Belgian artist and TED fellow Angelo Vermeulen, works with installations, video, photography, and new media. He is best known for his experimental devices that combine living organisms, artificial life, and science fiction. Bringing together ecology, game culture, and installation art, Biomodd [ATH1] is a multiplayer game and ecosystem created during the artist’s residency at the Aesthetic Technologies Lab in Athens, Ohio. The work visualizes the intricate relations of organic life, technology, and consumption. A monumental case mod is built as a form of expanded sculpture, and the heat of overclocked processors is recycled by an elaborate living ecosystem. The documentary film follows the creative process and explores new ideas in contemporary installations from the perspective of Vermeulen’s young collaborators: Jeff Lovett, John Seyal, Daniel Mintz, and Scott Sullivan. Filmmaker Morgan Riles directed this feature production as her Ohio University thesis. BIOMODD has screened at the 27th International Festival of Films on Art, and the Houston Cinema Arts Festival, 2009.
