Peter Geschwind: After Image
|Author||Sara Arrhenius; Fia Backström; Gunilla Klingberg e.a.|
|Publisher||Art And Theory Publishing|
Peter Geschwind (1966–2021) developed a unique technology for creating “reality animations” in which he used sound and light to create moving images of real objects in the physical space. Like in the classic artistic ‘trompe l’oeuil’ technique, the works are experienced as true, even as the viewer perceives the trick simultaneously. His often low-tech works have a DIY feel and play with popular cultural references in which humour as well as melancholy are palpable. Geschwind lived and worked in Stockholm, where he had significant influence on the artistic field. This book is published in conjunction with an exhibition at Bonniers Konsthall featuring new optical work by Geschwind.
