Angelo Vermeulen is a visual artist, filmmaker, biologist, and author. His research in ecology, environmental pollution and teratology informs his art, which includes bio installations, experimental setups incorporating living organisms and science fiction references. His projects include ‘Blue Shift’, a Darwinian art project in collaboration with evolutionary biologist Prof. Luc De Meester, and ‘Biomodd’, a worldwide series of cross-cultural, symbiotic installations in which social interaction, ecology, and game culture converge. Next to developing ‘Corrupted C#n#m#’, an experimental cinema project that explores the physicality of digital media, he currently also collaborates with the MELiSSA life support division of the European Space Agency. He co-authored the book ‘Baudelaire in Cyberspace: Dialogues on Art, Science and Digital Culture’ with philosopher Antoon Van den Braembussche, and lectures throughout Europe, Southeast Asia, and North America. He is Advisor at Sint-Lucas Visual Arts in Ghent, Belgium, Adjunct Professor at the University of the Philippines Open University, and a TED Fellow.
