Experiencing the Invisible
Artist, Fabian Oefner, was born in 1984 in Switzerland.
The intention of Fabian Oefner’s explorations is to convert the usually invisible powers of the universe i.e. scent, sound, gravity, taste, the passing of time time, into visual art experiences.
Collaborating with clients including Ferrari, Bose, Heineken, LG, and Peugeot Design, Oefner creates innovative multi platform campaigns to enhance product branding.
The lens of Oefner’s vision is art. His Disintegrating Series” is a suite of images of high performance cars apparently blowing apart. The series explores the relationship of time and reality, ultimately creating a visually rich rendition of a moment that never existed.
Oefner’s ongoing fascination with our perception of time produced the “Black Hole Series” that became the centerpiece of 2015 World Science Festival Gala celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Einstein’s Birthday and Theory of Relativity. The “Black Hole Series”, similar to many of Oefner’s projects, began in his Studio with no camera involved: his process: concept, tested by experiment, made tangible by design and photography.
Oefner’s collaboration with Peugeot Design Lab produced the installation t“Field of Sound”, a kinetic sculpture using more than 5000 Plexiglas blades, moving to the sound of a piano. “Field of Sound” is the tangible transformation of complex theories into interactive art.
Published internationally in The Washington Post, WIRED, The New Scientist, STERN, The Huffington Post and BBC Online, Oefner’s TED talk received upwards of two million visits.
