Dr. Andreas Zingerle

In Sep. 2016 he completed his Ph.D. studies at the University of Art and Design Linz (Austria), researching topics such as Internet cime, vigilante counter-movements and anti-fraud activism. He implements social engineering strategies that emerge in his research into interactive narratives, artistic installations, data visualizations and creative media competence trainings.

More about his thesis “Artistic anti-fraud activism against online advance fee fraud”.

In 2009 he received a ‘Magister Artium’ (Mag.art.) degree from the Interface Cultures Department (initiated by Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau in 2004). 2009-2010 he worked as a HCI researcher and artist for the Patchingzone in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, followed by a year of Artist in Residence programs in Europe and Asia (Seoul (Korea) and Beijing (China)). During 2012-2016 he gathered teaching experience as university assistant and lecturer at the “Time based and Interactive Media” Department,  University of Art and Design Linz (Austria). Besides this he collaborated with the Linz based net&culture hub ‘servus.at‘ in a 1,5 year research project called ‘Behind the Smart World‘ which included organizing an ArtLab, a symposium, an exhibition as well as editing a publication.

In the last years he worked on several installations exploring a creative (mis)use of technology, issues of cyber-security and alternative ways of Human Computer Interaction. These works have been exhibited since 2004 at international conferences and in exhibitions, among others Ars Electronica, Siggraph, Siggraph Asia, Japan Media Arts Festival, ISEA, Steirischer Herbst, FILE Festival, ELO conference, WRO Biennial. Since 2011 his research has been published in conference proceedings and as journal articles amongst others at ISEA, CyberWorlds, Hyperrhiz, ICIDS, xCoAx, CCC, Media-N.

KairUs Art+Research

Since 2010, Andreas has collaborated with the Finnish artist and researcher Linda Kronman forming the ‘KairUs Art+Research’ collective. They have worked with the thematic of Internet fraud and online scams, constantly shifting their focus and therefore approaching the theme from a  number of perspectives like: data security (e.g. the artwork ‘Password******’ or the AMRO research lab: ‘Behind the Smart World’), ethics of vigilante communities (e.g. the artwork ‘Monitoring Harry Brooks’ or the ‘419 fiction’ workshops), narratives of scam e-mails (e.g. the artworks ‘Faceless Patrons’, ‘Re:Dakar Arts Festival‘), scam & technologies (e.g. the artwork ‘Let’s talk Business’ or the artwork ‘Megacorp.‘). Find more projects at kairus.org or download the portfolio (pdf).
