John Hawke’s work began through a self-education in landscape painting—specifically the sited-ness of plein air painting, and has developed to model the landscape not as an optical organization of colors, but as a collection of vectors of interest. He received master of fine arts (painting) and master of science degrees (art history) from Pratt Institute in 2002, after which he initiated a project with fellow Pratt alumnus Sancho Silva called Orange Work. The central premise was to adopt the role of construction workers and employ the florescent color orange that signals: AUTHORIZED DISRUPTION, to create urban interventions.

UBERMORGEN.COM is an artist duo created in Vienna, Austria, by lizvlx & Hans Bernhard. Behind UBERMORGEN.COM we can find one of the most unmatchable identities – controversial & iconoclastic – of the contemporary European techno-fine-art avant-garde. Their open circuit of conceptual art, drawing, software art, pixel painting, computer installations, net.art, sculpture & digital activism (media hacking) transforms their brand into a hybrid Gesamtkunstwerk. The computer & the network are (ab)used to create art & combine its multiple forms. the permanent amalgamation of fact & fiction points toward an extremely expanded concept of one’s working materials that for UBERMORGEN.COM also include (international) rights, democracy & global communication (input-feedback loops). “Ubermorgen” is the German word both for “the day after tomorrow” & “super-tomorrow”.
