Overview



>> CV
The Viennese Georg Eckmayr is an artist, researcher and lecturer. He specialises in moving imagery, films and installations in space or in form of coded structures to produce a body of work, coming full circle despite its multi-formity.

>> Artist Statement
Where is the line between living and non-living? How speaks an entity, which has not come to existence yet?How do technocratic processes transform our human bodies?Basically: are we (still) human or is this a mere proposition?

>> Research
My research on digital culture is based on discourse analytic and artistic paractices. Besides theories of digital culture my approach incorporates theories of visual studies, philosophy of technology and epsitemology.
