Sylvain Vriens (1980) is an interaction artist that mainly focuses on video and physical electronics. His work frustrates, reacts unexpectedly en often times shows human-like attributes. Besides his own free work he helps other artists realizing their ideas and works as a programmer at IJsfontein. Recently he received his masters degree in Media Technology from the university of Leiden.

During his studies he worked, among other projects, on Have-a-Seat, an interactive sofa about proxemics in public space and graduated with I am always here; an installation about CCTV and how it defines a new urban reality and religion.

Although discovering the computer relatively late as a creative medium he soon started as a place to post his interactive experiments. From here Sylvain slowly found his way to electronics and physical computing, moving away from computer screens, keyboards and mice.
