The artist duo AROTIN & SERGHEI create a universe of colour and light, which is in constant metamorphosis through superposition, fusion and division. Through the combination of techniques such as drawing, composition and montage, they integrate elements of sound, architecture, as well as philosophical and scientific concepts into their unique digital works. In cooperation with inventors, new media and materials, the works emerge at the pulse of time.

A major work by AROTIN & SERGHEI, "Infinite Screen", explores the idea of transgression of the surface of the illusion and infinity in today's world. Several stages of this work-in progress have been shown so far at the Venice Biennale in 2015, the Ars Electronica 2014-17, the Fondation Beyeler and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna in 2016. The exhibition "Metamorphosis" in the baroque halls of the W&K - Palais Schönborn-Batthyány now shows for the first time an overview of the works on which the large-scale project "Infinite Screen" is based: Drawings, pictures and new monumental works in an innovative technology, which for the first time enables the creation of unique digital works.
