Ursula Endlicher turns digital code into physical form. A media artist who has worked since the mid ‘90s with the Internet, she is focusing on how digital culture imbues the material world. She has built Internet art works and performances, with real-time data and code determining their layout and choreographies. Combining her background in Fine Art, Theater Studies and Computer Art, she has transformed the hidden structures of the Inter-networked world into mixed-media installations using ceramics, video, agricultural fields and food, inviting her audience to partake in the celebration of these re-coded systems through tours and dinner events offering “edible HTML.” In her most recent installation "Input Field Form #2" she transformed the Artist Residency application form – the HTML form that gathers user information through Input Fields – into an agricultural field at ChaNorth in Upstate NY during the "Process Park" residency. Among her most well known Internet Art works is "html_butoh", a movement database for the HTML language, commissioned by one of the first leading website supporting Internet Art, Turbulence.org. Another work, "Light and Dark Networks", part of the Whitney Museum of American Art's permanent collection, populated the museum's website with different "data performances" driven by changes in New York City's weather and air quality. She has presented her work in national and international galleries and venues including Harvestworks, StreamingWorks, Air Circulation, transmediale Berlin, SIGGRAPH Asia, and ISEA, and was awarded a project residency at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center. Ursula was born and raised in Vienna, Austria, and lives in New York since 1993.
