Mission Statement

Spinnwerk Elevation Labor

Spinnwerk Elevation Labor is a laboratory of ideas, a place for new media culture.

Using tools like VR (for a co-working space), AI (for a better understanding), blockchain (for a fast research archive), 5G (for fast transmission of data or organizing conferences), we seek to provide rich additions to the existing relational mechanism of today’s society.

Our projects are inviting machines to be part of a creative dialogue that recasts data as the raw material of the future.

We’re honored to be part of a new generation of creatives who live a modern renaissance.

Spinnwerk is the creator of JARVIS, the first AI curator in history and Spinnwerk Gallery, the first independent art place in VR.

JARVIS

Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel Studios, 2015

Spinnwerk created JARVIS, the first AI curator in history. JARVIS uses AI to learn by itself from databases of universities, galleries, festivals, institutions generating the initial concept as the “key structure” for its curatorial choices. At the end of the process, JARVIS selects participants/artists/creators for a festival, gallery, biennial based on his knowledge and write the concept.

JARVIS was appointed for the first time as a curator by Bucharest Biennale 2022 which will become the first biennial ever to be curated by AI. Bucharest Biennale also decided to use Spinnwerk Gallery, becoming the first biennial curated by AI in VR.

JARVIS was appointed as curator of other future exhibitions and has the ambition to curate important events, in a similar undertaking as a human curator, but in a more democratic and more spectacular process.

Our Spinnwerk Elevation Labor puts the audience in the middle of the story by means of creating a deep-immersive experience determining a type of emotion only high-end technology can generate nowadays.

Our team is not formed by code writers, designers, animators. Our team is based on well known contemporary artists exhibited in renowned festivals, galleries, biennials, and museums with a high combined knowledge of code writing, design, and animation working with state-of-the-art technologies to show your beautiful and amazing story in a journey, which the observer will never forget and always will crave to come back to experience again.

Great stories are timeless. Set a meeting with us and we can show you what we can do for your organization/business/product.

Spinnwerk Gallery puts the audience in the middle of the story by means of creating a deep-immersive experience determining a type of emotion only high-end technology can generate now. Amazing projects where people react and feel completely different after experiencing our immersive narrative.

The shows are not a projection of a physical event, it is the first independent curated gallery in VR. An experience that is unique for spectators.

The Spinnwerk Project Pop-Up Space is a physical space in Vienna where we lanch products, exhibitions, organize debates, or meetings with people willing to know us.
We have standalone VR headsets for the public and visitors to use along with a special design of the space.
An amazing transborder experience.
