He began studying biology at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and finished his media design diploma at the Bauhaus University (Weimar, Germany). His films have been shown in a museal context at ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany, “Art_Clips .ch.at.de”), Wilhelm-Hack Museum (Ludwigshafen, Germany, “Abstract Art Now - Floating Forms”) and Royal Museum of Fine Arts (Antwerp, Belgium, “GORGE(L) - Opression and Relief in Art”) as well as hundreds of festivals (Prix Ars Electronica, onedotzero, DOTMOV, IFF Rotterdam, EMAF), galleries, magazines, books and TV programmes worldwide. They have been honoured with several prices like an Honorary Award of KunstFilmBiennale (Cologne, Germany) and the Prize for Best Experimental Film at Ottawa International Animation Festival (Ottawa, Canada).
In his films Seidel is interested in pushing the boundaries of organic beauty and their emotional perception with visual and scientific technology. By layering different structural, spatial and temporal concepts organically he creates a slowly evolving complexity. This multifaceted perspective, a kind of narrational skeleton is filled by the viewers own memory and creates a seamless blend with the artwork itself.
