DADA POST Presents
Current: On Going Project
Udo Wid: The Perun Project
Curated by Marcel Hager
Udo Wid has a background in Biophysics.
Wid’s projects are simultaneously Biophysics and Visual Art practice. His numerous projects are aimed at a synergy of disciplines: a confluence of Science, Art, Philosophy and Everyday Life.
He studied physics and worked for eight years in the field of Biophysics at Reactor Research Centre Seibersdorf, and was a guest at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. He employs among other things Cultural Theory, Aesthetics, and Philosophy. His scientific specialty is Extreme Low Frequencies.
While exploring the intersections of art and science, The Perun Project collects data from trees, as they themselves interact, through their internal systems, with the environment to detect environmental conditions, such as the amount of sunlight, the various weather conditions, and the presence of toxic contamination, all of which have a direct impact on the life of the tree. By transposing the resulting scientific measurements into graphical notations, he thus transforms scientific research into artistic artifacts.
Udo Wid’s ambition is to make art and life become one. By living in his installation for extended lengths of time, during the exhibition, he will be available to visitors for conversation.
