VIVA ANTONIA MEYER

*1988 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Toni Meyer studierte an der Universität der Künste in Berlin und am Goldsmiths College in London.
In ihren Arbeiten ist die digitale Technik Hilfsmittel, um das Wahrgenommene und fotografisch Auf-
genommene zu verändern, aber nur gerade so, dass man es beim zweiten Mal Hinschauen merkt.
Dabei konfrontiert Toni Meyer Betrachter*innen mit ihrem teils schnelllebigen Wahrnehmungsverhalten
und stellt es auf die Probe. Ausgangspunkt und Motor der Bilderrätsel ist meist die Großstadt mit dazu-
gehöriger Konsumkultur. Toni Meyer lebt und arbeitet zur Zeit in München.

Toni Meyer studied at the University of the Arts in Berlin and at Goldsmiths College in London.
In her work, digital technology is a tool to amend the perceived and the recorded. With her picture
puzzles, Toni Meyer confronts viewers with their sometimes fast-paced perceptual behavior and puts it
to the test. Big cities and consumer culture are often the starting point of her pictures.
Toni Meyer lives and works in Munich.
