Textsynthese is a continuous project by Eva Beierheimer and Miriam Laussegger.
We are interested in the role of text in visual art and are playing with relationship between art and its description.
Starting point of Textsynthese are sentences selected out of various books. Put together these sentences/phrases formulate a new text. The new constellation of the sentences results in a new context and a new meaning.
This new text is used as “exhibition-text” and gives us the instructions for building art works/installations. Since objects are built after the text (generated through textsythesis), it inverts the conventional way of translation from the piece of art to the text relating to the work.
