Computer-generated video installations by Alexander Hahn and Yves Netzhammer.
Computer-generated video installations by Swiss artists Alexander Hahn and Yves Netzhammer reveal a fascination with internal landscapes of the mind. Hahn's interactive Luminous Point allows the viewer to take a self-guided tour of a virtual simulation of the artist's Manhattan apartment, using a remote control to navigate a gamelike labyrinth of spaces derived from digital manipulations of photographic and filmic records. Where Hahn's hybrid space incorporates images of the real world, Netzhammer presents a poetic world of pure invention. Premiering at SFMOMA, his Furniture of Proportions incorporates highly stylized wall drawings, animation, and sculptural objects to create an intricate spatial narrative.
