Matthijs Munnik

Matthijs Munnik develops new technology that aims to realize sensory experience and compositional possibilities. Mostly working with light, his installations and performance range from hallucination inducing flickering landscapes, to serene infinite colour spaces, spinning holographic forms and singing micro-organisms. He graduated from the Royal Academy in Den Haag, and finished a two year residency at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam in 2016/17. His work consists of performances and installations which play with the perceptions of spectators. He has shown his work in museums like Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Fries Museum Leeuwarden, and festivals internationally, like Sonic Acts (NL), Ars Electronica(AU), TodaysArt (RU), Mapping Festival(CH). He received a Prix Cube Award (FR) in 2013 and Designers & Artists 4 Genomics Award (NL) in 2010.
