On the occasion of her exhibition at Centrum the artist Ulla Nolden will speak about her work.
In her exhibition at Centrum, Ulla Nolden presents works that are informed by the artist’s fascination with the beauty of subtle yet intricate movements at the margins of everyday reality. In PURE MOVEMENTS Nolden consolidates the two main lines of her artistic enquiry of the past few years: translations of observed behavioural rules of movement into computational instructions and her photographic project EVERYDAY. Ulla Nolden is a digital artist working at the intersection of art, design and technology. Having been brought up to be suspicious of art, Nolden first became a motion designer. Yet she remained intrigued by the philosophical questions raised by contemporary art. Studying computer programming enabled her to fuse her motion design experience with an investigation of her visual perception of movement. Nolden was born in Germany in 1968 and currently lives in London and Dusseldorf. She was awarded her BA from the University of the Arts London in 1995 and received her MA in Computational Arts with distinction from Goldsmiths College London in 2015.
