Jurgen Ostarhild (*1956 in Überlingen) is a German artist and photographer who photographed style-defining portraits of Martin Kippenberger and Kate Moss in the 1990s.
The Berlin-based artist uses light and code as his canvas. He creates image automata, site-specific installations, multiples, and printed artefacts to investigate the boundaries of concrete visual language in the post-photographic landscape. His current work explores distributed data networks such as public blockchains to generate real-time performances of encoded light, drawing from the traditions of American colour field painting and concrete art.
