The Austrian artist LIA - one of the early pioneers of software and internet art - produces digital art, interactive installations and sound art. Her internet projects combine the tradition of drawing and painting with the aesthetics of digital icons and algorithms. Her style is characterized by a minimalist quality with an affinity to conceptual art.

"Transition 89" is an audiovisual cooperation between LIA and the musical group @c alias Pedro Tudela and Miguel Carvalhais. @c created the composition "89", which serves as the basis for the work, during an artist residency in Portugal, where the musicians were inspired by the ecological, architectural and cultural contexts of the Fujaco region.

In "Transition 89" LIA translates an excerpt from the composition into her visual algorithm-based style. The constant structural mutations, which also give the work its title, are not only a reflection of the compositional processes, but also, much like the soundtrack, a commentary on ecological, social and cultural dynamics.

For the exhibition, "If this is the Answer, what is the Question?" LIA expands the work into the exhibition space of the MAK. "Transition 89 - 2.0" reflects internal visual structures and condenses itself into a monumental, abstract, ornamental network within space.

“10” is the last piece out of a series of ten works on

The pieces on articulate mathematical and natural principles below a visual surface in an enjoyable and sometimes playful way — people should be able to get their own ideas about the pieces and involve themselves without having any preconception of how to watch or how to "use" the pieces — that's why there are no instructions or any guidelines. Depending of the used formulas and also depending on who is watching/playing around, the results of the created images and/or sounds will always be different — in that sense, the user can also be seen as an additional source of randomness in the code which can help to create a more or less "organic" result.

i explored the behaviour of a 3D printer and its filament (developing my own software in the process) to create a new kind of sculpture, native to the medium.

behaviours discovered:
1. surfaces can be continuous or chaotic
2. lines can be rigid or organic
3. filament can be closely controlled or let free to find its own form

construction methodologies:
1. "strings and blobs"
2. letting filament pile up on itself
3. under-constrained wall-building
4. natural collapse

4_ outcome
series of sculptures are discovered by exploring the parameter space of a base model

Three Suns

With her latest video "Three Suns", LIA invites the viewer on an excursion through a universe of superformulae and mesmerising sounds.

Three dark objects, each with bright orange rays, inhabit a shared space. Constantly in motion, and constantly changing in size, they circle each other, generating a continuous sound that depends upon their relative positions to each other.

As they travel on their separate journeys they leave traces, which over time are overwritten and blend into one another, evoking a vision of infinity.
