Born In Chile 1985, South american multimedia artist.
Klawitter's artwork plays with the fact that as observers of nature, we only perceive a microscopic fraction of what is really out there.
Our senses have a physical end, but reality has almost no limit. It continues in fractal patterns to dimensions we can't even imagine.
As William Blake said, it is possible
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
Technology has become, since the origins of mankind a tool to extend our limitations, a way to externalize our senses, a third eye to see through the veil of blackness that reality seems, looked upon with naked eyes.
Klawitter combines an engineering workflow plus studies of architecture and a bachelor's degree in Fine arts, to build functional sculptural machines with the objective to see where our senses can't.
Using Internet as an externalized brain, Arduino micro controllers, hacked equipment and a heuristic technique based purely in trial and error method, Phillip creates machines to register and film the growing of micro planets.
The end result is multimedia content varying from instalation, processed still imagery and hybrid timelapse video.
The micro planets are grown in collaboration with a startup biotechnology lab.
Since 2014 Klawitter has been working with Biotic Solutions, a startup biotechnology Laboratory to create experimental artwork.
