Peter Jellitsch & Theodore Darst work within simulated realities and spaces using both analog and digital processes. Both artists observe, process, and transcribe intangible elements onto perceptible representations. Jellitsch is concerned with the physical process of visualizing the invisible virtual structures that are prevalent in everyday life. For his Data Drawings, he uses his studio’s Wifi bandwidth to generate data that becomes the basis of his hand-drawn diagrammatic landscapes. Darst creates imaginative digital environments with their own internal logic, resulting in self-governing visual systems. Collaging fragments of personal narratives through the endless variables of the digital interface, he makes his realm visibly possible to the viewer through his video works and installation.

Peter Jellitsch is an artist living and working in Vienna. He holds an M.Arch from the Academy of fine Arts in Vienna where he has studied Art & Architecture. In 2014 he will be Artist in Residence at the MAK–Schindler House in Los Angeles. Jellitsch has received the Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky Award and the Outstanding Artist Award by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Art and Education. His work is part of permanent collections at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and the MMKK Carinthian Museum of Modern Art.

Theodore Darst is an artist based in Chicago, IL. His videos, prints, and interactive digital environments have been exhibited at numerous venues including 319 Scholes (NYC), (online), Jean Albano (Chicago), The Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), and The Museum of the Moving Image (NYC). He was a 2013 HATCH Projects Artist in Residence at the Chicago Artists Coalition and is a 2016 MFA candidate at Bard.
