SPACE/Goethe artist 2017-2018: Paul Wiersbinski
Paul Wiersbinski´s often constructs technical prototypes, which are tried out by the public and go through various phases of continuous development. For this commission, he will further develop an in-suite presentation at the location of the residency and use it as a set for a new video installation. It consists of an interactive scenario with 3D glasses and wireless surveillance cameras. These applications are used by the audience in order to enter a hybrid space, mixing haptic and virtual reality, adding a second layer to the public space. His work has been presented in screenings, lectures, and exhibitions at a.o. ZKM (Karlsruhe), Club Transmediale (Berlin), NURTUREart (New York City), Palais de Tokyo (Paris) and the MOCA Taiwan (Taipei).
