Mads Høbye

In December the Danish installation artist and researcher, Mads Høbye, is an artist in residence in S12. Høbye also had a residency in S12 in 2020, a virtual one, as he couldn’t be physically present due to Covid regulations. He then started a collaboration with workshop manager Tim Belliveau, through a series of streamed dialogues and working sessions. This time around he is here in person and continues to work on his experiments where glass and interactive technology merges. The result will be presented in the exhibition Sensing Presence opening in the beginning of January 2022.

Mads Høbye holds a PhD in interactive design from Medea, Malmö University and is a  co-founder of illutron collaborative interactive art studio. He is conducting research into the potential of digital material exploration within art and technology. He has a keen interest in maker hacktivism and experimental electronic upcycling. As an Associate professor at the Department of People and Technology at Roskilde University Center, he has co-created Exostudio to create cross-pollination between artists, scientists, innovators and makers in general.

Since 2004 Høbye has exhibited at museums, public settings and large-scale events and ongoingly produces academic publications as meta reflections on his practice.
