Mukul Patel works with various and hybrid media: sound, text, light, networks. Sound works range from generative site-specific installations to composed suites for contemporary choreographers. Strong influences include the work of OULIPO, and Indian art music, of which he is a continuing student. Since 2001, he has codirected Ambient Information Systems (AIS) with Manu Luksch. AIS conceives and produces critical intermedia projects, events, and tools that deal with concrete contemporary issues at the interface of social and technical infrastructure: access, privacy, surveillance. In 2008, Mukul directed residencies at the AIS studio in East London for artists from New York, Vienna, Helsinki, and Tokyo. A major publication by AIS is forthcoming in Spring 2009.
