Computer artist. Born 1978 in Russia. Working with diverse methods, technologies and materials, Danja ridicules the contemporary affection for digital life and questions the global tendency for cyborgination. The works of the artist are often described as technological interventions, be it hardware, software or conceptual pieces. Network and Internet technology, especially in regard to ‘Network as the new World’, is the artist’s latest interest. He is currently developing several special devices that will become new tools of the digital interventionist. Since 2004 his work is based exclusively on free and open source software. In 2007 he co-founded Moddr medialab in Rotterdam, and in 2011 Weise7 in Berlin. Lives in Berlin and New York.
