Electrohype presents the fifth biennial for computer based- and technological art at Malmö konsthall in Sweden. The Electrohype biennial 2008 introduces 14 artworks from 10 different countries:
OCAD Professor Doug Back, CA
Ralf Baecker, DE _
Serina Erfjord, NO
Kerstin Ergenzinger, DE
Jessica Field, CA
Voldemars Johansons, LV _
Diane Morin, CA
Kristoffer Myskja, NO
Erik Olofsen, NL

For this years biennial we have chosen works that in a unique way are complex in their own small universes – and makes us think about what we often takes as given.

The biennial holds a common theme about time and ongoing processes. In the exhibition, the viewer is invited to experience works that are independent machines slowly working in a methodic way, alongside objects that are animated with, for example, motors and light. Yet others are controlled with mathematical rules. A number of the works play on a change in our perception of time or of our physical existence.

Venue & Address: 
Malmö Konsthall SE-200 10, Malmö, Sweden
