Pierce Warnecke is a Berlin-based sound and video artist whose work explores the effects of time on matter through modification, deterioration, and disappearance. Whether focussing on digital forms or rough materials, broad sweeps of time or microscopic details, the goal of Warnecke's work is to adapt existing objects and materials into parallel contexts where their signified meanings, symbols, and cultural connections become residual ghosts.
Warnecke graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2007, and in 2013 completed his Meisterschüler (MA) studies at Universität der Kunst Berlin (Kunst und Medien). He co-curates Emitter Micro Festival and label with Kris Limbach, and has presented his works at KW Institut, LEAP, and FEED in Berlin, Harvestworks (NY), Luggage Store Gallery (SF), Berklee (Boston), CalArts (LA) as well as festivals like Zero1 Biennale, Transmediale, Bozart/BEAF (Brussels), MadeiraDig (PT), LAB30 (DE), Boston Cyberarts, Visionsonic (FR), Pixelache (FR), Vidéoformes (FR), SXSW Interactive (US) and more. His music has been released on Khalija, Staaltape, Gaffer, Attenuation Circuit, and Gruenrekorder.
Pierce Warnecke currently lives and works in Berlin.
