus Galerie, Vienna

Screenshots of the artists’ frequent video conferences: Scott Betz (US), Richard Phillips (US), Mike Wegerer (AT) and Barbara Höller are the working material from which the visual lines are developed. The boundaries of the real rooms in Vienna and the transmitted virtual rooms from the USA are transferred to the wall in different bar widths with copper paint.

For the exhibition LOOP – BURNING QUESTIONS four artists conducted an experiment over several months in the course of which they continually introduced communication loops into the virtual realm in order to explore issues around the use of online media in a critical, innovative manner. The content of the conversations was derived from the participating artists’ interest in and approach to “BURNING QUESTIONS IN ART AND SOCIETY”.
