Alex van Giersbergen is currently based in Helsinki, Finland, born in the Netherlands. During his education in Rotterdam, he became influenced by the new media scene and media festival culture. He creates interactive works using custom software and electronics. His work focuses on every day routines and picks apart behavioural patterns. Over the years collaborations with other artists have become more central, which lead to varied projects that focus on sound and interaction. Currently van Giersbergen focuses on composing visual narratives to accompany sound and theatre performances.

Alex van Giersbergen has exhibited in the Netherlands and Finland, and performed in the United Kingdom, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway and Russia.
