Gabriele Leidloff

- Gabriele Leidloff's project, "l o g - i n / l o c k e d  o u t " uses a metophorical character, the locked-in state, to reflect the questions of communication. Medically defined, locked-in, describes the state of a person being conscious, but only being able to communicate indirectly. Communication with the outer- world then, finds its expression in coded form. The project involves investigation into speech narrative structure, applied technology in the art and medical fields, portrayal and voyeurism on the part of the viewer. To address these specific themes and exhibitions with artistic and scientific works will be shown and accompanied by lectures, steady network communications, and public/private forums to generate a discourse between neuroscientists, artists, and theorists.


l o g - i n / l o c k e d  o u t

A Forum of Art and Neuroscience

l o g - i n / l o c k e d o u t
- a forum of art, neurology and communication.

Gabriele Leidloff initiated the forum
l o g - i n / l o c k e d o u t as an artistic production.
l o g - i n / l o c k e d o u t invites artists neuroscientists and entrepreneurs into a dialogue. This dialogue manifests itself through exhibitions, debates, and salons creating a series of events for participants and their artistic and scientific work.

l o g - i n / l o c k e d o u t creates a new form of dramaturgy. In the delineation of existing events
l o g - i n / l o c k e d o u t presents a selectively arranged international network of specialists keen on social relevance and potentially explosive themes:

- Applied technology in art and medicine
- Eye movement and cognition in relation to imagination and perception
- Speech versus narrative structure

Through this concentration of material, a self-updating program develops which is continually inserted into events with the cooperation of the organizers.
l o g - i n / l o c k e d o u t creates artistic installations for various cultural and economic events, its customers and the public.

Events are documented through ongoing installations such that build upon one another while the circle of participants continuously enlarges and expands.
l o g - i n / l o c k e d o u t will produce itself over a five year period ending in 2004 and reach fruition in a bilingual catalogue.
