Kilian Ochs was born in 1980, in Pforzheim (Germany). He grew up in a family of workers and technicians. His early interest for the reality of pure logic, combined with a need for distinct expression, brought him to writing, and in 2002, with the age of 22, he was ready to start his studies in the Philosophy department of Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe. However, feeling the urge to get closer to the obstruction of material, he decided to change the department after one semester, and studied Media Art. He graduated in 2010.

For several years now, he has been dealing with an own theory of systems, and with the challenge to shape systematic procedures into material. With “Sphere 12/16”, one of his latest projects, he eventually built his first object which both theoretically and aesthetically achieves the goal of melting logical thoughts and resistant material together.

The artist lives and works in Karlsruhe (Germany) and Tallinn (Estonia).

Artist Statement

I believe that there is a reality of systems, which is the counterpart of the reality of usefulness in an anthropocentric sense. The systematic reality is vital and self-referential.
