About the residency

From January to March 2019 we’ll be hosting Alexandros Kontogeorgakopoulos, a transdisciplinary artist-researcher in Art-Science-Technology.

He 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.

The project will be co-developed by Alexandros Kontogeorgakopoulos in Ljubljana and Odysseas Klissouras in Athens, both founders of oneContinuousLab.

About the artist

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 in the nature of his creative practice and his techno-scientific exploration. After completing his Ph.D. 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 stiwdioEverywhere, an art & design studio that travels around the world following the digital nomad's lifestyle, and oneContinuousLab, a transdisciplinary art-science studio-lab based in Athens, Greece.


Production: Ljudmila & Zavod Projekt Atol Institute.

Residency is supported by the Slovene Ministry of Culture and MOL – Department for Culture. Residency is part of EASTN-DC Network, which is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
