Dmitry Morozov aka ::vtol:: is a transdisciplinary artist and researcher. He graduated from the Russian State University for the Humanities with a degree in Art History.
In his practice, Morozov focuses on contemporary media arts including sound, robotics and installation, placing special emphasis on the link between emergent systems and new kinds of technological synthesis. He conducts master classes and lectures on technological practices in art. As part of his ::vtol:: project (f. 2007), he has been creating interactive audio-visual installations, experimental electronic music, sound art and unconventional electronic musical instruments. Morozov describes his key engineering and creative principle as 'circuit bending' – the deliberate bringing of microcircuits and devices to extreme and unconventional operating modes, which is achieved by making chaotic changes in electrical circuits.
