Tweak featured artist: Ryan Jordan

Ryan's exploration of sound and music performance with computers lead to the development of his prototype MIDI controller, the M.G.I (Movement and Gesture Interface) which was an attempt at bringing a more physical performance element to laptop and computer music.

He now works in the intersection of the arts and sciences and explores and develop systems which merge all medias together through the physical augmentation of the body as a controlling device for computational applications. He is the founder of the Sensory Response Systems group.

Tweak is taking place from 21st to 26th of September. Click here for more information.

Tweak featured artist: Pierre Proske

Pierre is an Australian artist intrigued by the pervasiveness of technology in culture and its relationship to nature. After years of juggling parallel interests in technology and the arts, Pierre tired of the schizophrenia and finally discovered that it was socially acceptable, in fact highly desirable, to merge the two. Consequently he has taken on the ambitious task of rendering computers accountable to our sometimes misplaced but inevitable humanity.

Having studied Electrical Engineering and Liberal Arts at the University of Melbourne, Australia, Pierre then spent three and a half years in Sweden where he developed a body of work and obtained a Master in Art and Technology from Chalmers University.

Proske's work involves exposing the unspoken relationships we have with technology to and harnessing machines into exploring new aesthetics. Both resisting and exploiting modern techno-utopian trends, Proske employs humour and a whiff of self-deprecation as weapons against the invasion of computer augmented realities. Alongside electronic art projects he also works as a sound designer and electronic musician. He has exhibited or performed in Australia, Sweden, Canada, Iceland, Brazil, Japan, Austria and the Netherlands.
Pierre alternates living and working in Europe and Australia.
