Jakob Kudsk Steensen / Sensing the Unseen

On 23 November at 3pm CET Fabrica presents the online lecture of the visual artist Jakob Kudsk Steensen.

In his lecture, titled “Sensing the Unseen”, Steensen will explore how technology, art and performance can be combined to reveal new perspectives of otherwise unseen natural phenomena.  

He is focused on environmental storytelling through 3D animation, spatial sound and enveloping installations. He creates poetic interpretations about overlooked natural phenomena through collaborations with field biologists, composers and writers.

His projects are exhibited in international museums and galleries like Serpentine Galleries in London, ARoS Museum of Art in Aarhus, Denmark, Halle am Berghain in Berlin, Luma Arles in France, among others.

He was a finalist for the Future Generation Art Prize at the 2019 Venice Biennale. He received the Serpentine Augmented Architecture commission in 2019 to create his work “The Deep Listener” with Google Arts and Culture. He is the recipient of the best VR graphics for RE-ANIMATED (2019) at the Cinequest Festival for Technology and Cinema in California, the Prix du Jury (2019) at Les Rencontres Arles in France, the Webby Award – People’s Choice VR (2018) in New York and the Games for Change Award – Most Innovative (2018) in Los Angeles, among others. 

Jakob Kudsk Steensen’s conference is part of the “Otherworlding” program curated by Carlos Casas.
