Ludwig Zeller explores the relationship between technologies and culture through a multitude of artistic and scientific methods. In his practice he blurs the supposedly clear, disciplinary borders between art and design. Ludwig graduated from the Design Interactions programme at the Royal College of Art London and the Academy of Media Arts Cologne.
As a docent at the Academy of Art and Design Basel (FHNW) he examines with his students the poetic dimensions of our data culture through audio-visual translations between analogue and digital domains. His personal research puts a special emphasis on the narrative qualities of fictional design artefacts and scenarios. Strategies for creating awareness and reflection of our status quo as well as the discussion of the relationship between society and technology are key points of his investigations.
Ludwig has worked as a designer and artist since 2005 and joined the academic board of the Academy of Art and Design Basel in 2011. His work has been exhibited internationally at V2_ Rotterdam, FILE Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro, MU Eindhoven, Arnolfini Bristol, Barbican London, technarte Bilbao and written about in PAGE, De:Bug, Fast.Co Design, wemakemoneynotart, Beyond the Beyond and CAN.
