BNSL Studio is the collaborative practice of Maurice Wald and Felix Ansmann. Via a range of artistic media, we explore the aesthetics of artificial intelligence and ontologies of computation. With backgrounds in AI-engineering and the Anthropology of technology respectively, we investigate computational modes of thinking and their histories, understanding ourselves as a hybrid between artistic practice and research platform.
BNSL Studio was founded in 2019 and is based in Berlin. Beyond our artistic practice, we are interested in new technologically enabled models for art economies and ecologies existing as self-organized systems outside established institutions. BNSL Studio is also active as a production studio and consultancy for digital art and exhibition making.
Our works have been shown internationally in the US, Poland and Israel. We have been awared the Niio x AI Art Prize 2019/20 alongside works by Jakob Kudsk Steensen, Chris Kore, Pascual Sisto and Eyal Gruss. Furthermore, we have realized projects for Univeristy College London Urban Lab, Theater Münster and English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Centre.
