Mattis Kuhn. Self-Driving Futures

The concept of uncertainty, vagueness and open futures will be explored from various perspectives with a focus on aesthetic experience as a playground of porous interactions between different agents of changing configurations.

Currently, he is artistic associate for Creative Coding at Bauhaus University Weimar. His works have been shown at ZKM in Karlsruhe and EMAF in Osnabrück.
