Marius Kintel is a Norwegian hacker/ tinkerer/ engineer/ artist based in Vienna, Austria, who works with non-traditional materials and repurposes things and technology in unusual ways. Since the age of 12 he has actively worked with digital media, and has collaborated in numerous projects. His projects include multiple creations in the computer art subculture known as the demoscene, building a company in Norway that develops Open Source 3D graphics software, and developing self-replicating machines. In recent years his interests have begun to include working with electronics, physical computing and interactive installations. At the Vienna based hackerspace the Metalab, he participates in and teaches many programming and hacking projects including 3D graphics, Arduino, Processing and Open Frameworks. He is also actively exploring various physical processes such as robotics, wearable computing, laser cutting, 3D printing, and CNC milling. His recent exhibitions include Roboexotica (Vienna, AT) for four years running, Ars Electronica (Linz, AT), Hacking at Random (Vierhouten, NL), and Slobodni Festival (Cakovec, HR). His general approach to life and making is DIY, Open Source, and exploratory â€“ no system or process is impossible to understand â€“ it is simply something that hasnâ€™t yet been taken apart or put together.
