Paul Kolling (*1993) lives and works in Hamburg and Berlin. His recent works deal with infrastructural and economic processes and their integration into environmental and social structures. His research into and (re-)appropriation of emerging technologies is rearranged to reveal new perspectives that can be obscured through complexity and rhetoric. The outcomes are technological systems, installations and hybrid objects that strive to make complicated issues accessible.

Paul is one third of terra0.org. His (other) projects range from objects and installation works for exhibits and galleries to publications, lectures and panel discussions. They have been presented and discussed at Ars Electronica, Biennale de Lyon, Furtherfield Gallery, Drugo More, re:publica, Schinkel Pavillon, transmediale and Vienna Biennale (amongst others).
