About the Actual and the Virtual


3 serpentinite stones found at the Clemgia riverside, Grisons Switzerland. Prints made from 3D scans of the stones as well as from custom-made software

A work that reflects on materiality as well as on the perception of our reality, both philosophically and aesthetically.

 

 

Eno Henze, curator of NODE13, wrote this beautiful text about my work:

"Using a semi-automatic scanning method, Ivo Schüssler created 3D objects from stones he found on his hiking-tours, so that they could exist as avatars in digital space. It is simple enough to understande the change in the state of being that they have undergone by being disembodied and transferred into the space of digital representation. The stone loses its stoniness and a new more ideal ´state of being´ emerges. The stone is no longer a stone. Matisse has made his process of signification of art comprehensible with his famous painting ´Ceci n´est pas une pipe´(´This is not a pipe´). However, this process takes a new turn when it undergoes automatic treatments as a part of its digitalization, which becomes apparent in Schüssler´s work. The digital space has a certain autonomy of adaption, realization and memorization that doesn´t exist in traditional forms of representation. Though the viewer remains the centre of reference for Matisse, this approach suggest that things in digital form are part of their own reality, and they no longer need a human spectator to be realized."
