Veronika Krenn studied Interface Cultures at the University of Art and Industrial Design in Linz. Her works are in the field of new media, interactive art and Eat Art, with a focus on the manipulation of already known and everyday objects. She investigates traditional arts and crafts as well as food as a medium to develop unconventional communication strategies that act as carriers for socially relevant problems through daily habits.
Together with Vesela Mihaylova, they founded the Prazlab collective and have been working on edible interfaces and data tasks since 2012. In 2014 they received the Gabriele Heidecker Award for the Taste of Data series.
A solo exhibition was dedicated to Prazlab at the Foods for Thoughts Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria. She also presented her work at V&A, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, MNAC Contemporary Museum of Bucharest, the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, the Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interfaces and Sonar Festival, Barcelona.
