Abstract

When we think of the objective existence of the art work, there must be a space where we can position the work of art or the object of art that has to be constructed in a space. Therefore, the space is one of the indispensable elements in the creation process of artworks. The change in perception of reality in time has differentiated the use of the space and its place in the artworks. With the help of developing technology, space-related artworks have been shaped by today's understanding. While the space is an element used in artworks in past times, today it has become a work of art itself or it has been a concept that has been questioned independently by the artists. Peter Kogler is one of the artists who have used the space in this way and placed it in their works. Kogler helps us experience the space by creating new spaces within the space and he makes it by using today's technology. The aim of this study is to examine the present-day space concept that has emerged with the developing technology through Peter Kroger's digital space works. In this study, what the space is, the historical processes of its using in artworks and the effect of the today technology on the questioning of the space have been examined. In the direction of these findings, digital space works by Peter Kogler have been evaluated.
