ANNA RIDLER

Anna Ridler, geboren 1985 in Großbritannien, arbeitet in einer Vielzahl von Medien, unter anderem Fotografie, Zeichnung, Technologie, Literatur, Installation und Sound. Mittlerweile arbeitet sie mehr und mehr mit Machine Learning und Artificial Intelligence und erforscht, wie wir menschliche Elemente in das Digitale einfügen können und wie ein Medium das steril und algorithmisch ist benutzt werden kann und eine menschliche Note beibehält. Ihre Arbeit handelt nicht von der Technologie an sich, sondern bedient sich dieser als ein Werkzeug um Themen wie  Erinnerung, Liebe und Verfall zu beleuchten und die Verbindung zwischen dem Greifbaren und dem Immateriellen zu erforschen.
