Flowing Material


designer; COMPOSER and light designer

Kenji Tanaka (studies in Recording Arts, SAE Berlin; Bachelor of Arts, Middlesex University London, 2008) wrote his diploma thesis on the subject of stereophony. Since then he has been working in sound art for over a decade as well as in the field of light design for performing arts. Fascinated by the practice around art and artificial intelligence, he collectively engages with the phantom AI. The Covid-19 pandemic reinforces his interest in making art forms designed for sensory experience three-dimensional beyond the spatial boundaries of venues. 
In "SLOW ROOMS" (narrative spatial installation, 2019), "Wüste Zukunft" ("desert future")(VR film, Haus der Statistik, Berlin 2020), "Social Capsule" (immersive spatial installation, Monopol Berlin, 2021), and the sound and spatial installation "AI Forest" (Ars Electronica Festival, Linz, 2021), Tanaka has collaborated with artists such as Theresa Reiwer, Alisa Tretau, Anne Brammen, David Egger, and Birke van Maartens.

He furthermore is a producer and live act in the Berlin and international club scene for more than 10 years.
