Gerwald Rockenschaub works within a formal repertoire that he began developing in the 1980s when he was a central figure in the emerging "neo-geo" (neo-geometric conceptualism) movement. Uniquely influenced by his work as a techno DJ and composer of electronic music, Rockenschaub absorbs the everyday imagery and forms of logos, traffic signs, and pictograms to produce sculptures, wall installations, and animations that render an aura of hyperrealist perfection.
