Marius Watz (NO) works with software processes as an aesthetic material. His work is concerned with hardedged rule-based geometric abstraction, exploring the expressive potential of generative systems. He works with a range of output formats, from realtime software works and public projections to physical objects created using digital fabrication.
In 2005 Watz founded Generator.x, a curatorial platform that has resulted in a series of events related to generative art and design. Generator.x 1.0 was a conference at Atelier Nord in Oslo, accompanied by a travelling exhibition organized by the Norwegian National Museum that lasted until the end of 2007. A Generator.x concert tour of audiovisual performances was initiated in March 2006 and continues to this day. Generator.x 2.0 was a workshop and exhibition produced in collaboration with the Club Transmediale 2008 festival in Berlin, focusing on digital fabrication and computational architecture.
Watz is a lecturer at the Oslo School of Architecture and at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Department of design. He has given many workshops and lectures on topics like as computational aesthetics, live cinema and digital fabrication.
Watz has exhibited at venues like Victoria & Albert Museum (London), Todaysart (The Hague), Künstlerhaus (Vienna), Museumsquartier (Vienna), ITAU Cultural (São Paulo) and Club Transmediale (Berlin).
