Janus Fouché is a South African digital artist, working in multimedia projects that range from interactive electronic musical installations and animation to self-organizing biological systems laser-engraved onto paper.
He is best known as a collaborator, having worked with contemporary artists and composers such as William Kentridge, Blessing Ngobeni, Deborah Bell, Philip Miller, and João Orecchia.
Fouché focuses on the digital space as a parallel, abstract, but equally present universe, one with its own laws and aesthetics to be constructed, explored, and reflected upon, revealing the underlying systems and relationships of our own experience. Fragments of both worlds are pulled together to create new, unexpected relationships. Organic generative drawings of artificial life, collages of film, and animation meet motion-captured puppets and mechanical personifications.
