Sascha Pohflepp (*1978, Germany) is interested in science and technology and their myths and realities, how they are reflecting our hopes for transcendence and how they are shaping the reality of our world. He has worked with numerous artistic and scientific collaborators on projects ranging from the microcosm of synthetic biology to the macrocosm of space exploration. Grants and Residencies include an EPSRC Knowledge Transfer grant, a residency in the Synthetic Aesthetics project and a residency at Art Center College Pasadena. Recent exhibitions include Talk To Me at MoMA New York, New Order at the Mediamatic Foundation Amsterdam and Photographing the Future at the Moscow Center for Contemporary Art. His work will also be part of the upcoming group shows The New Atlantis at Km Temporaer Berlin and Grow Your Own at Science Gallery Dublin. His essay on the notion of living machines will be published in a forthcoming book Synthetic Aesthetics by MIT Press. Sascha Pohflepp holds an MA in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art London and a degree in media art from The Berlin University of the Arts.
