About Mischa

Mischa Daams (1986, NL) is an artist that composes for the senses, while researching the space in between the physical and virtual.

His work has been shown (inter)nationally in exhibitions and events like Lab.30 [DE], Fiber Festival [NL], Athens Video Art Festival [GR], Rewire [NL], Luminous [GR], Foam Photography Museum [NL], Interference Festival [NL] and Wrong Titled Films: [LT/NL].

His artistic practice consists of experiential environments, performances and films that often result from situated processes in which simple choreographies convey complex patterns in wind, light and/or sound.

His constructed spatial environments - in which chaotic choreographies of tactile air convey complex patterns of light and sound - border on the ideas of expanded cinema, a term that draws meaning in the way that the audience is stripped from its fixed gaze in order to become spatially engaged, leaving a heightened or even distorted sense of awareness.

The sensory constructions in Mischa’s work reveal the limitations of our senses, call into question how much of our objective world is being ‘coloured’ by us and challenges the observer-participant to re-consider the intertwined relationship between our subjective apparatus and the ‘external’ world.

Mischa currently lives and works in The Hague, Netherlands
