Rainer Gamsjäger works, reductively speaking, in the old genre of landscape painting, even if nature photography supplies him with no more than the raw material for his computer-generated works. What he is aiming for is a structural analysis of video as a medium: proceeding from the notion of digital space that video is based on, with the format of height times width plus a temporal sequence t, Gamsjäger intervenes in the video’s linearity using self-programmed software. This intervention in the digital structure creates irritatingly alienating effects that mesmerise the viewer.

As Artist in Residence (in cooperation with Crossing Europe Film Festival) Gamsjäger has developed a new work, CLUSTER, for TRIENNALE LINZ . It forms the epilogue of a series of works dealing with phenomena of nature. CLUSTER is a première in that it deals with a staged phenomenon and, as in »State of Flux«, which also focuses on dynamic-chaotic systems, the camera remains fixed. In physics, the term »cluster« describes, among other things, a system of individual atoms and/or molecules on the cusp of a physical body. A computer cluster is a group of linked computers, which is vastly superior to single computers in terms of the data volume it can handle. The monumental panorama of a six-channel video installation of white smoke in front of a black background does not venture beyond a totally abstract, mysteriously pregnant pattern of allusions..
