HIC SVNT DRACONES – servus.at Artistic Research Lab
All these works were created in the frameworks of the Research Lab and were thought, planned and produced as a form of collaborative experiment amongst all the participants.
Glitchcar (Object, Photos, Google Street View Spheres)
Transforming a digital glitch into an analogue object, creating a feedback by putting it back to its digital origin.
Histeria (Manipulated map, print)
Maps not only reflect spatial conditions and structures but also illustrate religious, philosophical and political concepts, as well as fiction.
Dérive Updated (Postcards)
A series of 8 instruction-based postcards playing with the ideas of psychogeography and (des)orientation.
There be Dragons (Print, Google Street View Spheres Manipulation)
In the financial world, high-risk speculations are informally named “T.B.D.” (there be dragons). Leaked documents from the Panama Papers contain addresses in Linz, now marked with dragons.
Street Poems (A4-Sheet, typewriter, GPS-path)
Walking a path, writing a path. A Street Poetry Walk is an urban dérive focused on words and letters. A method of mapping through reading and writing.
“Post for F.X. Fridelli” (Intervention in public space: house number shield, mailbox, submissions on digital mapping services, online accounts, fidelity cards)
F.X.Fridelli, a fictional descendant of the cartographer Xaver Ernbert Fridelli (Linz 1673 – Peking 1743), has a new home in Linz.
Dragon (Digital video)
We’ve seen dragons fly over the city! They usually come and go as they please, always leaving changes to the city. Telling a story by twisting the context, playing with glitches.
