BERND AICHBERGER, Mag.art

Ever since I studied “Experimental visual design” at the art school in Linz I have been fascinated by the possibilities of digital media production and have been developing these skills in tune with the exponential development of both hardware and software. Besides my art and design theory education my spectrum of skills includes drawing, video production and 3D and 4D animation.

Alongside these technical competences in representation (a)iBerg offers first and foremost the inspiring idea. The challenge of collaborating with Kraftwerk Living Technologies, a leading entertainment technology company, has always been to find the optimum between vision and realization, attraction and sustainability.

Since 2013 i´m managing Eclectic Arts GmbH, a unique design & visualization agency responsible for multidimensional project visualization and planning.

As a member of Attraktion! GmbH´s group of companies, our profession is to merge artistic and entertaining strategies with sustainable edutaining contents. Therefore we are constantly pushing the boundaries of existing practice and exploring new ways to connect with audiences.

In this way visionary power and ingenuity bond with technical know how and extensive professional experience.
