Quadrature’s artistic research focuses on data and physical experiments. The Berlin based artist duo pursues a transdisciplinary approach, using various media such as time-based performance and installation as well as classical sculptural and two-dimensional works. For some years, the artists have been focusing specifically on the methods and stories involved in exploring the cosmos. For Quadrature the universe represents an intangible but very real place for their reflections, evoking both the most elemental emotions and the most advanced scientific theories. The boundaries and limitations the human mind and its physical representations encounter resonates in all their work.
The members Juliane Götz, Sebastian Neitsch and formerly Jan Bernstein (until 2016), have won several awards and scholarships for their artistic practice, their works are shown around the world in various festivals and exhibitions.
The audiovisual performance LGM#2 is based on an extensive database of pulsars and neutron stars. The extremely fast rotations and strong gamma rays of these exotic celestial bodies are transformed into clicks, sine waves and light, exploring the rhythms and wavelengths of these pulsating sources of radio emission for aesthetic patterns and harmonies.
In collaboration with soundartist Kerim Karaoglu. Created as part of #bebeethoven, a project by PODIUM Esslingen.
