Daniel Landau (Hebrew: דניאל לנדאו; born 1 March 1973) is an Israeli entrepreneur,[1] artist,[2] and researcher.[3] His work in the field of virtual reality has been presented in museums, festivals, and conferences [4] worldwide. Landau is involved in the Israeli startup scene, [5] developing behavioral assessment and learning [6] tools using virtual reality.[7]

Biography[edit]

Daniel Landau was born and raised in Jerusalem.[8] He completed his Master's degree at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.[8][9][10] During his studies, Landau wrote music for Dutch contemporary music ensembles, such as Nieuw Ensemble, Orkest de Volharding, and Slagwerkgroep Den Haag, performing his works at concert halls and festivals, including The Concertgebouw and Paradiso Festival.[8]

In 2001, Landau established the art collective BZAZ Foundation, which created full-length media shows. These shows toured Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Mexico, Spain, England, and Israel, receiving positive reviews by media and audiences.[11]

Landau lived in the Netherlands for ten years[11][12] and returned to Israel in 2006. He then began work on a performance platform based on projection and movement.[13]

In 2008, in collaboration with artists, dancers, engineers, and designers, Landau created the British-Israeli stage production One-Dimensional Man.[13] The show was a direct continuation of Landau's interest in the relationship between the human body and technology. It took place at the Suzanne Dellal Center for Dance and Theater, receiving positive reviews.[11][10][14][15] Landau also created a series of works called 'Reside', using a docu-performance platform that he had established.[14][16]

In 2014, Landau established the 'Oh-Man, Oh-Machine' platform, through which he initiates international conferences, workshops, salon meetings, and a research group [17] intended to promote a techno-social critical discourse using the philosophical framework of Posthumanism.[18] In 2013–2015, he served as head of digital media studies at The Midrasha Faculty of the Arts, Beit Berl Academic College, Israel.[9][18]

Landau is currently serving as a senior research fellow at the Advanced Virtuality Lab (AVL) at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, Israel.[17][19] He has been invited to present his works at festivals and museums in Israel and overseas, including at the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra,[20][21][22] the Radio Filharmonisch Orkest, Maison européenne de la photographie in Paris,[23] the Centro-Historico Festival (Mexico), Bath International Music Festival (England), Kaserne (Switzerland), the Bartok Festival (Hungary),[8] and the Nakanojo Biennale (Japan).[24][25]

In 2017, he taught a winter semester at the Design and Media department at UCLA.[26]

Since 2016, Landau has been pursuing a PhD at the Aalto University Media Lab in Helsinki. [3]

Landau has lectured worldwide at major universities and various conferences and festivals, including at Stanford University, California [4] , California Institute of Technology [27] , San Diego State University [28] , Shenzhen Fair, China [29] , RIXC Festival, Latvia [30] [31] , Israel Society of Biological Psychiatry [32] , B3 Biennale, Frankfurt [33] , Haifa Film Festival, Israel, [34] and the Czech National Library of Technology [35]

Personal life[edit]

Landau's sister, Sigalit Landau, is also an artist.[10][18] [36] Landau is married to Michal Openheim Landau, a musician, composer, and vocal teacher. They live in Tel Aviv.[8]
