The German artist Ulf Langheinrich works with digital media exploring and extending the potential of technology in contemporary artistic practice. Langheinrich, whose background originates in painting and photography, uses a powerful combination of sound and images to address the abstract idea he describes as a ‘aesthetic matter’ in installations and live performances that engage with a careful analysis of detail, overwhelming beauty and stillness. His work also includes a long term collaboration with Kurt Hentschläger under the name Granular Synthesis.
Son[i]a talks to Ulf Langheinrich about his views on aesthetics and the perception of flow both in his audiovisual work and during his experience in Ghana, where he has lived for some years.
