Sandra Britz (+ MaggZ, Johanna Invrea, Antonia Gangi, Felix Neumann): Volatile
The project VOLATILE which was initiated by Melbourne-based movement and multidisciplinary artist MaggZ, explores the process of rapid deterioration and the return of homeostasis. The theme emerges from the experience of being in isolation during 2020, when humankind went through both internal and external turmoil as a collective, in the cycle of volatility: from initial decline, through deterioration, to peak deterioration before a return to homeostasis.
During the first digital residency of collide24, MaggZ, Sandra Britz, Antonia Gangi, Johanna Invrea and Felix Neumann played with the intertwinement—and contrariety—between nature and technologies, real-life and digital tales. The resulting work addresses the romantic worldview, the meaning of human existence in the universe, and trying to find our inner oasis in isolation.

Sandra Britz is an artist and designer working in the fields of graphic and motion design. Her work features a mix of carefully selected textures and colors that show the subject matter of the various works through an unconventional approach. Although the workflow is mostly experimental, the finished designs are rooted in a fascination with the subject, research and a very conceptual approach.

Poetry and mixed media artist motivated by social impact and positive discourse. I like to combine media fragments and archival footage with contrasting contemporary words to challenge what we see and what we think we know.
