Regine Debatty's interview with


Agnes Meyer-Brandis

"...I discovered (Agnes Meyer-Brandis's) work by chance while clicking from a festival website to another. I was a bit puzzled to be honest. Elfs? Vertical Breezometer? Mobile borehole? In February things got a bit clearer when I saw one of her installations, SGM-Iceberg-Probe, which won an award at Transmediale.

Meyer-Brandis' background is both in science and art. Her work combines pure science and creativity to explore the zone between fact and fiction, fantasy and technology. Her current focus is on “fantastic” augmented reality and other participatory urban interventions.

She also holds a teaching position at the university of applied sciences Düsseldorf, is frequently lecturing at other universities and conferences and seems to tour the world to receive awards. She is the founder of the "Forschunsgfloss / Research Raft for Subterranean Reefology”, a small institute whose chief aim is to explore and confirm subterranean phenomena."
