Artist / Univ. Assistant Art&Scienceat Universität für künstlerische und industrielle Gestaltung – University of Art and Design Linz
Focus area: Art Theory, Critical Theory

Noor Stenfert Kroese is a new media artist, scenographer and artistic researcher. From a critical post-human perspective, her works evolve around the relationship between humans and non-humans in spatial performative installations. Noor completed Interface Cultures (MA) at the Kunstuniversität Linz (AT) and Scenography (BA) from the Amsterdam University of Arts (NL). Besides her artistic practice, she also is Univ.-Ass for the department of Art & Science (MA) at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
The interconnectedness of science, nature and technology inspires Noor. Whereby the intertwinement between her installations and the spectators is essential. Noor’s current research focuses on data storytelling of living organisms. Exploring the unknown of the living organism through sensors and robotics is translated into tactile human experienceable outcomes. Her work does not provide a direct answer but seeks the space to ask questions and experience.
Noor’s work was exhibited and performed at venues and festivals such as the Ars Electronica Festival (AT), Festival X (UAE), Barcelona Design Week (ES), and Dutch National Opera & Ballet (NL). She received awards for her work from YouFab Global Creative Awards (JP) and Prins Bernard Young Talent Award (NL).
