UPCOMING exhibition

EPHEMERAL COMPANIONS

Ephemeral Companions

31 May - 15 June 2024 / Opening: May 31rd

Exhibition by Anna Lerchbaumer + Rafael Lippuner

Humankind´s journey with technology has been nothing short of transformational. The exhibition seeks to explore and document their relationship, as far back as we can imagine and as close as it has grown since. 

Beginning with the birth of rudimentary tools, “Ephemeral Companions” meticulously trace the path of technological marvels that have become an integral part of our daily lives. It explores the cultural, social, and psychological dimensions of our interactions with these tools, analyzing how they both connect and sometimes distance us. It encourages us to reflect on the impact of technology on our relationships, from the intimacy of personal relations to the larger scale of global communities. Both artists ask us to imagine these relationships' future and call for a responsible and mindful use of the tools that shape our world.

Node #00: "Transitions"

6-13 April 2023

The exhibition introduced a collection of works created employing coding to embrace the intersection of art and forms. 4 artists who come from different disciplines yet use code in their works were brought together in order to accentuate the lyrical relation of body, motion, vitality and transitional forms. 

Vesna Petresin’s video work UnFold_Gold ​​aligns how the body and emotions adapt to the passage of time through processes, rhythms and repetitions. In Marhu & A*S*Y*S “Hooked”, energy meets the movements of the body and transpasses through glitches.

While two video shows the obvious Copy Planet Foundation and Ozan Turkkan’s works confronting to observe the abstract. “Coded Feelings” transmutes the inherent complexities of existence into poetic digital forms. Turkkan’s “arura” AV Installation is focusing on transitional forms in nature and the variability of this geometry over time. “arura” and “Coded Feelings” are also presented as VR Installations for an immersive experience. 

A workshop was organised as an introduction to how to use code for creative and experimental projects. The exhibition has been curated by NODE Media Lab.
