Martin’s innovative exploration of film as artistic language is not limited to the making of films – he also develops hardware and processing solutions. He is committed to overcoming the creative boundaries written into industry standards by developing new tools and techniques. His inventions are often made available to other artists, or find a commercial afterlife. He worked as Curator for Photography at the Museum of Technology in Vienna. Although today he focuses more on creative partnerships and less on his own art, his works from the late 1990s, such as tx-transform, continue to be shown and discussed.
The outstanding film “Dreams Rewired” takes viewers on a journey way back in time to the electric media boom of the late 19th century. At the same time, the directors provide a foretaste of technological development and the need for each of us to act in order to secure an open future.
