Coralie Vogelaar explores human bodily knowledge in combination with technical binary systems, and analyses what happens within the communication of the two. Her work consist of systematically conducted studies in which she combines - in an intuitive manner - different research methods from different disciplines. Both her background and interest are interdisciplinary, and she works together with (data)scientists, creative coders, actors, dancers and choreographers.

She is teachig at Artez Arnhem and is an alumnus of the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam (2009–2011) Recent exhibitions were in HeK (House of electronic Arts Basel), ZKM - Karlsruhe, Veem House for Performance, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Kunstverein Kassel, Science gallery Dublin, Impakt Festival Utrecht, UnArt Museum Shanghai, Noorderlicht Festival, Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, MU Artspace, V2 - lab for the unstable media, FOMU - Antwerp, SPRING Festival Utrecht and Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen. She currently is doing a residency at TU Eindhoven Innovation Lab.

I explore human bodily knowledge in combination with technical binary systems, and analyses what happens within the communication of the two.

My work consist of systematically conducted studies in which I combine - in an intuitive manner - different research methods from different disciplines. Both my background and interest are interdisciplinary, and I work together with (data)scientists, creative coders, actors, dancers and choreographers.

Working method:




Observation computer vision based human detection


Formulate a simple open question from a personal interest


Think of an interesting research methods intuitively suitable for the question


use methods from other
fields or new emerging technologies in a different way

↓ ↑


observe the visual effect (look for the visceral!)


Be aware that a clear research can be repeated


Believe simple ideas can produce complex systems


Allow yourself to be surprised by the outcome


it can result in multi-layered and multiple works


Be honest
