Carsten Nicolai is part of an artist generation who works intensively in the transitional area between art and science. He seeks to overcome the separation of the sensual perceptions of man by making scientific phenomenons like sound and light frequencies perceivable for both eyes and ears. Many of the works seem generative, creating beauty from chaos.
Further aspects of his works consider the integration of chance as well as the inspection of the interchanging relations of micro and macro structures. Special interest he also puts on so-called self-organizing processes, for example the growing of snow crystals.
