Robert Seidel (1977) began studying biology at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and finished his Media design diploma at the Bauhaus University Weimar. His projections, installations and experimental films have been shown in numerous international festivals, in galleries as well as museums like Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, ZKM Karlsruhe, Nabi Art Center Seoul, Wilhelm Hack Museum Ludwigshafen, LACMA Los Angeles, Lindenau Museum Altenburg and MOCA Taipei. Seidel lives and works in Jena and Berlin.

"Drawings form the basis for all my films, projections and installations. I do not try to capture their end-state so much as different stages of their manifestations: the wrestling with each line, the fraying and foliating into complex webs or the dying off of entire ramifications. The dynamics of these processes, which resemble glimmering nerve pathways, is what matters - releasing them from the stillness of the picture's surface and linking them with the memories of the observer. In doing so I try to dissolve boundaries of genre by extending the clarity of the drawing - through the flow of painting, the spatiality of sculpture and temporal elements - into an abstract-film narrative. Besides the silver screen, conceptual, as well as real visual projection surfaces include architectural and sculptural forms. The material for these medial interlacings frequently originates in nature and in the abstract gaze of science on nature, for example in the form of MRI images. Through subsequent filtering with digital tools, it becomes possible - before the eyes of the recipient - to condense these structures into a rhizomatic memory structure independent from physical space and linear time. The filmic image conserves the whole creation process in abstract-organic tableaux vivants. In the process, temporal sequences or movements become not only imagined - as frequently attempted in the history of drawing and painting - but actually represented." --Robert Seidel
