Doors of Perception (One-Eye)

HD video, looped, silent - 2014 - 01:06 min Courtesy SVIT DOORS OF PERCEPTION (ONE-EYE) takes the eye as a portal between the inner and the outer world and installs it on the intersection of so called reality and the virtual world – on the interface of our devices. The technological eye is gazing back at the spectator. Referring to religious medieval painting and the image of the All-Seeing Eye (God), in today´s perspective of surveillance this digital Icon becomes an ambivalent one.  Since the mid 90s digital pioneer Markus Selg (b.1974, living in Berlin) is exploring the dynamics between archaic myths and computer technology in forms of digital painting, sculpture, the moving image, theater and encompassing, immersive installations. Recent exhibitions / performances: Medea.Matrix (with Susanne Kennedy, Ruhrtriennale, 2016), Primitive Data (De Hallen / Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem, 2015), Sublimation / Simulation (Galerie Guido W. Baudach, Berlin, 2014), La Vague d´Esprit, (Vilma Gold, London, 2013)
