Tobias Putrih was born in 1972 in Kranj, Slovenia. Lives and works in Cambridge and New York, U.S.A. and Ljubljana, Slovenia. Interested in science and alchemy ever since he quit the studies of physics for the art academy, Tobias Putrih researches the way the collective imaginary manifests itself and was designed within cinema architectures and through models proposed by utopian architects (Buckminster Fuller, Friedrich Kiesler and Yona Friedman) throughout the 20th century. Putrih’s sculptural installations consist of simple materials such as cardboard, paper, scotch tape and scaffolding, and he employs fractured forms as well as changes in floor levels and illumination to create a narrative pathway.
