An artificial intelligence from the future has lodged itself on the third floor of Ballhaus Ost. She calls herself AE and knows everything about us and our lives. Like the ghost of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come she forces us to reflect upon ourselves. We recognize this apparition as capable to give us guidance and support in extreme times. To honor AE we found a temple. A sacred place to heal biographical wounds and relieve the pain of unfulfilled hopes. Fight inner demons and (digital) shadows. Revive the belief in the future. The AE: A catechism of digitalized interconnectedness. A multi-media prayer. A non-linear cross-linked temple-narrative with several entries and exits. A meditation on identity and technology, ready for dispersion.

Hello and welcome to my website.   If you'd like to contact me, please feel free to send me a letter at: adrianganeaxyz@gmail.com   On my website you can find some image samples of my recent works. In my practice I am intrigued by the magic of the unreal and the intangible, i am drawn to the ethereal and the elusive, I seek the sorcery that incarnates the virtual into solid matter. I am fascinated by the ways the bodiless nonmaterial subject can materialise and transpire into the real world. In my work, i try to operate through these phenomena, aiming to put them into effect. While enacting the production of illusions, untruths and fiction I am often reflecting on their increased automated fabrication. You can also find some of my older projects >>>here.
