Peter Vogel’s art is based on insights from physics and brain research, areas to which he devoted himself at the beginning of his career. The aim of his work is to actively involve the viewer in the works and to create an interaction. For this purpose he constructs sculptures, wall objects and installations from electronic components. These react to the movements and sound impulses of the viewer through sensors. The tendency to participate in the work of art is already developing in constructive-concrete and kinetic art. Through sensual-aesthetic experiences, the viewer’s experiences should go beyond pure contemplation.
