Michiel Koelink (NL)
Michiel Koelink (NE) is a media artist who works with software systems, video, sound and photography, through which he demonstrates a passion for loops and simple rule-based works, often subjected to infinite changes by algorithmic structures. In the process of research and development, Koelink often collaborates with scientists and other experts. Works like Spitzenkörper and 2.5 Dimensions show a commitment to an aesthetic visualization of science. PoetryMachine was developed in close collaboration with programmer David Jonas, a computer science engineer with an interest in the relation between a rule driven world of technology and a rule defiant world of art.
