Evelina Domnitch (b. 1972, Minsk, Belarus) and Dmitry Gelfand (b.1974, St.
Petersburg, Russia) create sensory immersion environments that merge physics,
chemistry and computer science with uncanny philosophical practices. Having
dismissed the use of recording and fixative media, their artworks exist as evertransforming phenomena offered for observation. The duo’s practice has emerged
through unorthodox collaborations with pioneering research groups, including LIGO
(Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory), RySQ (Rydberg Quantum
Simulator) and the EU Quantum Flagship. They are recipients of the Witteveen+Bos
Award (2019), Meru Art*Science Award (2018), Japan Media Arts Excellence Prize
(2007), and five Ars Electronica Honorary Mentions (2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2017).
