F.A.B.R.I.C.A.T.O.R.S. (Franz Fischnaller)
Born in Bolzano, Italy. Franz Fischnaller studied art and design in Germany, Italy and USA. He has undertaken the development of design, art and technology in the creation of installations, artworks and techniques that will permit new possibilities for the integration of art and technology and confront the reality of “Man&art-Machine&art-interface&art”. Coming from a background in the fine arts he likes to mix the “classical medium of art” with the “uptodate-non classical media”, which he defines as “Franz's Uptodates”. He is the art-director and project-coordinator of F.A.B.R.I.CATORS, an interdiciplinary group concerned with the integration of technology+ communication+art+design. The group carries out research activities in the artistic and technological fields.
