STUDIO Lecture: Memo Akten

October 8 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry

Event Navigation

Memo Akten is an artist working with computation as a medium, exploring the collisions between nature, science, technology, ethics, ritual, tradition and religion.

Combining critical and conceptual approaches with investigations into form, movement and sound, he creates data dramatizations of natural and anthropogenic processes. Alongside his practice, he is currently working towards a PhD at Goldsmiths University of London in artificial intelligence and expressive human-machine interaction.

Memo’s work has been shown and performed internationally, featured in books and academic papers; and in 2013 Memo received the Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica for his collaboration with Quayola, “Forms.”
