Dominik Stauch
Dominik Stauch, from Thun, is a pioneer of interactive, web based art projects. In addition to his activity as a 'classical' painter (Stauch also works with oil painting), he has increased his artistic output with computer animations and installations. His videos impress on one hand with elaborate and imaginative geometric 'gadgets', and on the other with ingeniously simple forms. He combines this technique with startling use of colour, and often supports his animations with sound. For example, some of his works are accompanied by self-composed electric guitar sequences. The works become 'optical-acoustic', rhythmic worlds of colour. Sometimes they are calm and meditative, sometimes aggressive and reflective, always challenging. Stauch explores a new arena of expression with colours.
