The Archaeology of the Future

Michael Saup will speak about his artistic work embracing the enigmatic subjacent forces of nature and society such as media metrics, fossil and infossil transformation, atomic coding and spherical world models.

“Sometimes, it felt like the inner workings of the universe made visible. It revolved slowly, then grew in complexity until it seemed, in substance if not style, like a collaboration between da Vinci, Picasso and Stephen Hawking.”

Evening Post, Auckland, New Zealand

Michael Saup (Germany, 1961) started off with video and film, pioneering the field when using software as an artistic media, connecting light patterns, music and visuals. Among his works are sound driven computer animations, interactive concerts and interactive site-specific light installations.

Since 1989 Michael Saup has taught at many universities. He has acted as digital media art founding professor of ZKM University, the biggest institution within the field in Germany. Early 2000’s his Weapons of Mass Education workshops were given in India, Afghanistan, Morocco and Europe.

The German artist has repeatedly shown in major museums, festivals and theatres around the globe, won much recognition and produced collaborative works with key figures of diverse contemporary art disciplines. After having retreated many years to the desert and the forest this nomad is now based in Berlin.
