is an expert in integrating live computing and interactive systems with performance. During his 12-year tenure with Palindrome Intermedia Performance Group, he developed a video recognition system that detects the moving body on stage and, in reaction to the movement and position of the dancer, creates a multi-media spatial design using light, sound and graphic elements. This allows for a cross-over between the dancer’s gestures and the digital world around the dancer, for these elements to integrate into one another. He has received international awards and prizes, for example during the Transmediale in Berlin 2001. He is a professor and docent for interaction and media technology at the Technical University of Nuremburg, the University of the Arts in Bern, the University of Design in Karlsruhe and the University Centre in Doncaster. He has realised art and performance projects with LaborGras and Phase-7 (Berlin), Reiner Hoffman (Nuremburg), Emily Fernandez (Berlin/Melbourne) Prof. Wilfried Jentzsch (Dresden), Leine and Roebana (Amsterdam), Helga Pogatschar, and Cesc Gelabert (Munich) amongst others. In April 2007 he received the Green Room Award for “Design in Dance” in Melbourne for his media work in the production “Glow” by the Australian company “Chunky Move”.
