Julian Wolkenstein is a Media Artist based in Sydney. His practice draws inspiration from a range of divergent interests and abilities that overlap in the consideration of the ongoing role and efforts of human mediation, of both the material world and that of the ethereal.

Underpinning this is an effort to keep in mind a position of the playful and the poetic.
