Sebastian Schmieg


Sebastian Schmieg examines the ways networked technologies shape online and offline realities, in artworks that range from shredded hard-drives from a Google datacenter to crowd-sourced versions of popular self-help books using Amazon's Kindle. His output encompasses websites, interface performances, algorithmic videos, online interventions, print-on-demand books, or neural networks. He focuses on a critical engagement with the manifold and ubiquitous nodes of the Internet—both human and technological—as sites of the political. Previously his work has been exhibited at The Photographers’ Gallery, London, UK; Art Center Nabi, Seoul, South Korea; Bitforms Gallery, New York, USA; and Impakt Festival, Utrecht, The Netherlands. Sebastian Schmieg lives and works in Berlin.
