Sebastian Schmieg webprofile

Sebastian is a Berlin-based artist examining the ways networked technologies shape online and offline realities, in artworks that range from shredded hard-drives from a Google data centre 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. His artistic research addresses the Internet’s impact on and amplification of algorithmic and ‘datafied’ life, processes of optimisation, digital colonialism and exploitation.
