His practice as a whole is syncretic between these disciplines, where core research questions are digested through making, thinking, discussion and collaboration. His background, a mixture of computer science, engineering, music and fine arts, creates a tenuous duality of intuition and efficiency that drives his artistic work. Jonathan is a co-founder of iii and of the Platform for Thought in Motion. He has curated programs at STEIM (Amsterdam) and Transmediale Festival (Berlin), and co-developed the Digital Media bachelors at the Institute for Culture and Aesthetics of Digital Media at Leuphana University’s cultural studies department.
