Marinos Koutsomichalis is a media artist, scholar and creative technologist. He was born in Athens, GR (1981) and has since lived and worked in various cities around the world. His interests comprise post-humanism, materialism, computational aesthetics, (big) data in/as art, cybernetics, post-digital objecthood, and DIWO (Do-It-With-Others) approaches to art and education. The most persistent themes in his artistic corpus are self-erasure and the post-self. He strives for contextual and geographical disparity so that the working tactics, materials and technologies his projects pivot on are ever-renovated. Accordingly, he has publicly presented his work, pursued projects, led workshops, and held talks worldwide more than 150 times and in all sorts of milieux: from leading museums and acclaimed biennales, to industrial sites, churches, project-spaces, academias, symposia, research institutions, underground venues, and squats. He has held research positions at the University of Turin (IT), and the Norwegian University for Science and Technology (Trondheim, NO), and has taught at the University of Wolverhampton (Birmingham, UK), the Technical University of Crete (Rethymnon, GR) and the Contemporary Music Research Centre (Athens, GR). He is responsible for numerous academic publications, for a series of music albums and for a book. He is the founder of ‘Ubique Media’—a company offering ad-hoc software/hardware solutions for media artists. He has a PhD in Electronic Music and New Media (De Montfort University, GB) and a MA in Composition with Digital Media (University of York, GB).
