The group exhibition Obsessive Sensing features works which as their basis look at the programming of the world as an expression of artistic research.
The participating artists aim to “sense” with the help of complex systems and thus to reimagine how we perceive the world.
How do we go about sensing that which we cannot perceive? This is reflected in the idea of technical images, as described by Vilém Flusser – the preparation of the information which we cannot perceive for our senses.
“This can be achieved neither with hands nor with eyes nor with fingers, for these elements are neither graspable, nor are they visible. For this reason, apparatuses must be developed that grasp the ungraspable, visualize the invisible, and conceptualize the inconceivable.” (Vilém Flusser, Into the Universe of Technical Images)
