Reality Hacking

Peter Regli is a Swiss multi-medium urban artist best known for his Reality Hacking project, that’s been ongoing for over 20 years and has expanded to several continents.
Born in 1959 in Andermatt, Regli studied at the Zurich University of the Arts.
Reality Hacking
Starting 1995, Peter Regli has invented his own kind of art of anonymous intervention in the landscape and other public spaces which he entitled Reality Hacking. The main goal of the project is to challenge the pre-established perception of particular systems by performing a series of bright and uncommon interventions. Working in a various mediums including sculptures, photographs and spatial installations, Regli’s artworks are characterised by a keen observational talent and striking wit. Exploring the poetics of predictability and the obviousness of everyday objects, Peter finds inspiration in external space, so his interventions can take many forms spanning from subtle alterations to the surrealistic confrontation.
Some of his works feature objects set up in removed places including deserts or lakes where they may be seen only by rare passersby. Others are located in the crowded urban areas, but all of the Regli’s pieces briefly award a sacred status to selected, unusual sites.
