VERENA BACHL is a Berlin-based artist.
* Wörth a.d. Donau I Germany
Inspired by experimental methods within contemporary art and design, natural sciences and engineering, her work could be seen as ongoing research, oscillating in the media art field. A particular interest of her applies to chaotic, nonlinear systems and creations, which are not only based on automatism but “life of its own” – this moment of autopoiesis when a complex or even chaotic system is capable of maintaining itself, coupled with its medium in continuous dynamic.
Her primary focus is not mere observation but initialization of phenomena and therefore the creation of artworks for producing and illustrating them. While exploring the transition area between the natural and the technological she reveals what it actually means to be human.
