We dematerialise images and send them per electromagnetic waves to the ether.
In the Grid Museum's open system, images hang neither higher nor lower, but it is about the dissolution of spaces as they were. A permeable space plays on the unlimited electromagnetic space with a dissolved image gallery. Here, in the space without walls and floors, a different transfer of images and information takes place via radio waves into the electromagnetic space on a DIY basis. A collection of images moves through the open and boundless space: because radio waves penetrate walls, overcome borders, spread out into space. We thus use non-protocol parallel communication structures and information systems. And we understand this as an artistic and political act and as a reference to a new digital intellect that has to set its reference points as far outside as possible.
The work was shown in the summer of 2021 at electropixel 11 at Plateforme Intermédia in Nantes/F, as part of the STWST and APO33 Exchanges.
STWST No Content Dptm. is Franz Xaver plus STWST for this project, featuring the Media Camper of Karel Dudesek and Marcus Kabele. The work is directly related to STWST Infolab and Donautics. The image content is subordinate, but comes from STWST theory and research Infolab, Quasikunst and the No Content Dptm.
