For me it all started with a curiosity for mathematics, technology and computers. I was especially fascinated with cryptography and space travel. I realized, if I wanted to participate in creating the future I had to learn how computers and the internet worked and how to program and build machines. This lead me to study physics.


When studying statistical mechanics, I was fascinated by the principle of „universality“, which says some properties of systems can be largely independent of their underlying structure. Thats why, in my advanced studies, I specialized in the theoretical physics’ discipline of complex systems.

I studied Arabic and philosophy (epistemology) on the side.

I continued my studies at art school, with a Master of Arts in Digital Media, a course combining media art, media theory, media design, interaction design and media informatics. I followed my passion for music and dance and picked study courses dealing with sound design, algorithmic composition and dance.


Now I produce artistic experiences of actual fundamental scientific questions and scientific research. The works consist of visual art, new media art and installations, electronic music, dance and instruments I design and perform.

I have performed and exhibited at CTM Berlin, Ars Electronica in Linz, Transmediale Berlin and internationally in NYC, L.A., Amsterdam, Madeira (my first music gig) and other places. I speak six natural languages and 10+ programming languages.

I also speak at conferences as an expert on VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality), XR (mixed reality) and AI (artificial intelligence) especially in context of music and the music business.

from 2017 to 2019 I have taught students to develop and program AI, VR, AR and XR artwork and music performances as part of my  “Performative Systems” lecturing series at the University of Arts (UdK) Berlin, within the Generative Art class.

In 2015 I funded an open community that I still supervise, “MovLab”, which brings together people from different backgrounds, in order to research on possibilities of digitizing the human body and interactions and making the captured data available for use in reseearch and performance art.
