"Kogler's oeuvre is dominated by the increasing virtualization of our living space. His main motif is the ant, with its symmetrical ornamental body in its organized labyrinth-living."

"The Austrian multimedia artist Peter Kogler is a pioneer computer-generated art. With an impressive 360-degree multi-projection of the two-time documenta participant in the Schirn creates an illusionistic space by 12 projectors who commandeers the viewer completely. Lines of a uniform grid lose their fixed coordinates and stretch out into a play of amor-pher figures. All elements are projected in a per-manent transformation of their specific structure and bring the room to vibrate visually. In the vibration of the room sound mix elements of sound artist Franz Pomassl. The sound produced by home-made devices and instruments for the measurement technology and other research fields, in Kogler's installation into a sculptural experience. The viewer imagines himself surrounded by a super-structure, the space in which he stands, in its present form by systematically dissolves impulses: he loses the ground under your feet"
