Bio

Kristoffer Ørum is an interdisciplinary researcher and artist based in Copenhagen, Denmark. His work deals with the impact digital technologies have on our contemporary everyday lives. He misuses and misunderstands ubiquitous technologies such as computer vision to wireless networks. Creating narratives that run counter to what the dominant narratives of fear and despondency.

His foundations in art world provide him with a base from which he teaches, writes, exhibits, and organises in a wide variety of contexts. From the self-organised to the institutional, in and outside of an art context.

He thinks of himself as an aggregator of material and ideas from a shared cultural sphere rather than an authoritative author. As such he maintains an “open practice” where he publishes and discusses his work on social media as it develops and changes.
