Born in Burgenland, Austria in 1977. He earned a master's degree in media art from the University of Applied Arts Vienna, and a master's degree in interaction design from the Royal College of Art. In 2005, Tremmel and Shiho Fukuhara formed BCL, an artistic research framework, in London. He works out of Tokyo, where he mainly explores the impact of biotechnology development and water problems on society, and how our consciousness is reflected in natural, social and cultural environments. He also continues to work on activities outside the fields of science, art, and design. His mission is to use social hacking and other projects to break into closed technologies and monopolized markets to open them up to everyone. Tremmel currently works as a researcher in the Laboratory for DNA Information Analysis at the Human Genome Center at the University of Tokyo Institute of Medical Science, and as a visiting researcher at metaPhorest, a life aesthetic platform at the Hideo Iwasaki Lab at the Waseda University Faculty of Science and Engineering. He is the program director of BioClub, a platform to practice and discuss the potential of biotechnology.
