The CYENS Thinker Maker Space presents a talk by its artist in residency Nemo Nonnenmacher.
The talk will be giving insight into Nemo’s artistic practice, focusing on the processes – both physical and digital within his work – while presenting his recent projects, exhibitions and artworks. This will serve as a background to talking specifically about materials gathered from wildfire sites around the mediterranean that became the starting point for his residency at the CYENS Thinker Maker Space. The materials and technologies he is experimenting with whilst in Nicosia, as well as his overall approach to the subject, thoughts and work in progress will be highlighted.
– The talk has limited spaces and registration is required.
– Registration & participation are free.
Nemo Nonnenmacher (b. 1988, Duisburg, Germany) is a visual artist based in Europe.
He uses photography, sculpture and Virtual Reality to explore the relationship between body and digital space, the connection between ‘physical’ and ‘virtual’. He creates immersive visual worlds, constantly testing and investigating new technologies. On the one a fascination with the democratic outset, the participatory ‘everyone is a creator’, on the other hand the awareness of how virtual environments and digital culture ‘grow’ into and dictate our daily lives.
