Simon Christoph Krenn: melted bodies
Simon Christoph Krenn, born 1986 in Feldkirch (AT). He studied biology and architecture at the University of Innsbruck as well as timebased and interactive media at the University of Arts and Industrial Design Linz. His work combines new digital representation methods and hybrid media.
Working at the intersection of experimental sound, video and hybrid media, he explores the barriers between digital representation and natural phenomena in conceptual installations.
His work focuses on the metabolic-entropic consumption of information that occurs in the process of disappearance and dissociation. Krenn works with microorganisms, mechanical typewriters, electromagnetic actuators, human cell cultures and 16 mm film projectors.
Among his last works he has created digital short films in which rendered body parts anthropomorphically crawl towards each other, pile onto one another and morph together in a mesmerizing symbiosis.
