Eduardo Kac

 
Eduardo Kac (born 1962 in Rio de Janeiro) is internationally recognized for his telepresence and bio art. A pioneer of telecommunications art in the pre-Web' 1980s, Eduardo Kacemerged in the early 1990s with his radical works combining telerobotics and living organisms. His visionary integration of robotics, biology and networking explores the fluidity of subject positions in the post-digital world. His work deals with issues that range from the mythopoetics of online experience to the cultural impact of biotechnology; from the changing condition of memory in the digital age to distributed collective agency; from the problematic notion of the “exotic” to the creation of life and evolution. At the dawn of the twenty-first century Kac opened a new direction for contemporary art with his “transgenic art”.
