Carolin Liebl and Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler

are an artist duo collaborating since 2012. Their works are often sculptural, partly kinetic, or robotic, also often installative, sometimes performative. They deal with the effects of technical developments on aesthetic and social aspects of human and non-human life. The medium - technology - is thereby both the carrier of social conventions and aesthetic, pictorial material. Atmospheres, smells, noises, room temperatures and material qualities of visual and haptic nature are just as important as programmed processes, algorithms and physical laws.
