Lukas Truniger is a new media and sound artist, working on multimedia installations, audiovisual performances and new musical instruments. His work is inspired by the intangible, the invisible, the inaudible and the complex in nature as well as in society. He creates singular experiences challenging our perception, pinpointing unseen connections of artificial, natural and social systems to further blur their supposed separation. He uses the mimetic character of technology to create speculative representations of transitory aspects of our being.
His work has been shown internationally in institutions such as the Ludwig Museum in Budapest, Pearl Art Museum in Shanghai, Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence and Harvestworks in New York City as well as at various festivals: Ars Electronica in Linz, City Sonic in Louvain-la-Neuve (BE), Mapping Festival in Geneva, Mirage Festival in Lyon, Burning Man in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, Sonica in Glasgow, International Digital Arts Biennal (BIAN) in Montreal and International Symposium for Electronic Arts (ISEA) in Hong Kong.
Born in Zürich, he lives and works in Lille in northern France.
