For over forty years, German-Czech artist Michael Bielicky (born 1954 in Prague, lives and works in Karlsruhe) has been creating innovative works in the fields of photography, video and net-based installation. His works are always in dialogue with new technical developments and range from the media-historical deep time to the magical mathematical practices of the medieval cabbalists: idiosyncratic hybrids that belong to both an analog and digital world and operate in the border area between real and virtual space. In doing so, the media artist initiates a critical engagement with the nature of technology, its material and immaterial meanings, and its influence on our perception and actions. The book Perpetuum mobile offers the first overview of Bielicky's diverse oeuvre. The layout was developed by the artist himself and integrates the experimental images into a graphic "stream of consciousness".
