Timo Nasseri:

Born 1972 Berlin, Timo Nasseri lives and works in Berlin. Graduated from Lette-Verein, Berlin (1997).

Nasseri's work uses the means of natural science to open up a perspective for the poetic and fantastic. He takes his inspiration from mathematics, geometry and patterns and underlines their interconnectedness in terms of repetition and aesthetics in his drawings and sculptures. His practice is one that tackles the subject of infinity and that aims to solve puzzles, whether they are historical mysteries or explorations via mathematical theorems to discover an overarching order in the chaos of existence.
