Stephan Schulz was born in East Berlin, Germany in 1978. He received a Masters in Interaction Design in 2005 from the Universität der Künste (UdK) in Berlin and received a Master of Fine Arts in Media Arts in 2007 from NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Stephan is a multi-disciplinary artist who uses electronic media and custom made software to create performative electronic installations. He makes use of new and used consumer appliances from windshield wipers to iPods. Having grown-up in East Germany, he is influenced by the custom of re-purposing appliances in order to build something new. His works are clever, and often humorous while underlining current societal issues. His public works and gallery installations have been shown in Europe, North America and Columbia.

Stephan is a permanent resident of Quebec, living in Montreal with his wife and two young daughters. He pursues his own artistic career while working for Antimodular Research, a new media art production studio headed by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.
