The Stedelijk Museum and Sonic Acts are proud to present the video installation Measure (2014) by the Austrian artist Kurt Hentschläger.
Measure (2014) is a panoramic audiovisual installation that reflects on the concept of nature in the 21st century. As our experience of nature is filtered through digital communication channels, the boundaries between mediated and physical experience start to blur. The trance-like sequences of Measure move freely between natural and artificial forms, such as the lengthening of shadows, the passing of clouds, and ever-expanding grids. The work feels both organic and artificial. Hentschläger’s work probes the questions of whether “nature” and the concept of an “original” still exist.
This work is part of the Sonic Acts Festival 2015, at the Stedelijk Museum. For more information, please click here.
