Robots, failure and artmaking – conversation with Niki Passath

posted in: words | 0

In February and March this year I did a residency at Schaumbad Freies Atelierhaus in Graz, Austria. As a result of my exhibition I did a short presentation of the large scale DIY 3d printer I’ve been working on here that is to print itself a monument of post-humanism. Starting from there, we talk with Niki Passath. Niki is an artist working with and around robots to create more-than-human artworks – paintings, tatoos and kinetic sculptures. His practice explores the relationship between the tool, medium and the content with witt and humour.

After all the talk, we were served food by machines. Namely, chocolate fondue fountain, waffler, coffe machine and cotton candy maker. Sweet.
