Kirsten Geisler 3D sculptures from her series "virtual Beauties" deal with ideals of beauty and the obsession with beauty within an increasingly digitized and virtualized society. They are precursors in media art. Today many of these sculptures belong to international museums and private collection.
With "Who are You?" 1996, Geisler, one of the first female media artists, created a virtual 3D sculpture in the visual arts and took up the socio-political debate around virtual and digital nature along with self-construction. In subsequent works of this series she extended the repertoire of the virtual 3D character and invited the viewer to interact with it.
The current version will cross the boundaries between the real and virtual world. Maya Brush, an artificial figure, mediates between both worlds. Unique, and for the first time, this virtual sculpture will leave the museum and art space to take a daring step into real life. She will feel as much at home in the real world of media publicity and global communication networks as in the museums themselves, to whom she will keep on returning rich of real experiences.
