Carolin Liebl and Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler

The artists Carolin Liebl and Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler have been creating technology-based artworks together since 2012. Incorporating elements of sculpture, kinetics, robotics and installation, their works explore the impact of technical developments on the aesthetic and social aspects of life. Their medium - technology - is both a carrier of social convention and a pictorial material. Material qualities of visual and haptic nature are just as important as programmed processes, algorithms and physical laws.

RE:PLACES, 2021

In the robot installation RE:PLACES, plastic waste is transformed into anamorphic sculptures before the visitors' eyes. The visual and haptic experiences enable an intuitive and aesthetic approach to the thematic complex around plastic and its problematic use.
