Andreas Schlegel works and teaches across disciplines. He develops artifacts, tools and interfaces where art and technology meet in a curious way. Many of his works are collaborative and concerned with emerging and open source technologies. In his artistic practice he creates audio, visual and physical outcomes driven by computation, interaction and networked processes.

Currently he lives and works in Singapore where he heads the Media Lab at Lasalle College of the Arts. His work at the lab is practice-based, collaborative and interdisciplinary in nature and aims to blur the boundaries between art and technology.
