About Enkidu rankX

Franco-German media artist Enkidu rankX [ınˈkiːdu ræŋk eks] was born 1972 in Saarbrücken / Germany. After his studies in Belgium he settled down in Berlin in 1996 where he is working and living up to this day. His work is comprised of video-art, glitch-art, installations and interaction with dance and theatre. “My art deals with issues such as relational miscommunication, the effect of technology on the human condition and the loss of identity that comes with the advent of virtualization an simulation.”

Dear Friends,

I will be showing a video-realtime installation in the exhibition mentioned above. The opening will be on the 9th of June 2009 at 6pm. There will also be a workshop where I introduce working realtime with PureData for visual artists (on the 14th @ 3:30pm).
On the 9th, there will be a DJ and a VJ (me, sic) and it should be very enjoyable. Exhibition and workshops, everything is free of course. Please come in great numbers. cu there, hopefully, if you can make it.

in Weimar with Price Mio and Louise Wagner

We went to Weimar and took a very decent part in the background of the opening of the exhibition “Weimar 1919 – Chancen einer Republik“. It was fun, sadly there’s no documentation, so you have to take my word for it 😉
I worked there with Prince Mio and Louise Wagner, they where dancing and I installed an interactive video projection for/on them.

Enkidu @ OBA – Amsterdam

Hey y’all, after drowning in work for the last 3 month, I have made a theatrical show @ Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam (oba.nl). To be honest, it was very much below my expectation, still got to see some very interesting stuff there. I will post some shots from it later on but here is Sulamiths pics for starters: link.
