    Angelo Vermeulen

    Founder & Director, Space Ecologies Art and Design
    4096

    Angelo Vermeulen is an artist, biologist, space scientist, and community organizer. In his work he ties together technological, ecological, and social systems through group engagement and collaboration. 'Biomodd' is one of his most well-known art projects and consists of a worldwide series of interactive art installations in which computers and ecology coexist. In 2009 he launched 'Space Ecologies Art and Design (SEAD)', a platform for artistic research on the architectures and ethics of space colonization. ‘Seeker’ is one of the resulting projects involving co-created spaceship sculptures that evolve over time. He is a member of the European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS), and was the Crew Commander of the NASA funded 2013 HI-SEAS Mars simulation in Hawaii. His space-related work led him to start a new PhD at Delft University of Technology, developing paradigm-shifting concepts for evolvable starships.
