Tomas Penc’s artwork draws from psychology and symbolism used in advertising industry, visual art references, and popular culture signifiers and the ways they determine meaning and frame of perception in the current world. It is concerned with the unresolved relationship we have with the present day technology as the “new reality” through which this perceived world is operated, both in abstract and material terms. The approach to the work is open-ended and idea driven, the resulting artwork is usually project based and often site-specific.
The long-term aim of the research is to include the audience in the so called “participation mystique”, incorporating kinetic sculpture elements, sound, interactive installation and 3D animation/projection.
Studio and art residencies, other project participation.
