Stahl Stenslie (NO)

The technological focus in his works is on the art of the recently possible – such as i) panhaptic communication on Smartphones, ii) somatic and immersive soundspaces, and iii) open source, disruptive design for disruptive technologies. His PhD is on Touch and Technologies from The School of Architecture and Design, Oslo, Norway. Currently he works as the Head of Research and Development Department at Kulturtanken – Arts for Young Audiences Norway. He is editor of the upcoming publication Electronic Art in Norway (2018).
