Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF) is an International Festival which celebrates digital culture through an annual gathering bringing together a global community of artists and audiences.
Neurodynamics is a generative projection-triptych generated from graphical elements and movements recorded from the physical world. These abstract trajectories of elementary structure are combined with the fluid gradients and colors of photographic elements by experimentation with machine learning algorithms such as style transfer. The emergent qualities of this technique develop particular aesthetics far away from its intended purpose. The mediation via an augmented algorithmic system, plays a crucial role for the visual aesthetics of these formalistic abstract computer graphics.
“Style is more than a simple matter of aesthetics because it unfolds a way of making sense sensible.” —Roy Ascott

Marcel Schwittlick is an artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. With his work, he is examining cybernetic aspects of generative systems and modern technology. He is interested in digital culture; it’s influence on society and chances for alternative kinds of communication. He is working in strong connection to various practices, forging a relationship between physical and digital media, traditional and modern approaches. Marcel Schwittlick is working with a variety of media, ranging from digital images, physical and interactive installations, generative poetry and conceptual video. In 2015 he co-founded Lacuna Lab, a Berlin-based artist group and community working on the intersection of art, technology and science.
Marcel Schwittlick graduated in 2014 with a B.Sc. in Media Computing at HTW Berlin, where he examined the technical properties of digital media. Currently he is studying Art & Media at the University of Arts, Berlin.
