participant in
“Celebrate!” – 10 Years JavaMuseum – Forum for Internet Technology in Contemporary Art

After graduating in Media Art in 2000 and receiving a Master in Fine Arts in 2002 Michiel Koelink now lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Next to his work as an independent artist Koelink has been working in the Media Art field as talent scout, curator and teacher at the Amsterdam Academy for art education. Initially Koelink worked with photography and video developing a passion for loops and simple rule based works. Building on this passion he started developing programs that do not loop but are infinite using algorithms. Koelinks tries not to use metaphors in his work. He wants to create works that trigger a tranquil state in which one can freely associate.
