Christophoros Doulgeris lives and works between Athens/Greece and Dusseldorf/Germany. He studied Sociology at the University of Crete and photography at the Camberwell College of Arts in London. For the past five years, he has been focusing his artistic practice on an exploration of abstraction,novel media and new technologies. The abstractive minimalism that is distinctive and follows his artistic process, involves recording the communication between human and machine. This work is in line with a post conceptual approach, where the technological requirements for this recording inform and predict both the medium and to some extent the aesthetic approach. At the same time considering, his wider practice of urban archaeology, which has informed his photography for over 20 years, the recording of the agency of machines, through their self-regulating functions, and their correlation to their human-operator, questions the arrival of the new industrial revolution and explores various implications of the Anthropocene.
