Robert Willim creates artworks that explore imaginaries and emerging technologies. His art resides in the borderland next to his practices as a scholar of digital cultures. The artworks are used as something he calls art probes. These are used to engender inspiration and material for further research. The works are often based on the development and transmutation of concepts.
His research primarily deals with issues of digital and material culture. Since 2018 he works with the project Connected Homes and Distant Infrastructures, which examines the ways emerging technologies are entwined with people’s everyday life and how technological imaginaries unfold.
