Visual artist

Christian Bøen (born 1978) is a visual artist graduated from Bergen Academy of Art and Design. He works with digital and interactive art and uses game engines and 3D technology to create art games and installations. He often mixes self-composed sound and music with the visual and has released six albums under the artist name Termodress.

Since 1999, Bøen has worked with 3D animation and modelling and in 2015 he started the project and indie game company Surrealist. The idea and name are inspired by the Surrealists and the Dadaists who used games as a tool in their artistic exploration in the 1920s. Bøen has exhibited at KRAFT, Agder Kunstsenter, Arendal Kunstforening, Galleri Vikerødegården and Vestlandsutstilling.
