Fallen Angels, 2019
AR experience for HoloLens
In his current multimedia project Fallen Angels, Rudolph creates a stylistic fusion that can be referred to as Neon-Baroque, due to the distinctive figures that appear in the work. The figures in question are angels, whose form is a fascinating symbiosis of 17th century frescoes paired with the bright digital effects of the VR program Google TiltBrush. This program allows the artist to use his own hands to paint three-dimensionally in virtual reality, then he introduces these paintings into a space of augmented reality. Experienced with an iPad or a HoloLens headset, these immaterial works float as Holograms through the exhibition space of the gallery interacting with Rudolph's oil paintings. The final artwork is an immersive multi-sensory experience, combining oil paintings, augmented reality and music resulting in a Wagner-meets-Hollywood Gesamtkunstwerk. But in contrast to the perfect illusions of Hollywood, Rudolph's work allows glitches and cracks in the performance giving us an idea of the fragility of our own construction of reality.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Dennis Rudolph (born 1979 in Berlin, Germany) is a multi media artist working in painting, graphics and Virtual and Augmented Reality. His artistic practice derives its primal momentum from a melancholic reworking of the heritage of western culture. Conceiving contemporary art in relation to this backward gaze, Rudolph picks up topics associated with failed utopian visions.
