He is programmer, graphic, vj and experimenter. He is hedonist of the visual environment, lover of colours and organic forms. Editor of the Generator.x project (between conference, exhibitions and live concert) maybe the most known and qualified platform for the diffusion of the generation art and the sharing of the knowledge tied to the open source processing code and of Code & Form one of the most important resources for whom is interested in the computational aesthetics.
He is Marius Watz, he comes from Norwey but is adopted by Berlin , one of the most representative and authoritative person on an international level of the alliance among art, experimentation and communication, which many artist and professionals of the world of electronics and digital culture are searching today. His graphic tables, his generative settings rich of colours and shapes, were exposed in the main expositive centres and also used to accompanied the most important international festivals of electronics, how it happens this year at the Club Transmediale Festival.
Tied to the techno underground culture from which he comes from, also the human side of this unique artist reflects this background; who is able to dialogue with intelligence both with institutions and clubs, art and market, codes of programming and the aesthetics deriving from them. Born as a graphic designer, today he is a code artist and aesthete, a live artist and lecturer, blogger (his visiting card demonstrates this) and expert of new media communication. He is a professional and artistic hybrid tipical of our age and indicative of what will happen in a future we hope will be very soon.
