Peter Crnokrak

Biography

Peter Crnokrak is a London-based computational artist who uses data visualisation as a medium for social critique. Creating work under the nom de guerre The Luxury of Protest, projects address the ever changing reference point of reality and experience, with a focus on what it means to be human and

the evolution of cultural self-awareness. The practice is an experimental platform that utilises algorithmic language to communicate meaning in complex systems. Works are created for biennials, exhibitions and galleries that integrate research, art and new technologies with a sharp focus on the

extremes of societal behaviour as a means by which to characterise the human condition.

Peter’s work has been featured in over 100 books and magazines and has been exhibited internationally including Tokyo (3331 Arts Gallery), Linz (Ars Electronica), New Orleans (SIGGRAPH) and New York (AIGA Gallery).

In 2010, Peter was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in recognition of award winning expertise in design and data visualisation – with particular recognition of work that addresses the impact of conflict on populations and human society.
