OpenEndedGroup comprises two digital artists: Marc Downie and Paul Kaiser.

Their pioneering approach to digital art frequently combines three signature elements: non-photorealistic 3D rendering; the incorporation of body movement by motion-capture and other means; and the autonomy of artworks directed or assisted by artificial intelligence.

Over the last seventeen years they have worked in the broadest variety of media and venues: making art for façade, gallery, dance, stage and cinema. Their works respond to an ever-expanding range of materials — drawing, film, motion capture, photography, music, and architecture.

Always in collaboration and always crossing disciplinary boundaries, they enter and exit fields without permission from, and without deference to, established disciplinary structures, finding new ways to conceive the world.

In recent years, The Museum of Modern Art has acquired eight of their pioneering 3D films for its permanent collection; the Isabella Stewart Gardner Musuem has commissioned from them two 3D films and a forthcoming multi-screen 3D installation; the New York, the Berlin, and the Rome Film Festivals have premiered new films of theirs; and the University of Chicago, IRCAM, Stanford, and the University of Michigan have hosted them in extended artist-in-residencies.
