Artist Talk with Simon Ingram
Wed, January 10, 2018 5 pm CET, Talk

In the framework of »Open Codes« exhibition Simon Ingram will talk about the background of his latest »Radio Painting Station« installation, entitled »Looking for the Waterhole«, on view at ZKM_Subraum from December 15, 2017 until January 14, 2018. 

This work seeks to rephrase the practice of abstraction and the production of abstract images as a contemporary one by developing Vilém Flusser’s notion of the technical image. This is the non-narrative composition arising in response to increased abstraction, big data and technical change in human culture. In Flusser’s telling, technical images are made from devices that can see what we cannot see, experience what we cannot experience, able to bring together invisible quanta, such as photons and electrons and bits/bytes of information as images.

Please note: The artist talk will be held in English.
