Elastic joints. Dancing as a drill of jaktations. Slower and slower. More and more nervous. Progressing in senseless loops, circling around the same feverishly throbbing memories, which are not memories at all but inventions, wandering in sensory deprivation. There is no reason. There was nothing. And there is nothing. This is how it can work, the metamorphosis from beast to borg. Behind the Schwarzschild radius all bodies, all images, all light, all sense and all hope are silted up, forgotten, lost in the Hades of the New Age.

Ulf Langheinrich was born in 1960, in Wolfen, GDR.
After studying industrial design, he conducted audio experiments using pipe organs, harmoniums and multiple tape machine environments, as well as engaging mainly in drawing. In 1984, he left East Germany for West Germany, where he started to develop the basics of his language in painting, photography and electronic music. In 1988, he moved to Vienna pursuing his activities in his studio in the WUK (Werkstätten und Kulturhaus).
In 1991, in Vienna, he co-founded with Austrian artist Kurt Hentschläger the duo GRANULAR-SYNTHESIS.

Since 2003, Ulf Langheinrich has been producing a new series of large scale solo projects, among others PERM (2005), an interactive abstract film created for the EVE Interactive Cinema system, designed by Jeffrey Shaw, HEMISPHERE (2006-2016) and LOST (2017), designed for a hemispheric screen, or LAND, a stereoscopic installation commissioned by Liverpool Biennial 2008.
