PIERRE ENGELHARD
● online

Pierre is a Swiss/Peruvian London-based visual artist and digital director.

He uses emerging technologies and merges them with analogue tools to deliver new forms of art that respond to contemporary demands set by the post-digital era we are living in. 

Concerned with our rapidly changed and changing relationships with digital technologies and art forms, Pierre’s work is a mix between embodied media and mixed reality; between visual, haptic, auditory, and kinaesthetic media experiences, with the intention of achieving new perceptions through radical experiences.

Ultimately, Pierre’s work spans installations, performances, moving images and photography.

Pierre graduated with a master’s in Digital Direction at the Royal College of Art (RCA) and is currently a lecturer in immersive media, mixed reality and motion graphics at the University of the Arts London (UAL) and Brunel University.

Pierre’s work has been exhibited in Cromwell Place (London), IKLECTIK (London), OneRoom Gallery (London), RichMix (London), Milton Court (London), Bright Festival (Leipzig), Media Art Nexus (Singapore), SomaRumor (Sao Paulo) and Munich Creative Business Week (Munich).

07 Revolve - HOME
2022





Format: Animation
        02:45 minutes
        On a loop
       
Revolve is a looping animation made in collaboration with sound designer Nicola Perikhanyan.

It portrays a novel perception of death.
Taking inspiration from Eastern culture, the animation showcases an abstract representation of life and death according to Buddhist beliefs.
The animation is divided into three sections:

Underworld, Life and Enlightenment.

It has the intention of being watched as a loop to accentuate the idea of Samsara.

Revolve is a collaborative project with the Royal College of Art, Imperial College and Nanyang Technological University curated by Aura Murillo. The film exists in two formats: an audiovisual installation and a regular film created for a 15x2 meters long screen for Media Art Nexus.

It premiered at OneRoom Gallery in London on the 20 of January 2022.
