Tonight Julius Popp, an interdisciplinary artist, gave us a lecture focusing on the process of thought and the creation of meaning in an social environment.. The talk covered different works – for example bit.fall a word writing waterfall, bit.flow a letter creating chaotic tube machine, macro.spheres an inverted world model and micro.adam a machine questioning the relation between body, environment and thought – and gave a perspective on the theoretical background of the works.

Julius Popp, born 1973 in Nürnberg, is living and working in Leipzig, Germany. In the mid-nineties he was trained as advertisement photographer. From 1998-2005 he studied art at the academy of visual arts in Leipzig. After finishing with distinction he was Meisterschüler of Prof. Astrid Klein. He creates objects, installations and environments, blurring the border between art and science. The large installations of Julius Popp visualize the abstract nature of information, making it possible to feel and question the change in human society. He was awarded with numerous international awards and maintained collaborations with M.I.T, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, Fraunhofer Institut, St. Augustin, Germany and different universities.
