Tilen Sepic - artist

Tilen Sepič is a multidisciplinary designer, new media artist and promoter of “open source” culture. His experience with light is manifesting in light-design objects, iot design, product photography and light installations. Currently he is developing a practice on research and development of his own products in fields of light design, internet of things and new-media art.

 

Tilen’s work focuses on the fundamentals, exposing its key technology, material, function or cause. Lately he is promoting experience design over material styling with ten years of experience in industrial design and production.His work in light design objects and installations is currently focused on how the artificial light affects the brain, changing the mood, experience and productivity, the same way natural light does. His passion for playing with sensory inputs gives him the edge to work in interactive design and art installations.

With ongoing research of new media and latest technologies, he is consulting or holding many workshops, currently specialised in “Internet of things” design and open source digital manufacturing systems, that would lead to more sustainable way of creating everyday objects, researching their future values and also potential dangers that these technologies could and will bring in our everyday life.

His experiences with light can be also seen in (studio) product photography, motion photography and interactive photography works which are focused on fast evolving web and mobile media. With many blogs and websites, he experiment in viral behavior and alternative publishing of video/photo original content.
