Katarina Hoeger uses code to generate or modify audio and visuals in her works. These audio and visuals augment a listeners’-viewers’-participants’ relationships with their bodies, their physical environments, and other humans. Many of Katarina’s works reflect her interest in sounds and motions fostered by lifelong participation in music and dance. These influences combined with the experience of having been raised with a variety of cultural and philosophical backgrounds shape the intention behind her works. Katarina aims to use her art to examine her physical and mental self, her environment, social structures, and the people she interacts with. She is interested in how art can be used to examine the relationships she and others have with each of the aforementioned entities.
