Ulla Nolden is a digital artist working at the intersection of art, design and technology. She investigates her perception of the subtleties of everyday reality through photography and algorithmic movement.

Having been brought up to be suspicious of art, Nolden first became a motion designer. Yet she remained intrigued by the philosophical questions raised by contemporary art.

Over the years Ulla Nolden developed her own aesthetic through daily photographs. Studying computer programming enabled her to fuse her motion design experience with an investigation of her visual perception of movement.

Nolden was born in Germany in 1968 and currently lives in Düsseldorf and London.
