Nils Hommel 

Born in 1981 in Germany, studied engieneering and wrote his diploma thesis on room acoustics.
As an art autodidact, he experiments with the aliveness of objects and reflects their inner relationship between matter and spirit.

Inspired by searching this inner vitality of objects, he takes different points of view, such as interaction between a human beeing and an object or – its reaction to the medium of light and sound. Driven by manipulating the object’s construction, structure and texture, its inner vitality happens while investigating the essentiality of materials.

The appearance of coincidence tranfered from nature into art installations – is an important topic to his work. Both during the creation process of a work of art and later, while a finished object “is in operation”.
Different types of objects and their correspondence are examined, composed and invented. For example based on living and dead trees, plants, cars, furniture, concrete, stones, robots, haze, tools, carpets and entire rooms.
Environment and objects merge into sculptural and partially animated installations.

The artist uses sounds he produces in his own recording studio and mixes these, in some works, with the inherent sound of an installation. In addition to sound, light is another key tool to the art of Nils Hommel. In earlier works, he often dealt with photography of light and space.
Since last year, he concentrated on converting his grandparents´ house into a walk-in art project called:

“Das Haus Gerät 1739/5000”

ニールス・ホンメル

1981年にドイツで生まれ, 工学を学び卒業論文では室内音響学について書く。
独学で美術を学び、物の素材と魂の関係性について実験を行ない、また色々な視点から人と物の関係や光と音の反応を照らし合わせて見ている。
周囲と対象物が一つになりそれにイルミネーションなどの動きが加わったりとして、彼の作品では偶然がとても大切なテーマだと言えるだろう。
また、独自の録音スタジオで作り出した音も作品の一部となって体験できるようになっている。
それに加わり、過去に光と空間の写真を撮っていたのもあって、光にもこだわりがある。
去年からは祖父母の家をウォークイン式の芸術作品に転換するのに集中し、それを直訳で「用具の家」と名つけた。
