Contemporary media artist Claudia Schmitz (b. 1975) explores the limits and paradigms of media translation, both as a solo artist and through collaborative projects. Her work focuses on identity in virtual, expanded and real spaces, reactivity and interactivity, intermediality and transmediality, machine learning and artificial intelligence. She also examines issues of sustainability and synaesthetic experience and questions socio-urban structures and hegemonial perceptions. Tracing these boundaries, she develops spaces for transmedial experiences; pneumatic sculptures; multidimensional drawings. She also creates gustatory sculptures that develop their meaning on the viewer’s tongue.
Invisyllables is the first volume in her monograph, which is based on the concept of an open archive. The three volumes in the archive, entitled Moving Space, Moving Air, Moving Line each convey alternative phenomenological depictions while reciprocally integrating the others. Invisyllables is dedicated to Moving Space and shows current series of work and collaborations of this internationally acclaimed artist dedicated to James Lee Byars
