Marius Watz
works with visual abstraction through generative systems and parametric processes that are realized as pieces of software. His work is known for its bold colors and strong geometric composition. For live performance he creates visual software instruments that use the live sound signal as a parameter, mapping image to sound in a synaesthetic union. He performed live with artist such as Håkon Kornstad, Wibutee, Phonophani and SISU.

In 2005 he started
Generator.x, a platform for generative art and design. Marius Watz's work are represented by [DAM]Berlin and LUMAs. He is currently based in New York.
