Mogens Jacobsen

Mogens was born in Italy and is living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
He has been working with digital art, objects, and installations since the early nineties, and he was one of the pioneers of Danish internet art. In 1992 he cofounded the Danish net-art collective "The Artnode Foundation". His works focus on the temporal and material aesthetics of systems, processes, instructions, and code. His artworks often take the form of machines or devices that critically and humorously examine technology and our everyday lives coping with technology.

Mogens' work has been exhibited at numerous national and international venues, among others the Media Art Festival in Japan, FILE in Brazil, ZKM in Germany, the Transmediale in Germany, and the Ars Electronica in Austria. In 2018, he completed a large-scale interactive sculpture in the city of Vallensbæk outside Copenhagen. The Danish Arts Foundation commissioned this pioneering piece as the first permanent interactive electronic sculpture in outdoor public space in Denmark.

Mogens Jacobsen teaches experimental and critical design at the IT University of Copenhagen. He often works in interdisciplinary collaborative groups on research projects.
