About

Yiannis Kranidiotis is new media artist and musician whose work explores the inseparable relationship between science and art, using mainly light and sound and by creating spaces and experiences where both coexist and interact. This requires a cross-disciplinary work with sound, visual arts, coding, electronics and physics. His work has been presented in many festivals and exhibitions like Made in NY Media Center (New York), B-Seite Festival (Germany), Rome Media Festival, ISEA 2016 (Hong Kong), ISEA 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”.  He has also composed music for short films and theatre.

He has a BS in Physics from University of Partas and M.Sc. in Optics from Essex University. He lives and works in Athens.
