Ivor is an internationally recognized, award-winning technoshaman and cyberalchemist. His main obsessions are identity, the existence of space-time, of organic life and consciousness. Works in fields of neurocinema, mixed reality, game-art, bio-art, artificial life and virtual entities. Exhibiting internationally since 1999 at over a hundred new media art venues around the world. Received a number of prestigious awards and distinctions. He is the founder of _humane after people_ - an international art-science group addressing questions of the future of the human condition and aiming for a machine-unreadable humanity. Their projects strive to be detached from socially conditioned perception and our simian legacy as much as possible, and focus on what really matters: the human being as autonomous conscience in the unvoid. Ivor is from nowhere and lives on teh Internets.
