About:

 

Marcelina Wellmer graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan/Poland in 2000 with a degree in video and drawing. She is a conceptual artist and photographer based in Berlin. As a media artist, she has been working with video, photography, objects and sound for the past 12 years, exploring symbiotic relations between people and interfaces of information exchange and media, exploring flawed processes of encoding and decoding.
In photography, Wellmer explores the powerful influence of humans on the landscape, the technological dependence, and isolation of a man in a modern world.
