Astrid Kraniger(* Munich) is an absolvent student of the art and media program at the Berlin University of the Arts since 2016 and attends the classes New Media and Computational Art. Previously, she completed her BA in Art and Multimedia at the Ludwigs-Maximilian-University in Munich. She works at the intersection between art and technology. Her work explores poetic moments that focus on the relationship between human, machine and nature. She is interested in the creation of machines and installations that raise questions of human concepts in contrast to a constantly changing environment. In the exploration for "the human" in the context of new technologies, she combines the sober performative way in which machines simulate and elaborate processes with natural materials and elements. She is living and working in Berlin.
