Humans since 1982 is a Stockholm based art studio founded by Bastian Bischoff and Per Emanuelsson. The studio has produced works that defy easy categorisation, situated between visual art and product design. Humans since 1982’s most well known work to date, A million Times (2013-ongoing), is both a kinetic sculpture and a functioning clock. Developed from The Clock Clock, its hands veer from unpredictable, mechanical spinning, to perfect, synchronised alignment.
Humans since 1982 are Bastian Bischoff (b. 1982, Germany) and Per Emanuelsson (b. 1982, Sweden). Since meeting as postgraduate students at HDK Gothenburg in 2008, the duo have pushed boundaries across art and design to produce works that defy easy categorisation. Through experiential installations and object-making, Humans since 1982 explore themes of privacy, religious symbolism, preservation, and time.
