Andreas Schlegel works and teaches across disciplines. He develops artefacts, tools and interfaces where art and technology meet in a curious way. Many of his works are concerned with computational aesthetics and the behaviour of machines. In his artistic practice he creates audio, visual and physical outcomes driven by computation, interaction and networked processes.
His practice mainly revolves around the use of code in creative activities and artistic contexts. Here, code renders outputs in real time, which are then applied in various media such as screen, print, object, installation or performance. Inspiration is often drawn from everyday observations, experiments, data and nature.
Currently Andreas lives and works in Singapore where he heads the Media Lab at Lasalle College of the Arts. His work at the lab is practice-based, collaborative and interdisciplinary in nature and aims to blur the boundaries between art and technology.
