Media artist Geert Mul (b.1965) studied at the Academy of the Arts at Arnhem where he specialized in computer animation (1985 graduated 1990). Since 1993 Mul lives and works in Rotterdam, Holland.

For almost 20 years now Mul has researched the possibilities of re-combining images from databases in video’s, prints and interactive installations. For these purposes Mul is continuously developing software: programs that generate a context related, endless and varying combination of images based on image properties such as content, structure, composition and color. In his recent work, Mul is developing a critical artistic perspective on ‘data mining’ and ‘data visualization‘.

From 2000 on Mul has exhibited site-specific installations and art-works in Holland (Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam), U.S.A. (Museum of contemporary Art Chicago), Italy (Biennale for emerging Artists Torino), Spain (Sonar, Museo Nacional Reina Sofia, IVAM), France (Catier Foundation Paris) India (National Gallery of Modern Art), Japan (Museum of Modern Art Kyoto), China (3rtd Triennale-Chengdu) and South Africa (Soweto, Grahamstown)

Between 2003 and 2011 Mul has produced over fifteen commissioned interactive installations in public spaces including the Nederlands Photo Museum, several schools and the Middelburg city hall. In 2010 Geert Mul won the prestigious Dutch Witteveen+Bos Art & Technology Award for his oeuvre.
