Digital Dish: Klemens Kohlweis & Andreas Zißler


Klemens Kohlweis is an artist and a toolmaker. He builds installations involving sound with a range of techniques, spanning from home-made electronics for controlling wind instruments to loudspeakers, gaffer-taped onto hacked vacuum cleaning robots.

Andreas Zißler studied art and architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and is a trained precision mechanic. His artistic work deals with the digitalization and automation of our environment. By observing and reflecting on his own working practices, he creates productive feedback loops. His interdisciplinary work practice moves fluidly between performance, sound art, media art and architecture.

As part of the collective »anulla« they developed concerts and performances, often finding unusual uses for everyday objects. Recently they worked on the stage and the sound design for the theatre-production ‘Union of Global Artificial Intelligence’ in 2019/2020.
