JANNIS KARALIS   projects about // contact  


Jannis Karalis is a Greek artist and interactive media designer based in The Hague, NL.

The main focus of his work has been on interactive installations and audio/visual projects. Karalis focuses on human nature, the relations between people and those between people and society. His work leads his audience into subjects such as birth, death, sexuality and violence, often without imposing a linear narrative. Art and design are used as tools to gain and transfer knowledge and to expand or alter both perception and consciousness of the audience.

Everything stems from the concept and the ideas that are sought to be conveyed; the medium is secondary.
