 Aram Bartholl 

Artist Profile

In
 his
 work,
 the
 media
 artist
 Aram
 Bartholl
 examines
 the
 relationships
 between
 the
 network‐data‐world
 and
 our
 everyday‐life‐space:
 "In
 which
 form
 does
 the
 network‐ data‐world
 manifest
 in
 our
 everyday‐life‐space?
 What
 flows
 back
 from
 cyberspace
 into
 our
 physical
 space?
 How
 do
 digital
 technologies
 influence
 our
 everyday
 activities?"
 Emerging
 from
 these
 questions,
 Bartholl
 eagerly
 searches
 for
 a
 humorous
 approach
 to
 the
 phenomena
 of
 being
 digital.
 And,
 in
 this
 way,
 the
 imaginary
 borders
 between
 the
 virtual
 and
 the
 real
 are
 constantly
 questioned
 ‐
 the
 mutual
 relativity
 of
 both
 categories
 shifts
 into
 the
 foreground.
 Aram
 Bartholl's
 works
 have
 had
 international
 exposure
 at
 festivals
 such 
as 
Ars 
Electronica 
Linz, 
Futuresonic 
Manchester
 and 
Transmediale
 Berlin.
 Since
 1995, 
Aram
 Bartholl 
lives 
and
 works 
in 
Berlin.
