Thilo Frank lives and works in Munich & Berlin. His installations, sculptures and photo series lead the viewer into situations creating interactive physical dialogues. Physical phenomena and environments of our daily life are interpreted in a new context emphasizing our perception of light, space and motion in a poetic and playful way. His works ask of a visitor to question one‘s relation to action in space and the consequences of one‘s action – an intimate experience. The viewer functions as a coproducer of the work, perceiving his or her relational aspect as a instrument of measurement. The cognitive aspect in its work is enacted by the viewer, who through his physical reaction to the work, reflects himself to it. Through his physical interaction - the viewer completes the work.

Through the use of everyday technologies Thilo Frank explores the conventions of sight and movement and their visualization. Examination produces a type of measuring standard through which even seemingly random events are viewed equally. Through his works, an attempt is made to illustrate the optical coefficient and with this to analyse the space.
