Refrakt (DE)

Refrakt is a Berlin-based artist collective and design studio, working on transmedia projects in mixed realities at the intersections of art, design, technology and models of perception. In 2015 they developed the augmented reality app Refrakt in collaboration with Michael Schröder and have been working together with him ever since. In a digital society, where technology increasingly starts to shape our perception and behaviour in everyday life, their work focuses on the nature of the medium itself. They have a background in visual communication and work in editorial design—either in a classic form or combined with new media. In their conceptual artwork, they primarily use augmented reality to reflect on today’s communication and overall changes caused by the digitization of our lives.
