Martin Fröhlich studied Mechanical engineering and Media art at the University of Northeastern Switzerland. His work oscillates between arts and technology, and ranges from computer animations to interactive art spaces, from experimental digital music interfaces to video mapping software, to spatial augmented reality toolsets. His recent works include the “Mossprinter” (2011), a mechatronic device that prints moss onto house walls; “MeshWarpServer” (2012), a versatile and open source video mapping software frequently used by video artists around the world; or the “IMPOD” (2013), short for Impersonating Overhead Display, a helmet with a rotating strip of LEDs that creates a cylindrical screen around the wearers head. He conceptualizes his artworks or inventions as tools to alter the audience mode of perception and reflection.
