Sybille Neumeyer is an artist and designer. She is currently living and working in Berlin/Germany. After finishing her studies in linguistics, art history and ethnology at Universität Würzburg, she made her diploma in communication design in 2008 at Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften Würzburg, Germany. In 2008 she was invited by Designlabor Bremerhaven for the interdisciplinary urban project vorübergehend* geöffnet awarded with the IF Concept Award, the Red Dot Communication Award in 2009 and nominated for the Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland in 2010. In her master studies information design/visual communication (Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften Würzburg/Hochschule der Künste Bern, Switzerland until 2011) she focused on explorative visual practice and artistic research. In her thesis she dealt with the role of the scientific picture in processes of cognition and knowledge.

In her works, she translates phenomena or incidences in nature, science and urban space into installations, moving images and stills, drawings, paper works and other media trying to create a dialog between the spectator and personal knowledge, memory and physical experience. In doing so she constantly explores the spatial and temporal relations, as well as the aesthetic gaps between different media. These works have been on view at national and international exhibitions.

The fellowship at Akademie Schloss Solitude (2011–2012) was followed by invitations of international institutions (POGON & MSU Zagreb, Croatia; ARCUS Project, Japan; THAV, Taiwan; HIAP, Finland and NAC/Lithuania; i. a.) which allow her to develop and deepen her projects within the framework of art residencies and exhibition support. Her work song for the last queen was awarded the Aesthetica Art Prize in 2014.
