How do we explain our media arts made @ the w3rkhof,  aka W3rkH0f media arts:

Kent is a highly experienced coder, with a distingushed career both in coding for computer music composition for renowned computer media artists as well as commercial tools (such as the Vokator by Native Instruments, or Spektral Delay and many others). Our art is highly influenced by the fact that we manufacture i.e. CODE our own software tools to then create our sound and images.

jana° supplies the visuals, selecting and inserting images, choosing the right settings and animations as well as offering her voice to be sampled live, – tweaking the UI/UX alongside ;-). Her influences include her many years in classical photography as well as theatrical experience and community activities.

So this is what W3rkH0f media arts does and we are known as line_code.

Public Space Video Installation
Commissioned by the Gemeinde Neunkirch

Generative video synthesis, rear projection video installation.
duration: 40:00

Realized under the artistic direction of Jana Honegger, the video projection leverages proprietary video synthesis and is comprised of photographic portraits of female residents of Neunkirch, female masks created by the local theatre fan and hobby mask maker Heinrich Pestalozzi, and of various architectoral details of historic Neunkirch.

The projekt “Ernas Rückkehr” is primarily a community art project. The portraits of local Neunkirch women (ranging from 7 months to 98 years old) are largely created under their own direction. The contrast between traditional motifs and top modern technology is deliberate. Local people as well visitors may experience the local virtues through high-end video synthesis literally in a new light.
