Hello, my name is Patrik. I am an interdisciplinary artist and designer.
I develop creative algorithms. To explore and push the boundaries of art and design. I apply the creative potential of generative design-strategies to build novel forms of visual communication and interaction.
Drawing from a rich background of 10+ years as a Creative Director for leading national and international brands, I constantly cross the boundaries of art and design. I devote my time to artistic and cultural projects. And I collaborate with companies to explore meaningful, fresh forms of branding and web-experiences.
In a world, defined by digital metaphors and caught in a spiral of ever-increasing complexity, communication is continuously moving towards a broader range of non-linear forms of dynamic content and experiences. Content, that both demands and fosters new approaches to expressing and evolving ideas while facilitating exciting and novel forms of dialogue.
In this world, traditional tools, approaches and mindsets become more and more obsolete as they are not or only partially able to express the more complex narratives that are shaping within the realm of a “digital native audience” and its natural relationship to a digital and virtual world.
These notions are what shape my motivation to research programming languages as a means of developing algorithmically driven art and design-systems. To build my own tools. And to utilize their inherent capabilities of speed, freedom, randomness, versatility and power. And even to ask completely new questions while postulating new theories and new patterns of thought.
“In an advanced technological culture the most important artist best succeeds by [..] transforming artistic and technological decision-making into a single activity.”
