Kerstin Ergenzinger, Berlin (Germany)
Kerstin Ergenzinger is an artist working in the fields of installation, electronic arts/new media and drawing. Her works explore the sensory and conceptual relationships between the individual and its physical surroundings. By focusing on processes of perception, on technologies and strategies applied in spatial and mental navigation and the production of knowledge, she investigates the limits of human perception and our capacity to comprehend and interpret our environment. How do you move in the world, and how does that feel? How does your body relate to other bodies and to its surroundings, and how can you define the coordinates of our own position? In response to these fundamental questions, she develops in her works diverse points of view that play with the opposition between metaphorical distance and physical immediacy. Alongside her studio practice she is frequently involved in collaborative projects and research projects in the fields of dance, music, film and science.
Kerstin Ergenzinger and the nuClock consortium will interface arts and quantum physics. Part of her work will be aligned with the European FEAT initiative; an action that brings together artists and FET projects. The mission of this action is two-fold: First, it seeks to explore how art work can be used as a novel channel to communicate contemporary research to a broad audience. Second, FEAT serves as a broad and open platform to discuss relations between the realms of arts and science from a philosophical point of view. The results of the joint art/science work will be shown at prestigious exhibitions and published in peer-reviewed journals.
