Kristefan Minski (AU) is a cross media artist, producer and researcher concentrated at the nexus of art and science. His primary passion is the way in which artistic thinking combined with technological application can influence and improve our future societies. In 2002 he produced his first significant work; dancing to architecture, a pioneering open source documentary. His passion for producing experimental art continued with a portfolio covering a broad range of mediums and disciplines such as sociology, film, theatre, dance, music, engineering, architecture, interaction design, virtual reality and robotics.
All of which have been culminated by his work at the Ars Electronica Futurelab since 2009. He is responsible for Ars Electronica’s activities in Australia including the establishment and management of bilateral partnerships with several leading universities. He also gives lectures at many other international schools and since 2015 is pursuing a PhD in creative arts at the University of Newcastle with co-supervision from Ars Electronica Futurelab. The research examines the role of collaboration in experimental art practice. It investigates the nature of transdisciplinarity and presents the way of experimental art as a new model for innovation.
