This week is the fourth in a series of six conversations from Luminous Green. I spoke with Angelo Vermeulen, a visual artist working with photography, video, new media and bio-inspired installations. Educated as a scientist (PhD in ecology, 1998, University of Leuven, Belgium) and trained in photography (at the Art Academy of Leuven), his work bridges the art-science divide. Angelo is regularly invited to give lectures on art, science and new technologies in universities and art institutes, and is a lecturer at the Institute for Higher Education in the Sciences & the Arts, Sint-Lucas in Ghent (B). He is working on his first book in partnership with art-philosopher Antoon Van den Braembussche on the relationship between art, technology and spirituality. In September Angelo begins an artist residency (and exhibition) at the Aesthetic Technologies Lab in Athens, Ohio.
