Achim Wollscheid is an artist whose work has spearheaded the experimental music movement in recent decades. His research has led him to a deeper understanding of the relationship between sound, light and architectural spaces, as shown in his highly interactive pieces. He was a founding member of the groundbreaking German group Selektion, an organisation that produces and distributes information systems.
In Wollscheid’s work, the artistic object becomes a system that responds to a specific situation. Light systems that respond to sounds or devices that react to human movement both have considerable presence in his installations. In this way, the work of art is not just a mere physical object; rather it becomes a tool that crosses the limits of social space.
