Since 1993, Lisa Schmitz’ works have concentrated primarily on spatial installations, environments, interventions in urban areas, interpassive / intercontemplative communication projects and photo series (the Inter View Series). The artist focuses on thematic complexes within extended contexts in the field of perception and representation. The content of her work circles around an aesthetic investigation into complex, connected levels of meaning concerning man – machine – space – time – communication. She is equally interested in their reception and in the fascination which lies in changes to our scientific view of the world. Her works pose questions on human behaviour in face of the present development from the waning industrial age to the age of in-/exformation. They are concerned with needs, fears, aims and hopes
