ar video animation graphic installation

The world in the mirror, at the intersection of multidisciplinary and multimedia forms of expression. My work deals with phenomena of the analog-digital interplay, which are represented in closed systems. I focus on the individual, its encoded behaviour and function within calculated, constructed, simulated forms of reality and system of masses. I investigate in orchestration and recurrent processes.  There, the inherent digital – that can be a mathematically algorithmic principle of a plot, a score or a choreography – is confronted with the uncertainty and unpredictability of the genuine.

Barbara studied Fine Arts at the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste, Saarbrücken (Germany), specialising in new media art/digital art. In 2007 she graduated as Meisterschülerin of Ulrike Rosenbach and founded the artist-duo LABOR 45 with Kat Petroschkat, primarily working with electronic analog-digital mash ups, handmade interfaces and code until 2014. Since 2013/14 she has been realizing collaborative mixed media projects with Florian Huth.
