AV4D (2009)

self-developed toolset for realtime audiovisual manipulations

integration of software (like VRML/X3D browser, VJ software) and hardware - cameras, video mixers and MIDI controllers) as interactive platform for immersive multimedia performances and 3D-Vj'ing.


Parallel[land]scapes (2004-2006)

Interactive installation - 3-D stereoscopic projection and surround sound.

Synthetic landscape-like scenes are being generated form a large database of images, video sequences and other geo-encoded information. The work emphasizes the idea about multi-layered structure of metaphysical timespace. Various hypotheses, propagating existence of "parallel universes", explain that all the potential variations about any situation, as well as past, present and future events take place simultaneously and influence our actuality. In the technologically mediated world, the visible reality, artificially made maps and human inner experience of space diffuses into a paradoxical composite image.



Tactical Cartography Command Centre (2004)

Multi-screen interactive installation, that consists of a space with several display areas, presenting several locative media projects and free GIS applications . The mock military-style command-and-control center engages people in a technically stimulating environment to discover "locative space", depicting the relationship between the wireless mapping technologies on offer and issues of surveillance and control.

Produced together with Marc Tuters.
Colaborators: Karlis Kalnins, Christian Nold, Luka Frelih

Big Brotherhood Browser (2001-2004/2005)

Fictional scenario about a country, where all it's citizens since birth get implanted personal identity chip and permanently replicate many of their sensory experiences to governmental, public and private networks. Several levels of shared privacy create multiple presences, allowing network clients eg. to locate someone the city or "visit" a distant party with "remote eyes" (implant cameras), and "remote ears" (microphones) weared by "agents". The installation presents this scenario as an interactive story, where the visitor encounters something like a "navigation console" for the "Big Brotherhood Browser" where one can have a glimpse into various modelled situations and experience that through computer-synthesized stereoscopic (3D) image and surround sound.

Private Multi-verse Perception
(2002-2003)
Interactive 'meta-molecules' of 'audiovisual space and time'


VR installation / VR environment as multimedia performance
(stereoscopic projection, 3D sound, interactivity) The ‘visual title' +≈× 'hints' to several rather abstract metaphysic notions. Theme: invisible, but imaginary density ‘empty' (surrounding) space, constituted by metaphysical code.

[   ]=:+: (*1998)

Title: [  ]=:+:

Work idea: artwork as imaginary 'perpetuum mobile'. Chain from the initial idea of the work, its realisation in artistic form, is 'embodiment' in projection and sound, powered by electroenergy and the money of tax-payers, then the visitors (the taxt payers) can give their feedback to the artist (idea releaser). The visual form illustrates the travel through this chain.



->+ (1999 / unrealised / simulation VIDEO (RealMedia) )

The work title ->+ can be interrpreted in several ways, eg. 'Minus larger as plus' or 'development towards the plus". Video installation, projected on 3 walls, creating illusion of filled space.

one of my eraliest (1996) Internet projects: Browser-on-top-of-Browser - Webseite "new browser", where one could enter an URL and the content of the website got modified on-fly. Die zweite Funktion ersetzt quasi einen Suchrobot, durch Eingabe irgendeines Textes erfolgt die Suche gemäß der Interpretation und dehendes in der Datenbank. Infolge von Zeitmangel und technischen Problemen  leuft dieses Programmm nur als Demoversion (seid ArsElectronica’97) vor .
