KARLSRUHE / RIGA

Kaspars Jaudzems is an audiovisual artist working mainly in code - designing, building, sequencing and composing works using algorithms and numbers. He has a strong background in engineering and uses that to build complex technological installations, interactive works and interfaces, trying to explore mathematical and physical raw building blocks [of existance] in relation to technology.
In a heavy cyber punk inspired style he reflects upon threats that we are facing and hypothetical technological utopias and dystopias of near future. He uses code and cybernetic feedback loops, to create generative audiovisual compositions and new experiences.
He is currently based in Karlsruhe, Germany.
