I am Marcus Kirsch, Technoartist, New Media Designer and Programmer.
I hold a BA in Graphic Design, an MA in Interaction Design from Royal College of Art in London, after which I worked as a researcher at the Media Lab Europe in Dublin and returned to London in 2002, where I now work as international artist, designer, programmer and consultant.
My work has been shown in England, Ireland and Holland on numerous events with a recent invitation to 2004 Seoul Biennale and as exhibiting artist and speaker at last year’s Rotterdam International Film Festival and DEAF Festival. My recent awards include a silver Art Directors Club NY and both a shortlisted project and a pricewinning project at 2004’s fusedspace.com international urban technology competition in collaboration with Jussi Angesleva.
I’ve participated to find out more about the technology's possibilities regarding my project URBAN EYES.
URBAN EYES, a conceptual service for the urban space, which combines our perception of the city with the one of the CCTV camera network and the pigeon population. With this workshop, I want to develop my ideas about my project.
The content of the workshop was dense enough for a three days workshop, yet the development part could have played a slightly bigger role. The organization left nothing to ask for and the speakers were diverse so that a broad introduction into different possibilities and approaches towards the technology gave enough ground for a fruitful discussion.
