The video version of I'll be there is included in a special video program by The Wrong, an important platform for digital art since 2013, which contributes greatly to distribution and accessibility of new media art worldwide. The video is presented as part of the screening CLUSTERED MINDS by medienkunstverein in cooperation with thewrong at Centre Pompidou. Focusing on digital culture, the video works show different visual worlds dedicated to the themes of the (post)digital age. Critical engagement with the digital and its diversity of perspectives permeate the moving image, highlighting its influence on our times.

EIGENHEIM Weimar/Berlin’s fifth edition box is focused on digital art. In cooperation with the medienkunstverein (mkv), their edition shows the artworks of thirty international artists. The constitutive element of the box is the NFC chip technology (Near Field Communication), which serves as a data exchange point for activating the works on the enclosed tablet. Integrated into individual wooden cuboids, the NFC chips contain the activation links for the respective artworks. If the viewer approaches one of the cuboids with the tablet, the artistic position is displayed and can be experienced on screen. The edition box creates a collective presentation of digital art in an intuitive way and uses different media formats such as video, AR, GIFs or 360° applications, enabling different forms of interaction simultaneously.
Through compiling the individual works, a multi-layered picture of digital art in general emerges. Embedded in a cuboid, each position manifests in analog space. The haptic cubes physically represent the immaterial works. Here, the form refers to the pixel — the smallest image point — and visualizes the digital image’s nature. The surface design is based on circuit board structure, which as an essential computer component is also a fundamental element of technologies today and highlights them as such. In their abstracted representation, the cuboids invite endless combinations and evoke a playful, tactile approach to the artworks. This approach at the same time visualizes the idea of the collective and like a puzzle, the individual works come together to form a larger whole.
In the context of the publication, the thirty digital artworks of the edition box will be shown in an exhibition in the Berlin space of the gallery.
