The size of the C-Print on Alu-Dibond of 180x120cm is the re-materialized counterpart to the immersive AV light rooms that we set up during performances. The gloss of the surface of the C-prints corresponds to projections and monitors.
The picture “Destroyed5c9039f0-db77” from STATION ROSE was taken in Lockdown 2 in November 2020 in the studio in Vienna. On the STR sofa, on which the first STReams 2020 also took place from March, I regularly paint new pictures on the iPad with a pen, often left-handed. As a left-hander, I had to neglect this side in school, I rarely used it in tennis & ball games. The left hand is now used again on the iPad.
This painted picture “Destroyed5c9039f0-db77” is animated by me in various apps, also destroyed, & spun on in the movement, in order to finally merge with the sound in augmented reality with the real space & into another dimension to expand. GD’s music was created at the same time in the same place.

The augmented image “110%” by STATION ROSE was a central statement in the STATION ROSE installation “PiXL Playroom” at UNPAINTED lab 3.0 2016. 110% basically also refers to the commitment that digital audio-visual artists have to make by they are challenged daily by content – in the translation with excessive technology. It also refers to the challenge that the Viennese artist couple STATION ROSE had to master with the fascinatingly desolate, fragile installation space.
110% also relates very much to NOW & affects everyone – where the lockdown is currently completely turning the real world inside out, where much that has become obsolete is erased and the chance must be used to create a new, better world with 110% commitment. This now applies to everyone! Gary Danner once again gave 110% in composing the piece of music.

The reduced OpArt elements are radically designed in black and white in order to allow them to hit brightly coloured blocks aggressively. The play of colours with modest black and white is drawn far out into the real space in augmented reality, accompanied by driving music.

The webcasts are STATION ROSE’s answer to the COVID-19 lockdown. When we started STReaming in Berlin in 1999, it was for us a logical consequence and further development of LIVE performance in clubs, galleries, and museums, as well as a move towards the more personal. In the intimate atmosphere of the “home studio”, live @home, the tension of the outdoor live situation was eliminated without losing the dynamism of a live performance. You could use the entire studio for one performance! In contrast to outdoor live performance, you also had more time to speak to the audience (who were present online) and let them be there while an audiovisual composition was being created.
The recorded STReams were often reused, in the style of STATION ROSE: stills were turned into works of art as distillates (like the picture “Webcast 78” here), sounds were published on records (see the series of “live @home” – Vinyls on Gunafa Records), recordings became the TV series “Best of Webcasting” on ARD / hr television, and excerpts were put online (6 years before YouTube). The camera became an important tool: it showed us working on the workstations, and filmed Elisa Rose speaking to the audience. Verbal statements became a new part of STR’s art. These are samples of announcements with an emphasis on repetition.
Elisa Rose trains the precise setting of the voice, including effects. It’s a <shouting into cyberspace>; the voice as another digitized instrument is its own building block in the larger whole of STR art. This painting was shown for the first time at Art Frankfurt 2000. By 2002 we have already broadcast 200 live STReams from our studio in Frankfurt. This picture is a snapshot of the show No. 78, a historical moment, so to speak. Women and technology: Elisa as an artist seems relaxed at the microphone. She was actually acting in front of and behind the cameras.
The entire technical park had to be controlled by Gary Danner & her in the live performance situation. We are here in 2000, 5 years before the existence of Youtube. A LIVE STReam at that time was also to master the encoder & the server in terms of soft and hardware. Incidentally, STATION ROSE contributed to this art fair, which no longer exists, in 2001 with the extensive installation “Webcast Lounge” with performance, discussions with guests (e.g. with Daniel Birnbaum) & LIVE streaming directly from the art fair.

Digital Land Art
STATION ROSE premiered the LIVE performance “”Natura Urbana Microscopica_0719” at the Haus der Kunst, Munich, at “A Midsummer Night” in July 2019. For this, the artists worked once again with nature. Nature has long played an important role in their digital art. They coined the terms “Digital Land Art”, “Urban Digital Land Art”, and “Nature Is Cool/ NiC”. For the House of Art, Elisa Rose used a microscope live as well as worked with various iPad apps. In “VR_Fuchsie_8899,” she used a fuchsia as the source material that was hunted by apps before it landed in the sequencer. Finally, the work experiences its audio-visual climax in the augmentation.
Ars Electronica 2019. The work was shown by STATION ROSE for the first time in September 2019 at Ars Electronica Festival, Linz, Austria, in the solo exhibition “U > N>I<T>A #Urbana Natura in_hancing_The_Augmented at Galerie Hofkabinett. The music for augmentation is an experimental soundtrack in which the compositional stylistic means of the dub (slow tempo, deep basses, repetitive percussion) are weaved into a very own form with chord and harmony sequences influenced by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The augmented work 311218-grellRed1 was created in 2019, and deals on the visual level with new surfaces, stored between 2D & 3D. It is a question of which STRukturen & Patterns are currently relevant to the artists and how deeply they encounter which (real) environments in augmentation. In the exhibition “When Art Expands Reality” at the CAS Campus Karlsruhe, the spatial expansion of 311218-grellRed1 meets a computer milled shadow image. Grelle pastel tones are in the overdrawing the conscious color choice of this work, in the colored extreme it beats on edges in real space. 311218-grellRed1 demands space-on the wall & in the room in front of it to unfold.
The music was created exclusively on the mobile phone, with free music apps. A minimalist punk attitude is not only consistently taken into account aesthetically, an attitude that comes out and sounds again and again at STATION ROSE.

