"Angewandte Atlas"

Exhibition Dates: 21 June - 4 July 2023

Opening: 20 July 2023

The University of Applied Arts Vienna is an institution of diversity; being one of the first academies that female students were able to study, having 1700 students from 70 countries in 2021.

With this project, we aim to demonstrate the demography of Angewandte in years focusing on the gender and geography of students. It will emphasize the growing diversity inside the community with the method of digitizing the archive and statistics, visualization of the data and turning it into an atlas of the cultural diversity of Angewandte.

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.
