Peter Geschwinds education includes the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, and Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Department of Sculpture, Stockholm.

He works with installations and physical animation with lights. Geschwind’s works take place in the realm of apparent motion. That is, it seems as if things are moving. When it comes to apparent motion, as with real motion, there’s a lot going on. It hinges on key bits and pieces that if removed would make it not an illusion.
