Robert Seidel

 
Robert Seidel (1977) first began studying biology and finished a media design diploma at the Bauhaus-University Weimar. His films have been shown in museums like the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, ZKM Karlsruhe or Wilhelm-Hack-Museum Ludwigshafen, galleries, magazines, books and TV programmes as well as hundreds of festivals like Prix Ars Electronica, onedotzero and DOTMOV. They have been honoured with several awards like the Honorary Award of KunstFilmBiennale and the Prize for Best Experimental Film at Ottawa International Animation Festival. In 2009 he had a Retrospective Screening at Nabi Art Center Seoul as well as the world-premiere of his gigantic virtual sculpture “vellum” (100x125x80 meters). In his films he is interested in pushing the boundaries of organic beauty and their emotional perception with visual and scientific technology. By layering different structural, spatial and temporal concepts organically he creates a slowly evolving complexity. This multifaceted perspective, a kind of narrative skeleton, is filled by the viewers own memory and creates a seamless blend with the artwork itself.
