Maurits Boettger


Maurits Boettger, born in 1990 in Karlsruhe, Germany, lives and works with time in space
2012-2017 Studies at Academy of Media Arts Cologne
2014 Studies at Universidad Nacional de Colombia

In his work Maurits Boettger questions processes in perception of time and space. He deconstructs information carriers such as light, sound, air and through targeted interventions, allows changes in perspective that make the observer aware of his perception. Boettger treats time like a medium. In a playful way he manipulates cosmic, biological and physical timepieces so they allow time to be experienced differently. His works are shows as video, apparatus, installations or interaktive applications
