2014 Theme: Velocity

Change. At speed. Everywhere.









image: NASA & ASF (2000) Lambert Glacier Velocity Map (asf.alaska.edu)

The rushing up of the earth from below as we leap into the unknown is a strong pervasive force.The comings and goings of objects, the rhizomatic fever of life - of memories and of perception - is the stuff of both nature and the machine but also the stuff of change - of a compelling need to move forward, at pace. Since the millennium we have been moving away in linear time from the trauma of the 20th century, history accumulating behind us as we hurtle towards an undefined future.Yet there also seems to be a reductive velocity at work, the future appears to be expanding only in our mind’s eye - in the stories we tell ourselves, in the frames of the cinematic moment and the pixels of our most fantastic dreaming. If we stand still long enough the hyper-reality becomes apparent. Information is expanding at an exponential rate – images, sound and text – authoring a new present-future space of mobility, of interconnectedness and most of all of rapid accelerating change. Equal parts chaos and perfection – of truth and of fiction - a dark and light exposure.
It is the making of us, this velocity of things. It is both our return to Earth and our mastery of its physics. Our identity and our collective history is fast becoming a vast data repository of machine vision - a rapid prototyping of our future selves.Financial transactions, personal communications, intimate moments exist inside this simulation of machine speed.Artificial intelligence observes, correlates, measures and makes split second decisions on our behalf.Notions of surveillance, fears for our privacy, the dilution of our identity and the voyeuristic connotations of relational databases make up the machine’s vision of us and our world. Can we keep apace of these algorithmic patterns? Can we author new vistas new dreamscapes new directions?
Meanwhile history keeps up a steady persistent pace: the image loops, the velocity increases and the hyper-real resumes its seductive play.

DEADplanetFINE* 
An Uber-Wahnsinn paranoid trembling project 

DEADplanetFINE*, is a web 1.0 retro-renaissance remixology project consisting of looped animated mouseover-gif-film-crawls.

DEADplanetFINE*, are animated acid humorous social-commentary-line-drawings interwoven with abstract blink-scrolls, that reflect on the nightmarish state of the world.The project touches issues of war, race, rape, violence, loneliness, torture, sexism, porn, gadgetism, obsenity, power, greed, intoxication, pollution and the human folly in general.
Depending on the movement of the mouse the animations take on various speeds and directions of motion.

DEADplanetFINE*, uses a poly-linguistic-sound-blur-drone. The languages are used for their phonetics and not for the meaning of the words. 

DEADplanetFINE* attempts to expose, in a funny way, the crazy world we live in, which seems to have followed the same principle over the past aeons, which is the perpetual reoccurrence of the same.

Exhibition announcement SKINS at Gallery 60six in San Francisco, Oct.4 - Nov.1, 2014


    Sk-Bk acrylic on collage, 69" x 64", 2013




acrylic paintings on collage


Jürgen Trautwein is an interdisciplinary artist working in a variety of mediums including new media, hypertext works, temporary inferences, installations, painting, drawing, and photography. His process oriented practice often brings attention to notions of time and duration, where the works themselves become manifestations of immediate, everyday and present experience.


“Skins” presents Trautwein’s recent body of monochromatic acrylic paintings, constructed on geometrically ordered collages on letter-sized paper. The collages are made from ‘time-sheets,’ a collection of unwanted drawings, paintings, prints, sketches, notes, flyers, form-letters. These materials are created and saved by the artist over time, the personal content of which spans about 20 years. Trautwein joins together these time sheets, which he works on from both sides, in an intuitive process which allows for accidental fusions of various moments in time, and preserves the provisional nature of the recycled elements. Trautwein consolidates several years of information, scattered experiences and thoughts into physical objects which transcend the notion of content, and confront the viewer in an immediate, material and bodily mode.
