Focus area: Digital Art, New Media

Yiannis Kranidiotis (Athens, Greece), is an artist whose work explores the relationship between science and art, using mainly light, motion, and sound to create spaces and experiences where all coexist and interact. He often engages the visitor using interaction, while other times he uses data to drive the motion, the light, and the sound of his works. He is interested in exploring physical phenomena like natural repeatability or wave movement as well as creating sonification methods for scientific data from sources like exoplanets, gravitational waves, or the solar wind. The climate crisis and the increasing pollution of the planet with plastic are issues that also affect his practice. He has collaborated with choreographers and theatre directors in interdisciplinary projects, designing digital artworks, VR environments, and light installations. He has a BS in Physics from the University of Patras and an M.Sc. in Optics and Lasers from Essex University.
