Juliana Maurer, originally trained as a graphic designer, researches nature and various materials like glass, ceramics and fungi. Main sources of inspiration are contrasts of aggregate states and the revelation of surprising material effects.
In the epoch of the Anthropocene, mankind no longer sees itself as part of nature, but as ruler of it. It exploits and destroys nature for its own purposes. The tendency of mankind to dominate nature will lead to nature dominating mankind and thereby erase traces of human activity. In this work the contrast between the manifestations of human works and the indestructible resilience of nature is mirrored in the materials: ubiquitous artificial man-made materials vs. the elements of living nature.
