Twitching and Writhing Curious Figures
Carolin Liebl (b. Lichtenfels, 1989; lives and works in Offenbach/Main) and Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler (b. Gießen, 1987; lives and works in Offenbach/Main) have worked together since 2012. The artist duo's technology-based installations and sculptures combine elements of kinetics and robotics in order to probe the impact of technological development on the aesthetic and social aspects of human and non-human life. The visual and tactile qualities of their materials are key, as are the kinetic sculptures' programmed processes and algorithms. Harnessing technology as both a vehicle of social conventions and a sculptural material, their works are spellbinding.
The publication hello world celebrates ten years of collaboration of the artist duo and presents an extensive cross-section of the duo's output of the past years. With an introduction by Agnieszka Kubicka-Dzieduszycka, curator at WRO Art Center, Wroclaw, and essays by the author and artist Thomas Georg Blank as well as digital art curator Lucia Longhi
