Niklas Roy is a Berlin based artist. He mainly works on mechatronic installations and devices. From time to time he carries out performances in which his inventions play a central role. Roy really doesn’t like to write about himself in the third person but he “is one of the most facetious characters of the ‘new media art’ world”.
Niklas spoke about his dance machine, moving curtain, ‘distributed’ fountains, white cube gallery in a box, physical teapot inside a Commodore cabinet and his electromechanical version of the game Pong. “Behind the playfulness of Roy’s machines, lay much irony and lucidity about the world of art & tech he belongs to.” – Regine Debatty
