Christoph Walter Pirker (1989, Judenburg) is a PhD-in-arts student based in Graz, Austria. Furthermore, he is trained as an architect, musician, and visual artist. His transdisciplinary interest is based on study and work experiences in Graz, Berlin, and Copenhagen. The experimental and research-based production of knowledge within drawing, painting, score, and text, as well as the re-definition of visuality plays an essential role in his work.

Analogue landscape


Approaches to the lost space of the indefinite

Analogue landscape


Approaches to the lost space of the indefinite
Let me bleed in caressing the term; let me suffer in sleeping the imagination; let me live in forming the indefinite.

This work is a call for a new architectural form. An artistic tool that attempts, in a reality of superficial accumulation, to invert all superficiality and to add a new plastic thought to the traditional notion of space.

At the same time, this call focuses on the emergence of the new architectural form. When the modernistic concept of an ideal, explainable, and finite object is relinquished and instead the object is regarded as a succession of differences and intensities where each part defines a particular world of its own, then the artistic investigation of such an object lies within a deeper, indefinable notion.

Central to these thoughts is the line: at first as the literal line within the architectural drawing, but later as a metaphor for any spatial concretion. A line that is understood as a borderline between the visible and the invisible, the real and the virtual. A line which is the most original tool of the architect. A line which needs to be thought and constructed.
