Philip Ullman― Artist
Philip Ullman is an Amsterdam based artist, recently graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, mainly working in video. Philips work often deals with characters and locations that are situated somewhere between entertainment and technological development. Working mainly in 3D animation, this medium is used as a platform to question its inherent implications of mass produced entertainment and technological innovation. Philip tries to see beyond the anthropomorphised facade, seeing these characters as struggling with agency of their own, stuck between simulations and materialities, living on the brink of escaping its creator.