Amiga Blue Red is an augmented work by STATION ROSE from 2019, which was created for the exhibition When Art Expands Reality at CAS Campus, Karlsruhe, Germany.
Based on the STATION ROSE occupation with their early digital work (1987-1996), a current work was created, which was regenerated from the new work originally captured at the Commodore Amiga Computer in 1988. This was drawn by Elisa Rose in the program DPaint. The work was created for an installation and performance at the Museum Ludwig Köln in 1988. The image is currently still available on floppy disk, and has now been transported to the present time with an emulator. From there, it was sent in the iPad through various apps, and put together in several 3-d layers in the Artivive app. The image is fanned out in space, and gives another 3D level besides the real world; the reduced aesthetics of the 256 colors remain intact.
Gary Danner’s music composition is Jazz à la STATION ROSE: complex, without any compelling rhythm, harmoniously layered, … and a bit stressful.

STATION ROSE presents Amiga Red Arrows, a digital print. Based on the STATION ROSE occupation with their early digital work (1987-1996), a current augmented work was created, which was regenerated from the new work originally captured at the Commodore Amiga Computer in 1988. This was drawn by Elisa Rose in the program Dpaint. The work was created for an installation and performance at the Museum Ludwig Köln in 1988.

Working with audio-visual loops is an important STATION ROSE moment. The augmented aluminium dibonds are perfect for playing these LOOPS in a more or less endless way. In conjunction with another player such as iPad, Beamer & Bluetooth Box, there is also a room installation. In 1988, when STATION ROSE was founded, Gary Danner & Elisa Rose were fascinated by the then emerging minimalist soundtracks of the computer games. This composition is (perhaps unconsciously) a reminiscence of this particular time, when the Internet was still virtually uninhabited, and electronic music was largely a niche for lovers.

Amiga-whiteWheat2 is a new augmented work by STATION ROSE from 2019, which was created for the exhibition “When Art Expands Reality” at the CAS Campus Karlsruhe, Germany. Based on the current STATION ROSE occupation with their early digital work (1987-1996), a newly generated work was created, which is based on the Dpaint picture originally created on the Commodore Amiga in 1988. This was created for an installation and performance at Museum Ludwig in 1988. The image is still available on floppy disk, and was transported to the present time with an emulator. From there, it was sent in the iPad through various apps, and put together in several 3-D layers in the Artivive App. The image is fanned out in space, and gives another 3-D level next to the real world.
PIXEL HOME by STATION ROSE is a Digital Land Art project. It was a media sculpture set up in nature, in the Danube mountains of Upper Austria, in Gary Danner’s birthplace of Ottensheim in the summer of 2015. The STATION ROSE theme was “Digital Land Art-Digital Natives lived a reduced live-style in the countryside.” The outer skin consisted, among other things, of digital fabric prints, generated from audiovisual compositions performed by Gary Danner & Elisa Rose in live performances at the PIXEL HOME. The technical equipment was deliberately reduced, consisting of projectors, monitors, sound PA & iPads. Projected was planted in the surrounding meadows, the roof with succulents. Over the period of months, the PIXEL HOME grew rhizomatically with the Danube jungle, with some live jam sessions created live on the iPads on site.
Next Step: In the summer of 2016, this media sculpture was transplanted into urban nature and placed in the courtyard of the KunstHausWien Museum as PIXEL HOME 2.0. Here it struggled with extreme city heat, with urban environment. Various events and performances took place here, including Link Art Center, Fabio Paris, Brescia/I.
Next Step: With no buyer turning up in time at the end of the summer, the sculpture was destroyed. Now it exists anew in this artwork in augmented reality, morphing with the new environment. It is planned by STATION ROSE to import this into VR as well.
The music was created in 2014 during the installation of the “Pixel Home” in the great outdoors of the Upper Austrian Danube meadows, where continuous live improvisation was carried out. This live recording of the composition, which was created with the most minimal technical means on the tablet, is uncut.
This work could be seen in 2019 in the exhibition “When Art Expands Reality Expands Reality” at the CAS Campus, Karlsruhe, Germany, and Ars Electronica, gallery Hofkabinett 2019
