I am a German-British artist-researcher. I research human-machine interactions in photographic production. Through hands-on exploration and exposure of sensuous practices in the production of photographic realities, I claim that the photographic image becomes a co-produced subjective sense-making event that is more than visual and more than representational.
My posthumanist perspective challenges the dominant image of photography as a fixed object of visual representation. Led by sensory fieldwork and deep aesthetic analysis, my art practice shows as mixed media installations with sound, video, printed matter and photographic paper to participatory art, addressing topics such as displacement, deep matter and feminism. I have exhibited regionally and internationally with group and solo shows in the UK, US, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark. I was awarded the prestigious Attenborough Prize 2015.
Having pursued Communication and Media Studies (BA, HTW Berlin & Deakin University, Melbourne) and Photography Arts (MA, University of Westminster, London), I have been working at the intersection of art and research ever since. I am currently an AHRC funded PhD Doctoral candidate at NTU's Fine Art Department.
Born in 1978 and raised in East-Germany, I currently live and work in Nottingham and Berlin.
