Artist Simon Krenn (Austria)

Simon Christoph Krenn was born in Feldkirch (AT) in 1986. He studied Biology and 
Architecture at the University of Innsbruck and is currently enrolled in the 
Bachelor's degree programme 'Timebased and Interactive Media' at the University 
of Arts and Industrial Design in Linz. Working at the intersection of 
experimental sound, video and hybrid media, he explores the barriers between 
digital representation and natural phenomena in conceptual installations. His 
work focuses on the metabolic-entropic consumption of information that occurs in 
the process of disappearance and dissociation. He works with microorganisms, 
mechanical typewriters, electromagnetic actuators, human cell cultures and 16 mm 
film projectors. /
