Weltraumgrafik (DE) – Helix

Event Introduction

Helix explores the interplay between two contrasting worlds: a rational, digital perspective often associated with the future, and a human, intuitive and emotional viewpoint often regarded nostalgically.

The installation begins in an abstract digital setting of grids, lines, and patterns, which initially presents itself as a provider of clarity and meaning. However, as the piece progresses, small instabilities reveal themselves, causing the lines of the grid to bend. We recognise that the system is fallible and incomplete in capturing the nuances of human nature and we end up in a state of beautiful disorder. 

“As artists active in the Digital Arts field, our intention is to highlight the ongoing conflict between trusting our personal perception of beauty and creation, and relying on formulas, numbers, programs, and the ever-expanding possibilities of technology. In Helix, we employ a dramaturgy that transitions from a purely abstract, digital, and rational perspective to a more tangible, more human and more magical form of experience”, state the artists.
