The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology expands scientific content through interdisciplinary, artistic interventions. ARTTEC features interfaces of art, technology and science through its current exhibition "Energy" by Artist-in-Residence Judith Fegerl. The Viennese artist dedicates her work to research on surface-transforming processes.
Judith Fegerl features physical, chemical and electrical processes through her sculptures. The artist developed a vivid procedure to to visualize energy through electric power, which becomes visible in the used objects.
Her installation and first work "reservoir", published in 2010, can be seen for the first time in Vienna. The art work consists of twelve plates made of copper and twelve plates made of aluminium, placed in pairs in glas glascontainers and exposed to an electronic treatment with salt water. Based on the principle of a battery, the exposed energy creates visual structural changes, which can be interpreted in terms of time, coincidence and emergence.
The first ARTTEC exhibition drew focus on the topic "Decleration" (November 2018 to June 2019).
At the same time, the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology collaborated with the mixed-media-artist Chris Noelle in order to realize the video project ONE. In each one-minute video, the artist interprets the research work of all our centers in a creative way. The ONE Minute Videos perfectly demonstrate how the research work of the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology collaborates with creative work and design.
