Between analogue and digital
I grew up in a place with great respect for nature and traditions, with a rotary phone and a 4-party line, and now I’m talking with voice assistants and make worldwide video calls. I’m part of the last generation that was trained with tracing paper, ink pens and razor blades and part of the first, that never used it at work.
The futuristic Artificial Intelligence, so much dreamed by many writers and directors of the 70s, arrived earlier than expected. We are travelling virtually at supersonic speeds in a globalized world, buying online and forgetting about reality.
Having experienced both dimensions I like to join these two seemingly distant worlds, using both my manual skills and the advantages of technology, starting with a virtual project and ending up in my workshop with hammer, nails, thread and needle.
“Every experience in your life takes you one step ahead in being unique.”
– Susanne Rastschiller
The rough beauty of the mountains, the graceful vivacity of Mozart’s and Strauss’ music, the authenticity of ancient traditions, the memories of Sissi’s elegance and the variety of a multi-ethnic empire, Sigmund Freud’s psychological theory and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s physical practice, the subtle but endearing humour of a people that learned to take it easy.
The extraordinary multitude of landscapes, where Da Vinci’s eclecticism meets Michelangelo’s impetus and 1st century architecture meets 21st century design, the surprising simplicity of a superb culinary art, Columbus who reaches America on ocean waves and Marconi on radio waves, “La dolce vita” of a people that survives through the art of making do.
Susanne Ratschiller’s creativity is a combination of Austrian authenticity and Italian flair: inspirations from nature with a glamorous touch, clean essential shapes with traces of life experiences, historic genius overhauled with a wink. Due to multicultural origins and a wide range of work experiences she assimilated a variety of sensations, feelings, ways of living and thinking, that generated a cosmopolitan identity which characterizes her works.
