Daan Brinkmann (Amsterdam, 1983) is a dutch media artist. His main preoccupation is creating
installation art. His installations can be autonomous or interactional.

A fond believer of the concept of Homo Ludens, his interactional works are mostly based on the
expressive potential of the spectator. The elements within such works are used to create social
experiences. Other pieces can be seen as explorations which center around visual perception,
spatiality, light and sound.

His work has been shown at renown art places such as the Stedelijk Museum, but it can just as well be
found in public space or at techno parties. His work has been shown at venues in Amsterdam,
Madrid, Finland, London, So paulo, Monaco, Paris, Berlin, Ghent, Warsaw, Ljubljana and Bucharest.
He has received prizes from the Dutch Institute for Media Arts and the City of The Hague.
