Supervisor Meeting Time: Tuesday 8.30-11.30 in B.45

Pierre Proske is an electronic media artist, creative coder and designer specialising in immersive and interactive installations. Having worked extensively in Europe on various commissions and artistic projects in conjunction with organisations such as the Ars Electronica Futurelab and Future Applications Lab, his work involves exposing the unspoken relationships we have with technology as well as harnessing machines into exploring new aesthetics. He has a particular interest in the interface between the biological and synthetic, as well as the ways in which humans engage and form relationships with machines. Pierre has been creating custom artistic software for over a decade, which he routinely deploys in his installations. He is the founder of electronic media arts organisation Media Lab Melbourne and runs his own creative technology studio Sensory Empire.

Current Research Activities

Research interests include interactive installations, biologically inspired designs, small form factor electronics, sensory immersion, public art, lighting and sound design, generative design and open source methodologies.

Pierre is currently pursuing a PhD through RMIT School of Design where he’s developing a framework for low powered, networked, audio-visual installations in order to go off grid, explore new networked aesthetic modalities and mobility as well as better sustainably power his works.

Honours Interests

Open to all types of honours projects, not specifically those that fall within my interests.
