ARS ELECTRONICA: INTERACTING ART EXHIBITION

7-12th of September 2016, Initiative Raumschiff, Linz, Austria

I was fortunate to be invited to participate in a collaborate exhibition during Ars Electronica festival in Linz, Austria. A collaboration between 15 diverse artists who worked in Initiative Raumschiff for one week to bridge together our unique interactive projects to become an experimental yet unified experience.

‘A play on artworks, works in process and working things out by doing – together. Through negotiation, juxtaposition, and re-contextualization, various works and non-works are woven into an interface for the audience, built through interactive, textual and performative processes. The project uses the medium of interaction in a way that allows the pieces to leave the traditional space of artistic discourse and to occupy instead the space of dialogue’.

With Stella Baraklianou, Yen Tzu Chang & Yoh Morishita, Maria Czernohorszky, Isidora Ficovic, Laura Jade, Mary Maggic, Francesco Nordio, Patrick Schabus, Henning Schulze, Julio Sosa, Federico Tasso.

A project by
Davide Bevilacqua, Sam Bunn, and Sewal Six.
