Dr. Christian Faubel
Interdisciplinary Researcher, Artist,
Academy of Media Arts, Cologne

Christian Faubel is an in(ter)disciplinary scholar working between the fields of autonomous systems research, neuroscience, media art, and design. In his work, he is interested in what enables complex and autonomous behavior, and how this may result from the interaction of very simple units and their co- and interrelations.
Christian Faubel considers his artworks, workshops, and performances to be in the tradition of philosophical toys as they combine the mediation of scientific concepts with pleasure and amusement. Via his artworks, he tries to convey insights about theoretical concepts from psychology, neuroscience, and robotics such as emergence or embodiment along an aesthetic dimension.


The talk will be held in English language.
