We cover topics such as creative fullfillment, exploring the internet and remaining motivated. Learn more about Rainar in today's episode and read his bio below and check out his website where his works are hosted.
Rainar Aasrand is a transdisciplinary artist. Among other things, he explores the human condition within the realm of technology and expanded nature. His work draws on interdependent and often awkward relations between humans, natural phenomena, and new technologies aiming to reveal and exacerbate, with both humour and gravity. This is a quest to find ways to explore the production of culture through aesthetic means while remaining personal and accessible.
In 2017 Rainar graduated from MIT Program in Art, Culture, and Technology, where he further developed his interest in the statistical quantification of human activities and how this is altering, creating, and bending social and cultural norms. Before MIT, Rainar studied cultural theory at Maastricht University and the Estonian Institute of Humanities. He has worked on various film and theater productions, and is part of the SKATKA collective.
