The Coordinator (Augmented Reality)
René Fadinger and Elisabeth Winkler
Curated by Lina Sunish Vincent
Time: 11:00 – 20:00
Venue: Fundacao Oriente
In this augmented reality installation, the artist wanted to point the three coordinates of 3-dimensional space, X/Y/Z, and expand the imagination of the recipient to multi-dimensionality.
Each end of the AR forms ran to a single point and led to infinity. The mirroring surface of the forms showed fractals of the environment and converted the 2-dimensional single plates of the shape, into perceptible space “on the other side” of the surface. When circuiting the object, the coordinates grew and shrank as a cause of perspective (size matters!) and gave the viewer a feeling of interacting with the form.
Elisabeth studied art history at the University of Vienna and specialized in the beginning of abstract art. She has done research fellowships in Paris, Washington and New York. For her postgraduate degree, she studied museology at the University for Applied Arts Vienna. She worked for several Galleries, such as Gallery Carinthia, Klagenfurt and Heike Curtze, Vienna and as a researcher at the Museum of Applied Arts Vienna, establishing the internet-application and the Design Showcases for the MAK Design-Info-Pool. Since 2012, she has been working as an independent art historian and curator. For about ten years she has also been working with René Fadinger on space-conceptions and site-specific installations.
Born 1974 in Vienna, Austria; grown up in Austria and Slovakia; lives and works in Carinthia, Austria and for several months in India. He studied at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Institute of Fine Arts, drawing and fine art print. Since 2012 he is teaching at the Independent Academy of Fine Arts Carinthia. René Fadinger’s approach is experimental and many-layered. He combines a variety of different techniques, builds three-dimensional objects, which could also be interpreted as architectural models; he paints, draws, makes experimental-videos, takes photographs and is recently working on augmented reality projects as well.
