Harm van den Dorpel is a Berlin-based conceptual artist. His work has been exhibited internationally in Germany, the US, Italy, the UK and Holland. His broad practice includes the creation of sculpture, collage, computer animation, computer generated graphics and interaction design. He is regarded as a key figure in Post-Internet art. In his work he investigates how algorithms can analyse digital archives and guide the artist in aesthetic decision taking, leading to a symbiosis of man-machine art creation. Using computer programming he describes traditional notions in art, such as for example the free use of intuition and expression. Conclusions from this research are then fed back into the production of new work. His ultimate goal is to reveal the reasoning structure of his own consciousness, and his implicit associations and assumptions. In this process he borrows ideas from psychoanalysis, the writing of Jacques Derrida, and Artificial Intelligence (which he studied). His work has been internationally exhibited in galleries and museum such as MoMa PS1, The New Museum NYC and the Museum of Modern Art Warsaw.
