Richard Kriesche explores systems of perception. With his perennial focus on the challenges of new technology and science, he is a key figure in contemporary art. His works, which often have a cultural political background, have always been at the forefront of media art.

Richard Kriesche. Capital + Code, 2008
In his Capital + Code exhibition, Richard Kriesche homes in on interconnections, focusing on the structure of phenomena. In the Aesthetics of Capital light installation (2008) especially created for the Kunsthaus Graz, he bathes everything in a technoid computer-blue light. The installation uses eight projectors and visualization software (which also sees use in the money markets) to project market-type fluctuations on the interior wall of the building. The constantly changing images are real-time responses to search questions on Google involving different combinations of the words art, work, capital and freedom. The images are an indication of an elusive global state.
