Ralf Baecker

Ralf Baecker (an artist who works at the school of Arts and sciences. Through installations and machines, Baecker explores the basic mechanisms of action and effectiveness of new media and technologies. In his characterization and spatialization of the micro process, he tried to broaden our view. The core of his object lies in virtuality and reality, or entanglement with the world. With the Media Archaeology vision, Ralf Baecker has excavated traces and functions that can still be detected in outdated devices. His work aims to form a hybrid of Contemporary Digital Aesthetics and historical understanding of materials. Therefore, he understood that technology is not a tool, but a tool of epistemology, so as to raise a question of the elements of a world that is considered as a world through technical impressions.
