We hacked Kunsthalle Wien

Guerilla Art Performance addressed to Nicolaus Schafhausen

17. 05.14 – Our guerrilla performance “Attention Economy 2″ was a public statement addressed to Kunsthalle Wien.

It was conceived as a response to their exhibition “Attention Economy”, which was clearly a direct imitation of the artistic concept of our poster campaign.
The current copycat concept/project “Attention Economy” (Kunsthalle Wien) was presented a few months after our public space project. This prompted us to perform our “Attention Economy 2,” which questions art world hierarchies, exceeding a critical limit, “beyond the rules of the game”.

PARKFAIR develops new approaches, artistic spaces in the time of cultural and entertainment industries and acts as an interface between private and public space!

PARKFAIR provides  diversity, more artistic perspectives during the  main Artfair in Vienna and consolidates the Austrian art position in international context.

At the same time as Viennafair (11th – 15th of May 2011) the new PARKFAIR  took place on the parking deck of the Stadion Center in Vienna. The exhibition thematic focus was ENTARTAINER “The Artist as an Entertainer”. 32 well-known and emerging contemporary Artists, such as Brigitte Kowanz, Franz Graf, Thomas Feuerstein, Lori Hersberger were showing site-specific interventions, installations, performances, video and media art for 3 days. The exhibition’s aim was to deliver an innovative Austrian contemporary art discourse, which reflects economic, social and environmental responsibility and acts as an interface between private and public space! The project of the art Association VATNC (Visible Audible Tangible Network Cloud) is independent and designed by artists for artists.

The Conveyor Belt Experiment @ ARS ELECTRONICA 2006

Sound-Design & Programming

Idea: Christopher Rhomberg & Tobias Zucalli   Sound-Design: David Gottschalk

In the Conveyor Belt Experiment humans are reduced to modules – parts of a machine – by a computer. Human loses control over his muscles to the computer via electric muscle stimulation. He becomes a slave to the system he himself had created. For detailed information visit www.maschine-mensch.net

Paths of music

An archive of video documentations, which can be experienced in the form of in real-time generated music and video compositions. The underlying video are documentations of musicians making their daily routes through the city of Vienna. These videos provide the timing and content – the video is analyzed and forms the basis of the result for further processing and generation of music. Also striking rhythmic motifs are taken from the underlying soundtrack. Parameters such as brightness, color, volume, pitch, form the input for the algorithm. The output of the application is a remix of the original video, with emerging music and soundscapes, generated on the basis of algorithms.
