Screen Walk with Florian Amoser

Florian Amoser’s works explore various aspects of human perception. Ever since photography was invented, humans have used it as an instrument to extend the limits of their ability to observe, which ultimately links the technological development of the photographic apparatus to how we perceive our surroundings.
Amoser builds his own original tools for his artistic works in which physical reality begins to imitate a new digital reality. In cooperation with interaction designer Pietro Alberti, he is currently developing audio visual live performances using a drone to explore landscapes. For Screen Walks, they will share the process of making these performances and take the viewers along on a drone and synthesizer experience.

In Screen Walks, a series of live-streamed explorations of digital spaces, selected artists and researchers investigate artistic strategies taking place online. The project gives an insight into practices using the screen as a medium. From re-contextualising pictures found on online marketplaces and uncovering data brokers’ invisible circulation of images to analysing in-game photography and the social, political and economic implications of games – Screen Walks examines various approaches, offers a behind-the-scenes look at artists’ work and uncovers new, current and forgotten digital spaces. Screen Walks is a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery in London and Fotomuseum Winterthur.
