Nicky Assmann (1980, NL) is a Rotterdam based artist with a background in Film and ArtScience. She combines artistic, scientific and cinematographic knowledge in experiments with physical processes aimed at sensorial interference. Against the background of our visual culture, in which the experience of reality increasingly takes place in the virtual domain, she returns to the corporal fundaments of seeing. In her artistic research, she combines topical technological developments with elementary physical processes.
Assmann holds a Bachelor of Arts in Media & Culture [Major Film Science] from the University of Amsterdam and a Master in ArtScience from the Interfaculty of the Royal Conservatoire & the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. She is part of the Macular art collective, which focuses on art, technology, science, and perception.
During this meetup Nicky Assmann will share her own experiences and views from the perspective of an artist active in the field, as well as show an artwork from her extensive archive.
