The Future of Light Art: Bernd Lintermann | Polarization as Information Carrier
The Future of Light Art
- 08.02.2018 to 09.02.2018
Light is a messenger from the universe. The arts are the messengers of light.
Everything we know, we know from light – that is the claim by astrophysics at least. One thing is clear: From quantum optics (»The Angular Momentum of Light«) to chronobiology, from nano-optics to photonics, a new frontier of scientific research on the nature of light is emerging. These options, which offer us new theories and practices of light, from biophysical chemistry to the lithosphere, also have an impact on artistic possibilities.
For this reason, renowned experts and institutions from the sciences and arts of light met at the symposium „The Future of Light Art“ at the ZKM | Karlsruhe from February 8 - 9th, 2018, to open up the new horizon of the light spectrum in an exchange of experiences.
Bernd Lintermann works as artist and scientist in the field of real time computer graphics with a strong focus on interactive and generative systems. The results of his research are applied in the scientific, creative and commercial context.
His body of work spans more than fifteen years and includes prints, interactive installations, projection environments and stage performances combining generative imagery and sound. His works have been exhibited in museums and festivals all over the world like the ICC InterCommunication Center in Tokyo, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, ISEA, DEAF and the Ars Electronica Festival. He worked with internationally renowned artists, like Jeffrey Shaw, Bill Viola, Peter Weibel and the »Wooster Group«, and created works for various display environments like the »CAVE™«, the »EVE Dome« and panoramic projection environments.
