Marius Watz: ElectroPlastiques [Akron, OH]


Marius Watz: ElectroPlastiques :: Until April 23, 2008 :: Emily Davis Gallery, Folk Hall, Mary Schiller Myers School of Art, The University of Akron, Ohio.

Watz uses the computer to generate work which he describes as "a particular brand of visual hedonism, marked by colorful organic shapes and a 'more is more' attitude." Most of his works deal with drawing machines implemented in software, live visuals for music or large-scale projections. The exhibition will showcase a variety of Watz's generative work, including large scale projections of ElectroPlastiques #1 and #2, five rapid prototypes, large format printouts, and his Universal Digest Machine, which received an Honorary Mention at Ars Electronica -- the world's leading media arts festival in Linz, Austria.
