Saxony was the center of optics production in the former GDR, with companies such as Pentacon and Meyer-Görlitz serving as innovative leaders since the beginning of the fields of optics, lenses and photography. This high density of optics manufacturers in Saxony has also meant that other companies and institutions dealing with optics were able to establish themselves in Saxony (e.g. citizen-run star-observatories).
In Optiks, we will use original lenses produced by East German manufacturers as the primary building components and theoretical models for a mutli-part audio/visual installation drawing on our backgrounds as composers and multimedia artists.
San Mao is an artistic research and film project focusing on the work of the 20th century travel writer San Mao.
Along with the writer and interdisciplinary artist Autumn Tsai and visual artist and film director Mooni Perry, we are using environmental storytelling to retrace the physical geographies of San Mao's travels while exploring aspects of her work through fantasy, video games, and sound art.
CONCEPTUALIZATION AND CREATION
In addition to our own curatorial work, we assist other actors across the free arts scene in organizing projects and creating new concert programs. By drawing upon our diverse experiences in management, design and multimedia arts, we help to connect the strands to bring projects to reality.
