George Koutsouris utilizes principles from science, engineering and acoustics to create playful art that explores the way we coexist. Through the study of mechanistic processes he investigates the concepts of order and chaos in our society and natural world, and he attempts to understand the impact the machining human behaviour has in our modern culture. Movement, constant change and cosmology are areas of research for Koutsouris’ work.
He mainly uses low-tech industrial materials and devices, such as wood, mechanical components, strings, motors and everyday objects, combined to sculptures and installations that involve motion and/or interaction with the spectator, who eventually becomes part of the artwork.
George Koutsouris graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2018. He owns a MSc in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens and a MSc in Acoustical Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark. He has also been trained in classical and rythmic music. George lives in Denmark since 2009. He works as an acoustical engineer at Odeon A/S and as an artist in Copenhagen.
