Founded in 1997, Assocreation is an artist collective based in Vienna (Austria) and Ann Arbor, Michigan (USA). Its members work anonymously on a wide range of interactive installations and urban interventions. The group is best known for its award-winning interactive installations that often manipulate the ground the public walks on, such as the telematic sidewalk Bump (Prix Ars Electronica Distinction 2001) or the street video game Solar Pink Pong (Excellence Award at the Japan Media Arts Festival 2016).
Assocreation’s work has been shown internationally at art festivals, museums, galleries, film festivals, conferences and computer expos, including the Bienal de Valencia, The Vienna Künstlerhaus, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, CENTRALE for contemporary art in Bruxelles, AVIFF Art Film Festival in Cannes, Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, CeBIT in Hannover, EXPO 2017 in Astana, TEI’15 in Stanford, as well as in the streets of, among others, New York, Detroit, Sao Paulo, Istanbul, Mumbai, Hong Kong and Kathmandu.
“Assocreation deals with networks and their transitions to tangible realities. One of their materials is the ground under our feet, which it manipulates and networks in order to make it palpable.” Friedrich Achleitner
