Yiannis Kranidiotis 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 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 properties of the exoplanets or the solar wind. The increasing pollution of the planet with plastic and the effects on the oceans and on the environment in general are issues that also affect his practice. Many of his works include motion and interaction where others include data processing and sonification methods. This requires cross-disciplinary work with sound, visual arts, coding, electronics and physics. He has a BS in Physics from the University of Patras and M.Sc. in Optics from Essex University.

His work has been presented in many festivals and exhibitions like BOZAR (Brussels), Maintenant (Rennes, France), SPECTRA (Aberdeen, UK), Made in NY Media Center (New York), FILE (Sao Paulo, Brazil), B-Seite Festival (Germany), Rome Media Festival, ISEA (2019 S. Korea, 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”.

Ο Γιάννης Κρανιδιώτης είναι ένας καλλιτέχνης το έργο του οποίου διερευνά την σχέση μεταξύ επιστήμης και τέχνης, χρησιμοποιώντας κυρίως το φως, την κίνηση και τον ήχο, δημιουργώντας χώρους και εμπειρίες όπου και τα δύο συνυπάρχουν και αλληλεπιδρούν. Ενδιαφέρεται για φυσικά φαινόμενα όπως η αρμονική ταλάντωση, η φυσική επαναληψιμότητα και η κυματική, αλλά και η διερεύνηση και η επεξεργασία επιστημονικών δεδομένων, όπως οι ιδιότητες των νέων εξωπλανητών ή του ηλιακού ανέμου. Η αυξανόμενη ρύπανση του πλανήτη με πλαστικό και οι επιπτώσεις στους ωκεανούς είναι θέματα που επηρεάζουν επίσης την πρακτική του.  Πολλά από τα έργα του ενσωματώνουν κίνηση και αλληλεπίδραση, ενώ άλλα περιλαμβάνουν μεθόδους επεξεργασίας δεδομένων και ηχοποίησης. Αυτό απαιτεί μία διεπιστημονική εργασία ανάμεσα στην μουσική, sound art, εικαστικά, ηλεκτρονικά, φυσική και προγραμματισμό. Σπούδασε Φυσική στο Πανεπιστήμιο της Πάτρας και Οπτική (M.Sc.) στο Essex University. Ζει και εργάζεται στην Αθήνα.
