Having studied photography, neuroscience, medicine and architecture, Warren Neidich (b. 1958, New York, USA) brings to any discussion platform a unique interdisciplinary position that he calls “trans-thinking.” He currently uses video and neon to create cross pollinating conceptual text-based works that reflect upon situations at the border zone of art, science and social justice.
