Torsten Lauschmann

Torsten Lauschmann was born in Bad Soden, Germany and lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland
As an artist, filmmaker and live performer, Torsten Lauschmann celebrates glitches and out-takes, bits in between and images that might be easy to ignore. Over the past decade his work has evolved beyond straight photography and film works to investigate the mechanics of digital processes, software creation, experimental editing, approaches to performance and the sculptural potential of video installation. He creates new software for mixing AV freely available to all, holds workshops and screenings on video art practices, and produces sites specifically for other new media practices
Torsten Lauschmann studied Fine Art Photography at Glasgow School of Art and Media Art at HfG Karlsruhe (ZKM). Since graduating in 1997 he has been exhibiting and performing his artwork/videos/music/software in the UK and internationally
