about

Hey there! I am Katharina and I am currently student at the Art University in Linz in the department textile.art.design. I really enjoy the tactile and visual qualities that textiles offer and combine different techniques and visions into a sensual experience – in art as well as in design. A reoccurring topic for me is language and words as a way of visual expression. I also often occupy myself with change and decay, dealing with the human body and the way it influences its surroundings and how the body is reacting to its environment. I am interested in the relationship that develops between the work that I create and the viewer or consumer of this work and I therefore encourage an interactive approach to experience my work.
