BIOGRAPHY FOR CHRISTIAN MOELLER:
Dipl. Ing (Diploma of Engineering), Frankfurt am Main Polytechnical University. A pioneer in the design of interactive architectural installations. He studied architecture at the College of Applied Sciences in Frankfurt and was a Scholarship holder under Gustav Peichel at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. He headed the ARCHIMEDIA research institute at the College of Design in Linz, Austria and was Professor at the College of Design in Karlsruhe, Germany before he moved to Los Angeles in 2001.
Bridging art and architecture, his work is informed by emergent digital media and how these media have transformed the landscapes of experience across multiple scales. By harnessing sound, light, weather conditions, motions, and human emotions, Moeller creates spaces that are responsive and manipulable. Exhibitions: two land-art installations in the historic Schloss Eggenberg Park, Graz, Austria; Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery, Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California; National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts; and the Science Museum, London. Publications: "A Time and Place," a monograph on Christian Moeller's work from 1991 to 2003.
