Erwin Redl investigates the process of “reverse engineering” by translating the abstract language of virtual reality back into architectural environments. In his work, space is experienced as a second skin, our social skin, which is transformed through the artistic intervention.
Redl's work was featured in the Whitney Biennial, covering the Whitney Museum's facade with LED veils (2002). He created a sound and light installation for the Austrian Pavilion at the World Expo in Zaragoza, Spain (2008). The Pacific Design Center’s Red Building in Los Angeles features four installations by the artist (2013). His largest work is a 590 ft long outdoor LED-installation at the Wexner Center in Columbus, Ohio (2010).
Redl's work is collected by prominent institutions, such as the Whitney Museum New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Milwaukee Art Museum and Borusan Contemporary Istanbul as well as by many private collectors.
Erwin Redl was born in 1963 in Gföhl, Austria, lived in New York from 1993-2007 and moved to rural Ohio in 2007.
