PERCEPTION AND REALITY
According to defined biological conditions,
Carefully observe, with time, and we increasingly no longer recognize
The connection between the components of what we see.
As an intertwining of
art and architectural space, Michael Hawk combines the structures of traditional art presentation into a form of new contemporary concepts. By means of varying techniques
These works serve as a 'biological, non-linear magnifying glass', enabling a more accurate perception of formative processes.
After Hamburg and Berlin, the artist lives and works in Rotenburg in Lower Saxony, where he develops his nomadic works, including projects like FATA MORGANA,
a series of installations in public space. Currently, the artist is working on 'CineGoRound' - high-resolution endless animated loops as a result from photographs and digital image processing.
