Daniel Franke (1982) works as an artist, designer and music video director in Berlin. His works challenge the restrictions of conventional spatial frameworks and – concepts: digital simulations should no longer be limited to an on-screen-display; instead the digital might be imagined as transferable into real space and thus extend perceptions of “the real”. Ultimately digital spaces should leave the realm of the virtual and enter the tactile.
This approach is present in works like „Spatial Sound Sculpture“ and „Durchsehen Exp. 01 (Augmented Perspective)“.
Daniel is a graduand at the University of Arts where he is currently preparing his masters degree (Meisterschüler) mentored by Prof. Joachim Sauter and Prof. Alberto de Campo.

Christopher Warnow’s (1982) works as an artist, designer and programmer. He is interested in the hopes and the trust we invest in digital data and – images. In performances and workshops Christopher utilizes generative strategies to examine our enthusiasm towards digital technologies and questions its grounds.
During his study at the Berlin Technical Art School and in workshops at the Technical College Potsdam, Warnow explores the potential of programming as a means of establishing a personal image-language, freed from commercial restrictions. Recurrently he tests the potential of generativity in the visualization of information and in the form of audiovisual performances.
Setting free creativity is the main motivation behind his work as technical adviser of artists like Angela Bulloch and Sunah Choi.
