Tim Otto Roth, Sterea Skia, Installation, 2015/16

The annual "Regionale" exhibition brings together works that deal with our surrounding environment. They reflect natural phenomena using digital and electronic technology, and bring the sensory properties of these phenomena into the exhibition space. Visitors can plunge into forests, clouds and fields of stars: into a “second nature” that the artists themselves have created. Our impression of the world, our perception of nature, is shaped by the digital character of our age. These artists show us how the natural world can be represented and reconstructed almost seamlessly using technology, and they appeal to both our humor and our senses.
