Jakob Theileis is an artist and engineer from Berlin. Currently based in New York City. In Berlin he studied engineering and worked as a solar engineer and artist. He is member of several art collectives such as:Goat-Solutions and the Antagonist Art Movement. He curated and participated in several international art shows in Lisbon, Berlin, Copenhagen and New York City.
My installations are based on combining engineering and artistic skills by building kinetic installations and sculptures that interact with their environment. The viewer is invited to interact and become part of the process. The main process parameters are randomness, interaction and mixing media. Thus creating an art form that has both human and machine made characteristics.
