Robert Seidel is a Berlin based artist, working in the field of experimental film, projection and video installation.
He began his studies in biology at Friedrich Schiller University Jena before transferring to the Bauhaus University Weimar to complete his degree in media design. His projections, installations and experimental films have been shown in museums like LACMA Los Angeles, Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, ZKM Karlsruhe, Nabi Art Center Seoul, Museum of Image and Sound São Paulo and MOCA Taipeh as well as numerous of festivals (Prix Ars Electronica, onedotzero, DOTMOV, IFF Rotterdam, EMAF), galleries, magazines, books and TV programmes worldwide. His works have been honoured with various prizes, including the KunstFilmBiennale Honorary Award and Prize for Best Experimental Film at the Ottawa International Animation Festival.
In his work Seidel is interested in pushing the boundaries of abstracted beauty through cinematographic approaches, as well as ones drawn from science. By the organic interplay of various structural, spatial and temporal concepts, he creates a continuously evolving complexity. Out of this multifaceted perspective emerges a narrative skeleton through which viewers connect to the artwork via the projection of their own personal memories.
