Rafael Lozano-Hemmer was born in Mexico City in 1967. In 1989 he received a B.Sc. in Physical Chemistry from Concordia University in Montréal, Canada.
He is an Electronic artist, develops large-scale interactive installations in public space, usually deploying new technologies and custom-made physical interfaces. Using robotics, projections, sound, internet and cell-phone links, sensors and other devices, his installations aim to provide "temporary anti-monuments for alien agency". He recieved a B.S. (Physical Chemistry with a minor in Art History) from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer began to rapidly explore the electronic arts.
Basically what he does as an artist, is project things onto buildings in a very radical way. He uses bold type and beautiful imagery. I think his work has great social influences also. He did one project where he established a link between Austria and Mexico, through very oddd historical references. This was interactive also, when people would walk by, it would activate the sensors, and people could interact with the huge projected piece. Which was on a beautiful facade of a castle in Vienna.
