Field (Rainer Kohlberger)
In this app, the iPads camera reacts to light and colors in the environment and translates them in an aesthetic way in tones, sounds, and geometrical patterns. Formally speaking, Kohlberger draws on concrete art. The term concrete art was first coined in 1924 by Dutch painter, Theo van Doesburg, before being programmat- ically defined a few years later, in 1930, in the founding manifesto of the group Art Concrete for a direction in art the ideal foundation of which was anchored in mathematics and geometry. It is not “abstract” in the proper sense since it does not extract from what already exists in material reality; on the contrary, it rather materializes intellectual content, possessing no symbolic significance, and is more or less generated from geometrical con- struction.
