    Initially trained in classical arts, Jānis Garančs works in technological and algorithmic art genres – interactive multi-media installations and performances, Virtual Reality, video, digital print and mixed material painting. His artworks are characteristic with inspiration from various concepts of contemporary theoretical physics, communication and evolution theories. The works can be a mixture of dystopian, ‘dark future vision’ with a slight touch of humour on the contemporary ‘common’ and ‘digital’ urban realities.

    Since 2000 Jānis Garančs focuses on stereoscopic imagery, immersive 3D sound and combination of complex programmed, algorithmic structures with spontaneous gestures and live improvisation on-stage. He has exhibited and presented his work internationally at venues and events including Ars Electronica (Linz), DEAF (Rotterdam), Transmediale (Berlin), ISEA (Helsinki 2004 and upcoming 2020 in Montreal), Society for Art and Technology (Montreal), RIXC Art and Science festival (Riga), Banff New Media Institute, EXPO 2000 World Exhibition Hanover, and others.
