Personal profile

Research

Ulrik Schmidt is associate professor in Performance Design and Visual Culture at Roskilde University, Denmark, working in the intersection between contemporary art, architecture, sound studies, media philosophy and audiovisual aesthetics. Schmidt has published widely in English and Danish on various topics including architecture and movement; design and synthetic materiality; contemporaneity and withdrawal in contemporary art; format aesthetics; Phil Spector and sonic design; ubiquituous computing, contemporary sound art; pre-cinematic media; abstract film; Buster Keaton and the comedy of the masses; surreal documentary; psychedelic light art and visuals; material aesthetics; participation and art.

Schmidt has published two books: The Aesthetics of Minimalism (Museum Tusculanum, 2007, in Danish), a comparative study of the aesthetic principles in minimal art and music in the 1960s and 1970s. And The Ambient: Sensation, Mediatization, Environment (Aarhus University Press, 2013, in Danish), in which he explores the ambient as a leading aesthetic principle in modern art and culture from 1800 to the present, permeating urban design, audiovisual media technologies, modern architecture, installation art, sound art and light art, avant-garde film, electronic music and sound design, and digital design.
