Michael Naimark

-> Arbeit in FUTURE CINEMA

[USA]
Computerwissenschaftler, Medienkünstler

* 1952, Detroit [USA]
lebt und arbeitet in San Francisco [USA]

Michael Naimark experimentierte früh mit Computertechnologien. Erste Versuche mit Kombinationen aus Film und interaktiven Steuerungen führten zu Studien über die Navigation in weiträumigen Arealen. Thema seiner Arbeiten ist das im Umgang mit dem Werk erfahrbare Verhältnis zwischen punktueller Verortung und abstrakter Wahrnehmung komplexer Raumgefüge.
