Maya Quattropani is a visual artist & art teacher based in Turin, Italy, working with performance, analog photography, video, sound and textual/narrative installations. Her work is an archive-in-progress of daily rituals developed in participatory actions/games/workshops/excursions involving people to cooperate in the construction of a new (artistic) community.
In his artistic creations, Niki Passath searches for answers to the mystery of life, people, their emotions, social behavior, their behavior compared to machines and to the surrounding nature.
On this adventurous journey in search for knowledge he incorporates different disciplines, from robotics to artificial intelligence, from physics to the life sciences. He has traveled to Sweden, Norway, Finland and Australia in search of different answers, which he assembles into kinetic objects, photographs and other artistic configurations. He is always searching for new challenges in form and content.
At the University of Applied Arts in Vienna he teaches “Interface Design,” “Architecture of Light,” and “Public Space and Media.” He collaborates in a multitude of scientific research projects, including the bio-art club “Pavilion 35.”
