The journey for each of us begins here. We’re going to explore the cosmos in a ship of the imagination, unfettered by ordinary limits on speed and size, drawn by the music of cosmic harmonies.

He received the Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica in 2013 and his works have been frequently exhibited around the globe: London, Moscow, Paris, Tel Aviv, Eindhoven, Amsterdam, Lisbon, Sao Paolo, Rio. Alongside his practice, he is currently working towards a PhD at Goldsmiths University of London in artificial intelligence and artistic, expressive human/machine interaction.
