About Us

Babekühl /babe*cool/ is a new-media art collective and creative studio. We are a post-disciplinary mix of artists, designers, musicians, photographers, animators, and film-makers with a deep portfolio of multimedia projects. Our work has been commissioned by Vivid festival, Adidas, Justin Bieber, Sam Smith, the Free Nationals, Flight Facilities, the DMA’s, Red Bull, Spotify, Sony among others.

We seek to further understand the world around us, and our place within it. We create new media art without boundaries; art that interacts with – and responds to – its surrounding environment.

At Babekühl, technology and alternative realities are at the core of our practice. We feel compelled to use new and old technology-applying it in layered, collaborative and experimental ways. In our studio, full spectrum imaging, macrography, Lidar scanning, photogrammetry, VHS, AI and code based art tools and data-driven, generative imageries are used interchangeably.

In developing this methodology, we have collectively become infatuated with the process of creating distorted, pastiche-like realities observed through a technologically enhanced lens. We call this our own form of techno-expressionism.

Our work is accessible, autonomous, experimental, and crucially, ever-evolving.
