Jens A. Ewald (jens.a.e)
Jens lives and works in the north of Germany. He began studies in philosophy at the TU Darmstadt and, with detours to the TU and the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, ended up with a diploma on software and structural film at the Muthesius Academy in Kiel. Where he teaches at the interface design department as a research fellow since 2010. His teaching focuses on experimental practices with hard- and software, involving the Arduino platform, electronics and various ways of programming.
Since 2005 he is a fellow of the soundart collective staalplaat soundsystem, building software and electronics for different setups and situations – from hacking auto-rikshaws in New Delhi to combining mobile phones and trees with MIDI. But sometimes he also works freelance for wirmachenbunt and other clients in the need for vvvv plugins or strange protocol parsing.
In his personal work he focuses on sound and the relation of time, difference, duration and its perception.
