    Carsten Nicolai, born 1965 in Karl-Marx-Stadt, is part of an artist generation that works intensively in the transitional area between art and science. As a visual artist Nicolai seeks to overcome the separation of the art forms and genres through a holistic approach. He strives to overcome the separation of the sense perceptions by, for example, making sound and light frequencies perceivable for both eyes and ears, to sensitize the viewer to the connection of the different sensory levels. Other aspects of his works include the integration of error and chance as well as the implementation of mathematical, physical or natural phenomena and theories. He also has a special interest in so-called self organizing processes like the growing of snow crystals.
