Erwin Redl

The site for Erwin Redl's FADE III offered a mathematical framework for Erwin Redl’s precise and  controlled installation.  “My work reflects upon the condition of art making after the ‘digital experience.’ The formal and structural approach to the various media I employ, such as installation, CD-ROM, internet and sound, almost requires binary logic, because I assemble the material according to a narrow set of self-imposed rules which often incorporate algorithms, controlled randomness and other methods inspired by computer code.” -- Erwin Redl

Born in Austria, Erwin Redl has worked and lived in New York since 1993. Redl works with LED lights, but arranges them in a square grid with only a few inches apart. In his “fade” series, the LED lights slowly transition from red to blue. People have described his installations as “mesmerizing”. Redl states: “My work reflects upon the condition of art making after the ‘digital experience.’ The formal and structural approach to various media I employ, such as installation, CD-ROM, internet and sound, almost requires binary logic, because I assemble the material according to a narrow set of self-imposed rules which often incorporate algorithms, controlled randomness and other methods inspired by computer code.” http://www.paramedia.net/
