Abstract Animations

In the augmented video work “Abstract Animations”, Banz & Bowinkel combine animated graphic lines with computer simulations of three-dimensional bodies. Following the early experimental videos of Hans Richter, John Whitney and Norman McLaren, the computer-generated animations are conceived as musical analogies.



Together with Friedemann Banz, Giulia Bowinkel forms the Berlin artist duo Banz & Bowinkel. In their work Banz & Bowinkel deal with the computer as an everyday medium and its influence on mankind. The focus lies on the perception of the world, that is being understood as reality and that can now be simulated with the help of a computer.
In their work, Banz & Bowinkel question the concept of simulated reality and thus the human perception of the world in virtual space.
The award-winning works of Giulia Bowinkel and Friedemann Banz were exhibited in the Museum Abteiberg in Mönchengladbach, in the Haus der elektronischen Künste in Basel, in the Halle für Kunst & Medien in Graz and in the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen.
