Atelier Nord focuses on new media art, with new forms and new content – especially technology-intensive art. These fields are characterized by instability in relation to production, distribution and how they are communicated. Atelier Nord’s engagement with new media art aims to establish suitable conditions for the production and distribution of new media art, an increased understanding of these art forms, as well as a strengthening of the critical discussion within the field. New media art must be integrated into the established art system in such a way that its distinctive experiences and references become an integrated part of the art world.

Living Through the Landscape
The Norwegian part of the project will encompass a 10-day expedition/workshop with artists from all three participating countries in the county of Finnmark in northern Norway from 20 to 30 September, 2015. The focus of the expedition will be on mining activity in the region and its effect on the local landscape.

Norwegian artist Tommy Høvik works in different media, and in his installations, he often a combines the personal, the existential and the poetic. He deconstructs found materials and narratives to lay down a trail to new ones, in search of unseen outcomes, or to see existing outcomes anew, often shifting between the past, present, and future, and even to metaphysical scenarios. In his recent works, he has been exploring sustainability in its various aspects.
