About

Sebastian is an architect, artist, and trained car mechanic, who works and teaches at the intersection of art and science - currently at his Alma Mater, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts at the Centre for Information Technology and Architecture. His work explores the relationship of art, architecture, technology and fiction. He has worked, taught and exhibited in Germany, Portugal, the United States, Italy and Denmark. As an artist, he explores the relationship between the human body and digital technologies, mainly through the use of medical computer tomography, methods of algorithmic pattern making and media art installations. As a researcher, he explores the role of robots in architecture, as means for bespoke architectural fabrication or as integrated sensor-actor elements of architecture itself. The ongoing research project Flora robotica develops and investigates closely linked symbiotic relationships between robots and natural plants and explores the potentials of a plant-robot society able to produce architectural artifacts and living spaces.
