Performing Data - Fleischmann & Strauss (2011)

Exhibition, Conference, Book – Laznia CCA, Gdansk, Poland

Liquid Views - the Virtual Mirror of Narciss

Exhibition 15.04. – 26.06.2011

Performing Data is a review of Fleischmann and Strauss´ body of work from Virtual Reality (Home of the Brain, HoB Video), up to Mixed Reality (Murmuring Fields, MF Experiments Video, Mixed Reality Archive or Energie-Passagen), from Fluid (Liquid Views) to Rigid (Rigid Waves, RW Video) up to Floating Interface (Media Flow).

Monika Fleischmann and Wolfgang Strauss from the Fraunhofer Research show an intersection of the body and immaterial digital data. From Body Space (Virtual Striptease) to Knowledge Space (Semantic Map): Interactivity as an extension of touch is a central strategy of their work – interactivity with its complex relationship to reality, re-presentation and presence.

The body as interface and intersections to the disembodied digital information. Immersion in data flow causes productive moments of disturbance and suspension, and consequently – a feeling of real physical presence.

The Exhibition Performing Data includes works from the early 1990s, when the artists/scientists were co-founders of the ART+COM collective in 1987/88 in Berlin. Since 1992 they developed their work as research artists at KHM and GMD – the German National Research Center for Information Technology, since 1997 as directors of the Media Art & Research Studies (MARS) department and since 2001 at Fraunhofer Society, in the Institute for Media Communication (IMK) and for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) in Sankt Augustin, Germany.

About Fleischmann & Strauss

German artists and scientists, Monika Fleischmann & Wolfgang Strauss, are considered pioneers of interactive media art. Since the very beginning of their artistic and scientific activity they have used computer both as a tool and medium. Their experimental research focuses on the interactivity in art and knowledge environment, as well as on the expanded and networked space used as interface. Learning new things from old things is one of the working methods applied to new media that they have invented for their use. Their ideas concerning visual presentation of information and computer-oriented models of navigation and dialogue have for twenty years now influenced the development of modern technoculture in the context of interactivity. The work of Monika Fleischmann & Wolfgang Strauss has earned them a Golden Nica of Prix Ars Electronica and numerous other honorary awards, and is constantly archived by ZKM | Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany.
