Adam Donovan and Katrin Hochschuh
Australia, Austria, Germany
Adam Donovan and Katrin Hochschuh met through a mutual network of artists, architects and researchers during the installation of one of Donovan’s pieces at the Museum of Digital Art in Zurich, Switzerland. Discovering their mutual interest in the complex combination of multiple fields of art and science, they realized that their different backgrounds and competences merge very well and allow them to go deeper into these fields than one could alone.
Donovan is highly specialised in the field of scientific acoustics, researching focused acoustics and acoustic lenses in multiple fields of his artistic practice. Hochschuh has an architectural background in digital design and robotic fabrication, exploring architectural geometries, algorithms, swarm simulation and interactivity.
Their works and machines invoke an otherness or timelessness that is only present in the here and now.
