About this book:
Synthesis and Nullification is the first retrospective covering the career of Stefan Sonvilla-Weiss as a visual artist, graphic designer, multimedia developer, writer, researcher, educator and visionary conceptualist. Synthesis and Nullification is used here metaphorically, as it stands for a complex and wide ranging theoretical and practical exploration in visual culture.
The book is divided into four main chapters, which bundle in chronological order artwork, knowledge visualizations, installations, photographs and multimedia work.
It contains numerous previously unpublished texts and artwork from the last two decades, allowing discovery of a whole universe of textual and visual material.
Stefan Sonvilla-Weiss is a professor in the department of Art at Aalto University/ School of Arts, Design and Architecture since 2003.
In his research he tries to find answers to how real and virtual space interactions can generate novel forms of communicative, creative and social practices in global connected communities. His international activities as speaker, lecturer, invited scholar and researcher brought him to many institutions around the world, for example Oxford University–Internet Institute, Seoul National University–Design Talks, National Institute of Multimedia Education Tokyo, University of the Arts London, K.U. Leuven, University Hamburg, Bilgi University Istanbul, San Francisco de Quito University.
He is the author of (IN)VISIBLE. Learning to Act in the Metaverse (Springer, 2008) and he has edited Mashup Cultures (Springer, 2010) and (e)Pedagogy Design – Visual Knowledge Building (Peter Lang, 2005), among others.
