[DAM] Berlin Presents "Beyond the Screen"
BERLIN, GERMANY.- [DAM] Berlin presents "Beyond the Screen", works from Commonwealth, UK, Leander Herzog,CH, Jared Tarbell, US, Theverymany, US, Marius Watz, NO and other participants of Generator.x 2.0 workshop. In Cooperation with club transmediale and Marius Watz.

Digitally fabricated sculptures seem to be a contradiction in terms, still the computer is mainly a medium for a two-dimensional space. The exhibition ”Beyond the screen“ reveals unexpected possibilities: sculptures that are created on a computer as three-dimensional CAD-files and are converted into real objects via a laser technique called “digital fabricator”. This kind of technique enables artists to translate precisely digitally constructed highly complex and fragile creations. The range of materials is wide - synthetic materials, cardboard, ceramic, plaster etc - and so are the different techniques: milling, building up, dismantling, forming.

The workshop of Club transmediale is dedicated to this new highly interesting technique, already used in industry in the fields of medicine and design to develop individual and precise plastic forms of products and opens up huge potential possibilities for three-dimensional works in digital art.

The exhibition offers a forum to this art form and shows apart from the results of the workshop for “fabbing” – digital fabrication – art works created beforehand which are representative of that technique and mark established positions: Works of Marius Watz, who has initiated and run the workshop of Club transmediale, and who has been working intensively on the possibilities offered through fabbing. The Norwegian artist is known for his colourful organic software art works and prints as well as for large projections and is very actively working on the field of Net Art. A contract work for the Norwegian government was shown for two years on their homepage. In 2005 he founded an Internet platform for digital art and design.

The design studios Commonwealth, New York, and Theverymany, France, already use fabbing in their daily work for custom orientated design solutions apart from mass productions. They have also realized exhibition projects on that subject f. e. in New York. Apart from architects also in the digital art scene well established artists such as Holger Lippmann are participating at the workshop attracted by the creative possibilities that this technology might offer in the future and voluntary prepared to experiment with a new medium. The results can be awaited full of suspense.
