Born in 1982 in Estonia, where he lives and works in the sphere of media art. The form of Suisalu’s works comes from altering the practical use-value of technologies, finding applications for devices which are different from their primary purpose. He is interested in sociocultural phenomena and the ways technology changes human behavior, perception and thinking.
Komarov, born in 1971 in Belarus. Lives and works in Germany. His works concern questions of migrating identities, (cultural) globalization, the condition of contemporary art and its relation to broader economic contexts.
Tyminko, born in 1972 in Ukraine, lives and works in the Netherlands and Germany. He continually intensifies the use of programming languages as his main artistic tool. In his works, he is exploring the dynamics of interrelationship between art, science and technology, and the rapidly changing role of the artist in these processes.
