Biography
Jacob Eriksen (Denmark, 1985) works as an artist and researcher in oscillations between artistic experimental practice and
theoretical conceptualisation, which in combination constitute a breeding ground for knowledge production and creativity.
His sound art, conceptual art and musical experiments addresses the crossovers between order and chaos,
synthesis and organism, repetition and difference, the human and non-human.

Currently lecturing at Berlin University of the Arts, Humboldt University of Berlin and Rhythmic Music Conservatory, Copenhagen.
Member of the Berlin based research colloquium KlangDenken/Sonic Thinking.
Co-organising the lecture series "At the Limits of Perception and Cognition" with Diana Ø. Tørsløv Møller.
