Intermedial Artist and Computer Scientist
mother of two daughters (*1995, *2005)

Since 2017 I work as scientist in the field of personal hearing systems at Fraunhofer IDMT Oldenburg, starting with the citizen science project "Hear How You Like To Hear". My research method is influenced by sound art and music concrète.

Beside this I realize art installations with sound, light and electronics, mainly the melting Twilight Ice Sculpture.


After a photo-technical education I first dedicated myself to various kinds of performing arts: music, theatre, pantomime, dance. I worked furthermore on photography, Super 8 film and video predominantly in environments for stages and live acts performances and behind the camera at live recordings in television.

With the study of computer science at the Technical University Berlin, since 1999 the computer generated technologies became my major means of expression.
