Alexander Miltsen is one of the leading Russian researchers and inventors in the fields of sonochemistry and acoustic physics. After completing a degree in radiophysics at the National University of Saint Petersburg, Miltsen developed a variety of instruments for the Novosibirsk nuclear reactor. He then moved back to Saint Petersburg, where he founded his own research lab, RICSO, which specialises in high-frequency acoustics and molecular synthesis.
Since 2004, he has worked closely with artists Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand on projects such as Camera Lucida: Sonochemical Observatory, Sonolevitation and Hydrogeny. At CTM the collaboration will continue in the context of the commissioned work “Force Field”, which uses sonolevitation to acoustically levitate a water droplet.
Alexander Miltsen appears at CTM 2016 with the kind support of the Creative Industries Fund NL (Stimuleringsfonds).
