Banz & Bowinkel
Friedemann Banz and Giulia Bowinkel explore the blurred lines between real and virtual space. Their work is based on the notion that the virtual world is not the domain of simulated reality but rather its counterpart, in which computers – as an unconscious force – subject the meaning of our society to a new order.
For Banz & Bowinkel, we already live in a semi-virtual environment in which almost everything is pre-calculated and carried out by computers. The artist duo uses computers resolutely as both tools and as an interactive interface where artworks can be created and presented.
