Background and Facts
Based in Vienna, artist Seth Weiner’s work in sound, space and material production is dedicated to the development of a practice of artistic research for which the formal limitations of material are the means for informed and undisciplined experiment.

In addition to further study at the New School’s Summer Art Studio (NY, 2006) and the Center for the Creation of Music Iannis Xenakis (Paris, 2006), he has also served as co-artistic director for the record label Care Of Editions (Berlin, 2012-present), provided design and art direction for Creative Rights Nonprofit (Detroit, 2011-2015), worked as an architectural designer at ZellnerPlus (LA, 2009-2011) and did research and design for Metropolitan Research & Economics (LA, 2010).
