Curriculum Vitae
The Viennese Georg Eckmayr is a multidisciplinary artist, researcher and lecturer. He studied digital art at the class of Peter Weibel under whose supervision he also completed and defended his doctoral thesis on technical images. 

→ Art: My art (media installations & pure digital work), operates with contrasts and ambivalences, with contradiction as a productive force. The focus of my work lies on the entanglement of physical and machine-based realms and its effects on social & identity practices. In most of my works my aesthetic gestures are embedded in scientific & research approaches.
→ Research: My research focus is on digital culture and knowledge systems and the digital operative space.

Artworks

surfaces – (songs of algorithm)

→ Networked Screen Sculptures
■ A modular, scale-able monument for mobiles, desktop, or large scale white-cube settings. Various audio-visuals bundled via one smart contract into a modular installation / 2023

My networked sculpture surfaces - songs of algorithm is an example of an artwork which is not designed for a specific viewing situation. It is adaptive and scale-able and can be shown within white cube settings but also in any social gathering as long as at least two devices (and the audiovisuals) are present.
