Angela mercedes donna otto was born in 1983 in Bad Soden, Germany. she is a berlin based illustrator and graphic designer. especially all her free work (as well as some commissioned work where concept permits) are made according to “apophenia”. that’s a term used by psychologists to describe the mind’s will to construct meaning, order and forms even from chaotic structures - just like seeing faces in the clouds. since her thesis she did many more works based on coffee, tea and juice drippings, further experimenting with paper and fluids and improving the method. the “found” motifs are extracted from the patterns and details are worked out using colored ink. nonetheless her pictures give a wide range of interpretation and room the “see more”.
