7E Guest Artist - Peter Vogel :: Godfather of electronic sculpture
Peter Vogel is a truly innovative German artist born in 1937. He pioneered the idea of turning circuits into sculptures. Formally trained in physics, Peter says his works are “dependent on an active observer” and that “form follows function.” In the ‘60s, he became interested in early electronic music experiments with, synthesizers, tape loops and musique concrète. And, in the late '70s he started experimenting with sound structures which are “walls of sound” consisting of electronic components, speakers, and sometimes sensors and synthesizers which react to the viewer.
What a beautiful aesthetic created from electronic components that all of us take for granted daily. We love Peter’s work!
