Jan de Ruiter (Bielefeld)

My name is Jan de Ruiter. In addition to my work as a Cognitive Scientist at Bielefeld University, my great passion is photography.

We are continuously surrounded by the elusive beauty of empirical reality. One way to appreciate this beauty is to freeze time and focus our attention on small selections of it. Photography is an art form that makes this possible.

I am therefore very happy, that I have been granted the opportunity to spend some time as Photographer in Residence at the ZiF.

The ZiF programme Artist in Residence is intended to encourage the exchange between scholars and artists, mutual productive stimuli are desired.
