Lukas Truniger in collaboration with Bruce Yoder

Lukas Truniger is a visual and sound artist, working with generative media in the broadest sense. He creates singular experiences challenging the modalities of perception, pinpointing unseen connections of artificial, natural and social systems to further blur their supposed division. He takes advantage of the mimetic nature of technology to develop speculative representations of transient aspects of our reality. These explorations can take the form of multimedia installations, artistic infrastructures, and performances.

Born in Zürich (CH), he lives and works in Paris. He obtained a music degree from the Robert Schumann conservatory, Institute of Music and Media (IMM) in Düsseldorf (D) and a post gradual diploma in fine arts from Le Fresnoy – studio national des arts contemporains in Tourcoing (F).

His work has been shown internationally since 2016 in institutions such as the HeK – House of electronic Arts (Basel), West Kowloon Cultural District (Hong Kong), V2_ (Rotterdam), Ludwig Museum (Budapest), Pearl Art Museum (Shanghai), Fondation Vasarely (Aix-en-Provence), Harvestworks (New York City) and La Villette (Paris) as well as at various festivals such as MMMAD Festival (Madrid), Ars Electronica (Linz), Mapping Festival (Geneva), Burning Man (Nevada), Sonica (Glasgow) and International Digital Arts Biennial / BIAN (Montreal).

Bruce is a senior research scientist at the ETH Zürich in the field of physical chemistry since 2017. His focus on the spectroscopy of aerosol particles and fundamental studies of light-matter interactions to bring a deeper understanding of our world. He is involved in multiple projects with the aerosol and nanoparticle group lead by Prof. Signorell at the ETH Zürich, as well as, collaborations at synchrotrons and free-electron lasers around Europe.

Born and raised in the midwest of the USA, Bruce first moved to Switzerland for his doctoral studies at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. He then went to the University of British Columbia in Canada for a postdoctoral fellowship awarded by the Fonds National Suisse.

Since 2018, he has collaborated on the art project ‘ethereal fleeting’ with the goal of generating moments and provoking thoughts through the reproduction of delicate balances found in nature by synthetic means. With special interest in the transitory nature of all existence and an affinity to juxtaposition, he was aims to challenge ideas that are too often held as self-evident.
