Media Technology MSc

Public Lecture by Geert Mul

The Media Technology MSc program is proud to announce a public lecture by Geert Mul.

Geert Mul (www.geertmul.nl) regards the database not just as hardware or software, but as a cultural form and a way to perceive things: a databased perception. In his presentation he will explain and show us his design of a data-based methodology of acquiring knowledge; producing artworks with ‘meaning’ in the form of experiences and associations trough intuitive and playful interaction with a database.

For 20 years media artist Geert Mul has been exploring the possibilities of generating visual poetry by re-combining images from collections and databases in video’s, photographs and installations. Over the last 10 years Mul produced over fifteen commissioned interactive installations in public space including the Nederlands Photo Museum and the Middelburg city hall. In 2010 Geert Mul won the prestigious Dutch Witteveen+Bos Art & Technology Award for his entire oeuvre. Geert Mul is represented by Gallery Ron Mandos Amsterdam.
