About Harm van den Dorpel

Berlin-based artist Harm van den Dorpel is interested in systems of language, art, and the internet. While much of his work exists as ephemeral Web sites that he programs, such as Deli Near Info, an online curatorial project or “algorithmic studio,” he also creates multimedia work for the gallery space, including layered wall pieces and psychedelic-colored sculptures in printed plastic. With an interest in the philosophy of technology, Van den Dorpel explores the tension between physical artworks and digital platforms to think about the way we organize information today.

Netherlandish, b. 1981
