Event description

Description


Where do light, data and canvas meet? Combining algorithmic art, with traditional art forms, brainwave data with light refractions, artists Stuart F. Batchelor and Oliver Gingrich explore intersections between traditional art forms and intelligent artistic design. The exhibition will feature brainwave projections and light refractions by Oliver Gingrich as well as video and still generative paintings by Stuart F. Batchelor, as a trajectory of past, present and future of alternate and hybrid media art practices.


Presented at the Association for Cultural Advancement in the Visual Arts (ACAVA)’s Maxilla Space in Notting Hill, the exhibition will be hosted by FLUX Events - an artist-led platform for Media Arts focusing on contemporary media art practices created right now in the UK. FLUX events will host an evening of discussions around the diverse practices presented by Batchelor and Gingrich in “Intelligent Matter”.


Intelligent Matter runs from 23th of May to 26th of May 2019

FLUX Events Studio Visit: “Intelligent Matter” 24th of May


Oliver Gingrich is a media artist based in Notting Hill, working with brainwaves, holographic projection and light art. Born in Vienna, Living in London, the artist displays across a range of different media, light art, digital art, photography, acryl on canvas, and holographic projection. With the collective Analema Group, the use of high-end technology results in immersive experiences for their audiences. In his light art pieces, the artists concentrates on inherent qualities of light as an artistic tool for expression. His practices include brainwave representations, holographic displays as well as traditional fine art forms such as painting and photography.


Oliver Gingrich completed his doctorate in Digital Media at the Centre for Digital Entertainment and is now practice-based researcher at the National Centre for Computer Animation at Bournemouth University. Oliver Gingrich is co-founder of FLUX Events.


Stuart Faromarz Batchelor is a fine artist and software engineer who combines oil painting with graphics programming, showcasing a beautiful union between traditional and programmatic art techniques.“Painting with code and coding with paint”. Formerly an interactive developer at CG film and digital installation company Framestore, Stuart’s current work focuses on making programming a physical process - escaping the dulling confines of the computer screen and rejecting its amputation of our senses - by drawing on alla prima and abstract expressionist practices.


Rebelling against the boundaries of the technology we are so readily given, Stuart Batchelor programs his own systems centered around this untapped human capability. His signature practice combines both the artist’s hand and the computer’s generative simulations; working between coding and painting in the same session, utilizing enactive, iconic and symbolic modes of understanding, uniting the painter’s observational eye and the algorist’s design logic.
