Bio

Matthias Oostrik collaborates with his audience to explore digital technologies. His interactive installations investigate the impact of digital technology on our surroundings and its influence on our relations to others.

Matthias Oostrik works at the interface of computer art, installation art and film and makes use of experimental man-machine interaction:

From the poetical:
blending human expression and algorithms to generate visual landscapes.

Past the irrational:
customising surveillance technology to activate audiences.

To the impossible:
adopting EEG brainwave devices data to create intimacy.
