Oliver Hockenhull

Oliver Hockenhull works in film, video, hypermedia installations, writing, and design. He’s an artist who is a documentarian, screenwriter, communication theorist, stand-up philosopher, essayist and lecturer.  He has taught at Northwestern University in Chicago and presented at Universities in Canada, the US and Europe.

His media works — film, drama, documentaries, video art — have been called “sharp, smart, and visually elegant.”  He has concentrated on pivotal subjects: the social and intellectual import of the eminent writer, Aldous Huxley; an experimental film essay on evolution featuring Richard Dawkins (and the gorillas of the London Zoo); an essay on architecture extending from the early works of Mies van der Rohe to the steps of the Burning Ghats of Varanasi; a hyper media installation that questions ‘chance‘ — as quantum indeterminate noise — to edit film; a feature comedy collaboration with one of North America’s most outrageous theatre group on Shabbatai Zevi — ‘the other’ great Jewish Messiah; and now a double-versioned feature documentary on the renaissance in psychedelic research.

He is the Co-Director of Neurons to Nirvana: Understanding Psychedelic Medicines.
