ongoing Data Drawings

Peter Jellitsch’s Data Drawings are based on what has become an indispensable component of our modern-day (work) life: the Internet and the constant availability of a wireless connection to it. The artist repetitively translates measurable data from Wi-Fi connections in the form of ping, download, and upload speeds into formally complex drawings reminiscent of landscape topographies in pencil and acrylic. He lends form to the invisible digital processes around us and declares them the starting point and necessary basis of his work as an artist. Each Data Drawing is a snapshot and a survey of a specific place at a certain point in time. The numerical values precisely measured with an iPhone app have the appearance of an abstract artistic gesture on the paper with the unmistakable variance of human imprecision. The physical act of drawing is combined with the ubiquitous flows of information that we use and create at the same time: a potentially infinite and never complete creation of value from nothing.

2015 It could be like this…

In the Burgkapelle, Peter Jellitsch takes into account the central fresco by Ferdinand Fromiller. He selects individual parts of the Baroque trompe-l’œil painting – renderings of intangible content, atmospheres, moods, interpersonal connections – and confronts them with an abstract picture analysis. The specific elaborated fragments are shown as drawings and objects on display tables which bring to mind study situations. The viewer then relates the transformations to the original.

2012 Bleecker Street Documents

Peter Jellitsch has found a new approach to representing spatial realities, both seen and unseen. With his project Bleecker Street Documents, he has taken to task the idea of a temporal-spatial condition that permeates all of our urban airspace. Bleecker Street Documents, titled for the location of the project, rigorously analyzes and explores the micro-measurements of atmospheric change activated by wireless data networks.

Excerpt from „Bleecker Street Dialogue“, a conversation with Peter Jellitsch and Joseph Becker.

2011 - 2013 STB Series

STB, the title of a series of drawings Peter Jellitsch initiated in 2011, is an acronym for Stream Body Drawings, a motion algorithm software generally used by architects for simulating wind directions and air forces that occur around high-rise buildings. These drawings of nebulous forms are obtained through a rigorous method that Jellitsch elaborated using computer screens broadcasting different scientific digital patterns of radio frequencies, air streams or data clouds.

Excerpt from „Weather Conditions“, a text by Sébastien Pluot.

2013 Fokus Sammlung

Peter Jellitsch is an exponent of a young generation whose perception of reality has undergone a radical change, due to new technology, and who quite naturally spread out their fields of work and ideas in new dimensions. This expansion of traditional boundaries, together with a critical observation of reality, are prerequisites for his work, and characterise the artist’s interdisciplinary, integrative way of thinking as well as his methods and techniques, which on the one hand are scientific and strictly mathematical, and on the other absolutely artistic and aesthetic. The pictorial result is merely one aspect of Jellitch’s comprehensive spectrum of activities. It is, however, the immediate, compelling result which, detached from the intellectual, conceptual process, convincingly gains in autonomy.

Over recent years, virtual space has increasingly become a field of experiment in art. If initially the new techniques and networks were used as tools, today this space itself stands at our disposal, understood as a relevant dimension of reality and determined not only by matter but, in this context, also by invisible elements and systems. What Peter Jellitsch finds interesting are phenomena which exist not physically and consistently, but functionally – such as fields of electromagnetic waves, current patterns, or the swarm behaviour of birds and fish, as in the present work “STB/S 16“.

The artist is not concerned with creating a copy of the digital image of a piece of basic scientific research; his interest, as he puts it, is in “establishing a dialogue between virtual processes and the actual physical space”. The artist approaches electronic simulation through drawing by hand, transferring it, by means of the potential of his physical body, into an analogue result, thus concretising the digital information of the virtual sphere.
