Eric Parren (NL / US) is an interdisciplinary artist operating out of Los Angeles. His work lives at the intersection of art, science, and technology and investigates the human connection to ideas and technologies that shape our future, such as artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, and space exploration. The works are often deeply sensory experiences dealing with modes of perception and the physics of light and sound. Through close study of the histories of media arts, composition, and film, Eric’s work makes connections between the past, the present, and what is to come. Eric hosts a bi-weekly radio show called La Force Sauvage on the artist run radio collective KCHUNG.
Eric studied at the Interfaculty ArtScience of the Royal Academy of Art and Royal Conservatory in The Hague, where he received his BFA in 2009. He went on to study at the Design Media Arts department of the University of California Los Angeles, where he was awarded his MFA in 2012. He has been exhibiting internationally since 2008.
