His works includes live performances, sound-installations, compositions, electronic circuits, and collaborations with composers, musicians and visual artists.   Bas van Koolwijk Media artist Bas van Koolwijk uses both sound and image, be it analogue or in numerical code, as interchangeable data. He produces visual and acoustic compositions in which both manifestations powerfully interact. His works can often be seen as an attack on the illusion of the medium itself. Van Koolwijk develops his own hardware and software applications.   Tina Frank ina Frank (AT) is a graphic designer and media artist working as a professor of visual communication and the head of the Department for Graphic Design and Photography at The University for Art and Industrial Design in Linz. She started working with video and multimedia in the mid-1990s and has performed live at many music, film and multimedia festivals with musicians from the electronic music scene around the label Mego. Her video works, e.g., Chronomops (2006) and Vergence (2010), explore the boundaries of human visual perception and are shown regularly at exhibitions and festivals.
