When you visit painter Florian Meisenberg’s website, you get an insight into his way of thinking about the image, as well as his understanding of painting as the visualisation of a complex mass of tissues com- posed of many layers, from creative thoughts and various aspects of human existence all the way to the infinitely extensive virtual world. Meisenberg’s website presents his practice using a pre-programmed algorithm performing an online search for content associated with his name, which is interwoven with reproductions of his paintings. Users may ever alter the selection in the settings. This design is identical to Meisenberg’s real-world exhibition projects, where the painted image is always presented as the centrepiece of a complex installation that includes digital simula- tions experienced through the medium of a screen or a virtual reality headset. For the artist, VR thus becomes an instrument and a means of demonstrating the use of new technologies in ways that are not necessarily rational, instead using them to create poetic visual compositions.
