  • originalcopy-Postdigital Strategies of Appropriation (2016 - 2018)
    Project, Principal Investigator: Michael Kargl, researcher(s): Franz Thalmair, Michael Kargl
    Copying has become ubiquitous yet invisible, both in the digital realm and in the analog world. In this research project we develop a working model that subjects the dichotomy of original and copy to a re-evaluation from a post-digital perspective and sheds light on this contradictory phenomenon. Our research focuses on the tensions between the supposed immateriality of digital technologies and their material manifestations by appropriating contemporary methods of copying and exposing them to artistic processes of transformation and translation.
  • Performative Materiality (2016 - 2019)
    Project, Principal Investigator: Michael Kargl
    The contemporary artistic work process involves a great deal of experimenting in order to arrive at the most suitable material to realize an idea. In this test phase one risks altering the complete work, its parameters, characteristics, and not least its final appearance. The objective of this dissertation project is to investigate and specify this process of material-based transformation with the aim of implementing these moments of change in the own artistic practice.
