Automaton Lab /

We are a collective of New Media artists with backgrounds from interactive media, creative coding, performance, installations, and design. Our goal is to find balance between artistic concept and aesthetics, we always attempt to tackle the problem from social-political, design, to relational among other interdisciplinary perspectives. We believe having strong roots enables us to reach for the sky and diversity of ideas and cultures is the key to the future.


VanTa / <> How to connect one thing to another!

VanTa is an experienced developer, with a strong focus in the field of computer graphics. In his creations, he always tries to find a balance between geometry, abstraction, and chaos. At the age of eight he left home and founded his own aerospace startup with very little venture capital, that operated from his parents’ porch. With a background in environmental science, his work revolves around the intersection between art, science, and technology. He loves when digital elements align with the real world; either in augmented reality overlays, projection mapping on architectural landmarks, or pixels floating in thin air. VanTa also performs as a VJ and musician in different locations and festivals around the world. When he finds the time, he teaches coding to designers and artists.
