Ken Rinaldo


Ken Rinaldo is internationally recognized for interactive art installations that develop hybrid ecologies with human, machine, plant, and animal. These serve as experiments in constructing idealized social, biological and machine symbionts. His work interrogates fuzzy boundaries and posits that as new machinic & algorithmic species arise.

We need to better understand the complex intertwined ecologies that machinic semi-living species may create. Focused on trans-species communication Rinaldo seeks to critically empower animal, insect, bacterial and emergent machine intelligences. Rinaldo has exhibited in over 30 countries earning him an Award of Distinction at Ars Electronica Austria and first prize for Vida 3.0 Spain for Autopoiesis.
