Yiannis Kranidiotis is a new media artist whose work explores the relationship between science and art using mainly light and sound to create spaces and experiences where both coexist and interact.
He is interested in physical phenomena like the harmonic oscillation, the natural repeatability and the wave movement and also in exploring and transforming scientific data, like the new exoplanet discoveries or the solar wind properties.
Many of his works include motion and interaction where others includes data processing and sonification methods. This requires a cross-disciplinary work with sound, visual arts, coding, electronics and physics. He has a BS in Physics from University of Partas and M.Sc. in Optics from Essex University.
His work has been presented in many festivals and exhibitions like BOZAR (Brussels), Maintenant (Reenes, France), SPECTRA (Aberdeen,UK), Made in NY Media Center (New York), FILE (Sao Paulo, Brazil), B-Seite Festival (Germany), Rome Media Festival, ISEA (2016 Hong Kong, 2015 Vancouver), MADATAC (Madrid), Lumen Prize Global Tour, Athens Digital Arts Festival, Onassis Cultural Center (Athens), LUNDA Gallery (St. Petersburg, Russia).
Many websites and magazines have published articles about his work including “Google Cultural Institute“, “The Creators Project“, “Arduino.org”, “Gizmodo“, “Open Culture“, “Hyperallergic“, “Bigthink” and “Konstvärlden”.
