  [COSIC / ROCH / WEISER. Artists in Residence]

Verein Medienturm
Großmarktstraße 8b, A-8020 Graz

In the framework of our "Artist in Residence"-program AIR Herwig Weiser and Axel Roch present their work created for the Kunstverein Medienturm. A preview gives an impression of Vuk Cosics' work - the future artist in residence.
Herwig Weiser presented the mobile control-interface zgomobil, which can be extended according to various experiment and approach possibilities. The installation is based on an electromagnetic grid, which allows visual and sound patterns, triggered by user defined codes. With great pleasure we wish to announce that Herwig Weiser was awarded the Nam June Paik price 2002, which is the highest endowed decoration for media art in the German-speaking area.
The Cologne based media artist Axel Roch presents the installation "../voyeur en survol". Through the play of surface, hissing and shape the observers invent different faces on the mirror. The perceived and drawn looks let the installation oscillate between subject and object, viewer and system. Each sighting manifests itself as experiment of the ephemeral.
Finally Vuk Cosic shows his piece "History of Art for Airports".
