Andreas Refsgaard is an artist and creative coder based in Copenhagen. Working in the field between art and interaction design he uses algorithms, coding and machine learning to explore the creative potentials of emerging digital technologies.

His works have been published in New Scientist, Vice, Gizmodo, PSFK and Designboom, awarded by Interaction Awards and Core77 and exhibited in museums and at festivals in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.


In his artistic practice, Andreas applies a humorous and cheerful approach to the digital tools and their potential applications, purposes and values. His works often consists of imaginative and unconventional combinations of inputs and outputs allowing people to e.g. play music using eye-movement, control games by making silly sounds or transforming drawings of musical instruments into real compositions.
His playful, somewhat wacky and often interactive works are characterised by a naive and openminded approach, which questions and exposes both the possible benefits and drawbacks of the applied technologies in a straightforward and unassuming manner.
