About Marika Berlind:
Combining her love and knowledge of astronomy, mathematics, and art, Marika Berlind’s work features captivating interpretations of astrophysical-cosmological concepts, in order to reveal their visual, theoretical, and philosophical implications. “I wish to provide an alternate means by which to explore science, through a momentary visual experience of ‘living in the universe’ ” she explains. She is interested in issues of ‘vastness’, ‘the infinite’, ‘chaos’, ‘multidimensionality’, ‘parallel spaces’, and the ‘relative role of Earth and human consciousness within the universe’. She hopes to open a door for the questioning of our role as observers in our formation of scientific ‘truth’.
Her recent body of work titled Another Universe covers four themes: ‘Strings'(multi-dimensional energy units); ‘Holes'(time-distorting space regions), ‘Scapes'(imaginary scapes between here and alien worlds) and ‘Folds'(entangled layers of space). These range from a focus on the visual to a focus on the theoretical, and all feature a wonderful sense of light, color, motion and concept, as she constantly challenges the viewer to go beyond their normal limits of perception. Berlind received her BA from Princeton and her MFA from Rhode Island School of Design and she is now located in San Francisco, California.
