Short biography: 

Leon Cmielewski is an artist, animator and designer, he has worked in both print design and broadcast television design.
Over the past decade along with collaborator Josephine Starrs he has produced a range of video and interactive media projects which often use play as a strategy for engaging with the social and political contradictions inherent in contemporary life.

Some of their media artworks including Incompatible Elements, Waterways and sms_origins are situated at the juncture of cinema, information visualisation, and mapping, playing off the tensions between the large and small screen, and between information and sublime landscape.

Other public media art installations include: Seeker, an installation which explores issues of migration, territorial boundaries, conflict commodities and human displacement, which won an Award of Distinction in Interactive Art from the Prix Ars Electronica, Austria, a.k.a., a video about universal surveillance, the Trace interactive installation, Bio-Tek Kitchen a computer game patch, Dream Kitchen an interactive stop-motion animation and Floating Territories a game art installation.
