Tyyne Claudia Pollmann
Retrieving, processing, tracking, and tracing data—including its instant translation into images—has evolved into standard actions performed with any available data aimed at transforming, modifying, and adjusting data for visualized results. Treated as fragments, aspects, parameters, and details of complex actions and behaviors, data is isolated, reduced, idealized, and presented for further investigation. German artist Tyyne Pollmann’s results show a smooth and direct translatability and underscores the act of translation through tracing in Tracelation. Leave a trace, the ongoing installation since 2013, at the Charité University of Medicine Berlin art gallery, “tracelates” raw data into images while sending the trajectories back to their originators. The images from these interactions form the core of this publication. Tyyne Pollman, the author and curator of Tracelation, is a conceptual artist and professor of anatomy and morphology in the area of Artistic Foundations. Additonal essays and texts by Miya Yoshida, Warren Neidich, Ralf Reulke, Wolfram Liebermeister, Alan N. Shapiro, and others are included.
