Hyperactive Prototypes
As part of the annual exhibition of the University of Applied Arts Vienna, which bears the title "The Essence 10", from June 24 to July 18, 2010, the Digital Art Department will be presenting 15 pieces of work by digital art graduates under the title "Hyperactive Prototypes" in the Künstlerhaus, Vienna.
The range of selected works on display encompasses interactive and network-based installations, algorithmically designed sculptures, sensor-controlled objects, reactive sound sculptures, sound environments and mobile sound installations.   
The works are prototypes of differing forms of artistic approach and media aesthetic realisation. They are the results of an  experimental, artistic involvement with a process-oriented spatial mediality determined by algorithms.
This catalogue is a concise record of the projects presented.  All the projects represent diploma artwork submitted by students during the academic year 2009/10. (Diploma supervisors: DI Architect Nicolaj Kirisits, a.o.Univ.-Prof. Mag. art. Ruth Schnell and Univ.-Prof. Virgil Widrich).
