Institutional Presentation Statement n.a.
- Martin Fröhlich (CH) studied Mechanical engineering and Media art at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. His work oscillates between arts and technology, and ranges from computer animations to interactive art spaces, from experimental digital music interfaces to video mapping software, to spatial augmented reality toolsets. His recent works include the “Mossprinter” (2011), a mechatronic device that prints moss onto house walls; “MeshWarpServer” (2012), a versatile and open source video mapping software frequently used by video artists around the world; the “IMPOD” (2013), short for Impersonating Overhead Display, a helmet with a rotating strip of LEDs that creates a cylindrical screen around the wearers head; or the kinetic work “Between Time and Space” (2015), a mechanical device using rubber bands to create the illusion of a rotating cube. He conceptualizes his artworks or inventions as tools to alter the audience mode of perception and reflection. Currently he has the operative lead for the Immersive Arts Space at the University of Arts in Zürich.
