Artist Statement

There are four series of Seismographic Recordings; Seismographic Recordings originating from the body/ originating from the environment/ originating from the environment with question and originating from the environment in-situ. In 2007 I started to develop a system to record signals from the body and the environment.

In these processes I am posing the question of whether artists can generate visual processes that ultimately result in legibility. To zero in on this question and possibly find an answer, I invited scholars from various scientific disciplines to comment upon the Seismographic Recordings from the standpoint of their fields. The summarized conversations are published in the newly released publication: Irene Weingartner – Aufzeichnungsmaschine / Recording Maschine. (http://www.irene-weingartner.ch/Publikation.html)

 

Other drawings are dealing with insights of chemical compounds not existing yet. Or there is the series of Recording of a possible Landscape, where I am composing landscapes. Another ongoing series is the Text – Drawings, where I am trying to formulate an abstract concept through the process of the act to draw and write simultaneously, until I find a solution of both coming together – the drawing and the writing.
