Brazilian Visual Artist Otavio Schipper and Musician Sergio Krakowski have been developing a unique artistic practice based on their scientific background and interest in diverse fields of knowledge.
The artists have been using scientific research such as artificial intelligence, computational music theory, electronic engineering and neuroscience, to develop complex sound and light installations, leading the public into territories more closely associated with dream states and imagination dives.
They have received the KLAS Award from the Max Planck Society in 2017 and have presented their work at venues such as the Kunstmuseum Thun (Switzerland), the Schering Stiftung Project Space (Germany), MOT International (United Kingdom), Akademie der Künste (Germany) , Galeria Anita Schwartz (Brazil), and Residency Unlimited (USA).
Otavio Schipper (Brazil, 1979) holds a degree in Physics from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, and has received the 2015 Fellowship from the Akademie der Künste Berlin.
Sergio Krakowski (Brazil, 1979) holds a PhD in Mathematics from the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics in Rio de Janeiro and has a prominent career both as a jazz instrumentalist and a contemporary sound artist.
