(About) Anna Bierler works with the medium of writing, through publications, installations, reading groups and poetry. Her artistic practice stems from graphic design: she makes publications that explore how ecological narratives are experienced and disseminated. She focuses on the role language plays in the design of our imaginations and explores how using time as a design material can shape new perspectives that remedy fractured relationships with nature and alleviate eco-anxiety.
