Chris Noelles specialty is lightpainting. In this Deep Space Experience we get insights into the experimental and creative approach that the Linz based artist has been dealing with on various levels for two decades.
From working with an industrial robot to soap bubble macro shots to holographic mixed media applications, the topic of lightpainting provides amazing approaches to the creative fusion of fiction and reality. The urban space is being redefined, a constantly evolving cycle is emerging, which, like a perpetual motion machine, constantly produces new ideas. Painting with light is based on long exposure, on imagination and clearly structured action sequences, it’s about getting control over the light. But mistakes and imperfections are also part of the creative process. “Sometimes the clean result is less impressive than the one where I stumbled over an obstacle in the dark.”
In his pictures, art meets science and creates new artistically usable tools through the transformation of robotics, motors, machines and lightsources.
The interaction of man, space and machine and the associated transformation process between the analog and digital world are core themes of Noelle’s work and research.
Noelle’s approximately 40-minute creative lecture at Deepspace takes you on a journey from darkness to the light at the end of the tunnel and opens up new perspectives and brainfood to become creative yourself.
