In his artistic praxis Refik Anadol is working with interferences of analogue and digital architecture. He reflects space-time structure, as it is manifested in build architecture, in architecture photography. In his audiovisual performances he is re-modelling faces and buildings with digital concepts.
Refik Anadol develops a digital mapping which enables him to experiment with visual aspects of surface and volume through the projection of colours, structures and systems fitting the architecture of the Sterncenter. A series of animated projections has been generated. It plays with showing or disguising the analogue architecture. Anadol’s abstract forms and repetitions just as well as his colours and geometrical formations translate the principles of op-art into the digital age. The title “Semaphore” is borrowed from computer sciences where it signifies a data structure which enables the mutual connection of parallel processes.
