About the residency

From January to March 2019 we’ll be hosting the artist-researcher Alexandros Kontogeorgakopoulos and the architect Olivia Kotsifa, founders of StiwdioEverywhere, an art & design studio that travels around the world following the digital nomads' lifestyle.

Alexandros Kontogeorgakopoulos will be developing a light and sound installation, titled 01101110. It echoes the simplest mathematical model of computation. The series of light paintings and sound will depict the evolution of a one-dimensional cellular automaton - Rule 110 (or Rule 01101110), which is the simplest known Turing complete system. This means that it is capable of simulating any computer algorithm.

Olivia Kotsifa will be developing a project titled Outdoor Workspace. She will design modular furniture, which will be used in the context of the international hacker and artistic camp PIFcamp. Her take on future workspaces is that they are flexible and mobile and most of all, close to a natural environment.

About the artists

Alexandros Kontogeorgakopoulos is an academic, musician and artist, conducting transdisciplinary research and creating work at the intersection of art, science and technology. He has equally a scientific, engineering and musical background which is reflected into the nature of his creative practice and his techno-scientific exploration. After completing his PhD in 2008 in France, he joined Cardiff School of Art and Design (CSAD) at Cardiff Metropolitan University where he is currently Senior Lecturer in Sound and Media Art. His artistic work, which includes audiovisual performances, installations and compositions, has been presented in Europe and in the US. As an artist/researcher he often develops his own software and hardware and explores novel technical, conceptual and artistic approaches. He is currently partner coordinator of the EU funded EASTN-DC European Art Science Technology Network - Digital Creativity project. He is also co-founder of oneContinuousLab, a transdisciplinary art-science studio-lab based in Athens, Greece.

She has worked for 7 years as a Senior Lecturer in the Cardiff School of Art and Design in the United Kingdom, where she started Fab Lab Cardiff, a research and education digital fabrication hub for students, academics and the public. Olivia is currently part of the Decode Fab Lab in Athens. Greece. She believes that mobility has a valuable impact in the future of education and work, and supports it through her academic, design and consulting work while travelling.
