Profile: Media artist Scott Snibbe
He says his works are useless. But as useless as other works of art. And we all know that art is the only thing that really counts in this world. Besides hope, faith and love of course.
Scott Snibbe is a media artist, filmmaker, and researcher in interactivity. His works are strongly influenced by cinema: particularly animation, silent, and surrealist film; and often mix live and filmed performances with real-time interaction.
We talked to Scott at the Picnic Festival in Amsterdam in 2011. Picnic is an event about creative innovation and the future. A recent project of Scott’s is Biophilia, Bjork’s audiovisual iPad app album.
