Chris Henschke
experimental capture

Thursday, 29 August 2013
Bergstraße 2
10115 Berlin-Mitte

Chris Henschke was artist in residence at the 
Australian Synchrotron in 2007-2008 and 2010, and 
his work has been much influenced by the desk to 
desk collaborations with scientists since then. 
Lately, he was also invited to the famous CERN in 
Switzerland, which hit the news for the probable 
discovery of the Higgs boson. Henschke sees many 
similarities between the work of artists and 
scientists, but he also sees a mayor difference 
in the perception of experimentation:
"empirical science is based upon observation and 
measurement of repeatable experiments; however, 
in a phenomenological sense every experiment and 
observation is unique." In his work, Henschke on 
one hand documents his experiences at the 
Synchrotron, and combines it with visual 
observations and re-edits the footage in 
experimental ways. On the other hand, he started 
to do his own experiments with high voltage with 
a diversity of objects. Third, and possibly 
another way of experimentation, he plays 
electronic music and creates visuals that combine 
camera images with effects driven by the music.

Chris Henschke will be present for Q&A. Curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr
