Patterns that Connect

Bauhaus University Weimar (DE)

| | |

Planet earth is a shared habitat, where we humans strive to coexist with our fellow creatures and with machines. The exhibition Patterns That Connect proposes to rethink the “dance of agency” in relation to the long-lasting evolution and customs, behavioral patterns we can address and modify. We see our environment as a performative repository of tools, and patterns are a starting point with which we can act in open situations. Understanding our working field as a context that exists as performative patterns through time, students of the Media Art and Media Design program at Bauhaus University Weimar use media to redefine those patterns as connecting bridges between apparent polarities and paradoxes.


With faculties such as Architecture and Urbanism, Civil Engineering, Art and Design, and Media, the Bauhaus University Weimar has a distinctive identity. Referring to environment as a concept from artistic practice of the 1950s that emphasizes the mismatch between life and art, the Chair of Media Environments aims to redesign everyday situations, objects, devices and practices.


The exhibition has been developed at the Chair of Media Environments, Prof. Ursula Damm, Mindaugas Gpaševičius
