room69


Room69 is a collective working with new exhibition formats, media arts and installations. Interests of the collective are characterized by common reflections on various themes, such as the complex relationship between the constructed world and the natural world, mediating on hyperconnectivity and displaying their individual responses to notions of fluid networked systems. Room69 is showcasing a diverse cross-section of transmedial works in a variety of scale, approach and medium.


The first show “somewhere between there and here” dealt with notions of fluid networked systems in an offsite space on the outskirts of Vienna and showed a distinct range of installations by the collective’s members.

For the second show “i wish you were not here” they worked with the theme of virtual squatting, creating an exhibition by 3d scanning an abandoned space in the first district of Vienna and placing their digital artworks in it. The whole project was then published on google maps and was available to be experienced through google street view. Documentation can be found on SoloShow

Hannah Neckel is an intermedia artist, based on the internet as voidgirl69, studying transmedia art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
Her multimedia XXXperiences seduce you into a dreamy hyper space in which the internet and the physical world merge. The internet as a utopian place of longing serves as the starting point for the desire for freedom, which manifests itself in the works and is generated in an interlude of online and offline footage. The internet aesthetic spills into reality as if from a glass that overflows and overlaps and merges like the layers of a Photoshop file.

Josepha Edbauer is a multimedia artist; In her practice, contradictions are addressed and narrated through transdisciplinary room installations. The starting point are deconstructions of personal circumstances in different systems in which the artist is surrounded. Coming from an art historical background, questioning the mechanisms and structures of the art world is thus a recurring subject, as is visualizing digital phenomena in our analog society. The digital space and its structures are no less real than our analog world.
Each object carries its own meaning, which results from the interplay. Josepha translates her analyses into materials that suggest new perspectives in their altered context. Materials carry the previous within them, and through their detachment from their socio-cultural context, are brought into new ones to express.
Josepha studies Transmedia Art in the class of Brigitte Kowanz at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.

Brookyln J. Pakathi uses art as a means to unfold. Their cross-dimensional practice manifest from internal meditations on the ephemera of intimacy and the resulting outcomes as expressed in large part due to the internet. Interested in dialogue with the aesthetic language of the internet – their work speaks to an energy consciousness reconciling the external reflections of our internal vulnerabilities. In searching for the connectors of cause, meaning and sense of resolve, Pakathi’s practice fundamentally speaks to the tragic vulnerability of romance, a desire to understand the materiality of emotion. There are ideas and spaces and technologies that charge their work: engaging with the relationships we manifest with digital technologies, their practice explores the formations of, enactments with and responses to digital intimacy. Interested in the synaesthetic-like experiences of art-production, they explore these themes through mixed and extended realities, video vignettes, digital observations, and photographic interrogations employing text, methods of self-love and meditative healing practices.

Cristian Anutoiu is a visual artist from Romania/Germany, currently based in Vienna. He is primarily working with 3D software, painting, sculpture and virtual worlds. In his practice, the notion of the virtual is used as a starting point for developing worlds injected with soft magical realism. Both the virtual and physical space are used as a melting pot for transporting ideas into graspable reality, merging these two mediums through the visualisation of installative narratives. Artificiality and the organic are used as a tool to emphasize the fragility of human subjectivity.  
Currently he is studying Painting & Animation Film under Judith Eisler at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
