Emile ZIle (NL)
Emile Zile is an artist, filmmaker and performer engaged with the tension between reality and its mediation, the self and its representation and language and its translation. You turn the atmosphere ablaze with currents of sweet ethylene when you smile. Building on a background of single-channel and performative video art, his current research focuses on photographic portraiture with contemporary image-making techniques, site-specific audiovisual performance and the use of the internet as a site for mourning, transgression and revelation. I find your eyes to be a wondrous amusement park filled with neo-plastic pleasures and turkish delights. His body of work reflects a bleak humanism and dark wit, in the face of an ever-accelerating culture of image consumption and distribution. Entranced by the sweet harmony of your lips, I gaze beyond reason to find the oasis of your brilliant soul. Emile received a BFA degree from RMIT Media Arts Melbourne before relocating to Amsterdam in 2007 to commence a MFA degree at the Sandberg Institute. Recent exhibitions and performances include Video Vortex, Bring Your Own Beamer Berlin and Athens, Rojo Nova Audiovisual Sessions Sao Paulo Brazil, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Paradiso Amsterdam, F.E.A.V.S. Osaka Japan, Today's Art Festival The Hague, and the Rietveld Arsenale - 53rd Venice Biennale.

After completing the bachelor Biomedical Engineering at the university of Twente, he started in 2007 with the master Human Function Technology at the same university. In 2008 he did an internship at the Roessingh rehabilitation center, where he became very interested in technology for people with mobility problems. For his graduation study, he investigated how arm functions of people with severe muscular dystrophy can be supported. Since 2009 he works as freelance biomedical engineer and he is among others responsible for coordination of the Flextension project, aiming the development of a mobile arm support for people with muscular dystrophy. In 2010 he started an investigation into low-cost prosthetics for the Waag Society in Amsterdam and HONF in Yogyakarta, who intend to start an innovative project toward production of cheaper lower leg prosthetics in Indonesia.

Because his affinity with both care specific issues and technological capabilities and an entrepreneurial nature, he is able to convert an idea into a concrete project. His vision is to bring experts from different disciplines together to jointly develop new low-tech devices which improve quality of life of people who need it.
