Angelo Vermeulen is a visual artist, a filmmaker, a biologist, and an author. His work as an artist is informed by his research in ecology, environmental pollution and teratology. These theoretical
influences are brought together in his bio installations: experimental setups which incorporate living organisms and references to science fiction.
Projects include Blue Shift [LOG 1], a Darwinian art project in collaboration with evolutionary biologist Luc De Meester, and Biomodd, a worldwide series of cross-cultural, symbiotic installations in which social interaction, ecology, and game culture converge. Besides developing Corrupted C#n#m#, an experimental cinema project that explores the physicality of digital media, he is currently also collaborating with the MELiSSA life support division of the European Space Agency.
Translucent Futures is Vermeulen's own activist/research platform examining the downfall of civil rights through digital and ubiquitous technologies. Together with Antoon Van den Braembussche, he is a co-author of the book Baudelaire in Cyberspace: Dialogues on Art, Science and Digital Culture.
Vermeulen regularly delivers lectures in Europe, Southeast Asia, and the U.S.A. He is an advisor at Sint-Lucas Visual Arts in Ghent and received a TED Fellowship in 2010.
