CERN Accelerating science

Bauer’s independent work focuses on questions of time, in particular the disjunction between our experience of it and how it appears to function (or not) at scales beyond the human, through a range of media including video, installation, drawing and sculpture.

Bauer studied art and architecture at the Cooper Union and has an MA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, London. She has screened and exhibited internationally including at Tate Britain, the ICA and The Showroom, London; The Sharjah Biennale 13, UAE; The Busan Biennale, Korea; Deste Foundation, Athens; and The New Museum and Socrates Sculpture Park, New York.

Her work 'Scalar Oscillation' (2018) explores the idea of time and how is understood in the contemporaneity. Through the use of text, graphics, animations and immersive sound, Diann Bauer, in collaboration with composer Seth Ayyaz, aims to discuss and project the notion of time and scale at a fundamental level, and in doing so, highlight how these realities are completely exotic to us as humans.

'Scalar Oscillation' (2018) is co-produced by ScANNER (Science and Art Network for New Exhibitions and Research) founded by Arts at CERN, FACT Liverpool, CCCB Barcelona, Le Lieu Unique Nantes and IMal Brussels.
