concrete metamorphosis

In “Concrete Metamorphosis,” the artist collective room69 muses on the fractured paradoxes of concrete, a material as mundane as it is monumental. The installation stands as a repurposing, interrogating the essence of this material body, especially in the time defined as the Anthropecene: humans have become the determining factor for a global ecosystem, environmental impacts are interwoven with technological advancement. This is a speculative inquiry into the materiality of our world, and how time, material and human expansion shape us.

lost to the digital ether

For their latest hybrid installation, commissioned by das weisse haus, room69 responds to the idea around a reformatting of archives. How does archival material sit within the expandable walls of virtual space? How does virtuality situate itself in the cultural temporality of das weisse haus?

exhibited at and comissioned by das weisse haus in Vienna, Austria 

balancing through breaking brightness. concrete depths

The latest exhibition is another foray into hybrid fantasies; an interplay of an online Google Maps experience and a physical sculptural installation within Monolog’s gallery space.
Showing collective + individual work of all core69 members & an accompanying sound installation by our newest member Roman Fleischmann.

ambient occlusion:
desired paths

For their first US exhibition, room69 draws their attention to the ecological and spiritual essence of the forest. The collective has mapped, scanned and virtualized Austria’s Donau Auen Nationalpark and extended the scans into a fragmented space coinciding with their relationship to technology, humanity and nature.

nowhere in particular

For the fifth edition of wrong.biennale, the biggest international biennial for digital art, room69 presented the physical embassy in Vienna:
nowhere in particular as part of the multilevel exhibition E.N.D.E.(experience near death experience).
The exhibition culminates under the terms overstimulation / overstimulation and extreme highs and lows, linking and complementing a variety of practices dealing with these experiences. E.n.d.e. explores notions of living in a time when reality and virtuality seem to merge, giving rise to a new, globally connected world, linked by our desire for community.
15 international artists meditate on the oversimulation of possible futures in their practices ranging from sculptural phygital installations to speculative research-based bio-art and performances.

like the lines of my body are melting away

The classic 90s anime franchise Evangelion proposes a theory where humanity can overcome its bodily boundaries and unite their souls as one, brought onwards by mankind, a forcedstep in evolution. Drawing from this as a course of action for collective work, we will merge our individual practises together into one immersive room filling installation. Intertwining our skills, aesthetics, conceptual approaches and research.
