1n0ut is an artist collective that works both collaboratively and individually on a variety of video and interactive art projects with a focus on generating synesthetic experiences. The artists mix analogue and digital processes in their work to achieve a perfect aesthetic blend which can be understood as a reflection upon all of our lives. Cross-disciplinary by nature, their approaches reach from a self programmed real-time video montage system based on Robert Praxmarer’s ongoing PhD work to the charming photo stills and composed video works from Reinhold Bidner. Both like to think in shades of grey - between black and white - which gives the audience an experience of fuzziness, fault and, despite algorithmic perfection, harmony.
1n0ut works, exhibits and performs on an international level in locations ranging from contemporary art museums, nightclubs to classical concerts and has been awarded with various prizes.
