About the artwork
In alchemy, the term chrysopoeia (Greek) means transmutation into gold.
Chrysopoeia is part of Sonic Materia project series initiated by Nikolai von Sallwitz that is interpreted by various visual artists, graphic- and motion designers. It is about more space for pure visions and experiments likewise interaction and networking with futurebrains of design.
SUSI SIE (1982) is a Berlin-based artist whose work moves between the fields of art and science. She is on a mission to explore the physical and mathematical nature of unusual forms, substances and materials to show the hidden beauty and magic of our natural world that constantly surrounds us. Strictly applying analog techniques and refusing any computer animations or effects, Susi Sie’s haptic and detailed work is above all a highly personal study of the genuineness, perception and authenticity of things. Susi Sie’s work has been featured by internationally renowned online platforms such as Fubiz, Gizmodo, The Creators Project, This Is Colossal, Motionographer and Arte Creative, has been exhibited around the globe (New York, London, Paris, Rome, Sao Paulo, Norway) and won several Vimeo Staff Picks and awards at international film festivals. She studied video art in Maastricht (2002-2006) and worked in a Cologne-based post production agency (2006-2011).
