Matter grown into consciousness through the absence of time.
Primitive and refined nature intertwined in a trembling void.
Unconceived vibrations of idle bodies.
The underlying mycelium of connections.
AUJIK is an artistic concept initiated in 2001 by the Swedish artist Stefan Larsson who lives in Kyoto, Japan. Its core themes are artificial intelligence, nature, technology, perception, future speculation, neuroscience and architecture. AUJIK resembles a fictive esoteric cult whose outlook contains elements from Shintoism, Zen Buddhism and Japanese nature religions. Its central idea is that everything, even the most artificial things, have consciousness and a soul. On the audio visual level, AUJIK’s works combine alien organic-mechanical hybrids with electronic music soundscapes.
AUJIK been featured and awarded at Prix Ars Electronica, SIGGRAPH, JMAF, Animago and had exhibitions worldwide.
