“E-volve brings together computer generated artworks of different artists, which are software based and develop continuously or come as an animation created by the artist. The artworks are presented as wall objects, on screens or as projections. The exhibition brings together the conceptual position of Manfred Mohr with his series “Klangfarben” and the minimalism of C. E. B. Reas with the artificial life-forms of the English couple boredomresearch. Eelco Brand presents a new two-channel animation. Marius Watz uses his software in combination with modern music of the Norwegian composer Rishaug to create a tapestry of light.” Text source: [DAM]Cologne

Technology & Material
lthough OBG001 uses modelling techniques similar to those used by scientists, instead of aiming to understand something existing, we hope to build something new of intrigue and beauty. OBG001 is a biosphere; a close system like the earth taking only energy as its input other than that nothing enters or leaves. As such there is no human interaction with the system. The work is built using computer technology to execute the rules that cause the system to behave in its unique way and not in order to make it respond in any form to any external forces.
