STEFAN REISS

ABOUT

In his artistic work, Stefan Reiss has been researching drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, projection and light as an artistic medium for over ten years. The basis of all his work is the exploration of the theme of transformation. Stefan Reiss understands transformation as a multidimensional process of analogue as well as digital realms. The focus is on human perception, with the whole body and all the senses. Digital tools and human comprehension stimulate each other reciprocally and connect art and technology, research and innovation, interdisciplinarity and immersion.
