Laura Welzenbach is a project manager focusing on art, technology and politics. Mediation and public engagement is at the center of her work. Most recently, Laura was head of the artist in residency programme at Eyebeam in New York and managing director of the sound:frame festival in Vienna. She received a research grant from the Austrian Federal Chancellery and studied cultural management, theatre, film and media studies as well as European studies. Today she is in charge of EU projects at Ars Electronica.
Markus Dorninger is an Austrian artist and designer focused on interactive light projections as an experiential and transformational medium. His work comprises interventions in public space, as well as stage performances and art installations.
After embarking on a video game design career in the UK, he began to explore alternative forms of interactive creativity. In 2005 he returned to Austria to team up with brother Josef Dorninger and friend Matthias Fritz, searching for ways to tell visual stories live on the theatre stage. The result was Tagtool, a visual live instrument which facilitates new forms of public art and education, and has since spawned an active worldwide user community.
In 2007, the trio founded the arts production company OMAi, short for Office for Media and Arts International. Ever since, OMAi has collaborated with partners from different fields of expertise, seeking to create experiences that transcend conventional ways of experiencing, understanding and learning.
