Marius Watz is an artist working with visual abstrac­tion through gen­er­a­tive sys­tems. After aban­doning his studies in Computer Science, he pur­sued graphic design and media art in par­allel, becoming known for his hard-edged geo­metric com­po­si­tions and bold use of colors. After win­ning mul­tiple awards for his design work, he was fea­tured in I.D. Magazine’s “40 under 30” list in 2000.
In 2002 Watz quit design to focus on his art­work, exploring soft­ware processes as an aes­thetic medium. He has since exhib­ited at venues like Todaysart (The Hague), Künstlerhaus (Vienna), Melkweg (Amsterdam), ITAU Cultural (São Paulo) and Club Transmediale (Berlin). He con­tinues to explore the bound­aries of code as method, pro­ducing work that ranges from real­time soft­ware works to phys­ical output using dig­ital fab­ri­ca­tion technology.
In 2005 Watz founded Generator.x, a cura­to­rial plat­form that has resulted in a series of events related to gen­er­a­tive art and design, including a con­fer­ence, a trav­el­ling exhi­bi­tion and an audio­vi­sual con­cert tour. The most recent incar­na­tion, Generator.x 2.0, focused on dig­ital fab­ri­ca­tion and com­pu­ta­tional archi­tec­tural processes and was a part of the Club Transmediale 2008 festival.
Watz is a lec­turer at the Oslo School of Architecture and at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Department of design. He presents work­shops and lec­tures on com­pu­ta­tional aes­thetics, live cinema and dig­ital fab­ri­ca­tion. He also does audio­vi­sual per­for­mances with musi­cian Alexander Rishaug.
Marius Watz is rep­re­sented by [DAM]Berlin. He is cur­rently based in Oslo and New York.

Marius was briefly on Tumblr. I wish he was still around in these parts.

Look Inside: Yang Maoyuan

Monograph of Yang Maoyuan featuring a wide range of works produced between 1986 and 2006 including his recent sculpture series Look Inside. The series consists of marble reproductions of a group of ancient Greek and roman plaster statues commonly seen in fine arts supply stores. He removed the “classic” curly hair and beard in the original images of these models so that these famous statues all became consistently elliptical. He then flattened a certain outstanding facial feature of these marble head portraits, be it a nose, corners of the mouth or a chin. The series attracted a lot of attention and according to a German critic, the series is a critique of ‘the education methods of copying Western sculptures as well as the use Western aesthetics as prototypes of beauty

proof // of the reflective property

Short film which I think I can only describe as ‘Cyberpunk Sexuality’, a vision of what a Bladerunner harem would be.

This is definately NSFW and pornographic, but the aesthetic and musical atmosphere is great - video embedded below:

All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
