In this week’s session of the Virtual Colloquium we will have Susanna Hertrich as our guest.
Presenting “Sensorium of Animals” an artistic research project co-conducted with Shintaro Miyazaki at the Critical Media Lab in Basel. Here, we intertwined the cyborgian, electronics-like trait of the elephant-nose fish with the seemingly immaterial worlds of our signal-based information technologies. We ask whether it might be possible to develop and cultivate EM sense similar to that of the fish for the human sensory apparatus.
Susanna Hertrich works as an artist, designer and educator. She has a record of artistic research in collaboration with Meta Perception Group at the University of Tokyo, Design Research Lab at the UdK in Berlin, TASML Tsinghua University Art & Science Laboratory in Beijing, and Critical Media Lab at the HGK FHNW in Basel.
Her work is exhibited internationally, including 23. Triennale, Milan; HEK, Basel; HKW, Berlin; Boston Center for the Arts; Vienna Biennial/MAK; Vitra Design Museum; V&A Dundee; CAFA art museum, Beijing, and Transmediale. Next to her artistic practice, she eads the MA in Experimental Design at the HGK FHNW.
