> From Flash to Pixel - Berlin, Germany (2008) and Shanghai, China (2006)
"From Flash to Pixel" is an exhibition which presents four states of "the immaterial". Starting with fire, the first domesticated energy, the exhibition follows man's development and transformation of energy production to ever higher degrees of sophistication that has followed in parallel to his own evolution. Electricity, light, and now the pixel which, like the spark for fire, is the basic cell of the electronic image. Fundamentally spectacular because of its subject, "From Flash to Pixel" is also an eye-opening voyage into the most impressive expressions of the today's art.
