aesthetic moments in the sciences

For me it all started with a curiosity for mathematics, technology and computers. I was especially fascinated with cryptography and space travel. I realized, if I wanted to participate in creating the future I had to learn how computers and the internet worked and how to program and build machines. This lead me to study physics.

When studying statistical mechanics, I was fascinated by the principle of „universality“, which says some properties of systems can be largely independent of their underlying structure. Thats why, in my advanced studies, I specialized in the theoretical physics’ discipline of complex systems.
I studied Arabic and philosophy on the side.

I continued my studies at art school, with a Master of Arts in Digital Media, a course combining media art, media theory, media design and media informatics. I followed my passion for music and dance and picked study courses dealing with sound design, algorithmic composition and dance.

Now I produce artistic experiences of fundamental scientific questions. The works consist of visual art, new media art, electronic music, dance and instruments I design.

I have performed and exhibited at CTM Berlin, Ars Electronica in Linz, Transmediale Berlin and internationally in NYC, LA, Amsterdam and other places. I speak six natural languages and 10+ programming languages.

I also speak at conferences as an expert on VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality), XR (mixed reality) and AI (artificial intelligence).
