Eva Schindling (Austria) received a MSc. in Art and Technology from Chalmers University in Sweden and a degree in Interaction and Media Design from FH Joanneum in Austria. She creates hardware and software solutions in the interdisciplinary zone between art, science, technology and design. Driven by a fascination for the emergence of complexity and the nature of reality her research puts a focus on the dynamics of non-linear processes. Her work ranges from embodied evolutionary robotics, algorithmic pattern formation to the visualization of otherwise invisible sound waves and has been shown at the Japan Media Arts festival, Hong Kong’s Museum of Art, Moscow’s Biennale of Contemporary Art, Burning Man, the Pixxelpoint festival in Slovenia, and Nuit Blanche Toronto.

After stints in Hong Kong and at the Banff New Media Institute, she is now the Technology Director at Montreal studio Daily tous les jours. Together with a interdiscplinary team she helps create large-scale public interactive artworks.
