Rimi/Imir Scenekunst welcomes you to a Artistry and Technology Presentation by Anders Eiebakke.

Anders will talk about his own artistic work and the history of drones from 1800s to today. From the technological development with the invention of the gyroscope and the photograph in the first half of the 1800s, via the first radio controlled boat in 1899, and the first plane without a pilot, with autopilot in 1918. He will also talk about the different dronetechnologies that exists today, and about militairy and sivile drones and how drone politics is being formed in conflict with the civil society and militairy interests. The startingpoint is a humanistic approach to dronetechnology as a representation and extenstion of the human body.

Anders Eiebakke (born 1970 in Oslo, Norway) was educated at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo

Anders Eiebakke first appeared Internationally with radical essays such as the «It’s typically Norwegian to be good» in the Melbourne biennale’s catalogue in 1999. He is basing his work on drawing, writing, 3D modelling and working with sensor technology, and is known internationally as a pioneer in artistic use of drone technology. Eiebakke has been operating his own Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, usually based on the shape of birds since 2007. His contributions to Manifesta 8 in 2010 was the first time artist drones were presented in Fine Art; he had crossed the Morroccan-Spanish border over the Spanish enclave Melilla in North Africa with his own developed drones and made films and photos discussing the Spanish civil war and the refugee crisis.

His works have been presented at among other PAM 18 in Munich, Germany, Manifesta 8, Murcia, Spain, The shadow of War: 100 years of Norwegian political art, Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo, Norway, Back to Basics at Vestfossen Art Laboratory, Norway, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France, The National Theatre in Oslo, Norway, Drammen museum, Norway, and Piksel 17 festival for electronic art in Bergen, Norway. His commissioned work «Seagull 1.0» from 2016 in The Norwegian Data Protection Agency was the culmination of a decade of working with drone technology. Since 2018 he has been working with Munich based artist Nando Schneider on artificial intelligence, mobile network and facial recognition technology. Their work «Stealing Fire from the Gods» shown at SOETH07 in Berlin in 2019 was based on their own developed IMSI-catcher, hacking the cell phone network around the exhibition and transferring geolocation data of the visitors into a 3D soundscape. Their work «Datamirror» commissioned by the city of Munich is an electronic mirror analysing in real time the faces of the viewer based on facial recognition algorithms.
