Technological change, communication systems, and the intersections between art, science and philosophy.
Backen's practice traverses sculpture, projections, sound and light works, concerned with technological change, communication systems, and the intersections between art, science and philosophy.
Robyn Backen is an interdisciplinary artist whose work makes connections between art, science and philosophy. Her installations actively engage with the spaces they inhabit, whether gallery, landscape or building: the site provides the structural and associative framework for both formal and conceptual elements. Backen has a poetic approach which includes topics such as randomness and pattern, body and language, borders and connections, distance and proximity. She investigates patterns of language and rhythms of nature to build works which engage with physical space. Backen's teaching draws upon more than 20 years of research into technology and materials. She has examined the phenomena of change in society and created artworks that often engage with the languages of communication.
