Erwin Redl was born in Gföhl, Austria in 1963. He came to the US with a Fulbright scholarship in 1993 to study computer art at School of Visual Arts in New York. The artist lives in Bowling Green, Ohio and New York City. His work is informed by a combination of conceptual-structural thinking and profound craftsmanship both in electronic and traditional media. Since 1997, the artist has investigated the process of “reverse engineering” by translating the abstract aesthetic language of virtual reality back into architectural environments through large scale light installations. In this body of work, space is experienced as a second skin, our social skin, which is transformed through his artistic intervention. His work is collected by prestigious national and international institutions.
