In his solo exhibition that reflects the MAK Collection, Thomas Bayrle combines traditional craft techniques with the computer-generated
art of the Information Age. Bayrle develops his legendary “superforms” as a reference to cultural and industrial icons like
Jesus Christ, Mao, the highway, or the smartphone. Using the metaphors of dyeing, weaving, and programming, Bayrle explores
the ambivalence of art, craft, and industry and gives rise to kaleidoscopic shapes—Mass Ornaments.
