Manu Luksch

Artists

Manu Luksch, founder of Ambient Information Systems, is a filmmaker who works with moving images. The core theme of her works is the evolution of film in the digital or networked age.

Through her films and art works, Manu researches the effects of emerging technologies on daily life, social relations, urban space, and political structures.

Particular zones of focus are the borders of public space, the weave of the urban fabric, surveillance and the gaze, and security and identity systems.

In 2009 Peckham Platform (then Peckham Space) commissioned Luksch and artist Neal White for Limitations Permitted, a project that asked us to consider our civil liberties in a climate of increasing surveillance. A ‘kiosk’ was erected in Peckham Square, staffed by a new type of security person, who invited passersby to find alternative ways to navigate the environment. A series of films displayed on viewmaster devices both revealed and questioned the by-laws that regulate the public space of Peckham Square.
