Volker Morawe

Volker Morawe is an Cologne and Amsterdam based artist and apparatus expert. Before he graduated in 2004 at the Academy for Media Arts in Cologne he worked as a space electronic technician and hit producer.  In 2001 he founded together with Tilman Reiff the artist duo //////////fur////. For more than 10 years  he creates multi-sensory artefacts related to the construction and social aspects of computer game culture. His interactive installations combine game-logic, media criticism, apparatus parody and childhood memories into engaging man-machine experiences, oftentimes altering the view on the relationship between man and technology. Beside the main artistic question of alternative user interface humor, group experience and hormones are the key points of his work.
