Nils Völker
& collect
Nils Völker is a media artist living and working in Berlin. In 2004 he received a diploma from Bauhaus University in Weimar. Afterwards he moved to Berlin where he started working as communication designer. Since 2010 he creates artworks with the means of physical computing somewhere at the intersection of technology and art. In 2010 he realized an installation made from ordinary garbage bags, inflated and deflated in controlled rhythms. This work was the starting point for a whole series of installations based on inflating/deflating cushions made from different materials. The largest one was made from 252 large silver cushions for the exhibition "Captured – a Homage to Light and Air" followed by further site specific commissions such as "Thirty Six" for Art Lab Gnesta, "Forty Eight" for the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, "Seventy Five" for Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts in Taipei and "Eighty Eight" commissioned by the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur, Switzerland. This installation has been adapted in 2013 as "Eighty Eight #2" for an exhibition at the Musée de Design et d’Arts Appliqués Contemporains in Lausanne. Besides working on further variations of this series, Nils Völker lately realized "64 CCFL", a light installation made from cold cathode fluorescent lights, and "Fountains" his first public artwork that is now in permanent collection in Xixi Wetland Park in Hangzhou, China.
