Ralf Baecker is an artist working at the interface of art, science and technology. His practice explores fundamental mechanisms of new media and technologies. In his representations and specializations of digital and technological processes he offers a poetic sight behind the surfaces of contemporary technological infrastructures, its material dimension, complex and self-organising systems. At the core of his objects lies the entanglement of the virtual with the real. His work seeks to form a hybrid between contemporary digital methodologies and a material oriented artistic practice. As a result, he understands technology not as a tool but rather as an epistemological instrument, in order to pose elemental questions about a world perceived through technological impressions.
Since 2016 he teaches at the University of the Arts Bremen as Professor for Experimental Design of New Technologies.
