Cyanne van den Houten (1994) is a designer and media-artist based in Utrecht.
She graduated from the Design Department at Sandberg Instituut in 2017, as a founder of Telemagic.
Acting as an open media-lab, art-meets-tech collective Telemagic creates manifestations, art interventions,
and tools that focus on a closer human connection towards tech developments.
Like worlds first ever Paranormal Technology Fair, the rebuild funfair machines predicting your
digitale fortune and upcoming: the algorithm as musician in a concert of the future.
Telemagic makes sense of technological mysteries revolving around the digital
extensions and intentions of mankind, often in collaboration with other artists and makers.
Collaboration and amplifying a diverse range of activist voices is key to Cyanne her energetic practice.
In diverse formations, she curates and frames programs and artistic interventions; like for EMP.FM (a local
pirate-radio station with a range of 300 meters), Telemagic (like the 1 Euro Cinema and TeleState) and
De Internet Gids (as image-editor).
Parallel to Telemagic, Cyanne is mainly active as digital agency Tripcode.biz where she
specializes in art direction, video, web and visual communication.
Her main interest lies in: how humans emote through machines, avantgardistic youth-culture,
tangible media and new ways of immersive storytelling and simulation.
This mentality mirrors itself in; the interactive fashionshow + garnments for NIEUW JURK,
a game-experience about content moderators, tech-savy images for Vice, a temporary future gym with
hyped fitness equipment during ZEST and upcoming assets for a generative avatar system with OSCity.
